New receivers Bess and Nelson bring experience, reliability to the slot

The Browns have not had a productive offense since 2007. And if you’re like me, over the last five years you’ve probably watched the likes of New England, Green Bay, and New Orleans and wondered how it was possible that Brady, Rodgers, and Brees were playing the same sport that us Cleveland fans watched every Sunday. In 2011 Drew Brees threw for 46 touchdowns while the entire...

Cleveland Browns: 1st Round Studs and Duds Since 1999

1999 QB Tim Couch (Kentucky)Right off the bat, the Browns made a horrible pick in drafting Tim Couch.  Granted Couch was the top-rated QB entering the draft, but his play didn't translate well at the next level for the Browns. During his first few seasons in Cleveland, Couch threw up less than 60 percent and added more picks than touchdowns. His best season was in 2008, tossing...

4th Quarter: Josh Gordon

Growing up as a hometown fan of any Cleveland sports team is immensely difficult for anyone, let alone my generation. I have endured the likes of The Shot, The Drive, The Fumble, and most recently The Decision. There is reason and foundation for my favoritism of Michael Jordan exceeding the preference of my Cavaliers, and an even more prominent rationality for my infatuation...

What’s the opposite of transparency?

“My feeling is that we need to present a different picture of this organization. It’s been stale. It has not done well. I don’t think people view the Browns in a positive light. My perception from the outside was that the Browns just weren’t successful. They weren’t energetic or forward-thinking. I’m not afraid of transparency. Most of what we do here — there’s no...
