The Onion pokes fun at the Browns

Ray Farmer

It’s only satire, but things sometimes hit the hardest when they ring the most true.

The Seahawks might target Jordan Cameron

Jordan Cameron Cleveland Browns

The Cleveland Browns have already said they won’t be as active in free agency this year as they were last year. That makes some sense because you can’t be as active as the Browns were a year ago every single season. What’s usually not included in that free agency equation is the re-signing of a

Mike Pettine outlasts Mike Smith in bad coaching competition

Mike Pettine Mike Smith

Sunday’s Cleveland Browns game against the Atlanta Falcons was not a fine showing of head coaching skills. I wondered aloud on Twitter if Falcons coach Mike Smith had been fired yet, and I wasn’t just making a joke. I still like Mike Pettine and his team seems to rally around him and play for him,
