Who fell into each...

Browns lose chess match to Ravens 23-21

The Cleveland Browns lost the chess match. With the ball deep in their own territory, they punted it back to the Ravens with about two minutes to go in the game and an impossibly small one-point lead 21-20. It left the Ravens with plenty of time and only about 20 yards to get a game-winning field goal attempt. The Ravens had no timeouts left, and the Browns only had one. As the Ravens...

Five things we learned from the Browns’ first preseason game

Billy Cundiff is in midseason form If this season is like many others in the past, the kicker position may just be the most lethal scoring threat on the roster.

Team Needs – K/P: Undrafted free agents are the way to go

The Browns are likely to be a team on the rise next season, but, barring changes, Cleveland’s kicking game won’t be helping the resurgence. Billy Cundiff was very inconsistent last season.

Phil Dawson – Cleveland Browns fans miss you now more than ever

The Pat Shurmur coaching staff/Mike Holmgren front office combination that Cleveland Browns fans endured for the past two seasons was an unequivocal disaster. Most of the regimes in the franchise’s expansion era (since 1999) also fit this bill perfectly.
