Despite rumors that Alabama head coach Nick Saban is considering a return to the NFL, one of his star pupils, Cleveland Browns running back Trent Richardson thinks he's staying put with the Crimson Tide. “I can’t see him coming to the NFL,” Richardson said, via Tom Reed of the Cleveland Plain-Dealer,. “I can see him staying at Alabama and retiring at Alabama. That’s what I can see.” Saban's last foray into the NFL ended in disaster when he abandoned the Miami Dolphins, where he was head coach from 2005-2006. After it surfaced that he might become the next Alabama head coach, he stated emphatically, "I will not be the next Alabama coach". Then he took the job, stiffing Miami and the NFL while taking a huge hit on his credibility. “The way he plans his game and the way they plan games is at the highest level at their level,” Trent said. “So why would you change for that?" "The way he lives his lifestyle down there, the way he loves football, he loves the intensity of football and every game counts because one game, you might just be out.”   Related articles Speculation again connects Nick Saban to the Browns (collegefootballtalk.nbcsports.com) Buying or Selling Nick Saban as Head Coach of the Cleveland Browns Next Year (bleacherreport.com) Alabama coach Nick Saban reveals details over departure from Miami Dolphins; admits he wanted Drew Brees; defends himself on Jeno James treatment (blogs.palmbeachpost.com)

A source told The Plain Dealer that McDaniels, who coached the Broncos in 2009, would jump at the chance to coach the Browns.

Browns vs. Broncos Reader’s Survey

The Browns weren’t going to be favored this week regardless of the outcome last week against the Redskins. After a three game winning streak ends and with two tough games and a presumably lame duck coach, will the wheels come off? Will this team continue to play hard to the final whistle this season? We’ll know soon enough, but I want to know what you think right now. Will Peyton...

Browns rumors still surfacing from Boston

Before proceeding, I would emphasize what follows is a rumor, and has not been confirmed. But it comes from the Boston Globe and its excellent NFL writer Greg Bedard. He was one of the first guys who reported that Joe Banner would hire Mike Lombardi as the teams new GM, after Banner let Tom Heckert go. Bedard attributed that report to two independent sources he calls influential...

On Brandon Weeden’s rookie season, and other Browns rookie records

Over the past two weeks (part 1 and part 2), my good friend and colleague Rick has posted updates on some historic NFL records being accomplished by the current trio of rookies on the Browns offense: QB Brandon Weeden, RB Trent Richardson and WR Josh Gordon. In his initial post, I helped to provide some of the backbone research. Yes, I never gave enough credit to Rick for his research...

Last week: 26 (+0) Record: 5-9 Net points per drive: -0.11 (20th) DVOA: -12.4% (25th) Weighted DVOA: -5.5% (19th) That 17 point loss to the Redskins was actually the first time this season the Browns had been blown out.

Another year for Weeden?

BEREA -- Nobody takes a beating faster or harder than a Cleveland Browns quarterback. In a town starved for wins and long-suffering because of losses (54 the past five years alone), a failure of a Browns quarterback draws condemnation faster than the Tasmaniam Devil spins. Brandon Weeden suffered that fate this week. He played the second-worst game of his career against Washington...
