You didn’t read the title wrong, the Cleveland Browns enter the 2012-2013 season with a little bit of depth at wide receiver. Of course the 2011 season was filled with inconsistent play from the wide receivers. There was poor route running, there were drops, and there was reason to believe the Browns lacked talent at the WR spot. However, I had to take a step back after the 2011 season and look at the real problems.
Like the rest of the NFL, the lock out really took a toll on teams. Especially the young teams with young QB’s. This really hurt the Browns, especially since we were launching Shurmer’s West Coast Offense. That right there I believe was the biggest issue all year. It was really hard for second year QB Colt McCoy to build any kind of chemistry with the WR’s.
Another issue was the disaster we had at the running back position. Coming off a break out season with the Browns, Peyton Hillis really let the Madden Cover get to his head. Only a...

AROUND THE WEB
No undrafted free agent has gotten more buzz so far than Josh Cooper, who is a wide receiver, currently of the Cleveland Browns. This is because the Browns have been praising him and his ability to get open underneath endlessly this offseason. Cooper is expected to not only make the Browns, but to compete for a slot receiver job with Jordan Norwood, Travis Benjamin, and Josh Cribbs...
Mike Holmgren opened his press conference today saying that he is going to make a change to his philosophy this year. He vows to make himself more available to media and fans. He gave credit to Browns fans that he meets around town and certain unnamed members of the media for breaking through to him and convincing him he needs to talk more.
Holmgren did seem particularly concerned...
Browns backup quarterback Seneca Wallace had the gall to call things as they are when he spoke to the Cleveland media on Tuesday.It seemed like his comments even drew some grumbling from the fan base, who dont like a backups candor.Wallace basically said that he knows Brandon Weeden at some point will be the Browns starting quarterback. He admitted he does not see it working with...
BEREA - There is the occasional NFL player or coach who cuts through the noise and gets to the bottom line.
Tuesday, Browns backup quarterback Seneca Wallace filled that role by placing the teams competition at quarterback into perspective.
The game is a lot of hype, a lot of business involved with whos playing and whos not, Wallace said at the last offseason practice open to the...
With this being his 4th season with the Cleveland Browns, wideout Mohamed Massaquoi finds himself at a pivotal point in his career. Massaquoi was a 2nd round (50th overall) selection in the 2009 NFL Draft for the Browns. Both he and fellow receiver Brian Robiskie (also selected by Cleveland in the 2nd round in 2009) were touted as the future of the Cleveland Browns receiver corps...
The 2011 season for the Cleveland Browns was yet another losing season. But unlike other years there was reason for hope coming into this offseason. The one resounding positive that was the big bright spot through a twelve loss season was the performance by the Browns’ Defense.
Despite no offseason program last year new defensive coordinator Dick Jauron not only managed...
Rookie quarterback Brandon Weeden continues to take first-team reps with the Browns, adding to the growing sentiment that he'll overtake Colt McCoy as the team's starting quarterback entering the 2012 season. Weeden and McCoy rotated with the starters last week at minicamp. Weeden, the 22nd overall pick in the draft, has a stronger arm and played in an offense at Oklahoma...
With regard to the role of “third quarterback” for the Cleveland Browns, it appears that there is a slight misunderstanding between Browns head coach Pat Shurmur and veteran back-up quarterback Seneca Wallace. With last year’s starter Colt McCoy still in the fold, and one of this season’s first-round draft pick Brandon Weeden expected to start, Shurmur feels that all of his...
The Cleveland Browns have many decisions to make regarding their final roster heading into the 2012 regular season. One of those decisions, sure to get a great deal of attention will be whether to keep Colt McCoy or Seneca Wallace as backup quarterback to Brandon Weeden. Both McCoy and Wallace realize that one of them will be the backup, while the other if still on the roster will...
Although Brandon Weeden is the Browns' presumed starter, the rookie quarterback isn't assuming anything in his competition with Colt McCoy.
Coach Pat Shurmur has not yet chosen Weeden his starter, but the team is grooming the 28-year-older to be their franchise quarterback. Weeden said ''not yet'' when asked if anything has happened to make him think he won...
Team president Mike Holmgren didn't play his cards too close to the vest Thursday when he weighed in on the ongoing competition between quarterbacks Colt McCoy and Brandon Weeden. Weeden, the rookie challenger to the incumbent McCoy, has taken the majority of first-team snaps with the offense at minicamp and third-string quarterback Seneca Wallace has been a distant enough...
