Cleveland Browns Week 6 Winners and Losers

Having spent a bunch of time with some extended family in the days leading up to Sunday afternoon, I received a slew of small talk inquiries—”So, whatcha think?” they would ask, the context being universally understood. Did I think the Cleveland Browns had a chance in their impending game against the Pittsburgh Steelers? Call me pessimistic, but I didn’t quite understand...

Week 5 Film Room: The Defense

The Cleveland Browns had another late-game comeback win this past Sunday versus the Tennessee Titans. It was a game of two halfs for the defense. Just like the opener against Pittsburgh, the Browns defense played horrible in the first half, but stood strong in the second half shutting out Charlie Whitehurst and the Titans. So what was the difference between the first half defense...

Browns secondary, Buster Skrine didn’t have a good day against Titans

The Cleveland Browns defensive secondary has struggled so far this season. Early on, I thought it had more to do with the pass rush not working and opposing quarterbacks having too much time. It also didn’t help that the first three quarterbacks the Browns faced this year — Roethlisberger, Flacco and Brees — are all guys who have won Super Bowls. Yet again though, on Sunday...

Cleveland Browns Week 5 Winners and Losers

Holy Crap. Like, seriously—Holy. Crap. This Cleveland Browns unit has been the tale of two halves all season long, but there has been nothing like what they did on Sunday. The first 24 minutes of football looked like some of the most embarrassing play the orange and brown have managed to muster in quite some time. The second 24, well, with many thanks to Charlie Whitehurst and...

Titans WR Justin Hunter leads receiving corp in snaps

Tennessee Titans second year WR Justin Hunter led the Titans wideouts by playing on 68-of-70 offensive snaps in Sunday’s loss to the Browns. Hunter had two nice plays in the game, on his touchdown burning Buster Skrine badly down the sideline from 75 yards away, and turning a short receiver screen into a 10-yard gain for a key first down. It was a promising effort for Hunter,...

WATCH: Tennessee Titans QB Jake Locker Nearly Takes a Browns' Butt to the Face

Whenever you have a quarterback return to the lineup after being out with an injury it is only natural that the defense is going to come after him with reckless abandon in hopes of rattling him in case he's not 100 percent healthy yet. So it should come as no surprise that the Cleveland Browns are really pressing Titans QB Jake Locker.However, what they are using to come after...

The Browns have some veteran confidence… Training Camp Notes 7.27.14

Sunday’s camp practice was kind of boring. I’ve been to enough of these now that I think I can get a sense of when the intensity is at a pitch and when it’s not. Maybe Day 1 was something of an energy dump, like a fighter who punches himself out in the first round and day two was a bit more relaxed, but the intensity just wasn’t totally there. It’s early though, so I...
