Found November 02, 2012 on Cleveland Sports 360:
The 2012 N.F.L. Trade deadline has passed and the man who the Browns blamed for all their problems in 2011 is still a member of the Cleveland Browns. There were lots of people who said McCoy would be traded by the Browns, how stupid is that statement? The Browns know better than to trade Colt McCoy, they would be left without a viable back-up quarterback that give the Browns a shot at winning football games.  The fans have been brain-washed by Pat Shurmur’s attempt to place all the blame for his terrible rookie season as a head coach of the Cleveland Browns. Rather than take the blame for his on lack of abilities to use any imagination as a head coach, Shurmur made a quarterback switch so it would look as though all the Browns problems were because they didn’t have a good quarterback. These same fans fell for the bait and switch and have come to hate McCoy. They say McCoy plays a dink and dunk offense and that is all he is good for, they say McCoy doesn’t have the arm strength to co...

The Browns won a game last week, don't get use to it. Week 9 preview.

Browns fans are trying to convince me that I was wrong to say they were going to win 0-2 games.  The fact is, this is not a good team.  Maybe they win 5 games, it doesn't matter.  They don't have enough talent on this roster to make a playoff run anytime in the future.   Denver at Cincinnati - The Boncos and Peyton Manning have things rolling now on both sides...

Joe Haden: Browns have closed gap within AFC North

We definitely feel like [we've closed the gap within the AFC North]. We feel like we were in the division [games], but we were just a couple plays off. Now that we’ve beat Cincinnati and we’re coming off of this last week’s win, we just feel like there’s no reason why we can’t keep these wins coming. They’re a beatable team, they’re really talented though not to...

Browns To Face A Beat Up Worn Out Ravens Defense Browns Getting Just 3-1/2 Points

The Cleveland Browns come into the Baltimore Ravens game getting just 3-1/2 points from the odds makers. The Browns are getting some respect from the odds makers even though the team only has 2 wins on the season. The Cleveland Browns have lost to the Baltimore Ravens since they returned to the NFL in 1999. The Browns are very optimistic about their chances of a win this Sunday against...

Hurricane Sandy Unearths 15-Year-Old Cleveland Stadium Rubble From Lake Eerie

15 Years ago, the dilapidated Cleveland Stadium -- former home of the Browns and Indians -- was demolished. Though Cleveland was without a football team for a bit, it's since been replaced by Progressive Field and Cleveland Browns Stadium -- shiny new-age facilities featuring all the amenities you'd expect. After the demolition, pieces of the stadium were...

Thursday Night Football: safe for the players?

Being a woman of the generation when girls were only permitted to play touch football if their male friends invited them to be on the team, I've never played tackle football. I can only imagine the pain the players must feel after a 60-minute game of hits that are rougher than some car accidents. As a nurse, I know all that hitting produces intense inflammation, and with it...

Browns activate DT Phil Taylor

CLEVELAND (AP) -- The Browns' defense got a whole lot bigger, and a whole lot healthier. Massive tackle Phil Taylor was activated Friday from the physically-unable-to-perform list and will play Sunday against Baltimore. It will be Taylor's season debut after missing Cleveland's first eight games after undergoing surgery on a torn chest muscle he hurt lifting weights...

Hurricane Sandy Caused Pieces of Cleveland Municipal Stadium to Wash Ashore

Hurricane Sandy may have crippled the Eastern Seaboard, but it looks like Cleveland had to deal with an odd situation caused by the "superstorm". Sandy caused bits and pieces of the old Cleveland Municipal Stadium to be thrown out of Lake Erie and wash ashore in nearby Bratenahl, Ohio. Why was the wreckage of the stadium in Lake Erie you ask? Simple. When the former...

Browns' Weeden learning on the fly

BEREA, Ohio (AP) -- Brandon Weeden had his trigger finger ready. While relaxing at home Tuesday night, Cleveland's rookie quarterback was reviewing the Sept. 27 game against Baltimore on his iPad when he came to that fateful moment in the third quarter. With the Browns trailing just 16-10 and driving for a potential go-ahead touchdown, Weeden hung a third-down pass toward the...

INSIDE THE CLOSET OF “NFL FASHION PLATE” JOSH CRIBBS

Showcasing personal style on the gridiron is not an option for NFL players. Even a slight alteration to their team uniform, such as a cleat color change, can result in a football fashion-related fine. Off-the-field, players have free reign when it comes to their sartorial decisions. In the NFL, the competition extends off-the-field as guys vie for best-dressed honors. Cleveland...

Can The Cleveland Browns Expect A Wide Open Josh Gordon Against Baltimore?

Ravens. Some Browns fans think the Ravens defense is old and slowing down. The fact is they are coming off one of the teams biggest losses of the season. I look for Ed Reed the Ravens safety to have a few things to say about Gordon running down the middle of the field wide open. Reed may even bait Brandon Weeden into some bad decisions. The Browns were on the look out for Reed in...

Pick of the week: Browns (+3.5) vs. Ravens

  No matter how many good young assets the Browns put together, if they are going to be a competitive in the coming years, they are going to have to be able to get past divisional opponents. That means playing the Bengals, Steelers and Ravens six times every year.  After starting the 0-5, including giving the Giants a scare in week five, Cleveland has won two of...

Not in a long time can I remember this much talk between teams heading into a game as there has been leading up to this Sunday’s match-up between the Browns and Ravens. Trent Richardson is going to exchange jerseys with Ray Rice. The Browns think they’re a different team than the one that lost on Thursday night. Trent Richardson is the hardest player to tackle in the league according...
