TEAMS: Cleveland Browns

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter via Evan Silva, the Cleveland Browns still really like Colt McCoy as their quarterback, and it doesn’t look like they’ll use the 4th overall pick to take Texas A&M quarterback Ryan Tannehill.

“(They) really like Colt McCoy … It doesn’t look like they’re interested in Ryan Tannehill with the number 4 pick,” said Schefter per Silva.

Right now I expect the Browns to take Oklahoma State wide receiver Justin Blackmon with the 4th overall pick and maybe take a quarterback with the 22nd overall pick or early in the second round.

The Browns definitely need to go with Blackmon because they don’t have weapons for their quarterback to work with, whether that’s McCoy or not.


Feeling good about Browns prospects at tight end

Earlier, I predicted that the Browns are probably overrating their running backs. It concerns me because much like they did with wide receivers the year before, the Browns seem like they could be betting on question marks. Well, when it comes to tight ends, I am really encouraged by the prospects of the Browns getting some breakout performances at the position this year. The Browns...

The Browns' best hope is Heckert

BEREA -- The best hope for the Cleveland Browns sat at a podium Thursday and talked about the teams draft plans.He didnt explain everything, because he cant. But he sure explained a lot. And he did it in a friendly, patient way that brought at least a little belief that it might well work. It has to happen, but at this point in their history the Browns need any sense of belief...

A Quick Splash of Refreshing Honesty: Writes, Deletes, “Browns could realistically be 0-13″

It might be tempting to view this sort of thing as high-level trolling, but given what passes for content at, the folks at the NFL’s website were coming off like Abe Lincoln here. At least before they went and edited the online column. Here’s what the page used to say: Let’s play “Find the win so the Browns can avoid going 0-16.” They’ll be...

Why do the Browns play the Eagles twice in three weeks?

Something has been staring us all in the face since the NFL schedule came out and I don’t think anyone has brought it up yet. Thankfully for us, we have the benefit of readership that is more observant than we are. We were alerted to the fact that the Browns play the Eagles in the all-important, “dress-rehearsal” third game of the preseason a mere two weeks before the Eagles...

Predicting wins and losses is more difficult than the Browns schedule

Remember this one? We used this before predicting the 2010 Browns record. The Cleveland Browns rattled off four wins to end a tumultuous 2009 season. Prior to the four wins the Browns only other win was one of the least entertaining football games I’ve ever watched in my NFL-watching history as the Browns beat the Bills 6-3 in some ridiculous wind. Still, the Browns seemed headed...

Shurmur happy to have an offseason program

The first day having the team together after more than three months away might not seem like a big deal to those on the outside, but it was a very big deal to Browns coach Pat Shurmur.There were no offseason programs in the NFL last year because of the lockout. That meant no supervised conditioning or instruction until the start of training camp. Four hundred fifty nine days after...

2012 NFL Mock Draft: Cleveland Browns 7-Round Edition

Photo Credit: John H. Reid III/ The long list of needs the Cleveland Browns must address in the upcoming 2012 NFL Draft is centered almost entirely around the offense. Cleveland averaged just 288.8 total yards (29th in the league) and ranked 30th in the NFL with 13.6 points per game in 2011, while the defense finished 10th overall (332.4 YPG), fifth in scoring...

They’ve also already hosted him during one of their pre-draft visits.

The Karen Foundation for MS Browns Draft Party at Barley House in Cleveland

The Karen Foundation for MS will be having their annual Cleveland Browns Draft Party at Barley House in Cleveland on April 28th, and you really should get down there that day if you're in the area. Cavs superfan and Browns superstar Joe Haden will be in house for the event, as well as our good friend and legend Dan Coughlin who will be the MC. A long list of other special guests...

Poll Results: What are the Browns chances week by week for 2012?

The poll is still open, but I figured with over 500 responses it was enough of a sample to do some math, calculate some results and run some trials. I know that the stats don’t work 100% and that when you try to apply math to an equation as large as an NFL season encompassing coaches, players, weather, stadiums, fans, referees, front offices and much more. At the same time, I figured...
