Brandon Weeden visiting Dallas today

Weeden working out wearing his signature series watch

In my experience, Dallas Cowboys fans have some consternation with regard to Tony Romo. In Romo, they’ve got a guy with some clear ability and talent, but he never seems to put them over the top. Romo is nearing his mid-30’s now as an NFL player and makes a ton of money and it’s reasonable

All-Pro Josh Gordon: ‘You cannot replace Norv Turner’

Gordon

“You cannot replace Norv Turner. That’s a legendary Hall of Fame coach. If it’s the same offense, heck, we’d be lucky to have it. Anything else, West Coast, I’ve run it before with [Pat] Shurmur. Maybe more exotic, but I doubt it. We should be OK, I think.” “We’re a little slow right now, offensively,

Patriots’ Josh McDaniels reportedly withdraws from Browns consideration

is this the last time I get to use this graphic?

I’ve assumed since the Browns fired Rob Chudzinski that Josh McDaniels was the favorite to be the next coach of the Cleveland Browns. Not to say that McDaniels is necessarily my preference, but his connections to Michael Lombardi seemed all the more indicative that he should be the favorite until I heard otherwise. Well, thanks

If Rob Chudzinski is fired, it’s just another Browns embarrassment

Screen Shot 2013-12-29 at 3.33.49 PM

I could sit here and break down what happened in the Steelers game, but I have no interest in doing that. The only thing on my mind right now is what an embarrassment the Cleveland Browns organization continues to be with today’s “one-and-done” rumors involving Browns head coach Rob Chudzinski.

Norv: Trade rumors could be negatively impacting Josh Gordon’s play

I would hope not, but I’m realistic to know that it does [impact play]. He’s a young guy. He’s not very experienced. He wasn’t the go-to guy as a young player, so this is all a new thing for him. I think when you add those things to it, it can affect him. Obviously, we’re
