PLAYERS: Alex Smith
TEAMS: Cleveland Browns
According to Matt Miller of Bleacher Report, the Cleveland Browns love former West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith in this year’s draft.  They didn’t expect him to be available when they go on the board with the sixth pick, but now that the Chiefs traded for Alex Smith, they might be able to snatch him up. I don’t think the new Browns regime believes they have their quarterback of the future on their current roster.  If they love Smith enough, I wouldn’t be surprised if they take him in the first round.     Need NFL Tickets? var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; script.src = 'http://widget.crowdignite.com/widgets/27484?_ci_wid=_CI_widget_'+_CI.counter; script.async = true; ref.parentNode.insertBefore(script, ref); })();

  • Please tell me this is a joke.
  • OK, who has the T-P? I just pooped myself reading the Brown's might draft QB Geno Smith. IF he's not another Andrew Luck, don't waste the pick on a QB!
  • Evidently no one on the new staff saw his bowl game. He was absolutely terrible. Lombardi, you still don't know sh#t.
  • It's not a joke. It's a valid logical suggestion. Many experts believe Smith has what it takes to be a top NFL quarterback.
    If Smith is available at #6 the Browns would be crazy to pass on him.
    The newer rookie cap ceiling makes it a must pick if he's available.

Brandon Weeden looks to bounce back from his 'average' rookie season

Clevaland Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden joined The Hooligans on WKNR in Cleveland to talk about what he needs to do for the upcoming 2013 season to get his teammates and the new coaching staff behind him.

Attack is the keyword for the Browns defense

Some day its the chicken, others the egg. So it goes with the Cleveland Browns' new defensive system, a chicken or egg question if ever there was one. Did the Browns adopt the new system because they hired coaches who believe in it, or did they choose the coaches because they believe in the Browns preferred system? CEO Joe Banner had a plain answer last week when he met the...

Brandon Weeden Says He’ll Be Browns Starting QB In 2013

Brandon Weeden has a new owner, general manager, head coach, and overall system.  That normally doesn’t bold well for a quarterback that wasn’t hand-picked by the incoming coach. Weeden may not be the favorite to start in his coaches eyes, but according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Weeden has “no doubt” that he’ll be the starting quarterback for the Browns this coming...

Come (back) to Colinwood

There was a really good piece by Joe Crea in the Plain Dealer last week about an influx of new businesses and other development in Cleveland’s Collinwood neighborhood (“where Frankie Yankovic first learned to polka”) and its center, the Waterloo Road District, home of one of the best concert venues (and brunch spots) in the U.S.A., the Beachland Ballroom. The article contains...

WFNY Podcast – 2013-02-26 Scott Raab talks Cleveland sports, Warren Zevon and more

I stuttered like a fool to open the podcast this week. Scott Raab is a pretty regular guy who sets you at ease, but I still managed to stutter right into the opening just the same like a nervous Nelly. Anyway, after letting him laugh at me, Scott and I spent a nice amount of time discussing the news of the day in longer form. Of course, to keep up with Scott Raab you can follow him...
