Welcome to the latest edition of X’s and O’s with the Bros by X’s and O’s editor @rodofdisaster. This feature represents a basic attempt to look deeper into the game of football, learn something about the X’s and O’s that make it go, and better appreciate the games within the game. It’s called “X’s and O’s with the Bros: because you don’t have to be a player, coach, or rocket surgeon to get something out of taking a closer look at a football play, so please enjoy the post and the discussion in the comments. This week Rod focuses on a number of problems with Brandon Weeden’s play last Sunday in a loss to the Ravens. ————— Suffice to say at the season’s half-way point that fans of the Colts, Redskins, Seahawks, Dolphins or Browns expect their respective rookie signal-callers to be better today than nine weeks ago, whether or not it’s become obvious that their team will be set at quarterback for the foreseeable future. Unfortunately for Browns fans, they have more to worry

Shurmur talks about improving communications

Browns head coach Pat Shurmur, from yesterday’s session with the media- I can’t tell you exactly. I know exactly why.

There were a couple times yesterday that didn’t get done. I’m absolutely...

Browns to be featured in Travel Channel series

As it is, the Browns are hardly must-see television; quite the opposite, in fact. But that stands to change, thanks to the influence of new ownership. According to the Cleveland Plain-Dealer, Dee Haslam, wife of owner Jimmy Haslam, is teaming up her production company RIVR Media with NFL Films to bring a Browns-centric documentary series to Travel Channel.

Trent Richardson says he’s going to be a different player when he’s healthy

Cleveland Browns running back Trent Richardson can’t wait until he’s finally healthy so everyone can really see what he can do. “I haven’t been at 100 percent yet, so I’m waiting for that moment,” said Richardson, who missed pretty much missed training camp after recovering from a knee scope. “Whenever my ribs do heal, it’s going to make a big difference having this...

Trent Richardson: Browns can write their own story over last seven weeks

[The goal is] to win. If it’s a 100-yard game, it’s a 100-yard game. If it’s a 50-yard game, it’s a 50-yard game.

Cleveland Browns: Week 10 NFL Power Rankings (#28)

Banner talks about initial stadium improvements

Joe Banner is talking. This time, Banner sat down with Nate Ulrich for a Q&A about a variety of topics. Like Scott Petrak’s article this morning, it is must-read stuff for Browns fans.

First and Ten: Building and pain, again

1) Its always interesting to sit back and watch firing season. Guy loses, everyone cries for him to be fired. Guy loses two, more guys call for firings. Now, 19 losses in 24 games is a lot of losses and does not burnish the resume. And there have been some very shaky decisions on the sidelines for the 2012 Cleveland Browns, but some of them are shaky simply because they did not work...

A mass of contradictions

BEREA -- Compare the feelings about the Cleveland Browns from Monday to Monday. A week ago there were positives and smiles after the Browns beat a woeful San Diego team on an afternoon when the Browns punted nine times.
