Jason Campbell to Cleveland makes some sense

The Browns signed Jason Campbell to a two-year deal yesterday to “add to the pile”1 at the quarterback position. Is this more like Jake Delhomme or Seneca Wallace? That’s what we Browns followers like to do, you see. We try to put everything in the context of other stuff we’ve seen before. Remember when we

The sooner we get away from Shurmur and the Big Show, the Better

Can it get any worse here in Cleveland? I was watching another vintage Pat Shurmur-led debacle in Dallas, and all I could do is sit back and laugh. Seriously, how can you even get yourself worked up over this stuff anymore? Every week the Browns hang around just long enough to keep you interested, then

Top Five Non-Essential Things Jimmy Haslam Should Do With the Browns

There is a whole Tumblr page dedicated to these Browns jerseys. It is funny, but also embarrassing.

There are some really important decisions to make about front-office personnel, coaching and stadium issues, but I have some less relevant things that Jimmy Haslam should probably tackle when he finally officially becomes owner of the Browns. Here they are in non slide show format… 5. Start an obsolete Browns jersey trade-in program I don’t

When They Miss the Playoffs, the Browns Really Miss the Playoffs

Brady-Quinn-Training-Camp_230

We all know that the Browns and their 4-12 record missed the playoffs, but it had me thinking.  Are there even any influential players left in the playoffs that are former Browns?  Obviously guys playing special teams for San Francisco are important like Blake Costanzo are important, but I’m excluding guys like that.  I mean

Delhomme Bodyslam is Memorable for Ndamukong Suh

Ndamukong Suh was on the Colin Cowherd show today as I was driving to lunch and he was recounting some of his biggest, most memorable hits.  First things first, Suh and Cowherd talked about Suh’s push / forearm / decimation of Jay Cutler when the Lions played the Bears. Then, when talking about his more

The Lone (Public) Voice of Mangini Dissension: Seneca Wallace

Throughout this up and down (mostly down) season, Browns players never uttered a negative word about their Head Coach Eric Mangini. In fact, most of them went out of their way to praise him and how he had changed from the prior season. Team leaders like Josh Cribbs and Sheldon Brown have backed Mangini all

Browns Lose Virtually to Ravens 80-7

The Browns lost this weekend to the Ravens 20-10 and it didn’t even seem that close, really.  I just found out how much worse it could have been.  How does 80 to 7 sound?  Ouch! What would we do without technology?  Someone played a 2010 version of Super Tecmo Bowl with the Browns and Ravens.

Browns Limping to Finish With 20-10 Loss to Ravens

Maybe someday the Browns and Ravens will have a real rivalry. Today I was given a bit of hope for the future watching Joe Haden spar with Anquan Boldin after a particularly physical first five yards. This kind of animosity is supposed to come with divisional games for the players so that they can feel

Colt McCoy Sits Alone Atop Depth Chart

Well, if there was ever a question in Browns minds, there isn’t anymore.  As of yesterday, Colt McCoy has been named the starter for the Browns in the first opportunity since all quarterbacks regained their health. Eric Mangini (much to the chagrin of many of you) chose Jake Delhomme consistently over Seneca Wallace in the

Sorry To Say It: Mangini’s On the Ropes

There are many in this town that aren’t, but I am. I am an Eric Mangini guy. He is a tireless worker who has looked in the mirror and made positive changes after earning a stay of execution last offseason from new Browns czar Mike Holmgren. He is a young quality NFL Head Coach who

The Browns Will Win If…

Please, please someone make sure Derek Anderson does not show up for this game! The Browns are riding a modest two-game winning streak, and have already matched last year’s win total with four games remaining. Over their last 16 games, Cleveland is 9-7. Buffalo, on the other hand, continues to scuffle. Let’s hope both teams

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

Browns Struggle Early, Win Ugly

I’m very grateful for the win. Let’s be very clear about that. We will take them however we can get them. But this was not a very pretty win. The Browns struggled to get anything going on offense, especially in the first half. If it had not been for a few excellent plays by the

Browns Outlast Dolphins in Field Position Snooze-fest

Do you know how bad the Browns’ offense was today?  The Dolphins turned the ball over three times and the Browns still needed to kick a short field goal to win the game 13-10 as time expired.  If Mike Adams didn’t return his interception all the way to the Miami two yard-line, there is no

Week 13 Open Thread: Browns at Miami

Trying to continue to improve throughout the long NFL season, the Cleveland Browns (4-7) travel to face the Miami Dolphins (6-5) today at 1 p.m. Oddly enough, the Dolphins have been much worse at home (1-4) than on the road this season, and we will see if that calms another start for Cleveland veteran Jake
