Back in June I mentioned that I was in Hartford, Connecticut for Eric Mangini’s eleventh annual football fundamentals camp for high schoolers and that I’d write something up on the experience. As time passed before I had a proper chance to get to writing, I figured it was just well to wait until football season came back around so, here we are: For starters, read Zac Jackson’s column on his trip to Camp Mangini in 2009. Jackson’s experience at the Camp is entirely consistent with mine, and his description of the scene is dead on:  Camp Mangini takes place over a sprawling area of park land and school property; picture one of those huge sports complexes you see in Strongsville or Kent or Jackson, and picture it in an urban setting. But picture every inch of it being used by kids having the time of their lives, and picture enough volunteers who coordinate every detail (just the way Mangini likes it) and keep it running like clockwork. It’s an impressive operation. About the only per...

Browns Offer a ‘Taste of the Browns’ for the Cleveland Foodbank

Joe Thomas and Al “Bubba” Baker were the honorary co-chairs for the 14th annual Taste of the Browns last night at Cleveland Browns Stadium.

Cleveland Browns Film Room: Game 1, Richardson’s Debut Part 1

Like we did last year before it became fashionable, we’ll take a seat each week in our very own WFNY Browns film room and break down a little tape from the game, with a specific focus.  Do enjoy. Finally. Some actual football to break down. With so many question marks surrounding this team, we should have endless topics for the film room this year. I was curious about several...

Keys to the game week 2: Cleveland Browns vs. Cincinnati Bengals

Follow @ClevelandDTR By: Eric Grinnell 1. Contain A.J. Green The key to stopping the Bengals offense is to stop A.J. Green. Green is already one of the better receivers in the game, and constitutes a majority of the Bengals passing game (last year, Green accounted for 7 of Andy Dalton’s 20 passing TDs). If you stop Green, you should be able to stop Dalton and make the...

Richardson, Weeden in top five for rookie jersey sales

Dick’s Sporting Goods does the Jersey Report all season long indicating what jerseys are selling best nationwide. While Andrew Luck and Peyton Manning lead the overall list, the Browns are well-represented in the rookie list right now. Trent Richardson comes in at #3 maintaining the actual draft order of Andrew Luck, RG3 and himself. Luke Kuechly from the Carolina Panthers and...

WFNY Podcast – 2012-09-11 – Browns, Buckeyes, Suspensions and 2-point Conversions

Rick and Craig are back at it again and no we still don’t have an opener. Sorry, I was too busy bringing a new child into the world. Excuse me. Get off my back, ok? Anyway, Rick and I talked about the Browns and Buckeyes mostly. As soon as I get TD or Jon on we’ll get some Tribe in the action. Scott will make an appearance soon too, I’m thinking. Joe Haden’s suspension Pat...

Brandon Weeden Gets Caught Under American Flag Before the Game

Perhaps this was a sign we should’ve taken heed to before the ball was even kicked off. Brandon Weeden got caught under flag during the pregame ceremonies. Now this is the starting quaterback of an NFL team, he should be able to out run 80% of the population, but the fact that he couldn’t out run the flag holders might be a slight cause of concern. While this is quite funny...

Browns' Fujita returns to practice this week

Cleveland Browns linebacker Scott Fujita was returned to the team's 53-man roster on Monday and will practice this week. The NFL had given the Browns a roster exemption on Friday after an appeals panel overturned Fujita's suspension for his alleged participation in a bounty program. That allowed the Browns to have 54 players for the opener. That exemption was lifted Monday...

Trent Richardson Fully Practices Wednesday

Browns running back Trent Richardson (knee) was a full participant in practice Wednesday, according to Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon-Journal.Fantasy Spin:Richardson carried the ball 19 times in his debut Sunday, but he couldn't create much against the Eagles (2.1 ypc). Expect a better performance in Week 2 against the Bengals, though his value could be hurt by fellow rookie...

MSF Quick Chat: The Greatness of Brandon Weeden

Throughout the day I will have short chat conversations with other MSF writers about various topics. Some of these conversations make me laugh. I’ve decided it’s time to start posting them. The following conversation took place moments ago between me and MSF fantasy author (and creepy library stalker) Nicholas Gerlach. The topic? Cleveland Browns rookie QB Brandon Weeden, whose...

Cleveland Browns vs. Cincinnati Bengals: Three Bold Predictions

The Bengals play host to the inner-state rival Cleveland Browns this Sunday, and the stakes are very high for Cincinnati already. After being obliterated on Monday Night Football by division foe Baltimore, the Bengals cannot afford to lose two division games right out of the gates.The Cleveland Browns put up an even less impressive performance Sunday at home against the Eagles.The...
