Browns make it interesting but fall to Panthers 17-13

The Cleveland Browns faced off against the Panthers in a game that was made even more meaningless with the official elimination of the Browns from the NFL playoffs. The Chargers won a game on Saturday that officially did the Browns in and seeing if Johnny Manziel could do better than his debut wasn’t nearly enough to get me up for the Browns game against the Panthers. As it turned...

Billy Winn “gave himself up” on interception, nullifying touchdown

The Browns made a good defensive play when they put Cam Newton under pressure and forced an interception. Barkevious Mingo got his hand on Newton’s arm and Billy Winn made a diving interception. Winn wasn’t touched and Jordan Poyer grabbed the ball, returning it all the way to the end zone. On the field, the referee, Ed Hochuli, said into his on-field mic that Winn “gave himself...

Johnny Manziel leaves Panthers game with injury

Johnny Manziel was running left when he met two Carolina Panthers defenders near the sidelines. He lowered his shoulder to meet one of the defenders and the other landed on the back of his legs. It was tough to see what the injury was, which is better than having it obvious. Regardless, Johnny Manziel moved gingerly toward the locker room with a towel on his head and a reported hamstring...

Manziel’s poor debut was preceded by poor practice

Though Johnny Manziel was allegedly the hardest working guy in Berea leading up to last Sunday’s NFL debut, reports are circulating that all that work may have been for naught as the Cleveland Browns quarterback displayed much of the same poor footwork and decision making that was on display during the team’s 30-0 loss at the hands of the Cincinnati Bengals. CBS Sports’ Jason...

Joe Thomas responds to environmental violations

(Insert dramatic laser sound effects.) “Is Joe Thomas guilty of polluting the earth? We’ll have more on this on the 11 o’clock news!” That’s all I could think of when I saw the AP headline on Joe Thomas that said, “Browns’ Thomas accused of environmental violations.” The state Department of Natural Resources sent the former Wisconsin Badgers standout and seven-time...

In turn, WFNY will soon announce its choice for 2014’s Cleveland Sportsman of the Year. Here’s one of the nominations for that honor by an WFNY writer.

Joe Thomas on the difference between player and fan perspective

The differences between how NFL players and NFL fans look at a game, season, or even an NFL career are endless. Obviously NFL fans are the ultimate outsiders no matter how much they love the team they watch every week. This isn’t groundbreaking or even all that novel a concept, but Joe Thomas’ session with the media yesterday served as another stark reminder of the differences...

Where happened to the defense? Cleveland Browns Film Room

The Cleveland Browns were blown out this week in the home finale versus in-state rival Cincinnati Bengals, 30-0. The team was completely outplayed by the Bengals in all phases of the game. The offense was shutdown, unable to score and even move the ball. But the real surprise was the fall of the Browns’ defense. Over the past four or five games, the Browns’ defense had really...
