Found September 25, 2012 on Cleveland Frowns:
In the fallout of the latest thoroughly demoralizing loss of the Pat Shurmur era, a matchup in which the Browns were dominated in all three phases of the game by the Buffalo Bills, Shurmur and his friends at the Browns’ wholly owned press organ want you to know that it’s all Greg Little’s fault. Little dropped one five-yard pass in Browns’ territory with about 30 seconds left in the first half of a thoroughly demoralizing three-phase loss to the Buffalo Bills, and the best that the top Browns beat writer at the biggest paper in town can do for a story on the following Monday is this: “Cleveland Browns coach Pat Shurmur comes down hard on Greg Little.” In thirteen drives on Sunday, the Browns offense managed to cross the Bills’ 44-yard line exactly twice. On a staggering seven of these drives, they couldn’t move the ball more than 9 yards. Six of them were three-and-outs or worse, and eleven of the thirteen ended in punts (9) or interceptions (2). Brandon Weeden threw both of those ...

Coach Sam on Greg Little: “Get the Job Done and Stop the BS”

The Browns are 0-3 to start this 2012 NFL season, but as with any Browns season, there are clear trends beneath the won/loss records. The first week against Philly, the Browns were playing hard with a superior opponent. They were playing faster on defense than we’d seen at any point in the last decade. There were rookies and other young players all over the field were making life...

Just 50 Carries in, Trent Richardson is a Leader in Cleveland

While Greg Little is preening and posing amidst a 14-point deficit and a shower of hashtags, Browns running back Trent Richardson is mostly stoic and calculated. Certainly, when Richardson crosses the goal line as he has twice in his very young career, he exudes a level of energy that is matched only by Cleveland fans watching the plays as they unfold.
