PLAYERS: Joe Thomas
TEAMS: Cleveland Browns
Wisconsin native Joe Thomas is a key part of a rebuilding effort that has Cleveland off to a 3-3 start. Thomas, a six-time Pro Bowler, is one of the NFL's premier left tackles. He talks about the rise of the Browns and a mysterious matchup on Sunday against the team he grew up loving.

Can the Browns give fans anything to believe in this year?

It’s a confusing time to be a Browns fan. I guess it’s always a confusing time to be a Browns fan, but this is a conundrum almost unlike any other since 1999. The Cleveland Browns might not be traditional trailblazers, but they do find new and interesting ways to confuse their fans. The Cleveland Browns are in contention right now, but they’re really not. Their record says...

Browns fans despise Weeden so much, they are now hoping for a Tim Tebow resurrection of the Cleveland Offense.

In Cleveland, the fans are sick and tired of the Brandon Weeden failed experiment. The fans are hoping that all the reported Tim Tebow sightings mean the Cleveland Browns are close to signing the quarterback to bring him in to resurrect the Browns offense. The last time I searched for the whereabouts of Tebow, reports had him on  a family vacation in Hawaii. Yet, major television...

NFL News: Jabaal Sheard and Jason Pinkston back to practice

The injury news is better for the Cleveland Browns this week. OLB Jabaal Sheard is practicing today, and head coach Rob Chudzinski said he was very close to being able to play last Sunday. The team expects Sheard should be able to play in Green Bay on Sunday barring any setbacks. Also returning to practice was guard Jason Pinkston who was injured in the second preseason game against...

Is Chudzinski trying to win football games? It’s very questionable at this point in the Browns season. He says,Weeden must eliminate ‘critical mistakes’ He is the mistake

There are some who think the Cleveland Browns are intentionally trying to tank the 2013 season to be in line for a better pick in the 2014 NFL draft. When head coach Rob Chudzinski picked Hoyer to start and the team started to win football games, some let go of the notion the Browns were trying to lose on purpose. Now that Chudzinski is refusing to make a change at quarterback, some...

Browns OL Joe Thomas: ‘Brandon Weeden can Lead Us to Playoffs’

  It appeared that the Browns had given up on the 2013 season after an 0-2 start and trading RB Trent Richardson to the Colts.  Then Brian Hoyer came along and led the Browns to consecutive wins before he was injured in a Thursday night game vs. the Bills.  Brandon Weeden, who was the starter, came in the game and led the Browns to victory and first place in the AFC North. Despite...

Rod Chudzinski happy to get LB Jabaal Sheard back into lineup: 'He understands the defense really well'

Cleveland Browns LB Jabaal Sheard is working his way back into the defensive pass rushing rotation after the third-year pro sprained his knee in the Sept. 22 win at Minnesota, a game in which he recorded a sack and fumble recovery. Up until that point, the biggest question was if Sheard could make the transition from defensive end to linebacker, but his performance against the Vikings...

Browns say QB Brandon Weeden is their guy: 'We’ve got his back. So no worries over here'

Cleveland Browns QB Brandon Weeden has been hurt, benched, redeemed, and thrown back into the gutter. However, his teammates say they are behind him all the way and that they feel he can get the team to the playoffs.

Cleveland Browns Fan Posts ‘Quarterback Wanted’ Craigslist Ad, Says ‘If You Can Throw a Ball, Come Apply’

Brandon Weeden just isn’t cutting it in Cleveland in the minds of some fans. The Browns seemed to have some semblance of a shot this season, but one fan has grown impatient with the team’s quarterback, so that fan has taken to the best place to find whatever random thing you are looking for — Craigslist — in search of a new signal caller. Weeden has a 71.4 passer rating and...

Hysterical Craigslist job posting for Cleveland Browns QB

It isn't getting any better for Brandon Weeden, especially after he launched this pass last week against the Lions: The Cleveland Browns were having a bit of a renaissance when Brian Hoyer took over, but the offense is inept, once again, now that Weeden is back in a starting role. The team is back in the Tanking for Teddy sweepstakes, but one fan in the Cleveland area is willing...

No QB change coming for the Browns

Browns QB Brandon Weeden hasn’t been playing high level football. He may have had the ugliest interception of the season when he tried to backhand a pass against Detroit that eventually resulted in a TD. That was one of two interceptions on the day for Weeden. Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that that doesn’t open the door for backup Jason Campbell. Chudzinski...

Cleveland Browns Week Six: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. Rather than a tale of two cities, last Sunday’s Browns game could be described as a tale of two halves culminating in a disappointing loss to the Detroit Lions by a score of 31-17 in front of 70,000-plus at First Energy Stadium. Currently tied for second place in the AFC North, the Cleveland Browns (3-3) missed a chance to tie...

Frustrated Browns fan lists QB job on Craigslist

A disgruntled Clevland Browns fan recently posted a job on Craigslist: for a new starting QB. Via ESPN: Have you played pro football?" asks the ad that 22-year-old Seth Pae, a graduate student at DePaul, took credit for posting. "College ball? High school? Pee-wee? "Have you played Madden before? Do you know some of the rules of football? If yes, keep...

A Tale of Two Halves: Cleveland Browns Second Half Struggles are Troubling

Despite a 3-3 record, it can be said that the Cleveland Browns have been frustrating to watch so far this season, even in victory. You can point to a lot of little things that contribute to these frustrations in every game – interceptions, dropped passes, lack of a running game, poor blocking–the list can go on and on. Looking at it in a bigger picture however the answer is simple...

This Cleveland Browns Fan Just Won Tailgating

Billiards! At a tailgate! How exciting! Seriously, who in their right mind would actually want to play pool at a tailgat…

New Browns WR Charles Johnson has torn ACL

getty images The Cleveland Browns recently signed wide receiver Charles Johnson off the Green Bay Packers practice squad but that does not mean that he will see the field this season. Johnson was found to have a torn ACL during an intro physical. He will be placed on the reserve/non-football injury list. The seventh-round rookie sprained his MCL in June.
