Watch Joe Thomas and Brian Hoyer dance

Cleveland Browns

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

Browns win a bad one against the Titans

Hoyer-Joe-Thomas-compressor

Sometimes you can be satisfied with a loss as a fan or commentator. Other times you can be miserable with a win. Maybe I’ll change my mind later as the week moves along, but right now I’m not happy even as the Browns came back and beat the Titans 29-28 after trailing 28-10 at the

Travis Benjamin

Using an arbitrary and made-up methodology of measuring, Bill Barnwell has concluded that the Cleveland Browns might be the fifth fastest team in the NFL. This is the kind of stuff that doesn’t matter at all… until it does. By that, I mean that measuring the Cleveland Browns in any other manner other than wins

Each week this season, we’ll take a seat in our very own WFNY Browns film room and break down a little tape from the previous week.  Do enjoy. Well, you knew that no subject I picked this week would look pretty on film after that game. The Browns were torched on Sunday by the Titans’

Micro-Analyzing the Armond Smith Pitch

Everyone knows I was high on Armond Smith coming into the season.  This has nothing to do with that.  I fully realize that Smith wouldn’t have made this roster if not for the Brandon Jackson turf toe injury.  He fumbled the ball away in the pre-season and showed flashes of explosive play, but he would

Browns Embarrassed by Titans Heading Into Bye Week

I debated whether or not to wait for the final score to post this recap.  The game was that over that early.  Don’t let a fourth quarter of Browns offense against the prevent defense fool you.  The Browns were schooled on Sunday.  They were schooled so badly that there was a Jake Locker sighting after

Peyton Hillis Embraces Social Media and Supplementing His Income

I am a little bit surprised that Peyton Hillis’ contract hasn’t been a topic of conversation thus far this pre-season.  Even though we constantly hear what a nice, humble and pleasant guy Peyton Hillis is – and I’ve now seen it with my own eyes at camp – I still can’t believe we haven’t talked
