Week 11: The Browns Will Win If…

The Browns found a new way to lose a game this past week, botching a 22-yard field goal in crunch time to drop an ugly one to the Rams. Coming to town this week are the Jacksonville Jaguars, whom the Browns are playing for the third straight season. The Jags, much like the Browns, are

Week 1: The Browns Will Win If…

It’s finally here! The Browns are ready to kick off the regular season, and the Cincinnati Bengals come calling. Here we have Pat Shurmur’s first regular season game as a head coach; on the other side, it’s Andy Dalton’s first game as an NFL quarterback. Welcome to the league, Ginger! On paper, the Bengals look to be in for

The Browns Will Win If…

What a difference three weeks can make. Before the Saints game, I was dreading these three games (Saints, Patriots, and Jets), thinking they would all end horribly badly for the Browns. And now, here we sit on the Friday before the Jets game with a legitimate chance to go 3-0 through this tough, tough portion

The Browns Will Win If… – Calisthenics Edition

Every year when my church softball league re-starts, I go out and throw about 10 warm-up tosses. Then, when I have to make my first throw from deep in the outfield, my shoulder inevitably hurts like a mutha. Apparently, you can’t let your arm sit dormant for 10 months and expect to uncork frozen ropes

The Browns Will Win If…

Four weeks ago in this space, I was lamenting the impending beat-down about to be administered onto the Browns by the Chargers (and let’s not forget that at the start of the fourth quarter that day it was 27-7 Bolts). How long ago does that game feel right now? I know the competition hasn’t been

The Browns Will Win If…

Normally, this is where I’d try to write something funny about the impending embarrassment I feel in anticipation of a Browns/Steelers game. But, and I’m asking you to hear me out, I actually think the Browns could have a shot tonight, if they can avoid shooting themselves in the collective foot. No, I’m not drinking

The Browns Will Win If…

This is liable to get messy. The Chargers are going to straight-up murder our donkeys. The Browns’ offense reverted back to the soulless dead fish we’ve come to know and hate for the first 9 games of the season. The explosion against Detroit was not seen at all on Sunday, despite the Bengals being willing

[Inhales deeply] Ahhh! There’s nothing like the smell of imminent nationally televised embarrassment in the morning! The Ravens are one of those teams that you really can’t get a true read on. They started 3-0 and looked solid. They then lost three straight, including blowing a beautiful comeback against the then-unbeaten Vikings. They then handed

Let’s see. Hmm. So, maybe you’ve heard that the Browns have QB issues. And that their best linebacker is out for the season. And that apparently even when their defense holds on fourth and short it’s still technically a first down for their opponents. Gear! The Browns actually improved on offense between the Buffalo game

Well, the silver lining is that the Browns won’t go 0-16. That’s all I’ve got up here today.The Steelers suffered a big loss with DE Aaron Smith going down for the season with a rotator cuff injury. However, the Steeler defense tends to be a different animal with Captain Head and Shoulders back in the

This Sunday is the first day of the rest of our lives without Braylon Edwards. OK, that might also be a little melodramatic, but one can’t help but wonder how the Browns roster has changed, and if this will truly be a case of addition-by-subtraction. One game at a time. We just need to keep
