NFL Playoff Drought: Will a stout offensive line lead to a Cleveland Browns playoff appearance?

The Cleveland Browns have gone fifteen years without a consistent answer at the quarterback position. This year may be no different, but one thing is for sure. Whoever plays quarterback for the Browns this season should have plenty of time to throw. The Browns allowed Brian Hoyer to be a “game manager” through the first five games of last season and it led to a solid 3-2 start...

Is Joe Thomas one of the best all around players in the NFL?

Joe Thomas is easily one of the best, if not the best left tackle in the game today. He has been to eight Pro Bowls and been named a first-team All Pro five times. In 2013 and 2014 he accomplished both of those tasks. Left tackle could arguably be considered a top position in the NFL and long-time veterans at that position are tough to come by. Fortunately for the Cleveland Browns...
