Some Colts prep for Cleveland homecoming

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Trent Richardson remembers the day he walked through the front doors of Cleveland's training facility for the first time. He was wearing the suit he had on when the Browns called his name with the third pick in the 2012 draft. Pat Shurmur, the head coach of the Browns at the time, met him at the door with a big smile on his face, Richardson recalled. ''It was one...

Three times when Colin Kaepernick regretted challenging Richard Sherman

On Sunday the Seattle Seahawks will visit the Philadelphia Eagles in what promises to be a great game and possible NFC Championship preview. Rumor has it that Eagles offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur plans on challenging Seattle’s All-Pro cornerback Richard Sherman. That might not be such a great idea. Not everyone fails when they go after Sherman. Philip Rivers had a great game...

Turnover-prone Eagles find ways to win

PHILADELPHIA (AP) Teams that lead the NFL in turnovers usually don't win too many games. Then again, Chip Kelly's Philadelphia Eagles aren't typical. The Eagles already have 25 turnovers, six more than they had in 2013. Nick Foles and Mark Sanchez have combined for 19 giveaways on 14 interceptions and five fumbles. Yet, the Eagles are 7-3 and tied with Dallas for first place in...

Dreams Fulfilled: Colt McCoy defeats Brandon Weeden on Monday Night Football

Just in case you missed this week’s edition of Monday Night Football, all the Pat Shurmur demons were exorcised on a field. Former Cleveland Browns quarterback Colt McCoy got the start for the Washington Redskins, and while we never root for injuries, I’d be lying if I said it didn’t feel somehow right with the universe that another former Browns quarterback in Brandon Weeden...

Nick Foles taking fewer sacks, throwing more picks

PHILADELPHIA (AP) Eagles quarterback Nick Foles is taking fewer sacks but throwing more interceptions. Any correlation? ''Well, that might be a good thing to check out,'' Eagles offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur said. ''I think each sack and each turnover are isolated plays. There is really no common theme.'' Getting rid of the ball quickly to avoid sacks can lead to picks if quarterbacks...

Joe Banner's tenure as Browns CEO, in retrospect, was quite memorable if unmarred by excessive victories. During his brief stay as CEO, Banner was responsible for sacking Pat Shurmur, bringing in his own coach, Rob Chudzinski, quickly sacking him, hiring Mike Lombardi, trying to trade for Jim Harbaugh to coach the franchise, and denying that he was one of the Three Stooges.
