Cleveland Browns (0-4) at New York Giants (2-2) In my weekly Power Rankings, I had the Browns in last for the 3rd straight week, but I didn’t feel comfortable about. Yes, the Browns are one of two remaining 0-4 teams and compared to the other one, New Orleans, they’re much less likely to turn things around. They’re the only 0-4 team that isn’t really a surprise. Everyone predicted they’d be bad, as they had been for years, and that’s been the case. However, I really didn’t feel like they’ve been awful. They have lost a single game by more than 10 points and they’ve had a fairly tough schedule, playing Philadelphia, Cincinnati, Buffalo, and then Baltimore. Jacksonville has a win, but I don’t feel like they’ve looked good in any of their games, even their win, and their 2nd year quarterback appears to be much more of a bust than the Browns’ 1st year quarterback Brandon Weeden, who has improved as this season has gone on.

Phil Taylor eager to get back but “won’t push it”

One of the nicer stories in an otherwise disappointing year so far for the Browns has been the defensive line. Much-maligned John Hughes and surprising late-rounder Billy Winn have been surprisingly good filling in for Phil Taylor. While it is a nice story, there’s no doubt that it would be an even better one if they were coming in to spell Taylor rather than filling in for him...

Cleveland Browns Film Room: Scripting the Opening Offensive Series

One of the most telling parts of the gameplan will be revealed to open the game. Those are almost always going to be scripted plays to try and set the tone for the whole game. This week, the Browns were pretty successful to open the game, at least for the first few plays as they grabbed a quick first down. Let’s see exactly what they did and what they might have been telegraphing...

The Giants look to get straight against the worst team in the league. Week 5 preview.

I'm a huge Eli Manning fan and think he's a sure fire Hall of Fame QB right now. However, the Giants can be an up and down team. This game should be perfect for them to get things straight on both sides of the ball. Their defensive line will harass Weeden all day and should land sacks from everyone on the line. Eli should be able to throw all over the field and hopefully...

Poor Eli Manning: NFL Regular Season Week 4

“Poor Eli Manning” is a compilation of quotes by both the media and fans about New York Giants quarterback and Super Bowl XLII & XLVI MVP Eli Manning. Despite his success, negativity and doubt have followed Peyton’s younger brother since the moment he was traded from the San Diego Chargers to the New York Giants on draft day of 2004. Regardless of what he does or how well...

New Browns owner not planning immediate changes

Jimmy Haslam III won't spend his first days as owner of the Browns handing out pink slips. Haslam, whose $1 billion purchase of Cleveland's franchise is expected to be approved by NFL owners later this month, said Thursday through a team spokesman that he has no plans to make any personnel changes ''until after the year.'' At 0-4, the Browns are the only...

Tom Coughlin rules out Hakeem Nicks

New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin has ruled out wide receiver Hakeem Nicks for Sunday’s game against the Browns. Wide receiver Ramses Barden still hasn’t been cleared after suffering a concussion this past Sunday.

The Loveable Tiki Barber Autographed This ‘Eli Sucks’ Shirt

Tiki Barber has to be one of the biggest d-bags in the history of sports, right? The guy abruptly retired in 2006, the year before the Giants won the Super Bowl, and hasn’t gotten over it since. Going into the 2007 season he ripped Eli Manning and his leadership skills. How’d that work out for him?Now this photo surfaces, courtesy of LobShots.com. Yes, that is an “Eli Manning...
