Found January 22, 2012 on Waiting For Next Year:
While We’re Waiting serves as the early morning gathering of WFNY-esque information for your viewing pleasure. Have something you think we should see? Send it to our tips email at With the 4th Pick, Mel Kiper says Browns take Robert Griffin III: “If a team moves ahead of the Browns for Griffin, they also could be in play for Blackmon, or even the guy I have at No. 5, Trent Richardson. However, the questions on Colt McCoy’s ceiling as a starting NFL quarterback are getting louder, and if the Browns don’t go after a solution such asMatt Flynn, a quarterback certainly could be in play here. Griffin made big strides this past season, particularly with his deep accuracy. He is a big-time athlete at the quarterback position but has developed a very good pocket presence and the ability to read the game, and his big arm comes with a nice touch on intermediate throws. He is a leader and has intangibles that should really impress evaluators during the draft proces...

Conference Championship Frowndup: Back to That Alex Smith/Colt McCoy Thing

The Niners were 0 for 12 on third down yesterday (technically 1 for 13, but the one conversion came on a meaningless short throw on the last play of regulation). Their wide receivers made one catch for three yards on nine targets. On any of their last four drives a field goal would have sent them to the Super Bowl, yet they moved the ball a total of -7, 0, 2 and 9 yards respectively...

The Remote Report: The Cleveland Browns Defense (A Report Card)

The regular season is over, which traditionally means that nothing really matters for the Cleveland Browns until April. It’s a time of reflection, as well as watching competent teams that make us jealous. I’m not a teacher, so my report card doesn’t get marked up with grades based on how the Browns performed this season. If it did, I would be the teacher of a very strange...

Browns Hire Defensive Backs Coach Tim Hauck

Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal was first to report that the Cleveland Browns have hired Tim Hauck as their defensive backs coach.  The Browns were left without a DB coach when Jerome Henderson bolted for Dallas a couple weeks ago.  Henderson was one of the few Mangini assistants to be retained after Shurmur was brought on as head coach. Hauck is a former NFL player and...

Browns hire new secondary coach

The Cleveland Browns have hired Tim Hauck to coach their defensive backs. Hauck served as Tennessee's secondary coach the past two seasons. He's replacing Jerome Henderson, who left Cleveland earlier this month after three seasons to coach Dallas' defensive backs. Hauck played 13 seasons in the NFL with New England, Green Bay, Denver, Seattle, Indianapolis, Philadelphia...

Holmgren An Excellent Coach, But...........

Mike Holmgren the head coach was nothing but a winner. He long-term success on the sideline was with two specific QB's under center, while his history in the front office is questionable at best.

Cleveland Browns hire former Titans assistant Tim Hauck as DBs coach

Mike Sherman should be Browns' offensive coordinator - Comment of the Day

"Sherman can develop the WC Offense here and bring along a young QB. If Shurmur doesn't grow into the head coaching job in the next year or two, Sherman can be elevated to head coach and Cromwell can take over as OC." - jdunne

Cleveland Browns P.M. links: Trading up in the draft runs contrary to GM Tom Heckert's usual approach

Heckert likes to have as many picks as he can accumulate. Links to more Browns stories.

In depth: Cleveland Browns

It’s been nearly 30 years since the Cleveland Browns were playoff contenders on a regular basis and now a decade since the last postseason appearance. But the new Cleveland Browns might not be that far from a return to relevance. The defense stepped it up big time in 2011. And despite a 4-12 record, the team was in a majority of its games until the very end. They need a dramatic...

NFL Playoffs Teach Us that Building Teams is Hard Work

Every week of the Browns season we do the (sometimes comical) “Browns will win if…” articles here on WFNY.  Usually it was something about Peyton Hillis being healthy, Colt McCoy finding some rhythm with his receivers, Phil Taylor and Ahtyba Rubin stopping the run, or Phil Dawson hitting eleventeen field goals as the keys to victory.  It was always interesting to see how...
