Waiting For Next Year:
Who caught your eye? Did someone stand out? Who blew it? That’s what were interested in this morning. Winners and losers.
That was a pretty ugly display of football Sunday. At least from the offense. Let’s get it started.
WINNER: Jordan Cameron. The Browns tight end caught five passes for 95 yards. Cameron is looking like a legit NFL tight end, which we just didn’t know entering the season. Unfortunately, he was about the only positive thing on the offensive side of the ball.
LOSER: Greg Little. Little was targeted 12 times and had four catches. Officially, Little has only been guilty of two dropped passes. Those who have watched both games this year know better. Can anyone name a WR that got drastically better at hanging on to the football after his third year? I’m losing hope for Little.
LOSER: Brandon Weeden. I am certainly not trying to insinuate that the struggles of the offense are all on Weeden. I think we all could see that wasn’t the case yesterday. I’m saying that Weeden is losing his chance to prove anything in this league. He could have been better. The line could have been better. The receivers could have been better. Bottom line is that the Browns lost and the offense stunk, and he’s the quarterback.
LOSER: Coaching staff. Man, I really hoped I would be done putting the coaches in the Loser column after last year. That was ugly. What in the world is the problem with getting plays into the huddle? Three delay of game penalties? On big third downs to boot? Not utilizing Trent Richardson on key third downs? Oof.
WINNER: Barkevious Mingo. He didn’t have a spectacular game neccesarily, but you have to love him getting to the quarterback on his first snap on defense. Nice. Keep working.
WINNER: Billy Cundiff. Hey, he was the only Brown to score. He hit a 51 yard field goal in a pretty hostile environment. Credit where it is due.
Alright, it’s your turn. I saved plenty for you.

The only thing “Little” about Browns WR Greg Little is his common sense while behind the wheel. The 6′ 2″ 220 lb receiver was cited this morning for a stop sign violation and driving under a suspended license. His myriad of driving violations is growing by the day at seems.
Little paid $472 in fines and court costs last week after he was stopped with an expired license plate...
Less than 12 hours after the Browns lost to the Ravens to fall to 0-2, wide receiver Greg Little earned three traffic violations in Cleveland.
The Cleveland Browns entered the 2013 season hoping, that in his second year, and with a Norv Turner offense more compatible with his skills, that Brandon Weeden could rise to the occasion and become the quarterback that this franchise has desperately needed. At least that was the perception the team wanted the fans to have. We learned later that the current regime never had...
Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports that Cleveland Browns quarterback, Brandon Weeden, suffered an injury to his thumb on his throwing hand during the fourth quarter of Sunday’s loss to the Baltimore Ravens.Weeden suffered the injury after he whacked his throwing hand on the helmet of guard, John Greco. Replaced by back-up Jason Campbell, Weeden’s x-rays came...
BEREA, Ohio (AP) -- Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden's sprained right thumb could keep him out of this week's game at Minnesota.
Weeden was injured in the fourth quarter of Sunday's game at Baltimore when he hit his hand on a helmet after throwing a pass. Coach Rob Chudzinski said the team will wait to see how the injury responds in the next few days before deciding...
The Cleveland Browns coachin staff is reportedly considering third-string quarterback Brian Hoyer in the event that Brandon Weeden cannot play in Week 3 due to a sprained thumb on his throwing hand.
Going to Hoyer would be huge leap of faith (one career start for 5th-year pro), but 0-2 #Browns are on the ledge, thinking about it.

After a 14-6 loss in Baltimore the Cleveland Browns are now 0-2 on the season.
Late in the loss quarterback Brandon Weeden hit his throwing hand on the helmet of an offensive lineman. Backup Jason Campbell came in to replace Weeden but was jut 1-for4 for six yards.
“It was tough to put pressure on the ball,” Weeden said, via Akron Beacon Journal. “It hurts. Doesn’t feel too...

Cleveland Browns vs. Baltimore Ravens (Week 2)
September 15, 2013
Trying not to let the disillusionment that Brandon Weeden and the Browns started in me last week carry over. Hoping the offense can find its way a little bit to help out the defense, who should pressure Flacco quite a bit.
Over the last four seasons, no 0-2 team in the NFL has eventually made the playoffs. This afternoon, the Browns head off to Baltimore to see which AFC North team will fall to the basement of the division in the early part of the 2013 season.
The Ravens will be passing out their Super Bowl rings before the start of the game. The Browns will hope that the offense shows some signs of...
The Cleveland Browns might be making a change at quarterback. Jason Campbell could be making a start next Sunday at the Minnesota Vikings. Current starter Brandon Weeden sustained a sprained thumb against the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday. This might be the move the Browns need to get their offense jump started. Weeden’s performance on the field has been less than spectacular.
Arthur Jones wanted to celebrate after sacking Cleveland Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden on Sunday.
Jones dropped Weeden for a 9-yard loss in the third quarter and it was particularly satisfying for the Ravens defensive lineman considering his medical ordeal in the weeks leading up to the game.
Jones had been sidelined with an irregular heartbeat a non-football illness that cleared...
