From one bad defense to another: Former Browns DC Jim O’Neil will take Eric Mangini’s old spot with the San Francisco 49ers.
The Cleveland Browns ended their seven-game losing streak this past Sunday, beating the San Francisco 49ers, 24-10. The team played perhaps its best performance of the season, playing well on both sides of the ball versus the 49ers. On offense, the Browns scored 24 points in quarterback Johnny Manziel’s first start since his short-term benching. Manziel

One of the few disappointments from the Browns win is that Terrelle Pryor didn’t catch a pass. What might we see from him in the season’s final few weeks?
Johnny be great—especially under pressure.
The Cleveland Browns dominated the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday. Wait…what? How? Why? Running through the narratives.
Who was this team that I watched blow the doors off of the San Francisco 49ers? It couldn’t have been the 2-10 Browns team that was just recently blown out by 34 last week versus the Cincinnati Bengals. But it was the Cleveland Browns who beat the 49ers 24-10 on Sunday. What a wild and
If the Detroit Lions move on from Matthew Stafford, the Cleveland Browns should come running.
Someone tell me why Washington would interview a tight ends coach for their vacant defensive coordinator job? Well, when Eric Mangini is that tight ends coach it makes some sense. The former Mangenius from the New York Jets and one of the worst drafters in Cleveland Browns history will be headed to interview in Washington.
I love Bill Barnwell’s columns at Grantland. He’s never rigid in his points of view, but he’s always striving to get somewhere in his efforts and I appreciate that. He’s bit off a big chunk this time though. Barnwell has taken an unpredictable NFL theme and tried to predict it. It hits on the Browns because
Could the Browns someday work to eliminate Steelers fans from Browns games? Wouldn’t that be sweet? Could they only sell tickets to fans who live in a certain area? Those two questions will be answered soon, it would appear, thanks to a lawsuit filed by a 49ers fan against the Seattle Seahawks. I’m fascinated by
Regardless of the conclusion one chooses to draw from the recent revelations regarding the Cleveland Browns’ attempted acquisition of 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh, it’s a pretty big piece of news. The reverberations were obviously going to reach recently-hired Cleveland Browns head coach Mike Pettine, but rather than being bowled over by the waves, Pettine
Berea, Ohio: Where the fun never stops Late Friday, the never-ending Cleveland Browns coaching search – which really did end on February 6 when the Browns hired Mike Pettine – got an extension in the news cycle. Pro Football Talk got wind of an apparent trade between the Browns and 49ers for their coach Jim
Mike Florio from Pro Football Talk may just have the craziest story to drip out of the bucket of insanity that was the last two months of Cleveland Browns news: Berea almost pulled a trade with the San Francisco 49ers that would have given them the rights to head coach Jim Harbaugh.

Many Browns fans found at least a tiny bit of joy in their hearts last night when Phil Dawson hit a game-winning field goal to help the 49ers beat Green Bay in Lambeau field yesterday. Well, thanks to the modern world of social media, we can verify that Dawson still appreciates the fans in his
It was reported a couple weeks ago that Josh Gordon was on the trade block and he still could be right now. He’s had some great games coming off of suspension, but what we don’t know is if that makes him more or less likely to be traded. According to Ian Rapoport, it would take

It may not have much to do with the Cleveland Browns anymore, but I still love following the news about former Browns that we pinned hopes and dreams to at various times. Colt McCoy has apparently been named the backup to Colin Kaepernick in San Francisco as of yesterday, but that wasn’t the real news
Special teams standout Bubba Ventrone has reportedly been signed by the San Francisco 49ers. There he’ll re-join former Browns special teams coach under Eric Mangini, Brad Seely. It’s Cleveland Browns football, so talking about special teamers isn’t below us at all.1 Ventrone (and his flowing locks of hair) were a pleasure to watch on special teams
