The nine dumbest quotes from the Cleveland Browns dating back to 1999

From bottom to top, we will unravel the Browns most puzzling and just plain dumb statements. Beginning with No.9… 9. “It seems as though it’s business as usual, which is very easy to write and say. But I’m telling you, it is not. And you can choose to believe me or you can say, ‘Nah, I’ve heard it before.’ That’s your choice. But when it does happen, don’t come...

Cory’s Corner: Mike Holmgren was a better coach than Mike McCarthy

When it comes to coaching, the Green Bay Packers have been more than blessed. The name of the NFL’s top prize was an iconic Packers head coach. And before Vince Lombardi, there was a guy named Curly Lambeau who not only coached consistent winners but was one of the brainstormers that brought pro football to Green Bay. That’s why those two guys have statues in front of Lambeau...

Mike Holmgren confirms Oakland visit… on Seattle radio

When I wrote up the rumors regarding Mike Holmgren potentially coaching the Oakland Raiders, I joked about finding out more on Seattle radio. Apparently, it wasn’t a joke as Mike Holmgren actually did just that. “Yeah, I did go down there,” Holmgren told Mitch Levy. “A couple of years ago, I had met with [owner] Mark [Davis] about possibly working with the Raiders, and it...

Is Mike Holmgren a candidate to coach the Raiders?

Mike Holmgren’s name is apparently in the mix with the Oakland Raiders, according to Pro Football Talk. Strong and persistent chatter has emerged in recent days linking Holmgren to the job.

Mike Holmgren linked to Raiders coaching job

According to Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio, former Green Bay Packers and Seattle Seahawks head coach Mike Holmgren was at the Oakland Raiders facility last week.  It remains to be seen exactly what this might mean, but the idea of general manager Reggie McKenzie bringing in someone he worked with in the past in Green Bay could make some sense. As Florio stated, Holmgren wouldn’t...

The Folly of the Smartest Man in the Room – How Mike Holmgren Nearly Destroyed the Cleveland Browns

WRITTEN BY JOHN STEVENS Introduction I wasn’t alive for the kinds of things that built the Cleveland Curse, or those events that truly hardened Browns fans for things to come. Even for the Browns Relocation controversy, I was only 6 years old, and while I knew it was a truly terrible thing for the city,  more of that was borne from just being a confused child; I had no idea how...

Away from coaching, Holmgren in Seattle's corner

(Eds: Adds details, quotes. ) By TIM BOOTH AP Sports Writer Mike Holmgren is now one of the intruders. After so many seasons of trying to insulate his teams from the noise on the outside and shield players from nosey media, he now finds himself on the other side. He may be a coach with Hall of Fame credentials, but he's simply a fan, observer and part-time member of the media when...

Joe Banner, the 3-4 versus the 4-3 and agent Jimmy Sexton

One of the scariest things for Browns fans in the transition from Mike Holmgren to Joe Banner was Banner’s decision to switch defenses. It isn’t that Cleveland Browns fans have that much of a preference, other than they have a preference against switching schemes all the time. You know, continuity and all that? The Browns were a 3-4 defense with Romeo Crennel and Eric Mangini...
