Big scare for Cleveland Browns receiver Josh Cribbs last night. He received a 54-yard Sam Koch punt and made his way upfield for 14 yards, and then was stopped cold in his tracks as Ravens linebacker Dannell Ellerbe crushed him with a devestating shoulder-to-helmet hit that sent Cribbs' helmet flying and his head crashing to the ground.
He lay on the field for a while...
Craig Robertson was an undrafted free agent out of the University of North Texas who made his first presence last year for the Browns. Robertson has done an amazing job for the Cleveland Browns defense. Robertson who ended the season last year on the Browns practice squad, was signed to a reserve/futures contract in 2012. Let me tell you, this is how you make someone notice...
Pat Shurmur has a guy the Browns used their number one draft pick for, his name is Trent Richardson. He can make some big plays if he can get the ball in his hands. Yet the Cleveland Browns have only handed him the football 26 times in the last tow games. That is how many times he should be getting the ball per game. Richardson has shown if given the chance he can make things happen...

In a year where up is down and down is up, one thing has remained constant, the Browns suck. Of the only 2 remaining 0-3 teams left in the NFL, the Browns are the one that isn’t even the slightest bit surprising. They are currently in the lead in the Blow for Barkley sweepstakes and should remain on the pole throughout the season.

The fan reaction to the return of the regular NFL referees in time for the Cleveland Browns to play the Baltimore Ravens is funny. While some fans where excited to see the return of the regular NFL refs, other said the Browns are going to need a lot more than the regular NFL refs to get a win against the Baltimore Ravens. The NFL extended the deal for 8 years to bring the referees...

“He battled.” — Pat Shurmur on Weeden
“Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden and his young, inexperienced receivers grew up a lot in Baltimore Thursday night, making the Ravens sweat it out until the last play of the game when they had a chance to tie it.” — Mary Kay Cabot
BEREA, Ohio (AP) -- Once he's handed the ball on Thursday night, Trent Richardson knows what's next.
Hall of Fame-level contact.
"Ray Lewis is going to come at me," the Browns rookie running back said, "and I'm going to come right back at him. That's football."
Richardson, quarterback Brandon Weeden and Cleveland's other rookies are about to...
Fans around the league might not remember the Sunday game anymore, now that a wild Week 3 has been capped by one of the biggest referee mistakes in history. The Ravens pulled off a crazy last-minute upset, fueled by a grieving Torrey Smith, and may or may not have missed the field goal.After all those ups and downs, will they be able to show up for the divisional matchup against...
You have got to give the Cleveland Browns credit...they made it close and took it down to the final seconds of the game... And this was Brandon Weeden's best game so far as a rookie quarterback in the NFL, despite incessant pressure from the Ravens' pass rush...But in the end, the Ravens wore down the 0-4 Browns, winning by the margin of a Cary Williams interception pick...

We’re 30 minutes of gametime into the return of the real refs and it’s already a refreshing return to normalcy. The game moves at better than glacial pace. Why, it may even end before 1 a.m. Fights after the play are promptly broken up without sidelines clearing and extended delays. The only derps so far belong where they should: with the Browns offense.
The Cleveland defense...
In prime-time, it's the Browns and Baltimore Ravens. Will the same slow starting Browns show-up, or will Pat Shurmur lead an enthusiastic team to an upset?
Stranger things have happened.
