Browns sticking with Brian Hoyer at QB

The Cleveland Browns are not quite ready to turn to Johnny Manziel as their quarterback. Instead the Browns will stick with Brian Hoyer as they exit their bye week. The Browns are 1-2 this season with Hoyer under center and given what the veteran has to work with his completion percentage of 64.2 and 7.53 YPA are more than anyone could have hoped for. Hoyer has thrown three...

Cleveland Browns 2014 will be fine, but these 10 teams should just throw in the towel

Three games is enough. It might seem like too small of a sample size, but it’s not; accurate judgments can be made just three weeks into the NFL season. Some teams have proven to be contenders, while others have already shown to be pretenders. And there are about a dozen teams trying to decide which category they belong in. The first group is pretty easy to determine; it’s the...

Why Can’t Brian Hoyer Be the Cleveland Browns’ Answer at Quarterback?

Following the Cleveland Browns ‘shock’ win over New Orleans last weekend, head coach Mike Pettine was asked about quarterback Brian Hoyer’s poise. His response was certainly one to frame and put on the wall. “I’m developing an affinity for winning, and he’s a big part of it.” After the heartbreaking loss to the Baltimore Ravens […] The post Why Can’t Brian Hoyer...

Cleveland Browns: Bye week concerns

This may be a new Cleveland Browns team, but the result against the Baltimore Ravens was the same.  The 2013 Super Bowl Champions defeated their AFC North rivals 23-21 in Week 3.  The Browns have been the focus of increased media attention due to the addition of Johnny Manziel, but life isn’t too great in Cleveland yet.  The Browns have a bye in Week 4.  Here’s a look at...

The Worst Play in Football

If there was ever a day for the Browns to have beaten the Ravens, a franchise that’s been running on reputation and fumes in the post-Ray Lewis era, and one that came to town yesterday with the Ray Rice domestic violence cover-up having just been exposed as an historically spectacular microcosm of everything that’s wrong with everything on planet earth (or at least at the...

Week 3 Winners and Losers

On Football Night in America this past Sunday evening, long-time head coach Tony Dungy and former concussion hander-outer Rodney Harrison briefly discussed their belief in moral victories. No one smiled bigger than those Cleveland Browns fans who wish to tout the team “up and coming” or “on the rise” as they enter their bye week with a record of 1-2. After another soul-crushing...

Ravens survive a costly win over Browns, 23-21…

Perfect weather conditions in Cleveland this time of year— sunny, 70 degrees F., maybe just a little breezy— but the friendly climate did not influence the physical nature of this game. To say it was “physical” is an understatement. Losing TE Dennis Pitta for the game, the season and possibly the rest of his career was a high price to pay for this win. To be accurate, Pitta...

Growing pains: The Browns just aren't good enough. Yet.

CLEVELAND - After a fourth-quarter freezeup and another failure to seize the moment and deliver a big-stage win Sunday, the Cleveland Browns feel awful. These Browns are not awful. That's hard to process and means little right now, sure, because this is a big boy's league and teams are exactly what their records say they are. So the Browns are 1-2, flawed and frustrated after...

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...

Watch Johnny Manziel haul in a pass

The set-up was perfect. Johnny Manziel comes in as quarterback for a play, and hands it off for little-to-no gain. Fans were left asking “that’s it?” and the (league best) Cleveland Browns offense said “oh—just wait.” Starting quarterback Brian Hoyer comes back in with Manziel running off. The rookie and offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan go toe-to-toe with dueling looks...

WATCH: Johnny Manziel has trick-play catch called back

It’s Johnny Manziel like you’ve never seen him before. With Brian Hoyer still holding down the starting job under center, the Cleveland Browns opted Sunday to line Manziel up at wide receiver for one play. The gimmick fooled the Baltimore Ravens, and Hoyer was able to hit his backup for a big gain down the sideline. Unfortunately for the Browns, a penalty nullified the play...

Browns trail Ravens 10-7 at the half

The Cleveland Browns put together an impressive 80-yard drive to take a 7-3 lead, but ended up giving up a nearly identical one to trail at the half 10-7. The Ravens had no issues running the ball against the Browns, but it was a blown coverage by Barkevious Mingo that allowed fullback Kyle Juszczyk to catch a 9-yard TD from Joe Flacco. It was an uneven half for both teams and as...

In typical Cleveland fashion the football gods took Brian Hoyer rom the fans with a season ending injury.But in spite of the team...

Their third down conversion rate isn’t that great, but they seem to convert at the most opportunistic times.Cassel hasn’t been anything...

Where’s Johnny?

In light of Brian Hoyer leading the Browns’ game-winning drive and Johnny Manziel’s three plays leaving us with a very “…that’s it?” feeling, it would be easy to assume that the Johnny Football attention train is losing steam.  Hoyer is the starter, the Browns’ D is playing well, and Mike Pettine is the coach we’ve been looking for.  It’s easy to forget about...
