Browns Are Charging Kids $1500 For Throwing Session With Brian Hoyer

These $1500 better include a couple of games and perhaps 3 jerseys. This sort of news is outrageous. And not to offend Brian Hoyer, I would rather have a throwing session with a few other quarterbacks. Besides, there should be no charge. Where’s the idea of giving back to the community? Here are the details. “A cool $1,510 got two brothers an hourlong throwing session with Cleveland...

Was the Cleveland Browns Week 9 tilt announced as a top game to watch?

The leaves are turning. Halloween decorations are up throughout the neighborhood. And the days are getting shorter and shorter. What do those things signal? Football games are getting more and more important. This week certainly backs up that notion, as the NFL’s slate of games features plenty of match-ups with playoff implications. That may sound nutty in Week 9, but that’s...

Is Johnny Football Over Before it Even Began?

Johnny Manziel was selected by the Cleveland Browns with the 22nd overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.

Mike Pettine says he ‘can sense’ Johnny Manziel’s frustration

When the Cleveland Browns drafted Johnny Manziel with the 22nd overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, the prevailing wisdom was that the team would slowly bring him along through OTAs and training camps, but sooner rather than later, Manziel would overtake incumbent starting quarterback Brian Hoyer and seize the reigns of the franchise and...Read More The post Mike Pettine says he...

The State of The Browns: Midseason Report

Offensive MVP: Joe ThomasWithout a doubt, the most consistently great player on the Browns offense has been Joe Thomas. Since breaking into the league in 2007, Joe Thomas has never missed a snap. He has never suffered a major injury (knock on wood), and has been a brick wall offensively. This season is no different. The Browns offensive line was one of the best in the league until...

Johnny Manziel can’t pronounce “playoff” in funny new commercial

Johnny Manziel’s appearances in the “Heisman House” commercials have been pretty fun this year. This appearance might be his best yet though. Johnny Manziel is in the classroom and is having difficulties coming to grips with the pronunciation of the word “playoff.” Not to hyper-analyze a short TV spot, but it’s no surprise that Johnny Manziel is so marketable. Manziel...

Cleveland Browns: Increased Reps for Terrance West Could Jump Start Stagnant Running Game

In the second meeting with the Pittsburgh Steelers, third-round rookie running back, Terrance West, was a surprise inactive in the Cleveland Browns 31-10 drubbing of their division rivals.
