The Browns announced the signing of Nate Burleson on Sunday night. Burleson will be 33 when the season begins. He has had a nice NFL career, but at this point he isn’t exactly the threat opposite Gordon that would make the Browns a dangerous offense. (Quarterback notwithstanding.) The Browns currently have the following receivers on the roster: Josh Gordon, Nate Burleson Greg Little...

Cleveland Browns Game 7: Winner and Losers

Who caught your eye? Did someone stand out? Who blew it? That’s what were interested in this morning. Winners and losers. Ugh. The Browns loss yesterday to the Packers had a familiar look to it. Which means we might struggle to find anything positive. LOSER: Brandon Kyle Weeden. Yes, there was a point in the game where Weeden completed a few passes in a row and moved the Browns...

Browns are bad and boring in loss to Packers

Yawn. Every NFL fan’s worst nightmare is reality once again in Cleveland. The team is not only bad, but a deadly combination of bad and boring. That’s my takeaway from Green Bay as the Browns failed to do nearly anything offensively all day. The Browns end up falling to the Packers 31 to 13. It wasn’t just the Brandon Weeden-led offense. The defense started the day off poorly...

Cleveland Kick Returner Travis Benjamin--Yeah, he's Bad.

Three weeks ago you would not have seen a play like this. No, the Cleveland Browns were not clutch players at all. These guys were more like a group that played the game, but when they fell behind it was "oh well; here we go again." Not anymore. It appears like trading away a former first round draft pick was just the catalyst that the Browns needed to get it together...
