Found December 28, 2012 on WhoDeyFans:
You may not like hearing this, but the Cleveland Browns are inching their way toward being good again. Well, toward being somewhat competitive again. Sorry, I got a little bit ahead of myself there for a second. Browns fans won’t like hearing this, either. I’ve been saying for a few years now, and I’ll keep saying it no matter how much they dislike it. The Browns won’t be truly competitive again until they pick a quarterback, a head coach and a system and stick with them for more than one year. Today I was pleased to learn that Browns returner extraordinaire Josh Cribbs agrees with me. Frustrated after yet another loss last week to the Broncos, Cribbs vented his feeling about nearly everything: the organization, the fans, and the perennial changes. Here is an excerpt of his comments from Cleveland.com. “I hate that we rebuild every year,” he said. “You gotta teach guys how to play special teams because, in college, you don’t take special teams to heart.

Browns vs. Steelers Reader’s Survey

It’s going to be the toughest game to predict all year in all likelihood. The Browns and Steelers don’t have anything to play for but pride and paychecks. The teams are a mystery right now at least on the Browns’ side of the equation as Brandon Weeden, Trent Richardson and even Colt McCoy are questionable at best and out in all probability. It could be the last game as a member...

Change almost a certainty for Browns

Coach Pat Shurmur is likely to be replaced next week, and new owner...
