In a year where up is down and down is up, one thing has remained constant, the Browns suck. Of the only 2 remaining 0-3 teams left in the NFL, the Browns are the one that isn’t even the slightest bit surprising. They are currently in the lead in the Blow for Barkley sweepstakes and should remain on the pole throughout the season.
LT Joe Thomas: Allowed 1 quarterback hurry on 50 pass block snaps, 1 penalty, run blocked for 19 yards and a touchdown on 3 attempts
RT Mitchell Schwartz: Allowed 1 sack, 1 quarterback hits, and 2 quarterback hurries on 50 pass block snaps, 1 penalty, run blocked for 2 yards on 2 carries
WR Greg Little: 2 catches for 17 yards on 4 targets on 48 pass plays, 1 drop, 2.0 YAC per catch, 1 penalty
RE Juqua Parker: Did not record a pressure on 27 pass rush snaps, 1 solo tackle, 1 stop
BEST OF MAXIM
Cleveland Browns wide receiver Greg Little (second in drops last season) continued his catching problems last night against the Baltimore Ravens, dropping a total of five catches, including a great Brandon Weeden would-be-touchdown pass that he had right in his hands.
“My job is just to beat the guy and get through the middle of the field,” Little said. “[Weeden] moved...
Josh Cribbs has said that the Browns won’t embarrass their fans tonight on a national stage, but unfortunately the fans aren’t buying it according to our survey. When I took everyone’s final score predictions into account the predictions are that the Ravens will win 31-13 over your their beloved Browns. So, how, exactly, do Browns fans think it is all going to go down?
Browns fans don’t generally want to be negative. They’ve rarely been given opportunity to be positive so far this season, though. Brandon Weeden knows that the record isn’t good enough, but he and the rest of the Browns players seem intent on maintaining a good attitude just the same.
… There’s so much negative vibe outside this locker room. It’s everywhere. In this locker...
It is still amazing that the player was able to get up on his own accord and walk off of the field.

The Cleveland Browns certainly didn’t embarrass themselves (just like Josh Cribbs 1 said) in losing 23-16 to the Ravens, but this team seems to be the absolute opposite of opportunistic. You have to give the Browns credit for having a plan on defense. They got gashed at times, but they kept Ray Rice under control and got some pressure on Joe Flacco. Offensively, you have to give...
1) Nothing like a good controversy to take the focus off the local bad team. Midday Monday the Browns were struggling to explain another 0-3 start -- the fourth in the last five seasons -- and dropped passes and poor defense and all that stuff theyve been trying to explain for 13 years. But shortly after midnight Monday the focus became the scabs err replacement refs who botched...
Cleveland Browns linebacker Scott Fujita is scheduled to meet with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell on Friday about his suspension in the Saints' bounty case that was temporarily lifted earlier this month.
Fujita was suspended for three games for his role in the bounty program while he played for New Orleans. He missed a meeting last week with Goodell while recuperating from a...
The regular NFL officials returned to cheers, and the Baltimore Ravens and Cleveland Browns didn't give the crowd much to yell about during a scoreless first quarter Thursday night.
Browns punt returner Joshua Cribbs lost his helmet while taking a hard hit, and lay prone for several minutes before being helped from the field. He had a head injury and was declared out for the...
The NFL and the NFL Referees Association agreed to the terms of a new eight-year collective bargaining agreement Wednesday night. The officials will return to action beginning tonight for the Browns-Ravens game.
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell lifted the lockout prior to being ratified by the NFLRA members in order to have the officials work tonight matchup between the Cleveland...
