Complete with a lede that includes the “Johnny Manziel money sign,” we have reports out of Columbus that city officials (clad in Browns gear) believe it’s only a matter of time before Cleveland Browns Training Camp heads south on I-71. Mayor Michael B. Coleman, City Council President Andrew J. Ginther and Franklin County Commissioner John O’Grady
The Cleveland Browns were blown out this week in the home finale versus in-state rival Cincinnati Bengals, 30-0. The team was completely outplayed by the Bengals in all phases of the game. The offense was shutdown, unable to score and even move the ball. But the real surprise was the fall of the Browns’ defense.
Long-time quarterback Bernie Kosar lambasted the Cleveland Browns — across multiple ownerships and management teams — during an interview Mike Trivisonno on WTAM this week. Now, Tim Couch is in on the team as well, preaching continuity and sticking up for Brian Hoyer courtesy of Pat McManamon at ESPN. “I thought everything he said was right,” Couch
Mike Pettine spoke with the media on Monday, and when he was asked point blank if he genuinely believes Johnny Manziel gives the Browns the best chance to win, he couldn’t do it. Instead of saying it, that Manziel puts the team in the best position for success, he re-worded the question in the answer
This isn’t a rumor. It’s not news. This is fun with sports opinion from Rolling Stone (of all places). Greg Couch writes a speculative post setting a scenario that he has no factual proof of, but I found it so fun to read “Johnny Manziel’s Very Public Pantsing” that I’m sharing it here anyway. Yes,
Will Gibson has been writing at WFNY since September. That’s what he said anyway, and I didn’t feel like looking. It’s about time we got to know the man who has been writing so many interesting posts. We discussed a great number of things over the approximate 40 minutes we chatted. Here are some… Browns vs.
The start of the Johnny Football era was a disaster as the Cincinnati Bengals dismantled the Cleveland Browns 30-0, proving to be a harsh welcome of Johnny Manziel to the AFC North. The Browns offense reverted back to the “same old Browns” never giving the team a chance to win the game. The run defense was non-existent.
The Cleveland Browns were embarrassed in their second meeting with the Cincinnati Bengals. Johnny Manziel was only one component to that as the Browns defense gave up rushing yards in embarrassing bunches. The Browns failed in pretty much every phase of the game and from the very beginning. The Bengals punched first and that was
In this week’s SI media article by Richard Deitsch, he goes inside FOX’s preparation to call Johnny Manziel’s first professional start. Deitsch talked to Kevin Burkhardt about the 20-minute production meeting he, John Lynch and Pam Oliver and producers had speaking directly to Johnny Manziel. It sounds like Lynch was pretty direct with the young
According to one Bernie Kosar, it wasn’t Johnny Manziel or the horrid defense that was to blame for the team’s 30-0 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals; it was the “uneducated” front office. “They don’t know how to lead and organize and set a culture for doing what you have to do to play winning NFL
Cleveland Browns wide receiver Andrew Hawkins stood before his locker, surrounded by dozens of local reporters and delivered an impassioned, straight-from-the-mind speech regarding his decision to wear a t-shirt during pre-game warm-ups on Sunday that was a call for justice in the wake of the death of 12-year-old Tamir Rice. The shirt was later condemned as being
Merril Hoge doesn’t like Johnny Manziel’s game and hasn’t for some time. He’s been a frequent, loud critic of the young Browns QB ever since draft day. Ahead of Manziel’s first start, he certainly wasn’t backing off. He suggested that anyone responsible for drafting Manziel needed to be fired on ESPN before saying Manziel should
It’s the saddest walk in America. If you’ve trod that ground yourself, you already know what I’m talking about. It’s the walk back to the City of Cleveland Municipal Parking Lot from FirstEnergy Stadium after a Cleveland Browns loss. It’s a walk of silence, of disappointment, of introspection. It’s nothing like the walk to the
We prefer talking sports to politics, but sometimes the two cross over. On Sunday, Browns wide receiver Andrew Hawkins made a statement about the recent deaths of Tamir Rice and John Crawford by wearing a t-shirt during warm-ups. Tamir Rice was the 12-year-old boy who was shot by a Cleveland police officer within two seconds
The hype was palpable. There were gifs and references and tweets from national folks of all shapes and sizes. Yahoo! was in the house. The New York Times were on hand. ESPN had a litany of individuals inside of the FirstEnergy Stadium press box. FOX had the graphics all fired up and ready to go.
Hindsight is painful sometimes. After the Browns were decimated from beginning to end by the Bengals in Cleveland with faint playoff hopes still alive, it all seems so silly to think they might have been able to rattle off three wins in a row to keep playoff dreams alive. The Browns do have a way
Johnny Manziel still doesn’t seem overwhelmed by the moment, personally, but his performance is all a part of the Browns being completely overwhelmed by the Cincinnati Bengals in the first half. They trail the team from Cincitucky 20-0. Manziel sported a 12.0 QB rating at halftime as he went four for nine for 22 yards
The Cleveland Browns were off to an awful start trailing the Bengals 17-0 when things got much worse. Joe Haden slowly walked (limped?) to the locker room. It was a big mystery because nobody on the TV broadcast noticed any play where Haden might have been injured. And it was just part of the disaster
The Cleveland Browns are having a miserable day on the lakefront today as they trail the Bengals big in the first half, 17-0. That doesn’t mean that opposing teams can walk all over Cleveland Browns fans. After one rushing touchdown, Bengals running back Jeremy Hill attempted to jump into the stands to say hello to
