Cleveland Browns Week 3 Winners and Losers

When your team is to allegedly be built on defense and running the football, it would appear to be a poor business model when two of the three teams you’ve faced thus far are superior to you at both, and neither are in your division. When Chris Ivory and Latavius Murray—an undrafted free agent and a sixth-round draft selection, respectively—look like Gale Sayers and Adrian...

Monday Night Without Football: Taste of the Browns

I went into the 2015 Taste of the Browns event in either the best or worst possible condition, which is to say that I was hungry. I ate more like a bird than man in the hours that preceded Monday night’s event, with all the implications that means for one’s mood. I wondered: Would it be the sort of gala that makes one believe in good things like altruism and public service,...

Jets, Browns players get into scuffle (video)

It wasn’t a fight, but it sure was close. The New York Jets and Cleveland Browns are two physical, grind-it-out teams, so when they squared off on Sunday, it didn’t take long for fireworks to erupt. The Browns went to bat for their quarterback, when Josh McCown fumbled after trying to leap into the end zone. He took a big hit and ended up doing some sort of helicopter spin, and...

What CST thinks about the Browns 2015 season

6-10 Record, 4th in AFC NorthLast year I could not decide where to peg the Browns between 4 and 10 wins, I had no idea what the hell they'd look like, so they just looked like both a 10 win team (when they were 7-4, mostly with a healthy Alex Mack) and a 4 win team (after the first 11 games). The 12 stages of grief Browns fans went through in Manziel's first start will hopefully...

Danny Shelton ready to rumble in NFL debut

The Browns have cut Terrelle Pryor, traded Terrance West, and used a first-round pick on Alex Mack’s backup, Cameron Erving. Despite the transactions and/or missteps, there has been a sense of enthusiasm on the defensive side of the ball rare for a team that has struggled so spectacularly over the past 15 years. That enthusiasm comes from one very large individual: Danny Shelton...

The Browns shouldn’t be so bad this season

Let’s forget for a moment that the NFL is basically a five-month-long commercial for beer, pick-up trucks and the military-industrial complex, subsidized by taxpayers on the worst possible terms and powered by men willing to turn their brains into porridge on non-guaranteed contracts for the off-chance at dying with some money in the bank. Let’s also forget that hardly any of...

Cleveland Browns Offensive Lineman Alex Mack Wins the Big Man Kicking Contest

Contests are a natural part of training camp. It's one of the man reasons why teams hold camp. It's how you decide who gets to start and who gets to sit on the bench and watch. They are also a great way to add a little levity to the day to day grind--which is pretty much what happened when the Cleveland Browns held their Big Man Kicking Contest Thursday.There were several good attempts...

The Cleveland Browns are never short on question marks going into training camp, but at least one of those can be changed to a period.

Per ESPN’s Pat McManamon, head coach Mike Pettine said that Mack will be good to go when training camp...

Browns bringing out-of-box answers, not excuses in 2015

Everyone wants the Browns to play games in January.  This long offseason was filled with mantras like “stop the run”, “if they had a healthy Alex Mack”, or “fill in the blank” will be the key to success.  There’s no doubt the Browns rush defense was woeful last year, allowing the most rushing first downs […] The post Browns bringing out-of-box answers, not excuses...

Alex Mack, the Centerpiece to the Cleveland Browns Offense

Cleveland Browns Pro-Bowl center Alex Mack experienced something new in 2014 that he had yet to see in his NFL career – the Browns run an offensive play without him on the field. Mack missed his first professional football game, and the remainder of the season, after suffering a broken fibula in Week 6 against Pittsburgh. While Mack has been kept out of OTAs, he insists that he...

Since being drafted in the 2009 NFL Draft, by the Cleveland Browns, center Alex Mack has been nothing short of spectacular. He’s been named to two Pro Bowls, a second-team All-Pro and a part of the 2009 NFL All-Rookie Team. Which means that Mack has proven he belongs in this league and doesn’t shy away from the competition, but he does avoid a certain subject that he considers...
