Justin Gilbert may be the forgotten man right now, but will we be saying Johnny Who in September?.

The card was ready to hand in. On it was the name of Sammy Watkins, Wide Receiver, Clemson. Then the phone rang, and the whole draft changed for the Cleveland Browns. The Browns had the number 4 pick in the draft and had been shopping it around all week to test the market. The Buffalo Bills were the most likely to bite, and their GM Doug Whaley was the guy making the call...

Hold on to your hat Johnny Manziel – It’s going to be a rough ride!

It seems that Johnny Manziel is dominating the news again this week, proving once more that while we supposedly live in the ‘land of the free,’ it only applies to those who are not young, talented and successful, and who do not play Quarterback for the Cleveland Browns. Ever since Manziel was drafted with the 22nd pick of the NFL Draft 2 weeks ago, the main talking point...

Graduation time for the Cleveland Browns.

The Cleveland Browns have decided it’s time to graduate to the next level. The Browns have made some strong moves this off season to stop from being mathematically eliminated by Thanksgiving every year, and start playing meaningful games in December and January. There is a solid foundation to start from.  No, I’m not talking about Johnny Manziel or Josh Gordon.  Don...

Did Johnny Manziel’s trip to Vegas tell us anything about his ability to succeed in Cleveland?.

The Cleveland Browns already know that potential doesn’t always equate to success in the NFL, especially at the Quarterback position. Jeff George, David Carr, Joey Harrington, Mike Phipps, David Klingler, Todd Blackledge, Heath Shuler, Todd Marinovich,  Art Schlichter, JaMarcus, Russell, Ryan Leaf, and our very own Brady Quinn, Tim Couch and Colt McCoy.  This is a list of...

Does Josh Gordon deserve our sympathy, support and forgiveness?.

It is now two weeks since news broke of Cleveland Browns receiver Josh Gordon’s possible suspension, and we are still no nearer finding out just how long he will be missing. No sooner had the cheers subsided following the drafting of Johnny Manziel, than they were replaced with groans as ESPN’s Outside the Lines reported that Gordon had received word that he had been charged...

Memorial Day – Remembering those who made the Ultimate Sacrifice for their Country, including former Cleveland Browns player Don Steinbrunner.

First of all, for those of us who need a refresher, Memorial Day is the day the men and women who died while serving their Country are remembered. Most, if not all of us, will not remember Don Steinbrunner. Many may never even have known of his existence.  Don was an End at Washington State, subsequently drafted by the Cleveland Browns in the 6th round of the 1953 draft. He...

Tom Gizzo remembers – Browns Legend and Gridiron Great Frank “Gunner” Gatski.

Frank Gatski was born the Son of a Polish immigrant on March 18th 1919, in the coal mining town of Farmington, West Virginia. The Gatski’s were a coal mining family, most of the men in the family working in the nearby Number Nine Coal Mine Camp. As a teenager Frank Gatski worked at the mine during the summer too, and would go to work there full time in his senior year of High...

Connor Shaw may not be the Browns next Quarterback, but there are plenty of reasons to root for him.

While all the talk at the Cleveland Browns camp this week has centered around the supposed battle between Brian Hoyer and Johnny Manziel, another Quarterback is battling for his own position on the team, and has been all but forgotten. I am not talking about Tyler Thigpen, the veteran Quarterback who is considered to be the third string for the Browns right now. I am referring...

The Cleveland Browns Total Team Makeover – 2014 version

It seems like the Cleveland Browns are constantly rebuilding themselves into a new version of something and what we have going this year is no exception.  New front office, new coaching staff, new offensive and defensive schemes, possible new uniforms like the one suggested above, it seems like there is a never-ending parade of new things coming the Cleveland Browns way...

Around the Pound – Greg Little, Browns receiving corps, and the Media frenzy!.

The Cleveland Browns released Wide Receiver Greg Little on Friday in a move that saddened some of us, but hardly came as a surprise to anybody who saw his play last season. The recent signings of Miles Austin & Earl Bennett added a veteran presence to a wide receiving corps that rendered Little expendable, and it was only a matter of time until it became official. The Browns...

Is Johnny Manziel the missing piece for the Cleveland Browns, or can management put the puzzle together?.

Is Johnny Manziel the missing piece that can turn around the fortunes of the Cleveland Browns? In a word – no.  No ONE player ever has, can, or will be the answer to a franchise. He might prove to be A piece to the puzzle, but certainly not THE piece.  It will take all 53 on the roster, the practice squad players, the entire coaching staff, and the Management, to become...

What will the Browns do with Johnny Manziel when Brian Hoyer leads them to a 10-6 Record in the AFC North?

All we seem to have seen recently are articles pushing Johnny Manziel to be the starting Quarterback for the Cleveland Browns in 2014. Fortunately, the noises coming from Berea suggest that it will be Brian Hoyer under center when the season starts, and that is how it should be. Owner Jimmy Haslam has already said that Hoyer will be the starter, and head coach Mike Petine is...

Are the Cleveland Browns looking to create their own ‘Hell on Wheels’ in 2014?.

The Cleveland Browns are searching for the next General George S. Patton to lead the charge in 2014 I don’t know about you, but it sure seems like it’s been a long time since I can remember anyone putting the Browns on their shoulders offensively, and by sheer force of personality, willing that team into the end-zone and on to victory.  We need someone like General George...

Should Josh Gordon’s latest drug violation prompt the NFL to review their policy on marijuana?.

Always an interesting subject, and certainly where the NFL is concerned, but the Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon has found himself at the center of another storm by allegedly testing positive for marijuana, a violation that could effectively end his career in Cleveland. While many Browns fans felt that this was always a real possibility with Gordon, there are those who...

Johnny Manziel takes aim to be the Cleveland Browns starting Quarterback against Pittsburgh.

That’s right, and you know that it can’t be wrong.  Johnny Football will be the Cleveland Browns starting Quarterback when they take the field against the Pittsburgh Steelers, September 7, 2014! Barring injury, how could it possibly be anyone other than Johnny leading the Browns to victory that day?  Is there anyone out there that thinks the Browns expended a first round...

The Browns season tickets may be selling like hotcakes, but I’m not buying into the Johnny Manziel hype.

  Disagree with me if you wish, but Johnny Manziel isn’t all that.  For at least the next 2 years, barring injury, I see Brian Hoyer as the starting quarterback for the Cleveland Browns.  Manziel is another very good college quarterback who will be nothing more than a career backup in the NFL. The only tangible thing Johnny Manziel brings to the table as a NFL quarterback is...

After an evening with Johnny Manziel, what will be next for the Cleveland Browns?

I suppose that we’ve all heard the saying “Better late than never”, though whether it has ever been more appropriate than it was for the Cleveland Browns last night is truly debatable! The first round of the 2014 NFL Draft was possibly one of the most dramatic in recent years, not just because it has become a worldwide media event, but because many of the General Managers involved...

Around The Pound – Vince Young, Bernie Kosar, and Phil Taylor.

The Cleveland Browns signed two Quarterbacks this week and immediately sent fans into a frenzy in the belief that their draft plans will change accordingly.

The Cleveland Browns had an excellent free agency period with 9 new players signed, upgrading many areas of concern on the team in the process.
