Josh Gordon doesn’t need to be a savior for the Browns

Scott Sargen/WFNY

Nobody knows exactly what Josh Gordon is going to do for the Cleveland Browns when he finally takes to the field. As Brian Hoyer said during media availability, we as fans shouldn’t expect Gordon to be a “savior.” And while that is thoughtful, calculated talk by a veteran quarterback, it doesn’t do much to quell the

WFNY’s State of the Browns: Quarterbacks

The season is just 100 days away. Enthusiasm is growing with each 140-character update from OTAs. The Cleveland Browns have had a very busy offseason in terms of the roster, coaching staff, and front office. Making big splashes both in free agency and the draft, they’ve completely revamped the roster. Each week from today to the beginning

I’m not cheering the Greg Little release, but it’s no big deal

Little3

And so the Greg Little era in Cleveland has come to a close. It’s not a day worth celebrating, that’s for sure. It’s never a good day when your team gives up on a second-round draft pick who was still playing under his rookie contract. It’s never a good day when your team is cutting a player

Terrell Pryor to be cut or traded by Raiders

Terrelle Pryor Ohio State Sugar Bowl

Former Ohio State Buckeyes quarterback Terrell Pryor didn’t have an awful year last year, but he apparently isn’t going to be a part of the future in Oakland. It certainly sounds like if you’re a bettor that you should probably assume he’ll get cut. It seems unlikely that anyone would trade for Pryor when the

Colt McCoy signs with the Washington Redskins

coltsnake

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.

Josh Gordon thinks Browns will draft a QB at No. 4

JoshGordonHDR

Josh Gordon might not know a whole lot more about the Cleveland Browns’ draft plans than we do. That has to be stated first and foremost. Still, Gordon’s opinion on the matter is interesting just the same. On Thursday, the Pro Bowl wide receiver told ESPN that he believes the Browns will call a quarterback’s name with

Jason Campbell signs on with Bengals for one year

campbell

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

Browns expected to release Jason Campbell

campbelldown

Find me another profession where you can be considered elite one week1 and unemployed just a few weeks later. Such could be the case for Cleveland Browns quarterback Jason Campbell who, per ESPN Cleveland’s Tony Grossi, is expected to be released due to triggered escalators in his contract. Campbell, who was leapfrogged by Brian Hoyer

Sports Illustrated’s Sportsman of the Year is an annual must-read. Given that the national recognition rarely has anything to do with the teams or individuals whom we cover. In turn, WFNY will soon announce its choice for 2013′s Cleveland Sportsman of the Year. Here’s one of the nominations for that honor by a WFNY writer.

Cleveland Browns vs Pittsburgh Steelers Week 17 Open Thread

brownssteelers open

The Browns season mercifully ends today. A lot of key players are missing, including Joe Haden. The Steelers are 7-8 and still have an outside chance at the AFC’s second wild card with a win and help. The Browns are 1-9 in their last 10. This afternoon’s game should go over quite well! Join us

Will Browns be motivated enough to dash Steelers playoff hopes?

brownssteelers open

I have no doubt that on Sunday the Cleveland Browns players will be trying to win as they’re somewhere near a touchdown underdog on the road against the Pittsburgh Steelers. I don’t believe that players and coaches involved in an NFL schedule think about the NFL draft or anything other than doing their jobs and

Cleveland Browns Game 15: Winners and Losers

WinnersLosers_WFNY

Wow. Having watched that game, I can’t say with a straight face that there were any winners in Orange and Brown. Looks like an all-loser edition. LOSER: Jason Campbell. Drops aside, this was a miserable game from Campbell who as a veteran should have been able to beat this Jets team. 18-39 for 178 yards

Browns extend losing streak to six with 24-13 loss to Jets

Check out the Steelers fan trolling the Browns on the road

The Browns still have not won a game since their bye week. They are 4-11 after losing 24-13 to the Jets on Sunday. There’s really not much to say about the particulars of this one. It was just bad to watch all the way around. The Browns failed to score touchdowns with drops and a

Coordinators call out players for team’s shortcomings: Browns Notes

Norv Turner Press Conference

As the Browns are stuck on four wins, having lost three consecutive games in the fourth quarter, the team’s coordinators have decided to place a chunk of the onus on the 53 players who wear orange and brown on every Sunday afternoon.

Scott and I had another good chat this week running down all the Cleveland sports stories worth talking about.

Cleveland Browns close home schedule with 38-31 loss to Bears

The Browns scored two touchdowns on defense, but still were unable to hold off an uneven Bears team as they fall to 4-10 and close out their home schedule. There were some highlights in this game, but as with most games this season, not nearly enough. The Browns haven’t appeared to be a team that’s

Who caught your eye? Did someone stand out? Who blew it? That’s what were interested in this morning. Winners and losers. WINNER: Josh Gordon. Just because it’s obvious doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be brought up. Seven catches for 151 yards and a TD. It was Gordon’s seventh 100 yard receiving game of the year. He

Cleveland Browns lose 27-26 thanks to key pass interference call

Brady Edelman Pats Browns

You really can’t spend a lot of time talking about NFL football and talking about refereeing. It has a tendency to go both ways and good teams overcome all kinds of bad calls all the time. It’s a part of the game, period. Of course I open my recap that way because today is not

Animated: Josh Gordon celebrates after toasting Aqib Talib for 80 yards

Josh Gordon was having a quiet day. Operative word being “was.” After being harrassed by Aqib Talib all day long, Gordon finally exploded for 80 yards all on one play as he caught a pass in stride and shrugged off the agitating New England defensive back. And this was his celebration.   [Related: Cleveland Browns –
