Browns among potential front-office landings spots for Peyton Manning

Peyton Manning Front Office

Bernie Kosar’s name makes for some quality talk radio fodder, but it appears that another quarterback could be spending the post-playing chapters of his NFL career in Berea as a front office member of the Cleveland Browns. CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora reports that the Browns, along with the Tennessee Titans, are among the front-office

Nobody’s safe in the NFL and nothing is sacred

Cleveland Browns Joe Thomas

Part of the reason that the signing of Josh McCown was such big news in Cleveland is because it meant the end of Brian Hoyer. As a player, there’s nothing worth talking about with Brian. Even as I’ve supported him as a player, I only did so while acknowledging that in a given year, he could

Manziel jersey sales are tops in the NFL, trending down

Manziel draft

Johnny Manziel’s jersey is still very popular despite the fact that he’s not the Cleveland Browns’ starting quarterback just yet. Dick’s Sporting Goods keeps track of such things and releases stats, likely as a way to get people to think and talk about jerseys. In their report, you can see Manziel’s jerseys decline as a

T.J. Ward talks about Denver’s winning culture vs. Cleveland experience


Whether or not the Browns will miss T.J. Ward as they welcomed Donte Whitner as his replacement this off-season is up for debate, but I tend to think the Browns will be just fine. That says more about Whitner than it does Ward, but there’s little doubt that you’d have to assume T.J. Ward and

2012 NFL Draft

Leading up to an NFL draft, there are a lot of hackneyed conversations that will drive a fan absolutely crazy. It seems that some fans want to rely on simplistic rules to simplify the NFL draft for themselves. It’s a coping mechanism to help deal with the fact that most fans have do not possess nearly

  Maybe 2013 will go down in Browns history as a strange outlier. Maybe we’ll all laugh about it as the trial by fire (of a thousand suns?) that Jimmy Haslam needed in order to figure out how to run a football team and be the kind of team owner he always envisioned becoming. After

Twenty Six years after The Drive, I’m rooting for the Broncos to win the Super Bowl

the drive

January 11, 1987. Cleveland Municipal Stadium. Bernie Kosar throws a touchdown pass to Brian Brennan. The kick-off is muffed by Denver, pinning them on the two yard line. My phone rings. It is my father, who was watching the game from work. “We’re going to the Super Bowl!” he said. He didn’t just mean the

Brandon Weeden and his eyes: Cleveland Browns Roundtable


No, this isn’t a conversation about how dreamy Brandon Weeden’s eyes are.

I’m not making excuses for the Browns, but I honestly didn’t expect them to be competitive this past Sunday against the Broncos.1 This team was in trouble when T.J.

Browns vs. Broncos Reader’s Survey


The Browns weren’t going to be favored this week regardless of the outcome last week against the Redskins.

We’ll
