Can the Browns afford to keep working with Josh Gordon?

Josh Gordon Cleveland Browns

It seems Josh Gordon won’t be content until he’s out of the NFL. Maybe “content” isn’t the right word as it appears that maybe Josh Gordon is perfectly content with his lot in life as a screw-up. But is he a screw-up or is he an addict and are those two terms mutually exclusive? This

Cleveland defensive backs headline PFF’s All-AFC North Team

Tashaun Gipson

A startling lack of play-makers would lend itself to the Cleveland Browns being left off of any AFC North lists, but the trenches and the defense graded out incredibly well for Pro Football Focus and their All-AFC North team. While Joe Thomas was an interesting omission on the offensive side of the ball, rookie guard

Are these really just the “same old Browns?” – WFNY Roundtable

Cleveland Browns Fans

So, Kyle Shanahan and Dowell Loggains are gone. The Browns appear all over Twitter and the Internet as a punchline once again. Let’s get down to it though. Is this really an unmitigated disaster? Is this the same old Browns for sure, or is this a petulant guy who was known as a petulant guy

They Gone: Kyle Shanahan and Dowell Logains officially out in Berea

Brian Hoyer Cleveland Browns

Well, that escalated quickly. It seems like just yesterday that we were discussing the potential for Cleveland Browns offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan and fellow 30-something quarterbacks coach Dowell Logains to be one-and-done. Turns out that there was plenty of fire to go along with that smoke. FOX Sports’ Alex Marvez was first with the story,

Cleveland Browns Mike Pettine

Update: Kyle Shanahan has been granted a release from the Browns. Is there dysfunction within the Cleveland Browns right now? Will Kyle Shanahan get consideration to become a head coach for another organization? Will Kyle Shanahan follow his father to the next gig if he gets hired on elsewhere? Is someone from the Browns’ personnel department

Surprise! Berea is still a mess (reportedly)

Cleveland Browns Mike Pettine

Imagine calling plays for an offense. The play clock is winding down. A crucial third down is quickly approaching. The defense is gaining momentum. And your cell phone is going off as front office members are texting you, mid-game, about the plays you’re choosing. Such is life in Berea as Cleveland Browns offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan

Ray Farmer addresses Johnny Manziel’s partying, future

Johnny Manziel Cleveland Browns

The Cleveland Browns are so up front and honest when talking about players right now, that there never seem to be huge shocking moments. In the past, I have no doubt that guys like Pat Shurmur and Mike Holmgren would have shrugged off every single question about Johnny Manziel and then when the season ended

Jimmy Haslam sends stern message to “irresponsible” players

10 - Jimmy Haslam

The Cleveland Browns had a season. Whether it’s “good” or “bad” will be up for a debate for quite some time as we parse all the ups and downs. What is not up for debate, at least according to Cleveland Browns owner Jimmy Haslam, is how the Browns will deal with young players who act

Blame Culture Commence! While We’re Waiting…

Cleveland Sports

Looks like we’ll have to wait at least another nine or so months before our next Victory Monday. We’ll have plenty of Browns-related items over the coming hours, days and weeks as we watch the rest of the AFC North play in to January. But While We’re Waiting… Who’s to blame!?

Browns suspend Josh Gordon for final game of season

JoshGordonHDR

Josh Gordon started the season suspended, so he might as well finish it that way, right? Mike Silver reported that Josh Gordon and Johnny Manziel missed the Browns’ walk-through, which might now seem to be inexcused, at least on Gordon’s part. Manziel has been deactivated for the rest of the season with his injury sustained

Kyle Shanahan far from giving up on Johnny Manziel

Cleveland Browns Mike Pettine

Regardless of how disappointing Johnny Manziel has been this season – and it was pretty disappointing – any talk of giving up on Manziel is wholly premature. I said as much this week on Les Levine’s show with Dennis Manoloff. I know Manziel looks horrible and he isn’t “fast” in the way Robert Griffin might

Karlos Dansby has some tough love for Justin Gilbert

Dansby Facebook

Nobody benefits more from the presence of Johnny Manziel than the Browns first first round pick Justin Gilbert. While everyone’s talking about the man with the last name “Football,” Gilbert has been unable to find the field ahead of undrafted K’Waun Williams and now Pierre Desir. To think there was a time where we wondered

The Cleveland Indians are under-represented on the podcast at times just because it’s not my main main focus. That’s what makes it so great when TD comes on to talk Tribe. Here’s all that we talked about. Indians off-season bringing in Brandon Moss Gavin Flioyd as Scott Kazmir Jose Ramirez and how Craig almost forgot about

Sports Illustrated’s Sportsman of the Year is an annual must-read. Sadly, 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 2014’s Cleveland Sportsman of the Year. Here’s one of the nominations for that honor by an WFNY writer.

The Browns should give Brian Hoyer the start versus Colts

Brian Hoyer Cleveland Browns

A divided fan base became all that much more divided Sunday as the Cleveland Browns lost miserably to the Buffalo Bills. This week, as the Browns face a must-win game against the Indianapolis Colts, the fans will smell blood regardless of who Mike Pettine chooses to start at quarterback. And to think this is going to

Ray Farmer spoke, but what did he say?

Ray Farmer Cleveland Browns NFL Trade Deadline

Cleveland Browns general manager Ray Farmer spoke with the press on Tuesday, marking what was the mid-point of the season. Interestingly, a lot of the chatter I’ve been hearing the last day or so is that the press conference was a misstep. A lot of really good local media members are reading between the lines on comments
