Browns still not plugging holes in rushing defense

BEREA, Ohio (AP) Browns veteran linebacker Karlos Dansby doesn't need anyone to point out the surprising statistics about Cleveland's defense. He knows there are holes - too many of them. The Browns have the worst rushing defense in the league, dead last among 32 teams. ''This is the truth and the truth hurts,'' Dansby said. ''No excuses.''...

Arizona Cardinals at Oakland Raiders: 2014 Week 7 NFL Pick

Arizona Cardinals (4-1) at Oakland Raiders (0-5) The Cardinals are 4-1 and have one of the best records in football, but they’re a very flawed, fraudulent 4-1. The Cardinals are just +10 in point differential despite their record and they’ve needed to win the turnover battle by 8 just to do that. Winning the turnover battle consistently is very hard to do so that’s going to...

Regrading The Cleveland Browns Free Agent Signings

The Cleveland Browns, fresh off their thrilling home opening 26-24 win over NFC powerhouse New Orleans Saints, may finally be turning the corner towards respectability.

Here are some early season grades on those moves: Karlos Dansby #454860448...

Browns trail Steelers 27-3 at the half, lead in fan misery

Three touchdowns and a two field goals to the Browns’ field goal. 27-3. What went wrong? Other than...

Acho's emergence key to Cardinals' pass-rushing hopes

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Let's face it: the Cardinals linebacker situation is a mess. Karlos Dansby is in Cleveland, Daryl Washington is suspended for at least a year and John Abraham is MIA until at least next week, with a possible suspension coming his way after a DUI charge. All those feel good vibes about the Jared Veldheer and Antonio Cromartie signings, and the return of Jonathan...

Arizona Cardinals Training Camp Preview: Linebackers

This is the biggest question mark on the defense and quite possibly the entire team. Karlos Dansby took his talent and bolted to Cleveland for a four-year deal in free agency. Daryl Washington was suspended for at least a year in late May for multiple violations of the league’s substance abuse policy. It left a big hole in the middle of the Arizona 3-4 scheme and is going to force...

Quotable Monday: Karlos Dansby doesn’t see a weakness in Cleveland

Karlos Dansby has been on good teams (his Arizona Cardinals went to Super Bowl XLIII) and on some bad teams as well. He would be better suited than most on the current Cleveland Browns roster to determine what kind of a team we have for 2014. And his take on it is surprisingly optimistic: “I can see what everyone else can’t see.” He said regarding the 2014 Browns, “This...

Mailbag: Cleveland’s free agent pickups are not old

The Browns seem to be stockpiling old guys in Free Agency. Is that a good thing? -Phil in Cleveland I don’t think it’s necessarily a bad thing, but I actually don’t agree with your statement that the Browns are “stockpiling old guys.” If you looked at some of the players who were brought in, there’s not a noticeably huge jump in age.

Top-10 ILB’s: Dansby needs help

The inside linebacker position is the beating heart of an NFL defense. That position requires a tough guy who is willing to give his body to stop the run. It requires a fast guy to be able to cover tight ends and pick off passes. It also requires a smart guy, as the inside linebacker is the “quarterback” of the defense, complete with the communication link to the sideline. This...
