Cleveland Browns head Coach Pat Shurmur was angered over wide receiver Mohamed Massaquoi’s use of Twitter to speculate about his injury. “I've encouraged them not to and prefer that they don't, but you can't harness social media. I've learned that. I'm not going to sit here and pick a fight with Twitter. That's part of society today." He also got pretty testy with a reporter when asked about what exactly led to Massaquoi’s concussion. “I told you what happened, and that's what happened. He has a concussion, and we're treating it as so. If I tell you something about what happens in a game, that's how it happened."   Massaquoi is still struggling with concussion symptoms after being hit in 2010 by Pittsburgh Steelers’ LB James Harrison, and hasn’t been the same since. This time around, the injury occurred on his first catch from rookie quarterback Brandon Weeden.

Is Joe Haden Invincible in Cleveland?

We looked past the diamond encrusted pendants that swung from his neck like a pendulum. We looked past the sunglasses indoors phenomenon that was so eloquently embraced. We did so because what happened on the field of play; a highly talented player isn’t exactly the norm when it comes to post-1999 Cleveland Browns football. Having a player who can make a game-changing play at nearly...

Weeden anxious for another crack at the field

BEREA, Ohio Brandon Weeden is anxious to get back on the field after a less than stellar opening performance against the Lions. He was 3-of-9 for 62 yards and turned the ball over twice. His rating was a paltry 19. Its been a quick turnaround, but its been good, Weeden said. Im excited to get back out there and correct the mistakes from last week and just get back out and (play)...

Weeden: My Mistakes are Fixable

The mistakes I made were so small that they’re easy fixes. I work on them every day after practice now. The one, the fumble, when I was trying to dump it down to Jordan [Cameron], regardless of if it was or fumble or if it wasn’t a fumble, I’ve got to get that ball out quicker just knowing where we were on the field, knowing how good Phil [Dawson] is. That’s three points...

Shurmurball is Back in Browns Preseason Opener

Nine passing attempts isn’t a lot. It only seems that way when one is picked off, another bounces off the pads of an opposing cornerback who’s streaking for your end zone, and a tenth is ruled a fumble. Eight penalties in the first half, and allowing your opponent 6.4 yards per carry in the same half, though? That’s just Shurmurball. DRINK! Like Brandon Weeden in 2012, Joe...
