Waiting For Next Year:
San Diego Chargers
New Orleans Saints
Kansas City Chiefs
First of all, be sure to check out the WFNY podcast previwing the game this morning. With kickoff just a few hours away, here are a few quick keys from yours truly if the Browns hope to get win number two of the season this afternoon at home.
Will the defensive tackles be able to stop Ryan Matthews and the ground attack?
It’s been a huge concern all season long without Phil Taylor. It gets even more hairy without Ahtyba Rubin, who has not been a key factor in the last two games and will miss today’s contest. The Browns will use their three rookies in Billy Winn, John Hughes, and Ishmaa’ily Kitchen along with Brian Sanford, the third-year player who was signed off the practice squad yesterday. They’ll hope to slow down Matthews, who rushed for nearly 1,100 yards last season but has struggled this season. Jackie Battle is their bruising goal-line back, and Ronnie Brown has been used to spell Matthews as well.
Who runs the ball for the Browns?
We all hope it’s Trent Richardson for the...

Who caught your eye? Did someone stand out? Who blew it? That’s what were interested in this morning. Winners and losers.
Good win for the team. It was a confidence builder and another shot for young players to get valuable experience. Not to mention, it didn’t seem like any of our players were injured, which is always a plus…
WINNER: Trent Richardson. It’s a good thing...
The Cleveland Browns are one of the least improved teams in the NFL in 2012. Teams that sucked in 2011 have already shown great improvement in 2012. Not the Cleveland Browns. You measure improvement by wins and losses, sorry Browns fans that is the way it is in the NFL. Almost winning a game doesn’t count. The Browns are one team that sucks worse in 2012 than they did in 2011....
With the departure of Holmgren as the Browns failed team president it would be nice to know what advice he has for head coach Pat Shurmur. The words that should be coming out of Holmgren’s mouth would be telling Shumur the charade is coming to an end. People that know your reputation have taken control of the team and I can no longer cover up your lack of head coaching experience...
The Browns are getting 3 points in today’s contest against the San Diego Chargers. The odd makers seem to think the Browns offense can compete against the Chargers defense. It is time for Brandon Weeden and the Cleveland Browns to come out smoking and show the NFL this team has what it takes to get a win. The Browns have had plenty of problems in the NFL this season. There have...
Trent Richardson has been dealing with a rib injury for the last few weeks, but that shouldn’t deter him from playing this week when the Cleveland Browns host the San Diego Chargers. Richardson was limited this week in practice but according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter early this morning, Richardson will go this afternoon.
Schefter took to Twitter this morning to report, “Despite...
“[O]bviously we cannot play as a team. We appear to not be able to handle adversity or finish games. Individual and team confidence appears to be going south … a team going in the wrong direction fast.” — Chargers GM A. J. Smith, a week before the Chargers lost to the Browns
“When will Norv Turner be fired? No more if. Can’t be.” — Kevin Acee, San Diego Union-Times...
BEREA - The nine punts on Sunday and the 2-6 record stand tall, but there is also this little reality about the Cleveland Browns:
If they win Sunday over the Baltimore Ravens, theyll enter the bye week having won three-of-four. And by any measure, thats not half bad.
Lets also not be shy about this truth: The Browns had a chance to follow their first win with a second win over a...
Catching a short pass from coach Pat Shurmur, new Browns owner Jimmy Haslam tucked away the game ball, a reward for his first win.
Haslam beamed and everyone in Cleveland's locker room, including legendary running back Jim Brown, basked in the glow of victory.
On a gray, stormy Sunday, this was a bright new beginning. For a change, this was a step forward for the Browns.
CLEVELAND (AP) -- Rookie Trent Richardson rushed for 122 yards and scored a touchdown, leading the Cleveland Browns to a soggy, wind-whipped 7-6 win over the San Diego Chargers on Sunday.
Richardson, pulled last week at Indianapolis when he was ineffective because of a rib injury, carried 24 times as the Browns (2-6) won their second straight game at home -- and first for new owner...
Several corporate sponsors stepped up to help save the San Diego Chargers the embarrassment of having Thursday night's NFL Network game against the Kansas City Chiefs blacked out locally.
The Chargers said the sponsors, including the local CBS affiliate, guaranteed the purchase of enough tickets to lift the local television blackout. Those tickets will be donated to local military...
The final weekend of the National Football League in October had plenty of memorable moments to cover here on NFL Upon Further Review. We had a Browns offensive lineman assist Trent Richardson on a...

The San Diego Chargers come to the North Coast having had a bye week to buffer an embarrassing Monday nighter against the Broncos in which they lost a 24-0 halftime lead. It was the second straight fourth-quarter collapse for the Chargers (3-3), who’ve been torn apart by the three good quarterbacks they’ve faced (Peyton Manning, Drew Brees, and Matt Ryan), with their three wins...
