Since 1975, the Pittsburgh Steelers’ faithful have gained national notoriety by flailing their “terrible towels” in the air at Steelers home games. Clearly not wanting to be outdone, the Cleveland Browns will also be rolling out their own version of this little gimmick. When the Steelers head to the rock n’ rock capital of the world this Sunday, the raucous Cleveland Dawg Pound will try to instill fear into the hearts of their opponents by standing as one and waving their...white flags?I couldn’t even make this up for fear it would sound too ridiculous to be believable. Yet, in a promotion with The NFL Ticket Exchange, every fan in the stadium will in fact be handed an inflatable white Cleveland Browns flag. Am I missing something here? I realize the Browns are 2-8 right now and their playoff chances this season are about as good as…well, the Browns’ playoff chances most years, but come on, really?I feel as though this should go without saying, but how can the Cleveland Browns’ mark...

Brandon Weeden was not happy with the Browns' playcalling during their loss to the Cowboys last weekend and called it unfair.
Some positive news from today’s Browns practice: cornerback Buster Skrine and wide receiver Josh Cooper each saw increased reps as they battle their respective injuries.
Skrine (concussion) was a limited participant Thursday after not practicing on Wednesday. Cooper (knee) was a full participant after being limited the day before.
In other notable injury news, Joe Haden (olbique...
When Buster Skrine went down with a concussion this past weekend while filling in for Joe Haden, the Browns had to turn to the bench once again. Johnson Bademosi (every color commentator’s worst nightmare) was the man up and he did pretty well. Bademosi made the team as an undrafted player from Stanford this season because he could play special teams. Now, he’s been named the...
Via Terry Pluto’s great Facebook page, we received word of a neat Pro Football Focus study from Wednesday that analyzed dropped passes by NFL quarterbacks through 11 weeks of the season.
Surprise, surprise who ranks in the top two? Just one behind Detroit’s Matthew Stafford, Browns rookie Brandon Weeden has had 32 of his passes dropped this year, according to the study. These...
When Cleveland Browns owner Jimmy Haslam, a self-confessed Steelers fan, bought the team, he said one of his first priorities was to revive the Cleveland-Pittsburgh rivalry. Yes, there used to be a rivalry. Long ago. The Steelers have beaten Cleveland 16 of the past 17 games, but with injuries mounted in Steel City, especially that of QB Ben Roethlisberger, confidence is flowing...
Joe Haden is practicing for the Browns, who hope the cornerback will be able to play against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
The only Browns not participating Friday are defensive backs Dmitri Patterson and Ray Ventrone. Patterson has missed five games with an ankle injury and Ventrone has a calf problem.
Having Haden back would be quite welcome for Cleveland, 0-5 this year when the cornerback...
It’s a holiday so this is a bit late, but it’s time to get your predictions on record. This is going to be interesting by the end of the season to see just how the fanbase ends up dealing with reality or realizing the reality of the Browns’ situation. With that in mind, please give me what you think will happen this weekend against the hated Steelers.
The Browns are bad and the last two weeks we've found out how bad the Cowboys are too. Browns fans shouldn't get too excited about the game last week in Dallas, the Cowboys are not a good football team.
After going a red hot 13-1 in week 11, I went 2-1 on Thanksgiving day. For the season that makes it 106-57. I'm still in striking distance of .750 for the season...
The Cleveland Browns take on their Biggest Rival this Sunday, Browns rookies Brandon Weeden and Trent Richardson will get their first taste of what it is all about to take on the Pittsburgh Steelers. The rookies have no idea what it is like to play a game at home against the Steelers, for Browns fans there is nothing like it. We will have a pregame preview of what it is all about...
The final injury report for the week is in for the Cleveland Browns as they prepare to host the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday in Cleveland.
Ruled out on Friday for the Browns were cornerback Dimitri Patterson (ankle) and safety Raymond Ventrone (calf) after both failed to practice all week.
Several Browns players were listed as probable on the Friday injury report after practicing...
It appears that someone finally notified the Cleveland Browns what “waving the white flag” signifies.
The Browns organization cancelled a giveaway that was supposed to take place on Sunday sponsored by Ticketmaster that would hand out white flags to every fan entering Cleveland Browns Stadium. The Browns announced the promotion on Wednesday via their Facebook page, and it was...
Upon taking over as Browns owner last summer, Jimmy Haslam said one of his first priorities was to revive the Cleveland-Pittsburgh rivalry.
It's been dead for years.
Once the NFL's equivalent to the Hatfields vs. McCoys in helmets and shoulder pads, the two-times-per-season clash between the Steelers and Browns has lost its luster. Pittsburgh has dominated the matchup between...
The Steelers have won nine of 10 games against the Cleveland Browns in the Mike Tomlin era, but these Browns have shown notable improvement of late.
