The Cleveland Browns have even more reason to feel good about this off-season.

The Cleveland Browns had an excellent free agency period with 9 new players signed, upgrading many areas of concern on the team in the process. They will be looking to replicate that success in the upcoming NFL draft too, when with 10 picks, they will be addressing the few remaining positions of need, while adding significant depth to the roster. Like a lot of fans, I have been going...

Mailbag: Cleveland could make a run for the AFC North title

So, Alex Mack remains a Brown! That’s great for now, but has any damage been done to the Mack/Cleveland relationship? -Kevin in Cleveland I honestly don’t think that there are any hostile feelings when it comes to Alex Mack and the Cleveland Browns, and I think that he’s genuinely OK with being back in Cleveland. If relations between him and the team had been damaged to such...

Browns ink fullback Chris Pressley

The Cleveland Browns are determined to find a running game in 2014. After three years of struggles on the ground, the Browns are looking up in the backfield. Cleveland took a major step by bringing in run-heavy offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan to call plays.

Draft over, Bengals running game now facing reality

CINCINNATI The NFL Draft excites everyone with the possibilities new players bring. Its also a reality check. New players coming in mean older players must go. Not everyone gets to stay at the party.

Focus On: Running Backs

This is a position that must be addressed high in the draft. Excessive pressure is being put on Andy Dalton because the running game is often stagnant. The Bengals looked their best in the 3-games stretch where BJGE had consecutive 100-yard games. That needs to be the rule, not the noteworthy occurrence.

Five Keys: Week Four Postmortem

Sunday’s win in Jacksonville was the most convincing yet for the Bengals, and to me it showed a great deal of growth for the club.  Despite being down four cornerbacks and facing perhaps the best running back in football, the Bengals completely shut down the Jaguars in Jacksonville.  3-1 sure feels good. Let’s see how the Bengals did with the five keys this week: 1.  Stop...

Who Makes The Cut? RB Edition

The strength of the running game last year just was not there. Part of that had to do with the O-line. The Bengals could not run right if Bobbie Williams was not playing.
