The Cleveland Browns are constantly looking for “the answer” at quarterback, but it seems more and more that they’re asking the wrong question. The question they keep asking is how do you come up with Peyton Manning, Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers—hell, even Ben Roethlisberger or Joe Flacco? The Browns seem to operate as if they’re primary mission in life is to land some Holy...
CHARLOTTE -- As the Cleveland Browns season spins to another disappointing finish, the franchise's never-ending quarterback carousel spins again.
It's another year that feels like all the other years.
Rookie Johnny Manziel made his second start Sunday vs. the Carolina Panthers but didn't make it out of the first half. Manziel said he felt what he thought was a cramp while making...

As it turned...

So what's even more surprising than Cleveland's .500 record? The number of Browns players among the...
