Surprises hatched in the huddle

What’s so important about those play calls? Back in the late 1960s the Cleveland Browns, with Bill Nelsen at quarterback, were in a big game and had the ball on the opponent’s eight-yard line. It was goal-to-go. Big game, because the Browns, after winning the championship in 1964, actually had contending teams from 1965-72 and reached the playoffs in six of those years. In those...

Pic: Bernie Kosar’s first start with the Browns was 30 years ago

As we ready ourselves for another Cleveland Browns football season, it was interesting to see a picture that Darren Rovell of ESPN posted to Twitter. Rovell incorrectly states that it was 30 years ago “today” that Bernie Kosar started for the Browns, but it’s close enough for rock ‘n roll, as they say. Bernie started his first game for the Browns on October 13, 1985. The...

Jessica Eye wants to finish what LeBron James and Bernie Kosar started

When LeBron James opted out of his contract in Miami and decided to return to play for his hometown Cavaliers again, the city of Cleveland thought their 50-plus year championship drought was finally going to come to an end. But as players started dropping like flies throughout the regular and post season and James was left alone with very little support around him, the Cavaliers...

A few throwback Browns posters to get you through the NFL offseason

The Cavs are in the NBA Finals and the Indians are surging, but Cleveland is a long way from being anything but a football town. We love our Browns despite years of losing records and front office turmoil. We hold fast to memories of Municipal Stadium and the original Dawg Pound. We fondly remember the teams led by Bernie Kosar and Brian Sipe and, before them, Frank Ryan and Otto...

What does it mean to “Play like a Brown?”

“Play like a Brown.” What does that mean? Is it simply the same catchphrase found in other NFL cities with interchangeable mascot names? To play like a Brown would seem to imply a proud tradition, perhaps longstanding, of winning, of a certain style of play with a high level of professionalism, dedication and expectation. It implies there exists a team identity. Most informed...

Bernie Kosar Built An Igloo This Week

  Need more proof that Bernie Kosar, 51, is feeling pretty good these days? The former Browns gunslinger built himself an igloo this week, which is pretty impressive for a guy who has suffered from a variety of injuries over the years that have slowed him. You might remember way back in 2013 when Bernie blamed bad knees and ankle surgeries for not being able to perform field sobriety...

Watch Eric Metcalf beat the Steelers with two punt return TDs

A blast from the past, it feels like I’ve probably even posted this before, but I don’t care. Back on October 24, 1993 Eric Metcalf returned two punts for touchdowns against the hated Pittsburgh Steelers. The Browns finished that season 7-9, but they won that game 28-23. And Metcalf’s 75-yard return for a TD was the game-winning score. The Browns trailed 23-21 at the time...

Sometimes it’s great to go into the wayback machine that is YouTube for amazing moments in Browns history.

Quarterfinals: Vote for the Sunshine State's greatest college quarterback

Who is the best quarterback to ever play for a Florida university? Well, we know who's not.
