Former Browns quarterback Colt McCoy penned an essay about his time in the NFL, and the “education” he received in Cleveland.
Dan Labbe set off to find someone who could name all the Browns starting quarterbacks. Like many of those players, Dan failed.
What’s in a name, anyway?1 As an aspiring wordsmith, much of my existence is spent deciding when to emphasize that question and when to suppress it; when to answer it and when to ignore it. Words are the elements through which I express myself — my fingers nimbly tapping words across the keys of my board
Late last week, the Cleveland Browns won the Josh McCown sweepstakes. To call it underwhelming is a bit of an understatement. My initial reaction was to be a bit trollish on the topic. I admit it. In a lot of ways you can begin to understand why a team would sign a player like Josh McCown
Happy Friday everyone. Happy 2015 everyone. As I’m writing this it’s pretty tough sledding for Ohio State in the second quarter, so we’re just going to skip that one altogether for now… In a battle of Ravens and Steelers… Has it sunk in yet how crazy it feels to have three AFC North teams all
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
Nobody in Cleveland has forgotten the Peyton Hillis Madden cover vote just yet. In the end, it came down to Hillis and Mike Vick, and I don’t know if Vick is wiping his brow for having avoided the curse just yet either, as he took a pay cut this year to stay with the Chip
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
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
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
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
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
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.
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
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

Delhomme’s arm was
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
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
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
