Joe Thomas among three Browns on Pro Football Focus' top 101 players

Three Browns players earned spots in Pro Football Focus' top 101 players for 2014.  While other similar lists sometimes devolve into popularity contests, Pro Football Focus only goes by what it sees on tape during the 2014 season. Joe Thomas was ranked the highest at No. 20 with positive grades in all but three games. Thomas was the third-highest offensive tackle behind Philadelphia...

Is Joe Thomas one of the best all around players in the NFL?

Joe Thomas is easily one of the best, if not the best left tackle in the game today. He has been to eight Pro Bowls and been named a first-team All Pro five times. In 2013 and 2014 he accomplished both of those tasks. Left tackle could arguably be considered a top position in the NFL and long-time veterans at that position are tough to come by. Fortunately for the Cleveland Browns...

Cleveland Browns rookie already seen as one of the best in the NFL

With an offensive line that already included LT Joe Thomas and C Alex Mack, who by the way have combined for 10 Pro Bowl appearances, the Browns proceeded to draft a kid out of Nevada in the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft. I’d say the Browns couldn’t be any happier with their choice at this point. Last season Joel Bitonio started at left guard in all 16 games for the Browns...

Joe Thomas single-handedly pumped up the Cavs crowd last night (video)

Last night the Cleveland Cavaliers took on the Chicago Bulls in a pivotal Game 5 and luckily for Lebron James and company, Browns offensive tackle Joe Thomas was on-hand to fire up the crowd.

Watch Joe Thomas lose it pumping up the Cavs crowd

Joe Thomas is the best. He’s easily the best Cleveland Browns player since 1999. After last night’s Game 5 win in the Eastern Conference Semifinals he might be the best Browns cheerleader too. Sorry, Joe Haden. Your attendance record at Cavs games is unmatched among your fellow Browns players, but until such time as you convulse into a microphone while swinging a towel with enough...
