The Cleveland Browns might someday dominate the defensive line when they get Ahtyba Rubin and Phil Taylor back. That won’t be the case this Sunday. The Browns injury report as of Friday says that Rubin, Dimitri Patterson and (of course) Scott Fujita are out. Mohamed Massaquoi, Trent Richardson and Tashaun Gipson are questionable. The probables

Could the Browns offense benefit from contract years?

Watson Excessive Celebration John Kuntz PD

The Browns imported quite a bit to their offense from this most recent NFL draft between Trent Richardson, Brandon Weeden and right tackle Mitchell Schwartz. Meanwhile Mike Holmgren has been on record predicting a “big jump” for the team this year. If that ever comes to pass, the rookies will certainly be a part of

Is Montario Hardesty Tom Heckert’s Big Miss?

11134612-standard

Montario Hardesty is slowly seeing his name etched into the side of the seemingly mile-long stretch of stone. It’s a slab rife with names of second-round draft selections who merely never seemed to get it together and excel inCleveland. The reasons are boundless, but in this instance more than any, Hardesty’s fate is in his

Are the Browns overrating their own running backs?

Brandon-Jackson-Thumbnail

One thing that persists as a dark cloud over the Browns is the wide receiver situation from last season. The Browns drafted Greg Little and brought in Jordan Norwood, but the statements that will forever hang in the air are words of confidence in a depth chart featuring Mohamed Massaquoi and Brian Robiskie at the

What if the Browns had some good luck?

Benard Celebrates

We all know the Browns were bad last year. I think most of us also know that the Browns were pretty unlucky as well. I believe that you make your own luck to some extent by dealing well with adversity. The Browns certainly didn’t do that last season. Regardless, there’s almost no denying the bad

2012 Could Look Like 2011 for Browns in Free Agency

How much of the plan includes Brandon Jackson in 2012?

Finally with the Super Bowl completed the Browns can get to work trying to get better.  They will more than likely do it without blockbusters again this off-season.  By that, I mean I don’t expect the strategy to vary wildly.  The Browns probably won’t be in any kinds of bidding wars unless they decide that

Hillis Will be Back if He Wants to Be Back

Peyton Hillis

According to a report by Mary Kay Cabot yesterday Peyton Hillis might have done enough for the Browns to reverse previous course and consider bringing the big bruiser back.  While I don’t doubt that with Hillis’ late-season surge after finally getting healthy enough to get on the field, I am not sure how much exactly

Despite Early Frustrations Patience Is Still In Order

Browns Put Brandon Jackson on IR, Cut Roster

Before we even got to know Brandon Jackson as a Cleveland Browns running back, he will miss the season with turf toe.  On the one hand it is pretty devastating to find out that the premier free agent from the off-season won’t see a single down of regular season action.  On the other hand, it

On the Browns and Taylor Mays

I’m not even sure, exactly why I am talking about Taylor Mays.  I guess mostly for a couple of reasons.  Last year before the Browns drafted Joe Haden and T.J.

Cleveland Browns Tackle Football Tonight: What Are You Hoping To See?

I only ask because I remember how overly encouraged I became when Jake Delhomme took the first team down the field this time last year with the precision of a surgeon.  That didn’t end up translating into the healthiest of regular seasons though, and I’m legitimately wondering what a successful Pat Shurmur debut would look like tonight when the
