When Mike Holmgren agreed to become the President of the Cleveland Browns back in 2010, he called the endeavor his "last great adventure." Two years later and an earlier than anticipated exit on the horizon -- thanks to new Browns owner Jimmy Haslam -- Holmgren may have one more adventure in him after all.Holmgren, who was the head coach in Green Bay and Seattle for a combined 17 seasons (1992-2008), hasn't exactly excelled in his cushy front office role. On Wednesday, Holmgren admitted that he "misses" coaching and might even be interested in a return to the sidelines."I've learned a lot of things the last three years," Holmgren said to a group of reporters in Cleveland. "And one of the things I thought I knew, but now I know is I do miss the coaching part. I really do."Holmgren's time up in the luxury box, overlooking the field, apparently hasn't provided him with the same fire and desire as calling the shots on the sidelines...

I’ve admittedly struggled with my criticisms of Cleveland Browns coach Pat Shurmur. I am more than happy to critique individual decisions along the way, but frequently the desire of the fans is to reach conclusions as soon as humanly possible. I like to take my time reaching conclusions because, as they say, timing is everything. That’s why I said that I thought the Browns needed...
It’s that time of week again. Last week we had over 250 people weigh in and we’ve had about that pretty much every week. I think it only gets more and more interesting to see how Browns fans react to maybe the most inconsistent team we’ve seen since 1999. I know that’s saying a lot, but it seems to me the sense of disappointment over this team right now reflects an optimism...
Trent Richardson’s transition to the NFL hasn’t gone as well as expected.
Many believed the former Alabama running back would excel in the NFL, but now Richardson isn’t even playing like himself.
Blame it on a painful rib cartilage injury, Richardson was embarrassed watching tape of himself. ”It really didn’t look like me,” he said. – Yahoo Sports
For the better part of the 2000’s, the NBA had a major balance issue. The Western Conference soared far above their Eastern counterparts, regularly turning the Finals into a prolonged version of the victory formation rather than a climactic battle. Dynastic teams such as the Lakers and Spurs were the obvious standouts, but the West also featured other powerful squads such as the...
Cleveland Browns running back Trent Richardson has no plans to miss Sunday's game against San Diego. Coach Pat Shurmur said the rookie, who has damaged cartilage in his ribs, practiced Thursday and looked better than he did last week. "He did a lot of work and you just do as much as you can to get them as good and as ready as they can be for 1 o'clock Sunday,"...
Another day, another interesting report about the Cleveland Browns and new owner Jimmy Haslam. A source with the Browns indicated that Haslam recently visited The Ohio State University to take in a practice session with the football team.
Now this could mean absolutely nothing, or it could mean absolutely everything. While admittedly unlikely, some people I've talked to have...
We don’t post all press conferences, but this one signaling the end of the Mike Holmgren era seemed worth adding to the site. Or, you can skip it and read Scott’s artful take on it.
(Opening statement) – “I’d like to start off by thanking Randy Lerner, first of all, for giving me the opportunity to come to Cleveland. My year off when he came to visit me in Arizona, he...
While it’s been months in the making, the Cleveland Browns have officially been sold to Jimmy Haslam for $1.05 billion ($1,005,000,000). Unfortunately this means, he has to take the players and coaching staff as well. According to Forbes, the hapless Browns are the 30th most valuable franchise in professional sports (this includes international clubs), but The post The Value of...
According to team beat writer Scott Petrak, Browns coach Pat Shurmur said running back Trent Richardson (ribs) looked "way better" in Wednesday's practice than he did at the same time last week.Fantasy Spin:The Browns were contemplating shutting Richardson down for three weeks and having him return following the team's bye week. The running back has been more positive...

Browns starting linebacker Scott Fujita will be placed on
injured reserve with a neck injury, ending his stormy season - and
perhaps his football career.
Last week: 31 (+2) Record: 1-6 Despite their loss, the Browns move up. Last week, I mentioned I consdered putting the Browns ahead of the rest of the 1 win teams and some of the 2 win teams because they’ve been competitive in every game despite their record (worst in the league at 1-6). This [...]
James Dockery was one of the final cuts for the Browns this season as he was presumably beaten out by guys like Trevin Wade, Johnson Bademosi and Tashaun Gipson. It took a little while, but “Dock” has been picked up off of waivers by the Carolina Panthers to take Jon Beason’s roster spot, who was put on injured reserve.
Beason has only played in five games since receiving a...
