Missed opportunities galore

Just one of them from the ABJ.

Browns receiver Braylon Edwards had knifed between two defenders on a skinny post. Nothing except well-worn sod separated Edwards and the end zone about 60 yards away. It was late in the first quarter and the Browns already owned a surprising 7-0 lead over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday night. All quarterback Trent Dilfer needed was a strike. In baseball parlance, he threw a 98-mph fastball to the screen. The pass sailed past Edwards’ outstretched hands.

There were several of these moments last night, including Northcutt’s drop near the end of the half. Story of the Browns for the last, oh, 12 years?
