Is the argument against Modell more about Art himself or about the Hall of Fame itself?
Ozzie Newsome’s guest column in the Plain Dealer
The perspective from neutral observers on this subject
Is there any real chance Modell actually gets in?
Much much more…

The Cleveland Browns were hoping to have the same results other NFL teams with their rookie quarterback selection of Brandon Weeden. It’s safe to say things didn’t go as planned.
Weeden struggled in the West Coast offense, throwing more interceptions than touchdowns.
His play has left many questioning the selection in the first round.
In his first game, Weeden had a 5.1 passer...
A pair of Cleveland Browns offensive linemen will reportedly receive a slightly bigger payday in 2013 after hitting incentives that were a part of their original rookie contracts with the team.

There's a big change coming for the Cleveland Browns defense, and linebacker Scott Fujita thinks he and his teammates can successfully make the transition from 4-3 to 3-4.
"Sometimes people can get too wrapped up in the 3-4, 4-3 conversation," Fujita said, via the Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer.
"To me it's about trying to find a system that...
John Harbaugh said at the Super Bowl on Thursday that he hopes folks find it in their hearts to vote Art Modell into the Pro Football Hall of Fame during Saturday mornings vote.
Dont expect many hearts in Cleveland to feel that way.
And if Modells name is announced Saturday night, dont expect many hearts to accept it with a shrug, or without angry protest.
Feelings in Cleveland...
Cleveland Browns owner Jimmy Haslam told the Plain-Dealer that quarterback Brandon Weeden will have some competition going into next season.
“I think Norv and Chud have been very open that they like a lot of what Brandon (Weeden) does, but we’re going to have competition at that position, and I think competition makes us all better and we’ll see where that competition comes...
Cleveland Browns owner Jimmy Haslam said today that his team will not only bring in a new quarterback this offseason, but whomever they sign will compete with Brandon Weeden for the starting job.
“I think [Norv Turner] and [Rob Chudzinski] have been very open that they like a lot of what Brandon [Weeden] does,” said Haslam, ”but we’re going to have competition at that position...
The possible election of late Cleveland and Baltimore owner Art Modell to the Pro Football Hall of Fame has Browns fans on edge.
Modell is one of 15 finalists up for consideration on Saturday in New Orleans by a selection committee which will select between four and seven new members to be enshrined in Canton, Ohio, this summer. Coach Bill Parcells, former 49ers owner Eddie DeBartolo...
There’s not one topic I feel like talking about today as we endure a week of Super Bowl and Hall of Fame propoganda. The Browns introduced their defensive coordinator Ray Horton yesterday, but even that was putting a cap on old news. With that in mind, I thought I would just combine a bunch of things into one post today…
Alex Smith to the Browns?
So Brandon Weeden thought he...
Cleveland Browns owner Jimmy Haslam says there will be competition at the quarterback position this offseason.
“You know, I think Norv (Turner) and Chud (Rob Chudzinski) have been very open that they like a lot about what Brandon (Weeden) does, but we’re gonna have competition at that position,” said Haslam, per Tony Grossi of ESPN Cleveland. “I think competition makes...
