Successful NFL franchises are built upon the cyclical nature of the athletes on their team. The team drafts new players to be taken under the wing of veteran players in their prime, and the front office supplements the roster with useful but inexpensive players for depth. The prime veteran players are allowed to leave before
Travis Benjamin is having a great year, and statistically he has the best hands.
Browns fans are predictable creatures of habit. And the Browns are kind of like a bad habit.
Including familiar faces, previous meetings, and the shared misery of Jets and Browns fans
There have been more downs than ups over the past 15 seasons. That only makes our favorite players mean that much more.
Sports Illustrated’s Sportsman of the Year is an annual must-read. Sadly, that the national recognition rarely has anything to do with the teams or individuals whom we cover. In turn, WFNY will soon announce its choice for 2014’s Cleveland Sportsman of the Year. Here’s one of the nominations for that honor by an WFNY writer.
There’s just something about former Cleveland Browns receivers that makes for good memes. Braylon Edwards was a favorite target (get it?) for Browns fans for years and now that we no longer have to hope that Greg Little figures it out, he’s became the latest favorite. I feel a little bit badly because Little was
Through two disappointing games, your Cleveland Browns have been among the most pass-happy teams in a pass-happy 2013 NFL. Overall, the Browns have attempted 90 passes — 86 Brandon Weeden, four Jason Campbell — which ranks seventh-most in football. One of the biggest benefactors of those targets has been third-year receiver Greg Little, ye’ of the
Again this week, I thought I’d skip the bullet points and just send you the email I sent to Scott the night before the podcast. Wherever we end up is based on this email and the conversation that ensues. We ended up talking about concussions in football, Tribe attendance and any number of other topics
Times are tough in the Big Apple as a pair of former Cleveland Browns wide receivers could be vying for one spot on the New York Jets’ 53-man roster. The New York Daily News reports that veteran, and former first-round pick Braylon Edwards could be on the outside looking in after New York opted to
The WFNY Podcast makes a triumphant return. The opening is absolutely ridiculous now, as you’ll hear. The highlight clips have LeBron and Braylon Edwards! This is the last time you’ll hear it, but we thought it would be funny to play it one last time. As for the rest, we’re Browns heavy. Topics include: Rick
As Mike Holmgren came out front to talk about the Browns last week, he was asked frequently about the Browns and how they feel about their wide receivers. Out of one side of his mouth, Holmgren proclaimed his love for Mohamed Massaquoi and stated his expectations of the receiver are high. Out of the other
The Bengals lost Jerome Simpson this off-season and now it seems like they might have found a target to replace him to go opposite A.J. Green. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported on Monday’s edition of NFL Live that the Bengals have expressed interest in free agent receiver Braylon Edwards… The 29-year-old Edwards’ market never developed during
I’ll admit that I had an ulterior motive when I set about putting together the list of the best Browns since 1999. It was spawned from a conversation with a friend where we decided to figure out if the best Browns since 1999 could field a team that would be favored year-in and year-out over
Kevin Johnson won this one, but it was close with Braylon Edwards. We all know that Edwards is a polarizing figure among Browns fans. He never lived up to the spot he was drafted by most accounts. His drops have become a favorite punchline. Still, there’s no doubting Edwards ability and some of the numbers
We all know that the Browns and their 4-12 record missed the playoffs, but it had me thinking. Are there even any influential players left in the playoffs that are former Browns? Obviously guys playing special teams for San Francisco are important like Blake Costanzo are important, but I’m excluding guys like that. I mean
Imagine that? The Browns were 9.5 point underdogs and they lost by 10 points to the San Francisco 49ers. The Browns were their own worst enemy all game long fumbling the ball and generally not having any kind of tempo on offense. So the Browns fall to 3-4 and will need to lick their wounds
The Browns are 3-3. How is that possible? After a game against Seattle that set offensive football (and I do mean offensive! [rim shot]) back 40 years, the Browns will find their task much tougher this week as they travel to the left coast to play the red hot 49ers. Maybe Jim Harbaugh will cause
