Waiting For Next Year:
It’s tough to play the offensive line in this league. I think he also has crossed those hurdles as you go through the offseason. This will be his first game as a pro. I anticipate he’s going to battle. I anticipate he’ll have a winning performance. If he makes mistakes along the way, we’ll get them fixed and keep moving. [...] I think he’s a guy that started and played in almost every single game in his college career. He’s gone through this getting ready to play process. He’s played a lot of snaps. I think that gives me a little bit more comfort than a guy that came in and maybe was a one-year starter or there was something about his college history where he hadn’t played all that much. I think he’s draws on that a little bit. I think he’s playing with some guys in that offensive line that are veteran players. Even though they might not be right next to him, although Shawn Lauvao has played a couple years now, I think they’ll help him get through it. I just know by his personality that he’s going to battle. That’s what you need from an offensive lineman.

BEREAThere are several Browns players who will make their NFL debuts on Sunday , including top picks pick Trent Richardson, Mitchell Schwartz and Josh Gordon.
However, probably the biggest one will be the debut of quarterback Brandon Weeden, the 22nd overall pick from Oklahoma State.
Weeden knows this is not the same stage as when he made his professional debut as a pitcher in...
Good bye, you piece of **** Art Modell. It’s never a happy day when someone dies, but…oh, wait, yes it is a happy day. We lost a disgusting visage of hypocrisy and greed today, and for that, we should all celebrate. This is a man who through his own bumbling idiocy somehow claimed financial troubles [...]
Cleveland Browns fans are tired of waiting and hoping for someday. The Browns had the fourth youngest team in the NFL last year; and they are going to be even younger in 2012. Fifteen rookies including QB Brandon Weeden and RB Trent Richardson made the team to go along with 11 second-year players and seven players entering their third year. That means that 62% (33 players) of...
The news on Thursday of Art Modell’s death landed like a thud for those who root for the Cleveland Browns.
Enough time has passed where there is no chance there will be celebration in the streets. Had this happened 13 or 14 years ago, it would’ve looked like Washington, D.C. in the hours after Osama Bin Laden’s death on Euclid Avenue. That doesn’t mean Cleveland fans have...
Trent Richardson had 2 knee surgeries this offseason, including one just about a month ago, but he’s still expected to start this week against the Eagles. However, the Browns may limit his carries after he was limited in practice all week. Montario Hardesty will be the beneficiary of Richardson ceding any carries on early downs, while 3rd down specialist Brandon Jackson will continue...

Browns cornerback Joe Haden said he'll mirror Eagles receiver DeSean Jackson in coverage this Sunday, according to the Akron Beacon Journal.Fantasy Spin:Haden is one of the best cover corners in the league, so this is bad news for Jackson owners. Still, you don't play Jackson for his high volume of catches, you play him for his big play potential and the presence of Haden...
Art Modell died early this morning in Baltimore. This will elicit a wide range of emotions across the sports universe, but most particularly in the city that brought him his wealth and power, Cleveland, Ohio.
