Cleveland Browns vs Cincinnati Bengals September 16, 2012 Brian   Browns 28 Bengals 10 Last week I said it would be a few weeks until our rookie-led offense started clicking. After the 5.1 rating disaster last week, Weeden needs to pick it up quicker than that. A few more performances like that and there will be many people looking for a new job. Including Weeden. Tom  Bengals  24 Browns 14 The Browns offense is still absent, but a couple of long runs by Trent Richardson save the stat lines from last weekends debacle. Overall, these young Browns are still not up to competing with those in the division.

Shurmur on Sunday’s Game Against Buffalo: “We’ve Got to Win this Game”

Browns head coach Pat Shurmur was pretty blunt about the team’s upcoming game at home against the Bills- “We need to do what we can to win this football game against a team that is coming off a good victory.” When asked about possibly being 0-3 to start the season with the Ravens the following week, Shurmur said- “I wasn’t good in statistics at Michigan State, but we...

Trent Richardson Runs Wild vs. Bengals

Cleveland halfback Trent Richardson wasn't particularly impressive in his debut last Sunday versus Philadelphia but he looked terrific this week in a loss to the Bengals. He tallied 109 yards and contributed two touchdowns for the Browns, including one touchdown rushing and one receiving score.Fantasy Spin:Richardson had surgery on his knee just a little more than a month ago...

Vox Lox: Week Two

At some point over the summer, I seriously grappled with the prospect of a winless Browns season. I eventually talked myself out of it when it was time to turn in my official CST prediction, but that three-win-leap-of-faith has more to do with the NFL's competitive balance (Any Given Sunday is more than just a cliche and a kickass film; it's a fierce mantra that separates...

Mistakes hurt Browns in loss to Bengals

Browns coach Pat Shurmur and his staff spent the day talking to Cleveland's players about their mistakes in Sunday's loss at Cincinnati. There was plenty to discuss. Penalties, missed tackles - there were six on an 81-yard punt return for a score by Adam ''Pacman'' Jones - and blown coverages by their inexperienced secondary resulted in a 34-27 loss to the...

Maualuga, Richardson clear the air

CINCINNATI - Cincinnati Bengals middle linebacker Rey Maualuga said he and Cleveland Browns rookie running back Trent Richardson have no beef and that his comments last week about Richardson were taken out of context. Last week, Maualuga said Richardson "didn't do nothing spectacular" in Week One, when he rushed just 19 times for 39 yards in the Browns' narrow...

Browns’ Weeden, Richardson take first steps down the yellow brick road

Dorothy once found herself stranded in a new land with no family or friends. All she wanted to do was go home. But she didn’t know how to get there. She was shown a yellow brick road with the answer to her desire at the end of it. The only way to get home was to take that first step. Along the trip, she picked up life lessons and friends to help her get home.  The 2012 Cleveland...

Richardson and Weeden complete rare feat

Cleveland Browns 1st-round picks Trent Richardson and Brandon Weedenpulled off a rare feat for a pair of rookies on Sunday afternoon against the Bengals. Hopefully Weeden isn't the next Tony Banks They became the first pair of rookie teammates to throw for 300 yards and rush for 100 yards in the same game since 1996. The down side to this accomplishment? The previous duo doesn’t...

Browns Fall Short in 34-27 to Bengals

Cleveland Browns Find Positives In Loss Against Bengals

I was able to take in the Browns at Bengals game this afternoon from the 30-yard line at Paul Brown Stadium, and despite a tough division loss, the Browns looked better than I thought they would.Defensively, Cleveland took a step backwards, giving up 27 points (the other Bengals TD was a punt return).  This was to be expected with star cornerback Joe Haden out due to a suspension...

Cleveland Browns vs. Cincinnati Bengals: Hero and Zero of the Game

In a game that was supposed to be one of the more boring games in the NFL this week the clash of Ohio turned out to be a high scoring barn burner.  Both teams wanted to come out and show that last weeks performances were just anomalies and they could really play. In a game with many heroes and no zeros I thought we would do an ode to Hockey giving out the three stars of the game...

Jim Brown re-uniting with the Cleveland Browns this weekend

I know many in Cleveland are tired of hearing from Jim Brown because his truth isn’t always the easiest to hear whether he’s talking about Trent Richardson or Art Modell. Brown seemingly also didn’t appreciate Mike Holmgren’s version of the truth that he didn’t need Jim Brown in his larger adviser role that Randy Lerner had given him before “The Big Show” arrived. All...

Idle chatter: A pair of long seasons ahead?

1. That we keep using the word "historical" with the, um, achievements of the Browns offense can not be a good thing. How do the Browns go about getting it fixed? McManamon: Hope. Thats basically what the Browns are relying on at this point. Hope that Trent Richardson gets better quickly and revives the moribund running game. Hope that Brandon Weedens opener was just an...
