PLAYERS: Colt McCoy
TEAMS: Cleveland Browns
Cleveland-browns-tampa-bay
You can say what you want to say about Colt McCoy, but one thing you can’t say is you heard his teammates bashing him the way that Trent Richardson did Weeden when he thought he was off the record. As a matter of fact the Browns weren’t even midway through the season in 2012 when a report surfaced with Josh Cribs saying the Browns would have a better chance to win if McCoy was playing quarterback. As the days go by and the Browns continue to sell Mr. Weeden to the non believers, it is becoming clear that the team made a mistake wasting their second pick in the 2012 draft on a guy that just doesn’t get it. The fans in Cleveland have grown accustomed to losing football seasons. They have consistently seen a winner on the football field since the team returned to the NFL in 1999. They haven’t seen a starting quarterback that was able to step into the role of starter and lead the team on the field for 3 years in a row. Heck they haven’t seen a coaching staff that could last in Cleveland...

  • Weeden is an old guy that went looking for a backup sport. The Browns were the foolish ones that gave him a chance.
    Jettison Weeden via whatever means it takes.
    If Smith falls to the Browns at #6, "TAKE HIM! FAST!" And, keep Colt as a backup. He has the football acumen to be a quality backup for the Browns.
    Colt is a team player and a quality gent. That makes him a valuable asset worth keeping.

I don’t feel like it, but let’s talk Browns

People are always talking about the Browns, it seems. Usually I’m one of the ones talking the most, but I don’t really feel like it right now.

Browns reportedly love Geno Smith

According to Matt Miller of Bleacher Report, the Cleveland Browns love former West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith in this year’s draft.  They didn’t expect him to be available when they go on the board with the sixth pick, but now that the Chiefs traded for Alex Smith, they might be able to snatch him up. I don’t think the new Browns regime believes they have their quarterback...

A Weeden Fan Sent Me A Message To Show Me How Confident Weeden Is That He Will Win The Starting Job

There are some people in Cleveland that think Brandon Weeden is the next coming.

Attack is the keyword for the Browns defense

Some day its the chicken, others the egg. So it goes with the Cleveland Browns' new defensive system, a chicken or egg question if ever there was one. Did the Browns adopt the new system because they hired coaches who believe in it, or did they choose the coaches because they believe in the Browns preferred system? CEO Joe Banner had a plain answer last week when he met the...

Brandon Weeden Says He’ll Be Browns Starting QB In 2013

Brandon Weeden has a new owner, general manager, head coach, and overall system.  That normally doesn’t bold well for a quarterback that wasn’t hand-picked by the incoming coach. Weeden may not be the favorite to start in his coaches eyes, but according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Weeden has “no doubt” that he’ll be the starting quarterback for the Browns this coming...

Come (back) to Colinwood

There was a really good piece by Joe Crea in the Plain Dealer last week about an influx of new businesses and other development in Cleveland’s Collinwood neighborhood (“where Frankie Yankovic first learned to polka”) and its center, the Waterloo Road District, home of one of the best concert venues (and brunch spots) in the U.S.A., the Beachland Ballroom. The article contains...

In depth 2013: Cleveland Browns

Few teams are going through more change this offseason than the Cleveland Browns. … Again. This time the turnover includes not just a new coach or quarterback, but a new ownership group led by Jimmy Haslam.

WFNY Podcast – 2013-02-26 Scott Raab talks Cleveland sports, Warren Zevon and more

I stuttered like a fool to open the podcast this week. Scott Raab is a pretty regular guy who sets you at ease, but I still managed to stutter right into the opening just the same like a nervous Nelly. Anyway, after letting him laugh at me, Scott and I spent a nice amount of time discussing the news of the day in longer form. Of course, to keep up with Scott Raab you can follow him...
