Waiting For Next Year:
On Tuesday, Tony Grossi claimed Browns President Mike Holmgren “did the absolute minimum” while he was in charge in Cleveland.
Today, Grossi is back on the attack-
“Here’s a suggestion for a smart thing to happen: Immediately revoke Holmgren’s office, his lunch ticket and his parking space. His unforgivingly condescending farewell press conference, at which he blatantly flaunted his personally lucrative tenure as Lerner’s no-account surrogate, probably cost Haslam a few more season-ticket renewals from Browns fans scratching to pay for boring football, out-dated music, cell-phone usage shutdown during games, and price-gouged beverages and parking.
Not only did Holmgren not apologize to Browns fans for his abhorrent work ethic, he shamefully invoked his wife’s bout with breast cancer (in 2001) as justification for keeping banker’s hours as president and de facto owner of a billion-dollar enterprise and Cleveland civic asset.
And he had the gall to lecture the media for being negative? Who preps him for these things?”
So don’t hold back Tony. Tell us how you really feel…

Trent Richardson the Browns number one pick who is suffering a painful rib cage injury was still on the Browns practice field in Berea yesterday. This is just another case of a rookie being mis-managed by head coach Pat Shurmur. The Browns head coach knows better than to risk a player’s health, he is not using common sense. The Browns witnessed Richardson only rush for 8 yards...
The Browns are the worst team in the league and probably have the least amount of talent on either side of the ball.
Here's a look at their remaining schedule, predictions and a look at their division.

With the departure of Holmgren as the Browns failed team president it would be nice to know what advice he has for head coach Pat Shurmur. The words that should be coming out of Holmgren’s mouth would be telling Shumur the charade is coming to an end. People that know your reputation have taken control of the team and I can no longer cover up your lack of head coaching experience...
When Mike Holmgren agreed to become the President of the Cleveland Browns back in 2010, he called the endeavor his "last great adventure." Two years later and an earlier than anticipated exit on the horizon -- thanks to new Browns owner Jimmy Haslam -- Holmgren may have one more adventure in him after all.Holmgren, who was the head coach in Green Bay and Seattle for a combined...
It’s that time of week again. Last week we had over 250 people weigh in and we’ve had about that pretty much every week. I think it only gets more and more interesting to see how Browns fans react to maybe the most inconsistent team we’ve seen since 1999. I know that’s saying a lot, but it seems to me the sense of disappointment over this team right now reflects an optimism...
While I have not seen official reports from the Browns or any television networks, I have received word from someone close to the situation that the Browns will soon be starring in what is described as a "Hard Knocks Type" reality series.
The special is rumored to be airing on the Travel Channel and filming is scheduled to start next week. From what I understand, it will...
Cleveland Browns running back Trent Richardson appears on schedule to play to play Sunday against San Diego, though head coach Pat Shurmur refused to make any promises. "I think today was his third good day of practice," Shurmur told reporters Friday. "He's better this Friday than he was last. I can't tell you exactly what's going to happen Sunday, but...

The Cleveland Browns officially belong to Jimmy Haslam.
His $1.05 billion purchase of the NFL franchise from Randy Lerner was closed Thursday, just nine days after the sale was approved by the league's owners. Haslam now owns 70 percent of the team, and the truck stop magnate will get the other 30 percent from Lerner in four years.
Haslam watched practice and spent several...
The guys at GV Art and Design are at it again. This time they have teamed up with former Brown Eric Metcalf on a really cool design.
The former Texas Longhorn spent six seasons with the Browns. There are likely two things you remember about Metcalf. One is former coach Bill Belichick running the diminutive back into the middle of the line, and the most important is the two punt return...
San Diego Chargers (3-3) at Cleveland Browns (1-6) I normally hate taking teams that are heavily publicly backed, but that’s exactly what I’m doing by taking the Chargers this week. I’m also taking a West Coast team on the road in the Eastern Time Zone at 1 PM, a situation that is normally bad for [...]
