WFNY’s State of the Browns: Cornerbacks

Browns training camp begins on Saturday and the excitement is starting to build. The Browns have made huge news on and off the field. The team had many holes to fill going into the offseason. One of the biggest flaws on the team was the cornerback position. They had a top corner in Joe Haden, but after him there was not much talent and depth in the group. Cornerbacks are a huge importance...

As Browns open mini-camp, which position group improved most this offseason?

I was asked by a friend the other day which position the Browns improved the most in the offseason. It was a good question, mostly because I believe the Browns improved in a couple spots that could be significant. The convenient answer (if not just the plain truth) is that we really can’t answer that until about game eight. However, I’m going to push the logical aside for the...

The Beginning of a Dominant Defense

The adage in the NFL has long been that “Defense Wins Championships.” For all of the Peyton Manning record-breaking seasons, the Seattle Seahawks proved this saying to true once again with their Super Bowl win last season. The Seahawks won with a dominating defense that stopped the high-powered, Manning-led Denver Broncos. It’s a copycat league and this model of defense appears...

Photos: EA Sports in town getting Browns players “In the game”

Long snapper Christian Yount and newly signed defensive back Isaiah Trufant took to social media after getting their faces digitized for the upcoming edition of the Madden franchise- Madden 2015. The guys seemed to have gotten more than just their mugs pixelated. It looks like there was a goodie bag for each as well. Figures. The guys who have the money to blow on video games get...

Three questions about the Browns off-season (so far)

The Browns seemed to be set to be one of the most active teams in free agency as the period began. They signed Karlos Dansby and Donte Whitner very quickly and were off to the races. They followed that up with an offer sheet to Andrew Hawkins, a smaller move on special teamer Isaiah Trufant before making another marginally big splash over the weekend with running back Ben Tate. As...

Jets’ Fake Punt Attempt Fails Miserably in Eventual Win Over Browns (Video)

The New York Jets’ entire season of ineptitude was summed up in one play Sunday afternoon. Facing a 4th-and-9 from near midfield on their first drive of the game against the Browns, the Jets attempted to catch Cleveland off guard with a fake punt. The idea worked in theory, as gunner Isaiah Trufant was wide open on the left side of the formation, but the safety Josh Bush‘s pass...

Five Atlanta Falcons who have impressed in 2013

The Atlanta Falcons recorded their third victory of the season on Sunday in a 34-31 overtime victory over the Buffalo Bills, an achievement that has sadly been celebrated more than a win over any Bills’ team should ever be. The 2013 season has been a bust for the Atlanta Falcons, who are now 3-9 and were the first team eliminated from playoff contention this season. Despite the...
