Browns Fan’s Thoughts as the Ravens Come to Town

“Who are you watching?” It was a Thursday night in September, and my wife seemed a little surprised there was an NFL game on TV. Looking up from the couch, I told her it was Pittsburgh at Baltimore. “Ohhhh. Your favorite teams.” I was about to gently remind her that I dislike no teams as much as these two (“Yeah, hun—wanna help me root for injuries?”). Instead, I decided...

The Watershed Quarterback

I’ve always liked words that have an alternate meaning which is owed to its use as a metaphor. For example, take ‘lynchpin.’ The original definition is a pin that is passed through the end of an axle to keep a wheel in position. The word began to also be used to describe something vital to an entity. “While not the group’s official leader, the work she did made her its...

Putting some bite back into the Browns-Steelers rivalry

Every time I hear a snarky Pittsburgh fan say that the Browns aren’t the Steelers’ rival my blood starts to boil. Not because I disagree, but because since I was born, I was raised to hate the Steelers and to believe that there was no better rivalry in the NFL than the one shared by the two blue collar cities sitting just 130 miles apart. To be a rivalry both sides need to be...

Pittsburgh and Kentucky Series in the Works, Keg of Nails Remains Dormant

Will the Jaguars really sit Blake Bortles for an entire season?

When asked to think of a quarterback bust, it doesn’t take long. Like the Google algorithm that returns thousands of results instantaneously, the mind blurts out “JaMarcus Russell!” “Akili Smith!” “Tim Couch!” and on we go. But there’s also “Blaine Gabbert!” which is why the Jacksonville Jaguars are understandably being both cautious with Blake Bortles, their...

See how to make a Johnny Manziel jersey out of your old Tim Couch

Cleveland Browns fans are ready for football, and apparently in the recycling mood. One fan decided that the best way to show his support for Johnny Manziel was to convert an old Tim Couch jersey with a bunch of pasted on money signs. I love the enthusiasm and can appreciate a bit of creativity, but this is a bit embarrassing, I think. [Also see: Brian Hoyer won’t be held back in training camp]

The Detroit Lions played against the Cleveland Browns on 9/23/01, the first week of NFL games after the tragedies that occurred on 9/11.

Top-5: Worst moments in Cleveland Browns history

5. Red Right 88 All you had to do was kick a field goal. In 1981, with a berth in the AFC Championship on the line, the Browns trailed the Raiders 14-12 and a field goal would end the game. Head coach Sam Rutigliano didn’t have any faith in his kicker, so he went for the touchdown. The play called was “Red Right 88,” and quarterback Brian Sipe as told to throw the ball away...

Phipps finished second in the Heisman Trophy voting in 1969 as a quarterback at Purdue. As a reward, the Miami Dolphins took him third overall, and traded him to Cleveland for future HOF wide receiver Paul Warfield (which make...

Whatever QB The Cleveland Browns Draft Is So Screwed

So, Johnny Manziel, how would you feel about the Cleveland Browns drafting you at No. 4? As you can see in the photo above, which CBS’ Will Brinson captioned ‘Factory of Sadness’, the Browns have been less than spectacular at drafting QBs. From left-to-right: Tim Couch was selected No. 1 by the Browns in the 1999 Draft (probably second to Ryan Leaf for biggest NFL bust). Charlie...

Why the Jaguars need Johnny

The Jacksonville Jaguars have been the punchline to some of the biggest jokes in the NFL over the past few seasons.  It really started when they drafted Blaine Gabbert with the 10th overall pick in the 2011 draft.  By the way Gabbert was traded to the San Francisco 49ers for a 6th round pick in this years draft.  It's safe to say the franchise completely whiffed on that one...
