Waiting For Next Year:
Guys like Greg Little who drop the ball yet do a dance while we’re 0-3? I would sit his ass down and tell him, ‘listen my friend, there’s no I in team, but there’s two I’s in “idiot.” Get the job done and stop the B.S.’
– Fomer Cleveland Browns head coach Sam Rutigliano, in an interview on 92.3 The Fan, when asked what he would do with wide receiver Greg Little. Little, on Sunday, dropped multiple passes but proceeded to celebrate when converting a first down with the Browns down by 14 points. He was involved with celebratory-based issues with fans just one week earlier.

BEST OF MAXIM
Rick is still the man with the film room pieces, and I believe he might still have one this week. But I watched the beginning of the Browns game again yesterday and wanted to share a couple things about the Bills’ defensive gameplan.
The Bills, not surprisingly, committed resources to stopping Trent Richardson from hurting them. It is a rational plan to stop the biggest threat...
Cleveland, OH. Heading into the 2012 NFL regular season, is there a team who has less hope this year than the Cleveland Browns? In a league where huge turnarounds can happen within just a season or two, it seems as if nobody who knows the game well at all is picking the Browns to be anywhere near the playoffs come January. In fact, based on the overall talent level in the NFC...
The Cleveland Browns just weren’t good enough today. The defense wasn’t great, but they consistently gave the Browns’ offense a chance to win. The Browns’ offense showed some flashes but either shot themselves in the foot or had some calls work against them. There is no giant goat for this one. This was just a team loss all the way around, from the get go. It was made even...
Brandon Weeden after the Browns’ 24-14 loss to the Buffalo Bills-
“I think, and I’m speaking offensively, we started too slow. I think after a week like we had last week, that’s disappointing. I think that’s the difference in some of these games. I think you just can’t be where we were in the first half, 0-5 or 0-6 on third down and doing some things early and expect...
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...
Browns safety Usama Young will start against Buffalo in place of Eric Hagg, who was beaten for a touchdown pass last week in Cincinnati.
Young, who started eight games last season, has yet to play a defensive snap this season.
Hagg started Cleveland's first two games. He gave up a 44-yard TD pass in the 34-27 loss to the Bengals.
Browns tight end Alex Smith was also inactive...
A huge game in many ways for the Browns moving forward as they host the Buffalo Bills in Cleveland this afternoon. The Browns will look to keep up their offense rhythm from last week’s loss to the Bengals while also hopefully improving a bit on the defensive side.
From the leadership side of things, many are already saying how bad a loss would be for the combination of Mike...
Jimmy won't be taking losing sitting down for long. Are you watching this, Jimmy Haslam? Do you taste the bitter gruel that Browns fans have been choking down for what seems like forever? Sunday's loss against Buffalo was classic New Browns: Take a decent amount of momentum from the week before and have that small bit of impetus come to a crashing halt during a...
Cleveland Browns vs Buffalo Bills

Last week Brandon and Trent give us some reason to hope. Let's see if they do the same thing at home.
The dreaded 0-3 start is unavoidable with CJ Spiller...
