Found January 22, 2013 on Cleveland Frowns:
PLAYERS: Art Modell
TEAMS: Cleveland Browns
When we discuss Art Modell’s unworthiness for induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame here, the conversation tends to focus mainly on Modell’s lack of excuse for what he did in stealing the Browns away to Baltimore as a disqualifying factor. But today, thanks to a post by @jimkanicki at the world’s hottest new website about Cleveland, Browns and things, it’s as clear as ever that the focus on “the move” to Baltimore obscures the fact that Modell doesn’t belong in the Hall even apart from what he did to Cleveland, Northeast Ohio, and Browns Nation in ’95. From Paul Brown to Jim Brown to Andre Rison, and all the way to the posthumous screw job Modell worked on the partner who helped him buy the Browns for $250,000 cash in the first place, Kanicki’s got it covered and you won’t want to miss it. #ArtOut As for us, we’ll be back this afternoonish with an extremely important announcement.

This, on Art Modell’s status as a finalist for the next round of NFL Hall of Fame voting to take place Super Bowl weekend, might be the best column that NFL Hall of Fame selector and legendary local Cleveland Browns beat writer Tony Grossi has ever written. Here’s the upshot: Many of Modell’s supporters have since said it’s time for Cleveland to “forgive and forget.”...

Listen Up You Weeden Lovers, The Browns Are Not Handing Him The Keys To The Offense,He’ll Have To Earn It.

Multiple sources are reporting that the Browns former first round draft pick Brandon Weeden won’t be the starting quarterback for the Cleveland Browns if he can’t earn the spot in the next training camp.

Browns Brandon Weeden Remembers The Senior Bowl, You Would Think He Would Have Tried To Forget.

How funny is it to visit the official site of the Cleveland Browns and see an article about Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden remembering the Senior Bowl?  You would have thought with the way Weeden played it would have been a game he would have tried to forget about. Weeden played in the 2012 game as a member of the South team. He stunk in the game. People said after Weeden’s...

Browns questions abound

Now that the Super Bowl is set and the Browns hires are pretty much all set, there’s nothing left but to wonder about a lot of things. No, not silly already decided things about keeping a certain owner out of the Hall of Fame. That’s been decided a long time ago and as far as I can tell nothing at all (at all) has changed despite death and patches. Other than the obvious though...

Rob Chudzinski won’t commit to Brandon Weeden as his starter

Cleveland Browns head coach Rob Chudzinski isn’t ready to name Brandon Weeden as his starter heading into next season.  He believes it’s a little premature to make that kind of decision. Chudzinski may not make Weeden his starter.  Don’t forget he didn’t draft him, the previous regime did.  So he doesn’t have any loyalty to him.  I’m not sure who else they would start...

Cleveland Frowns Super Bowl Party at Map Room sponsored by Jim Beam, and Cheddar Bay Biscuits

This year, we’re bringing some symmetry to the Frowns social calendar with a Super Bowl party at Gillespies’ Map Room on East 9th Street just north of St. Clair. Of course, it probably won’t be as exciting as our annual NFL draft party because there’s only one Super Bowl for Browns fans. But it should still be a lot of fun: A place for you to meet and/or congregate with other...

Chudzinski: Too soon to name the starting QB

BEREA, Ohio The new Cleveland Browns coach and offensive coordinator both had several chances Wednesday to say that Brandon Weeden would be their guy at quarterback next season. They didnt. That cant give him a lot of confidence heading into the spring, especially when coach Rob Chudzinski said it would be premature to say right now that Weeden is the teams starter. Chudzinski then...

Browns Not Committed To QB Brandon Weeden?

According to Browns head coach Rob Chudzinski, it would be “premature” to assume that they are committed to Brandon Weeden being their starting next season, per Mary Kay Cabot. “I think it’s premature to say that,” said Chudzinski. Earlier indications would suggest that the new regime is not very high Weeden in general. Michael Lombardi has been brought in as their VP...

Browns not ready to commit to Weeden yet

BEREA, Ohio (AP) -- New Browns coach Rob Chudzinski says it's "premature" to name Brandon Weeden his starting quarterback for next season.

Browns: Premature to name Weeden QB for 2013

Brandon Weeden is not getting a lot of support from his coaching staff or general manager. The 2012 first-round pick is not assured of starting for the team next season.

The more things stay the same

The following is a guest post by the excellent Dave Kolonich of Cleveland Reboot and the Orange and Brown Report. ————— For those of you not familiar with my site, Cleveland Reboot is something of a niche blog that goes unnoticed by many Browns fans. Although a goal of this creative endeavor is to engage an audience, I’ve learned over the years that with a larger readership...
