Here’s a look at Brandon Weeden’s stats as Browns quarterback through 13 games in 2012 next to Colt McCoy’s in the same job through 13 games in 2011 (click images to enlarge).
Note that Colt had just one fewer completion in the exact same number of attempts (!!!), for a total of 304 fewer yards than Weeden, but one more touchdown and four fewer interceptions, with a slightly higher passer rating, and more importantly, nearly double the Total QBR.
Colt did have eight emergency starts (six against playoff teams) as a third-string third-round rookie in 2010, but he’ll be the first one to tell you that his coaches hardly even spoke to him that season, so call those a wash even though Colt’s stats in those eight were still comparable if not all around better than Weeden’s in his first eight. And while it might be argued that Weeden has faced a slightly better set of opponents so far in 2012 than Colt did through 13 in 2011, he’s also enjoyed the benefits of being 29-years-old instead ...

BEREA A big reason the Browns won their third game win in a row was due to the contributions of rookies. Pat Shurmur was asked if it was the confidence theyve gained or the opportunity to show their skill set.
Its probably a combination of both, Shurmur said. When they have the confidence and opportunity and when those two meet they have the chance (to make plays).
There was probably...
One thing you have to notice this season is how much better the Browns offensive line is performing. As the headline of this article states, if Brandon Weeden would have played for the Cleveland Browns in the 2011 season with the line Cleveland had, it is doubtful he would have been able to complete the season. Some of the reasons as to why, include Weeden holding onto the...
The people in Cleveland are very excited today about their Cleveland Browns making steps in the right direction. Who can blame them? It has been so long since the Browns have won three games in a row you would think they won the super bowl. Now people are saying what a great job rookie first round Trent Richardson is doing as the Browns number one over-all pick in the NFL draft....
That's three in a row for the Cleveland Browns, as they beat the Kansas City Chiefs 30-7, highlighted by rookie Travis Benjamin's 93-yard punt-return for a TD.
The win makes it one more win than last season's total record. It also marks their longest winning streak since 2009.
Cleveland QB Brandon Weeden went 17/30, 217 YDS, but without a TD pass, instead handing...

5-8. Nothing exciting about that record in the NFL. 5-8 usually means a season that’s been defined by “what ifs”, probably some calls for the backup quarterback to rally the troops, and maybe even some calls for the head coach’s, well, head. If someone told you that the Cleveland Browns were 5-8, you’d [...]
BEREA Pat Shurmur downplayed the fact that Robert Griffin III might not play this week and said the Browns will prepare the same way regardless of who the quarterback is.
There has been uncertainty whether Griffin III will play or not this week after suffering a grade one strained lateral cruciate ligament (LCL).
Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon said on ESPN that Kirk Cousins...
BEREA, Ohio (AP) -- The Browns are still mathematically alive in the AFC playoff hunt. It's a long shot, but they haven't been eliminated with three games remaining.
And with every win, Pat Shurmur's odds of returning as Cleveland's coach improve.
With his team riding a three-game winning streak -- the Browns' longest since 2009 -- Shurmur feels good about the...
It’s like a WFNY episode of “The Real World.” “What happens when people stop being polite and start getting real? A guy who grew up with Christmas and a guy who grew up Hanukkah discuss their holidays to gain a better understanding of each other and also unite in the universal creepiness of The Elf on the Shelf.” Anyway, that was only the first couple minutes. Then we...
Robert Griffin III’s father told USA Today Tuesday that the quarterback “definitely” plans to start at Cleveland in Week 15. “He’s doing great,” Robert Griffin II said. “He definitely said he plans to start. I haven’t seen him (the last two days). But he told me (today) everything has gone well. … Monday he said he felt really good. Today he felt better. Every day...
There was lots of buzz over the weekend about Nick Saban possibly returning to the NFL with the Cleveland Browns.
In the Globe‘s report that focuses mainly on a potential Lombardi return to football management, and citing two unnamed NFL sources, Greg Bedard writes that “Saban has let it be known that if he returns to the NFL… it would likely be with Lombardi playing Pioli...
