Brian Hoyer’s two late, fourth-quarter interceptions nearly gave the game to the Atlanta Falcons as Matt Bryant connected on a 53-yard field goal to give Atlanta the lead with just under 50 seconds to play. But Hoyer rebounded in the final minute, completing four straight passes, and engineering a flawless hurry-up offense to set up Billy Cundiff’s
Today should be a good day at WFNY, folks. We’ve got some of the new kids and infrequent writers in charge with Craig on vacation and Scott on a work trip. Hope you can put up with us for the day. Assorted Cavs-Spurs thoughts: The Cavs, a currently mediocre team, lost by two points to
Of all the potential momentum-thwarting items in all of sport, right below injury has to be the three-and-out. If it occurs at the beginning of the game, there is so much pageantry and emotion stemming from the introductions and kickoff, that an immediate three-and-out is the buzzkill of all buzzkills. If your team kicks and the other
NFL pregame shows are the best, aren’t they? You have a handful of broadcast personalities surrounded by a bunch of former players, executives and coaches in oversized topcoats, discussing a game that’s about to take place though readily admitting that they have yet to watch a specific team play. Not long before former NFL quarterback
It’s hard to act like you’ve been there before when the the Pittsburgh Steelers have won 18 of the last 19 matchups. But, with this win over the Steelers, the Cleveland Browns are once again over .500. And with the Oakland Raiders, Jacksonville Jaguars, and Tampa Bay Buccaneers as the upcoming three opponents, the immediate
Scott Brown of ESPN reported from the Steelers locker room that even after the game Cameron Heyward was none-too-pleased with the “dirty play” of the Browns on Sunday. Defensive end Cameron Heyward didn’t hide his anger in the visiting locker room at FirstEnergy Field, and not just because the Steelers had been embarrassed by one
Kyle Shanahan is Love, Kyle Shanahan is Life. This is what I continue telling people who do not understand how a Brian Hoyer-led offense with Miles Austin and two sub-5-foot-10 receivers can be so successful. The NFL is frequently called a “passing league” by fans and analysts. And, they are not wrong. The pass-to-run ratio
For the first time since the days when “Pinball Wizard”, “Proud Mary”, and “Sugar Sugar” were pulsating through the radio waves, the Cleveland Browns have scored 21 or more points in four straight games to start the season. It’s taken forty-five years for the Browns to start a season as hot on offense as that 1969 squad. In that
Finally, some stability in Cleveland.
Cleveland Browns defensive tackle and amateur film maker Phil Taylor will miss what looks to be at least the next several weeks after undergoing surgery to repair an injured right knee. Cleveland.com’s Mary Kay Cabot reports that the procedure was a “minor scope.” #Browns Phil Taylor underwent a minor scope on his knee today, a source
The hometown kid is getting plenty of love in the national media these days.
Because who doesn’t enjoy watching 300-pound white guys crip walk?
The Cleveland Browns somehow managed to defeat the Titans 29-28. I was concerned even as the Browns found a way to win against Charlie Whitehurst. It’s understandable that in the post-game locker room the Browns didn’t waste too much time worrying. There will be enough time for the team to study up in the film
Connoisseur of the buffet? Fan of the game of football? Do I have the deal for you.
At least we’re not… Oakland? ESPN’s NFL Nation did a confidential survey of 82 players and Oakland was the team they’d least like to play for. That’s what the poll concluded after the prompted statement, “The only way I’d play for [team name] is if they doubled my salary.” The Browns came in third after
The fake Jim Kanicki who is also the real Mike Burgermeister came on the podcast to talk about the Browns today. We talked about the following… Brian Hoyer’s MNF game Johnny Manziel’s MNG game The offensive line vs. the defensive line The Cleveland Browns running attack in 2014 Jerome Harrison Browns unhealthy relationship with running
The logo on his shirt is that of a Cleveland Browns dog with a barbell in it’s bared teeth trying to chew through it. Underneath are the words Cleveland Browns Strength. This image stands in sharp contrast to the smiling man wearing it. Garrett Gilkey is upbeat, polite and doesn’t seem to have a mean
The offensive line is the backbone of the offense in the NFL. They are in charge of keeping the quarterback upright and making holes in the run game. If you look at the top offenses like the Philadelphia Eagles and Denver Broncos, the offensive line is a strength of the team. The Browns have two
It was as if I had hit the ejector button. Sitting in the garage of the man who would later be the best man in my wedding, I remember watching the corner of his television and seeing that orange, logoless Cleveland Browns helmet take the place of the silver and blue star which had inhabited
Quarterback is a pass-fail position. Sure, there are two or three on every team, but out of those 80-90 guys, there are 60 or 70 of them who are just around because every team needs one on the field; the others are insurance in case that one guy gets hurt. Half—and probably more—of the teams in the
