“Tiger got to hunt, bird got to fly; Man got to sit and wonder, ‘Why, why, why?’ Tiger got to sleep, bird got to land; Man got to tell himself he understand.” — Kurt Vonnegut
Just because we’re a few months late posting this article that raises an issue that’s been an issue forever doesn’t mean we’re not talking about one of the most offensively regressive states of affairs imaginable in sport, American business, and with respect to human evolution, generally. Which is the NFL’s incredible refusal to release its readily available “All-22″ game footage to the public for no reason at all other than that the NFL wants us to be stupid.
In this excellent Wall Street Journal piece by Reed Albergotti from last November, it’s explained that: “[e]very play during an NFL game is filmed from multiple angles in high definition.” But while “NFL TV broadcasts have relied most heavily on one view: the shot from a sideline camera that follows the progress of the ball,” of co

Yesterday Tom Heckert spoke with Dustin Fox and Adam the Bull on 92.3 FM for nearly 30 minutes. Certainly that was far more than he spoke when he and Mike Holmgren held a dual presser together at the end of the Browns season. I thought the Bull and the Fox did a good job asking pretty pointed questions even if they didn’t get many answers. They asked about Colt McCoy, Peyton...
Cleveland Browns running back Peyton Hillis will become a free agent this offseason and it looks like the Browns might be interested in trying to work out a new contract.
Browns general manager Tom Heckert said that he hasn’t spoken with Hillis’ reps since midseason and will do so again “in the next week or so.”
“We wouldn’t be adverse to brining him back,” Heckert...
We all know that the Browns and their 4-12 record missed the playoffs, but it had me thinking. Are there even any influential players left in the playoffs that are former Browns? Obviously guys playing special teams for San Francisco are important like Blake Costanzo are important, but I’m excluding guys like that. I mean like real, bona fide starters and difference-makers...
Other than hiring an offensive coordinator, Cleveland Browns head coach Pat Shurmur did not plan on making any changes to his coaching staff this offseason, <img class="alignright" title="The Cleveland Browns will have to make one ... [visit site to read more]

Many wanted to laugh at the Raiders’ new GM Reggie McKenzie for firing the coach, Hue Jackson yesterday after one season of 8-8 football. From where I sit it looks like it could be entirely reasonable. Granted, a lot will depend on who the Raiders hire and what they do next year, but given our own experiences with the Browns and Mike Holmgren, it doesn’t look totally crazy...
Chuck Crow / The Plain DealerColt McCoy CantonRep.com reporter Steve Doerschuk writes how Browns general manager Tom Heckert said on a recent radio interview how Colt McCoy is the guy right now when it comes to the Browns quarterback. The Browns...
Where were you when John Elway became a legend following The Drive?
Browns scored just 13.56 points per game with Pat Shurmur doubling as head coach and offensive coordinator. Several other teams are looking for not only head coaches, but people to run their offenses. Links to more Browns stories.
After two seasons, does team president's generally positive message resonate with Browns' fans? More links to Browns stories.
"I'm not ready to start over again at the QB position. With Barkley and Jones staying in school, this will ultimately allow us to not draft a QB this year and give Colt one more chance to play well with weapons at his disposal. I feel that if Barkley would have came out, he would have been our pick." - jflow21
