Browns receiver tackled on a three-yard out on 3rd-and-5 … DRINK! Mike Holmgren talking retirement plans on Seattle radio again … DRINK! Randy Lerner’s plane touches down in Hamptons airport … DRINK! Pat Shurmur post-game presser … GLUG, GLUG, GLUG, GLUG, GLUG. BATTLED.
And in how much more style than with this beauty? A limited edition Tim Couch commemorative bottle from Maker’s Mark, proceeds from which will go to the Gill Heart Institute at University of Kentucky’s hospital.
If Lerner had any sense of humanity at all, he’d buy the whole run and distribute to season ticket holders. What better conduit to re-deliver some of the innocent hope of the days before Couch traded the blue and white for orange and brown? Just like it’s not our fault, it really wasn’t Tim’s, either. And you won’t want to toss this gem at your TV. That the proceeds will go to help fix broken hearts makes it too perfect.
If someone really wants to class up this year’s draft party … In other news, a good f
BEST OF MAXIM
Rams GM Les Snead thought it was important to correct the record after Mike Holmgren’s conference call with Browns season ticket holders last week where Holmgren stated that the Browns offer to the Rams for the draft pick that would have allowed them to select Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III was “every bit the offer that was chosen.” Holmgren also said that St. Louis...

The Browns visited with Jonathan Goff of the Super Bowl champion New York Giants on Tuesday. Goff didn’t play the entire season after tearing his ACL on the Monday before the first week of the season.

Though free agents have apparently been steering clear of Berea, reports are circulating that place Virginia Tech running back David Wilson in front of Mike Holmgren and company in early April.
According to Scout.com’s Aaron Wilson, the draft hopeful will visit both the Browns as well as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, owners of the fourth- and fifth-overall picks in the upcoming NFL...
Mike Holmgren did it again.
He called his old buddy in Seattle to talk football. Many fans and media are up in arms about it not because of what he said, but because he’s seemingly out there talking to Seattle more frequently than he is talking to Browns fans. That assessment might be harsh, but in the world of sports and entertainment where fans cling to every word, perception...
