Denver_broncos_v_ed48 Cleveland Browns at Cincinnati Bengals NFL Week 2 Preview A.J. Green was considered by John Harbaugh as arguably the best wide receiver in the NFL, but Andy Dalton proved that he still has some growing pains to go through. Andrew Hawkins and Armon Binns are the next targets alongside tight end Jermaine Gresham, which is certainly a concern. The Brown are unfortunately without Joe Haden, which should open up the playbook to take more shots down the field. Benjarvus Green-Ellis is the bellcow for the Bengals offense, and Dalton’s ability to escape pressure and run on his own is always encouraged. Going up against the Ravens defense always looks a lot worse than it really is since they have wreaked more havoc than any other defensive team has in the last decade. Dalton will be eyeing on Green against a now somewhat depleted Browns secondary with Haden. It will now be up to Dimitri Patterson and Sheldon Brown to slow down the Bengals attack, but D’Qwell J...

Childress discusses Weeden's poor debut

BEREA, Ohio -- Pat Shurmur tried Monday. Brandon Weeden did his best on Wednesday. Thursday it was Brad Childress turn to explain how a guy the Browns felt was so ready he didnt need to play the final preseason game could finish with four interceptions and a 5.1 rating in the season opener.

Fujita back with Browns after suspension lifted

Browns linebacker Scott Fujita is practicing for the first time since his three-game suspension was overturned.

Biggest Meltdowns Of NFL Week 1

  Week 1 is in the books, and with it came the unpredictable, crazy, and unexpected turnover of the NFL which leads to wild speculation. THE REDSKINS ARE GOOD! MARK SANCHEZ FOR MVP! THE 49ERS ARE A DYNASTY…AFTER WEEK1! And so on and so forth. More importantly, however, the NFL gave us our weekly dose of delicious meltdowns. There are some surpirses (no Romo?) and some unsurprises...

Bengals place linebacker Thomas Howard on IR with ACL tear

We never wish injuries on anyone in the NFL, but it is a part of the game and as Browns fans know all too well, it changes the action each and every Sunday. That disclaimer in mind, Thomas Howard’s injury is a big blow to the Bengals defense ahead of the matchup this weekend with the Browns. The Bengals re-signed Roddrick Muckelroy, who was one of the team’s final cuts leading...

Get up and play or go home and shut up!

If you couldn’t tell I’m still a little grouchy about the loss.  I love all of my co-writers here but if I read one more time that ‘It’s only Week 1′ I’m gonna flip.  If you read my schedule prediction from last week you’ll know that I did pick the Bengals to lose but I didn’t expect them to be humiliated on National Television.  In my opinion, if this is going...
