Found November 24, 2012 on Waiting For Next Year:

Positive news arrives from the Cleveland Browns media relations department today. And yes, I can’t remember the last time I typed such a sentence. But I’m sure this statement didn’t arrive immediately after the Ohio State Buckeyes game as merely just a coincidence: After further and careful consideration, we felt it was in the best interests of everyone involved that we not have a giveaway item at tomorrow’s game. It is something that was intended to be fun for our fans and that they could rally around and we regret that some didn’t perceive it that way. We want to thank all of our fans for their tremendous support and we look forward to seeing them out in force at the stadium tomorrow. So it looks like after all, there will be no white flag giveaway against the Pittsburgh Steelers after all. With Charlie Batch starting, Joe Haden playing and now this, the week has continued to get better and better for Browns fans.

Browns push past hobbled Steelers 20-14

Is there an opportunity for the Browns to beat Pittsburgh? Ask Brandon Weeden

When Cleveland Browns owner Jimmy Haslam, a self-confessed Steelers fan, bought the team, he said one of his first priorities was to revive the Cleveland-Pittsburgh rivalry.

How Ironic Is It The Team That Put Colt McCoy Out Of Service Forced His Return Into N.F.L.Action?

Almost one year ago, the Pittsburgh Steelers knocked the Cleveland Browns quarterback Colt McCoy out of action. Today the Steelers knocked the Browns 29-year-old rookie Brandon Weeden out of action forcing head coach Pat Shurmur to  play his back up Colt McCoy. I wonder what went Shurmur’s mind?
