Browns' Dansby: Changes were needed due to 'internal' struggle

Turns out all those rumors of a rift in the departed Cleveland Browns regime may not have been far off after all. Browns linebacker Karlos Dansby said an "internal struggle" that built up during the team's season-ending five-game losing streak in 2014 carried over and festered throughout 2015. Dansby believes it all started with an internal conflict over whether the team should...

Cleveland Browns defense shows youthful hope in disappointing season

The Cleveland Browns defense placed close to the bottom in most defensive rankings this season. The team bled yards and points (27 points per game) with an overpaid, old roster. It wasn’t just one position group either. All three levels showed ineptitude at one point this season. Defensive Line Desmond Bryant, Danny Shelton and Randy Starks combined for 105 tackles and 6...

Jim O’Neill continues delusion about Browns DBs

It’s never easy when you miss a talent like Joe Haden for the majority of a season. There’s no way for the Cleveland Browns to replace Joe Haden with available options on the roster. Still, coping takes on a variety of different looks and feels. Largely, the Cleveland Browns have opted for career special teamer Johnson Bademosi. None of this is to trash Johnson Bademosi, but...

The Cleveland Browns lose to Ravens as only the Browns know how

I’ve never been less excited for a Cleveland Browns primetime game. Judging from the wide shots of FirstEnergy Stadium, I wasn’t unique in this assessment of the potential entertainment value of the Monday night affair between the Browns and Ravens as numerous empty seats were visible. You would think I’d be more excited for the Browns to potentially win a game, what with...

Karlos Dansby doesn’t think Browns defense is too complicated

Complex is a relative term, so maybe that’s at the heart of the matter for the Browns’ defense in Berea today. Earlier in the day, Sports Illustrated published a story by Kevin Jones (who previously wrote for ClevelandBrowns.com) indicating that “a number of players” think Mike Pettine and Jim O’Neil’s defensive scheme is to blame for the success of opposing running...

How can we give Manziel the benefit of the doubt?

Cleveland Browns backup quarterback Johnny Manziel had managed to stay out of harsh spectrum of the public spotlight in 2015. Even when Josh McCown was injured, Manziel simply stepped in to help the Browns win before retreating back into the shadows as the backup quarterback. He and McCown have repeatedly said the correct things to the media about supporting each other and McCown...

It's not often that you pick off Peyton Manning three times and return one for a touchdown, but still lose. The Cleveland Browns managed to do that Sunday against the visiting Broncos, falling to 2-4 on the season. Denver was even able to overcome linebacker Barkevious Mingo's interception of Manning on the first series of overtime. Karlos Dansby had the other two interceptions...

Karlos Dansby: Giving up big plays 'not a trend' for Browns

The Browns defense was supposed to be the strength of the team, but they’ve been susceptible to the big play this year. In San Diego, the Browns gave up a 68-yarder to Dontrelle Inman, a 61-yarder to Danny Woodhead, a 31-yarder to Keenan Allen, and a 20-yarder to Malcolm Floyd. That was just the passing game. In the rushing game, the Browns didn’t give up a ton of yards overall...
