Next man up… It’s a game within the game in the NFL as players try to stay healthy enough to play 16 full games. Well, Jordan Cameron is out this week with a banged up shoulder, so there goes his perfect season of health. Other Browns inactives include Barkevious Mingo with a shoulder as well,
The Cleveland Browns not only trailed massively at the end of the first half, but they also lost their first string running back Ben Tate to an apparent knee injury. #Browns RB Ben Tate has knee injury. Return questionable. Was hurt on his best run of day. — Scott Petrak ct (@ScottPetrak) September 7, 2014
Johnny Manziel is Johnny Football is Johnny Cleveland.
Just a bright-eyed kid reaping the benefits of being his father’s only son and therefore earning a seat next to pops at each and every Browns home game.
The pre-season game number four is pretty bleak in terms of quality football. Apparently it’s so casual a game for the NFL (who charges full price for tickets) that they don’t bother checking to see if every player has a unique uniform number.
We all knew Johnny Manziel was going to bring attention to the Browns and have some endorsements. Let’s just say that I didn’t anticipate “Johnny JamBoogie.” It’s a funny ad though.
I was happy to have Dave Sterling (@dimoko) back on the podcast. We started out accidentally discussing public urination and ended with the breaking news that Josh Gordon’s year-long suspension has been upheld by the NFL. We also talked about Kevin Love and his “decision” to come to the Cleveland Cavaliers. We talked about LeBron
As the Cleveland Browns’ wide receiver issues continue into the fourth week of the preseason, one interesting name is bubbling up in the NFL trade rumor mill in the New York Jets’ Stephen Hill. ESPN New York’s Rich Cimini believes the Jets should and will try and trade Hill, with the player potentially being a roster casualty
In the wake of the Rams losing Sam Bradford to an ACL tear, it’s natural to wonder if the Browns’ own QB isn’t coming back too quickly. It hasn’t even been a year since Brian Hoyer tore his ACL against Buffalo and he’s back out there as the Cleveland Browns starter. When talking about the
Even after last Monday night’s lackluster passing performances by Brian Hoyer and Johnny Manziel, head coach Mike Pettine called for an end to the quarterback competition, naming Hoyer the starter. Whether you believe the he “won” the job rather than had it handed to him, only one thing seemed clear: Manziel is not ready to
Johnny Manziel’s $4.3 million signing bonus just took a small hit on Friday as the league fined him $12,000 for the Finger Seen ‘Round the World. Per NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport, Manziel is allegedly weighing an appeal. Johnny Manziel is still weighing whether to appeal his $12,000 fine for flipping the bird. #thebird — Ian Rapoport
Mike Pettine isn’t buying in to the hype. With rookie quarterback Johnny Manziel losing the Cleveland Browns’ preseason competition, many throughout the league expected the team to utilize a two-quarterback system that would allow the mobile, play-making Manziel to have a package of plays designed for his unique skill set, subbing him in for Brian Hoyer
In what is bound to be the most blown-out-of-context quote of the week, Cleveland Browns head coach Mike Pettine stated that he envisions a scenario where Johnny Manziel does not take a live snap during the entire 2014 season. Take a look for yourself (emphasis mine). “Give me a crystal ball and I’ll give you
Our gazes remained fixed, for an extra moment. As he began to realize, my trivia question wasn’t merely rhetorical. “Rocky Colavito to Detroit, for Harvey Kuenn. April 17, 1960.” His countenance had morphed into a half-smile/furrowed brow combo. He was clearly thinking: “You’re really coming at me with the easy, ‘what’s the worst trade in
“Whatcha gonna do?” We now know that Johnny Manziel won’t be starting against the Pittsburgh Steelers, assuming Brian Hoyer is healthy. We also haven’t seen Johnny Manziel in any non-football videos lately. Sure one of the football-related ones will presumably get him fined for flipping the bird. But now, Johnny has all the excuse he
We already knew the Browns were valuable because Jimmy Haslam paid a big price to buy the team from the Lerner family. Just how valuable are the Browns relative to the rest of the league? Forbes says the Browns are 22nd. Team value: $1.12 billion Revenue 2013: $276 million Operating income 2013: $35 million There’s
Matt Dery from 105.1 FM in Detroit jumped on the podcast to discuss lots of Cleveland sports topics. Johnny Manziel vs. Brian Hoyer The QB curse and Matt Stafford Does Detroit appreciate Matt Stafford? The Cavaliers getting LeBron James The Dolan “cheapness” bit The Cleveland Indians in 2014 Indians trade deadline Check out this episode!
I got a chance to talk to TD about all three Cleveland teams. That’s always a blast for me. Today we spent a good amount of time talking about the Tribe and the season they’ve put together. We also talked about LeBron coming home and what that means for a sports family like TD’s that
Rex Ryan challenged the Browns to an ALS ice bucket challenge today. He also seemed to be taking a typical, fun Rex Ryan swipe at his former underling Mike Pettine. About a minute in… “The last challenge is to the Browns. Let the Browns take a page out of our playbook, if you will. Play
Barkevious Mingo may not be the world’s next award-winning long-form scribe, but it won’t be for lack of note taking and tutelage. The second-year linebacker, along with 88 0ther Cleveland Browns teammates, were the recent subjects in a Wall Street Journal article that focused on the team’s use of pen and paper—as opposed to more
