Colt McCoy and the Browns were dominated again this week, as things seem to be getting worse. I guess we can expect another week of emotional primal screams from the fan base and the so-called experts on talk radio.
I’m not going to panic. This is a young team that’s also battling through a rash of injuries. How can we expect to win with two running backs who were not on a roster a month ago? I hear some people blaming Mike Holmgren, but going into the season they had Peyton Hillis, Montario Hardesty and a newly signed Brandon Jackson ready to go. Then Jackson got hurt, Hillis turned into a flake and Hardesty got hurt as well.
I’m not trying to find excuses. I’m just being realistic. If you’re one of those fans already calling for the coa...
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
Second-year quarterback has started 16 NFL games, the equivalent of one full season, with the Browns going 5-11 in them. Is it more his fault, or that of an offense lacking in talent around him?
What do we know of the Browns' young QB? Hardly anything. Nothing conclusively damning, but not much encouraging either.
After eight games into the season, it is painfully obvious that the Cleveland Browns won’t be making the playoffs or even challenging for a Wild Card spot. While the defense has done its best to keep the team in games, the offense is in shambles. Running backs Peyton Hillis and Montario Hardesty are injured and now Mohamed Massaquoi - the Browns’ supposed No. 1 wide receiver...
The 2011 NFL season for one Cleveland Browns franchise has been nothing shy of perpetual chicken-egg debates surrounded by a (once again) disappointed franchise and a local media scene left in bewilderment. Is Colt McCoy the answer? How can he be when he has no time to throw? He wouldn’t need time if he had playmakers – Peyton Manning makes his receivers better! He wouldn’t...
"How Colt managed to have 1 TD and a 79 QB rating today I will never know. Anyone who watches a Browns game and wants to run him out of town with what he is working with is a fool. Not saying he is going to be the next Joe Montana, but we will never know unless he is given a chance to play with more talent around him." - LUND
BROWN AND OUT
Veteran Scott Fujita is frustrated with his team's play of late and said aside from a few players, the whole team is terrible.
Mohamed Massaquoi leaves with another head injury as Colt McCoy absorbs a pounding but still guides Browns to meaningless TD.
Get your questions ready and join Terry Pluto today at noon as he talks Cleveland sports. Can we fairly judge Colt McCoy right now? Is the Browns' defense as good as their ranking indicates? We'll talk about those questions and more.
HOUSTON (AP) -- The Houston Texans are feeling good about themselves after another commanding win without star receiver Andre Johnson.
Arian Foster rushed for 124 yards, Ben Tate ran for 115 and both scored touchdowns in leading Houston to a 30-12 victory over the Cleveland Browns on Sunday.
"We felt like going into this game, that this is a game we should dominate,"...
Cleveland Browns head coach Pat Shurmur and players talked with the media Monday after their 30 - 12 loss to the Houston Texans. Among the items discussed were Peyton Hillis, pass protection and Colt McCoy and finally the frustrations of losing. Hosted by Plain Dealer's Cleveland Browns beat writer Mary Kay Cabot.
And now for a list of positives from this game…
Phil Dawson chipped in two 50+ yard field goals (50, 51) to bring his season total from that distance up to six.
In all seriousness, though, all of us here at WFNY pretty much hinted that we thought this was going to be one rough matchup. With that being said, I know I’m surprised at just how woeful and devoid of purpose...
