PFT: Dan Gronkowski cut by Browns

We knew the Browns wouldn’t be able to keep all the tight ends they had in camp. It seems the first has fallen, despite the Browns no announcing their cuts until about midnight tonight. Pro Football Talk on Twitter has stated that Dan Gronkowski is gone. It isn’t a surprise due to the numbers of

Feeling good about Browns prospects at tight end

20110817-JC-1-IMG_0403-199x300

Earlier, I predicted that the Browns are probably overrating their running backs. It concerns me because much like they did with wide receivers the year before, the Browns seem like they could be betting on question marks. Well, when it comes to tight ends, I am really encouraged by the prospects of the Browns getting

The Best Browns Since 1999 – Tight Ends

Best Browns Featured Pic

Kellen Winslow Jr. ran away with this one.  Winslow is far and away the most talented player the Browns have had at tight end since 1999 and your voting agreed.  Winslow took 67% of the first place votes and Ben Watson was a distant second taking 16%.  Fan favorite Steve Heiden pulled 12% of that

Browns Make Things Interesting Before Falling to Ravens

Your Cleveland Browns were ultimately out-classed today.  Seneca Wallace threw an interception. The Browns bungled the clock at the end of the first half worse than anything anyone could possibly imagine.  Phil Taylor ended it with an inexcusable offsides penalty that Joe Flacco shouldn’t even get credit for.  The Browns got beat on some big

Overmatched and Underwhelming Browns Lose to Ravens

The Cleveland Browns were beaten handily by Ray Rice and the Ravens 24-10, but that doesn’t tell the story.  The Ravens appeared to be trying very hard to keep the Browns in the game over the course of the first three quarters.  The Browns had plenty of opportunities, but they shot themselves in the foot

Should the Browns Be Interested in Brandon Lloyd?

The Denver Broncos are reportedly shopping Brandon Lloyd and are looking for something in the neighborhood of a 3rd to a 5th round draft choice to part with him.  Of course it is / was only a matter of time before Browns fans got wind of this and started clamoring for him.  I get it.

Will We See More Evan Moore?

As expected (hoped?), the Cleveland Browns and head coach Pat Shurmur are using their extended time away from the playing field to do a bit of tinkering with rotations and play-calling.  While the obvious benefactor thus far is wide receiver Greg Little who was promoted to starting “X” receiver alongside Mohammed Massaquoi (replacing Brian Robiskie),

Fantasy Football Gone Too Far?

Deadspin covered it earlier today and now Browns players like Evan Moore, Scott Fujita and Mohamed Massaquoi are busy on Twitter today retweeting a message from Chicago Bears safety Chris Harris.  Harris took exception to an NFL.com website promotion for fantasy football that featured recently injured running back Jamaal Charles.

Browns vs. Colts – First Half Report

The Browns gave up a long 52 yard field goal that put the Colts up 9-7, but most Browns fans were feeling fortunate to be that close.  The Browns then responded with a drive and a TD to go up 14-9 with 15 seconds to go in the second quarter.  The drive was fueled by

Week 2: The Browns Will Win If…

After stalling out on the runway, the Browns’ 2011 season gets another shot to get airborne this Sunday in Indianapolis, where the Colts are in an unfamiliar place: Peyton-less. Who’d have ever thought the Browns would have the edge in the “Peyton” column of the stat-sheet when going in to play the Colts?? Well, if

Cleveland Browns Film Room: Week 1 Red Zone Offense

Each week this season, we’ll take a seat in our very own WFNY Browns film room and break down a little tape from the previous week.  Do enjoy. This week, it would have been easy to kick off and show you all ‘the huddle’ play, but really there isn’t much point to that. The end result would

Browns Really Lost on Four Drives of Futility

I prefer to take a constructive look at the Browns’ loss to the Bengals on Sunday.  This means I am not going to talk about the first quarter penalty-fest.  What’s the point?  There is no defense.  The coaches and players all know it is unacceptable and after that quarter the Browns committed four penalties the

Browns Beat Packers, Show Signs of Depth

The Browns aren’t definitively headed to the Super Bowl this season even after beating the defending Super Bowl Champions 27-17 in their opening pre-season game.  That being said, this weekend, they showed up and did their jobs on the field better than most probably thought they could.  We’ve been hearing about how the Browns, out

Browns Training Camp Notes 8/11: All About Speed, Skrine and Saturday

After taking the last three days in full pads, Browns head coach Pat Shurmur opted to let his players run Thursday’s practice in shells as the Orange and Brown gear up for their first preseason game against the Green Bay Packers. As the team will host the Super Bowl champions in just a little over

If Healthy, Browns’ Offense Should Be Improved

Despite having to continue to talk about question marks in the receiving corps, it is important to note that the Browns haven’t really stood pat with their offense as a whole. The Browns traded out of the Julio Jones slot in the draft and ended up drafting one of the biggest defensive linemen available in

It’s Official: Phil Dawson Returns

The Browns officially announced this morning that Phil Dawson has signed the one year franchise tender offered to him by Mike Holmgren & co.  The reliable kicker will enter his 13th straight season with the Browns – having debuted on the original roster when the team returned in 1999.  He’s a fan favorite in Cleveland

The Browns Sign D’Qwell Jackson, Seneca Wallace, Tender Eric Wright and Evan Moore

The Browns were busy yesterday, even as the labor situation remains unsolved. First, they signed linebacker D’Qwell Jackson to an incentive-laden deal reportedly worth up to $4.5 million.  Don’t get too caught up in that number though.  It won’t mean a whole heck of a lot if D’Qwell can’t get healthy and stay healthy.  In fact,

Which Browns Team Shows Up This Week?

The Cleveland Browns have two games left against the class of the AFC North.  I know we hate to say it because we despise the Ravens and the Steelers so much, but they are. There’s just no denying it.  The Browns are also coming off a tough stretch of games for them.  The Browns went

Mid-Week Browns Update

The Browns head into Buffalo this week, and it feels like a bit of a trap game for me as a fan.   Deep in my heart, I don’t believe that this Browns team in its current iteration is capable of succumbing to a trap game.  They seem to play just as hard in otherwise
