The Cleveland Browns are constantly looking for “the answer” at quarterback, but it seems more and more that they’re asking the wrong question. The question they keep asking is how do you come up with Peyton Manning, Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers—hell, even Ben Roethlisberger or Joe Flacco? The Browns seem to operate as if they’re
The differences between how NFL players and NFL fans look at a game, season, or even an NFL career are endless. Obviously NFL fans are the ultimate outsiders no matter how much they love the team they watch every week. This isn’t groundbreaking or even all that novel a concept, but Joe Thomas’ session with
Welcome to the Friday before Christmas my fellow WaitingForNextYear-ians. WFNY’ers. To my Christmas-celebrating folks, congrats, you made it. To my Jewish friends, know that I’m jealous and wish I was at the movies with you next Thursday. When I got to college and a couple of my new Jewish friends let me in on the
Hi. My name is TD and I’m in love with Colt McCoy.
From the former Browns mega-file, we have news from Washington where the post-RG3 plans aren’t going so well. At one time Kirk Cousins was a hot QB name for Cleveland Browns fans in search of an answer. Running Kyle Shanahan’s system, Cousins had rolled the Browns to death in a game, and conventional wisdom was
If this Cleveland Browns training camp continues the way it started, a true quarterback controversy will never develop. You get the sense that the national media has been gearing up for it all along because Johnny Manziel is popular. He is a high profile player who generates excitement whenever you talk about him. His jersey
Leading up to an NFL draft, there are a lot of hackneyed conversations that will drive a fan absolutely crazy. It seems that some fans want to rely on simplistic rules to simplify the NFL draft for themselves. It’s a coping mechanism to help deal with the fact that most fans have do not possess nearly
Colt McCoy wasn’t out of work long. The former Browns quarterback has never been able to find tons of success in the NFL, but the backup QB game isn’t so bad. Brandon Weeden, Jason Campbell, Derek Anderson, Colt McCoy? All of them have been able to find rosters at least for this year’s training camp.
Being a backup quarterback in the NFL isn’t such a bad gig. Despite lackluster performances, former Browns like Brandon Weeden and Derek Anderson are never going to be out of work, it seems. Jason Campbell had a pretty bad year for a starting quarterback in the NFL, but it was apparently good enough to get him
The very best Browns sports talk that money can buy, but you get it for free! I finally got Mike Burgermeister of JimKanicki.com back on the podcast to talk through the Browns’ miserable season. We talked about all the failings. Cleveland Browns podcast with Mike Burgermeister (jimkanicki.com) The Joe Banner press conferences How do the
Scott: So… Was that the last start for Brandon Weeden? Should it be his last start? TD: They cannot trot him out there at home again. It will be a the ugliest of ugly scenes if they do so.
The San Francisco 49ers might be interested in talking to recently released Seneca Wallace according to Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com (by way of ProFootballTalk.) Of course that seems ironic to Browns fans that saw the Colt McCoy / Seneca Wallace combination lead to controversy over the Browns’ starting QB spot in Cleveland over the last
Yesterday the Cleveland Browns reportedly delivered a Lou Groza jersey to the family of the Browns fan who put a joke about the team in his obituary. Yesterday, Will Burge reported that the Browns are changing many of the features of the Cleveland Browns game-day experience for the upcoming season including (wait for it) wiener
You know who hasn’t had their name drug through the mud all that much this off-season? How about Cleveland Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden? It’s kind of a different look for anyone who has the letters Q and B next to his name on the Cleveland Browns roster over the last decade. It’s been an even
A fictional conversation that could have taken place in Berea over the last couple of days… Michael Lombardi: “Hey. Have you heard of Brian Hoyer?” Ray Farmer: “You mean the journeyman Michigan State guy who went undrafted in 2009, with one career NFL start who was cut flat by the team, the Arizona Cardinals, with
We’ve all just had a lesson in how front offices turn over in an off-season. It feels like a relatively new lesson here in Cleveland. The Browns have decided not to renew some contracts of scouts that were in Berea under former General Manager Tom Heckert. The timing of waiting until after the draft is
Former Browns quarterback and current San Francisco 49ers backup QB Colt McCoy said that he would “always be grateful” to the Browns organization, but his tune is a little different lately. In a NFL.com article by Marc Sessler, it’s communiated that McCoy says things are quite different in San Francisco, who made it to the
Tom Reed makes his first appearance on the WFNY Podcast to talk to me about his journey to the Plain Dealer. Commuting from Columbus to Cleveland The underwhelming NFL draft The Colt McCoy trade Joe Banner and accountability Mike Lombardi’s hiring The Cleveland Cavaliers’ abysmal defense The silence from Chris Grant and Dan Gilbert Byron
Adam Schefter is reporting (by way of PFT for us) that former Browns QB Seneca Wallace is going to work out for the Oakland Raiders. It just goes to show that there are at least nine lives available for anyone who can stand under center in the NFL. It also goes to show that the
