Cleveland Browns: Connor Shaw may start

The Cleveland Browns are doomed to always be in the midst of a quarterback controversy.  By selecting Johnny Manziel 22nd overall in the 2014 NFL draft, the Browns welcomed their biggest quarterback controversy yet.  By the end of the 2014 season, with six quarters of meaningful play time, Manziel will be forced to watch the season finale against the Ravens from the sidelines....

In-Depth Takeaways from Browns' Fourth Consecutive Loss

That wasn’t as bad as last week, but it was still bad. The Cleveland Browns didn’t lose 30-0, but there wasn’t really a point in Sunday’s game against the Carolina Panthers that I felt good about their chances to win. Johnny Manziel left early in the game with a hamstring injury, and Brian Hoyer replaced him. Once again, though, this game was about the defense’s inability...

Certain stars must step up for their respective teams this weekend. And they have the favorable matchups to do just that.

The immediate solution for adjusting the next week would be...

Predicting the Outcomes of the Browns Final Three Games

Cleveland Browns: Johnny Football to start against Bengals

The Cleveland Browns have finally given the nod to Johnny Manziel as their starting quarterback.  Manziel won the job less than Brian Hoyer lost it.  Hoyer has led the Browns to only one touchdown in his last 29 drives.  He’s thrown at least two picks each of the last three weeks.  The Cleveland native had a strong start to the season, but the offense has been reeling the last...

Josh Gordon: ‘I’ve got a long way to go’ in Browns’ O

The Cleveland Browns offense has struggled over the past two weeks despite the return of All Pro receiver Josh Gordon. Part of the reason for the team’s struggles is Brian Hoyer, but another key factor is the lack of chemistry between Hoyer and Gordon. Miscommunication between the two led to a costly interception last week and the wide receiver took the blame. “I was supposed...

2014 Week 14: Browns Fantasy Preview vs. Colts

A week after having so much optimism about the Cleveland Browns offense for fantasy purposes, Sunday’s loss to the Buffalo Bills couldn’t have gone much worse. Josh Gordon was merely OK given his average fantasy output, Brian Hoyer was benched toward the end of the game, and both running backs literally did nothing. So where do we go from here?

It’s the moment all Browns fans have (kind of) been waiting for. Johnny Manziel took his first real NFL snaps on Sunday, but it certainly wasn’t for a great reason.

They are 16th in PPG and 8th in points allowed. Brain Hoyer is completing just 55% of his passes...
