What to watch for: Buffalo Bills vs. Cleveland Browns

In what seems to be a yearly affair, the Buffalo Bills are taking on the Cleveland Browns this Sunday in Cleveland. There are a few things to watch for in this game before one can make a solid prediction on the game. Rookie running back Trent Richardson showed the league what he is capable of last week by earning his first 100-yard game. Richardson is elusive and powerful. The...

Cleveland Browns fans expected to be patient once again

Cleveland, OH. Heading into the 2012 NFL regular season, is there a team who has less hope this year than the Cleveland Browns?

In fact, based on the overall talent level in the NFC...

How To Go Broke, by John L. Smith and Vince Young

I’m no Darren Rovell — much to the delight of anyone who has ever met me — but I know a great sports business story when I see one. Or in this case, two. The financial woes of Arkansas football coach John L. Smith and free agent quarterback Vince Young came to light this week, and I’m not sure which tale is sadder. Or funnier, if you’re a sadist.

Fred Jackson still ahead of schedule with his rehab

During practice this past week, Buffalo Bills running back Fred Jackson was on the side doing some individual drills.  Head coach Chan Gailey admitted that he’s ahead of schedule. “Yeah he is,” said Chan Gailey. ”He must be a fast healer.” Gailey won’t say when he believes Jackson will be back, but Jackson claimed last week that he’ll be ready to go in four weeks...

Jim Brown says he was looking to motivate Trent Richardson with his comments

Back in April, Cleveland Browns Hall of Fame running back Jim Brown said that Trent Richardson was just an “ordinary” back and that the Browns should draft someone else.  Now it looks like he’s eating his words.
