Found December 12, 2012 on The Penalty Flag:
PLAYERS: Josh Gordon
TEAMS: Cleveland Browns

It has been more than 20 years since the Cleveland Browns have had a true threat at wide receiver and that was Webster Slaughter. For the sake of this article, I'm leaving out Ozzie Newsome because he was a tight end, not a wide out. Don't look now, but the Browns just might have found their man and that is Josh 'Flash' Gordon.It is no question that Josh Gordon is the Browns' best wide receiver right now. He led the team in yards (805)… Read more

Browns Brandon Weeden, Throw him at the mercy of last year’s awful offensive line and he wouldn’t have lasted the season

As the headline of this article states, if Brandon Weeden would have played for the Cleveland Browns in the 2011 season with the line Cleveland had, it is doubtful he would have been able to complete the season.  Some of the reasons as to why, include Weeden holding onto the...

Is Richardson Progressing or Regressing?

Redskins vs. Browns Reader’s Survey

Will he or won’t he? If he does, how effective can he be? With a healthy Browns defense as healthy as they’ve been all year seemingly every week, does it matter?

The Redskins are riding a four game...

Shurmur says Browns still preparing for RG3

Shurmur: 'I'm not worried about saving my job'

BEREA, Ohio (AP) -- The Browns are still mathematically alive in the AFC playoff hunt. It's a long shot, but they haven't been eliminated with three games remaining. And with every win, Pat Shurmur's odds of returning as Cleveland's coach improve. With his team riding a three-game winning streak -- the Browns' longest since 2009 -- Shurmur feels good about the...
