Waiting For Next Year:
There’s just no doubting how great Phil Dawson is at this point, and Peter King has his ticket for the bandwagon.
Twenty-three straight field goals, 21 of them this year, and his consecutive kicks of 32, 28, 29, 33 and 41 in a 32-minute span between the second and fourth quarters gave the Browns a 15-14 lead late against Baltimore. Dawson’s an unsung player, in part because so often his kicks are in losing causes. But a kick’s a kick, and he did his part Sunday against a division rival that owns the Browns.
Phil Dawson. What else is there to say, really?

BEST OF MAXIM
Browns head coach Pat Shurmur, from yesterday’s session with the media-
I can’t tell you exactly. I know exactly why. There were a couple situations getting the right people in the game, getting the play to the quarterback in a timely fashion and then him calling it properly. That’s the string of events. There were a couple times yesterday that didn’t get done. I’m absolutely...
Who caught your eye? Did someone stand out? Who blew it? That’s what were interested in this morning. Winners and losers.
The Browns kicked five field goals after falling behind 14-0. Unfortunately, they couldn’t hold that lead. This morning we start picking it apart.
LOSER: Communication. Unreal. Get your stuff together. The Browns continue to waste timeouts and opportunities...
As it is, the Browns are hardly must-see television; quite the opposite, in fact. But that stands to change, thanks to the influence of new ownership.
According to the Cleveland Plain-Dealer, Dee Haslam, wife of owner Jimmy Haslam, is teaming up her production company RIVR Media with NFL Films to bring a Browns-centric documentary series to Travel Channel.
[The goal is] to win. If it’s a 100-yard game, it’s a 100-yard game. If it’s a 50-yard game, it’s a 50-yard game. As long as we are winning and as long as we are doing everything we can fundamentally to put our self in a better situation for winning the game. [...] I’m very excited about these last seven games because we can make a big difference especially when people...
It isn’t Hard Knocks, but it appears the Browns are going to be the stars of a television series-
“The National Football League will announce a deal with the network to provide unprecedented access to one of its teams as it travels to away games. NFL Road Tested: The Cleveland Browns will premiere Dec. 4 at 10 p.m. and follow the Browns as it prepares to play in New York, Baltimore...
Trent Richardson rushed 25 times for 105 yards in the Browns’ Week 9 loss to the Ravens.Richardson got every single carry for the Browns, setting a career-high in rushes in the process. He also added six catches for 31 yards, giving him an impressive 31 grabs through nine games. The rookie has proven he’s over his rib injury over the last two weeks by posting back-to-back 100...
With time to reflect, Browns coach Pat Shurmur says he would change some play calls and reconsider other decisions he made in the fourth quarter of Sunday's loss to Baltimore.
The Browns were beaten 25-15 by the Ravens, who put the game away in the final four minutes after stopping Cleveland on a fourth-and-2 play. Instead of punting from his own 28, Shurmur, who still had two...
Might we be able to go streaking?
A win against the Ravens today would give the Browns an honest-to-God win streak AND they’ll have won two-in-a-row within the division.
While I’m not super duper confident heading into this game, there is some reason for optimism. The Browns played the Ravens fairly well in Baltimore (without Joe Haden), Phil Taylor is making his season debut...
The same network that has brought you shows like Man vs Food, Bizarre Foods, No Reservations, and Ghost Adventures is now entering the NFL world. The Travel Channel is partnering with NFL Films to follow one NFL team on their travels throughout the regular season.
And that team is... the Cleveland Browns.
The 2-7 Cleveland Browns.
NFL Road Tested: The Cleveland Browns...
Serving as a mid-season review that couples in ensuring he maintains his relevance throughout the regular season, ESPN draftnik Mel Kiper Jr has unveiled who he feels each team would select tomorrow if given the chance.
Coupling this with the Cleveland Browns most recent loss, a ten-point beating at the hands of the Baltimore Ravens, the position of “need” labeled byKiper may...
1) Its always interesting to sit back and watch firing season. Guy loses, everyone cries for him to be fired. Guy loses two, more guys call for firings. Now, 19 losses in 24 games is a lot of losses and does not burnish the resume. And there have been some very shaky decisions on the sidelines for the 2012 Cleveland Browns, but some of them are shaky simply because they did not work...
Head coach Pat Shurmur demands better execution in short yardage.
The Ravens’ offense slowed down in the second quarter and the Browns took advantage.
Fortunately for the Ravens, the Browns taking advantage is kicking three field goals. Veteran kicker Phil Dawson has provided all the scoring for the Browns with short field goals.
At the half, the Ravens lead 14-9.
