Found July 09, 2013 on Cleveland Sports 360:
How much better is Brandon Weeden going to be this season mentally? If you recall last season he came out after he discovered what a tight end was and  told everyone via the news media they didn’t have those at Oklahoma State. Of course he was kidding (we hope) and he found out you can throw the football to these guys and they can make things happen for the offense. This off-season it seems like Weeden is more mentally prepared to come to camp and compete for the starting job. He has even talked up Browns tight end Jordan Cameron. Weeden thinks he will be a good fit in Norv Turner’s offense. What a difference one off season in the NFL has made in Weeden’s life. In 2012 he didn’t know what a tight end was, and in 2013 he thinks one could make a difference in Turner’s offense. Is this a sign of good things to come? Is Weeden busting his hump studying Turner’s play book? Is he actually doing things this off-season to make himself a student of the game? Just imagine if he has. The team ...
  • Another piece of absolute crap from the worst 'fan' in the world, Larry Glicken (L.G) of He is simply the worst writer in the history of sports. On top of his total lack of talent, and very limited education, he has this very worrying obsession with Browns Quarterback Brandon Weeden.
    He writes piece after piece about him, always negative, like some spurned lover, and seems to enjoy his childish jabs at him at every turn. You can almost imagine him laughing like a giddy child as he writes the bile that he does.
    He is the same about most things the Browns do, yet still claims he is a 'fan' of the team.
    In just the last 2 weeks, he has written critical pieces about Trent Richsardson, Jim Brown, Jimmy Haslam, Josh Gordon, and at least 4 pieces about Weeden.
    He genuinely needs some counseling, and Yardbarker could help with his treatment by doing what most decent people would do in this situation, not publish his stuff until he grows up, writes like an adult, and gets rid of his frightening crush on the Browns QB. His pieces are substandard anyway, and so repetitive it is laughable. He clearly failed at everything else in life, and seems to want to set records for the number of terrible articles from the same source.
    This guy needs help. And soon. What an awful, awful, writer.
  • I hope all these writers and reporters BASHING The Browns eat crow Once this team gets there act together I will be on the phone and online RIPPING these blank holes apart
  • Great comment Carlisle. I agree with you entirely, though we both know we won't see it. Your first call should be to L.G though, and I would love to be in on it too.
    This guy is the 'worst fan in the world' but he will be the first in line for a playoff ticket just as soon as the Browns get there. The rest of them will be in line too Carlisle, and they will all be saying the same thing, namely that they never doubted their team, and they all saw this success coming long before the rest of us.
    Lying hypocrites the lot of them. Those with a little intelligence and foresight can see what is happening in Cleveland right now, and we deserve all the good things that will happen to our team soon.
    If you want good, honest, coverage of the Browns, Carlisle, you could try
    You sound like a good fir for those real fans. L.G is just a clown, except nobody is laughing anymore.......

Grantland discusses Browns chances of climbing out of basement

Browns Games: Now With Wiener Dog Races
