Browns Fans Left Kids At Home To Tailgate

Another fail moment, in the rich history of Cleveland Browns fans failures. Now, we can argue if the kids were old enough to be left home alone or not, but here the story out. Personally, I don’t think the parents did anything too egregious, but hey. Three Browns fans in Ohio did not take that all-too-important step before tailgating at the Cleveland-Baltimore game on Sept. 21...

Opportunity knocks - but only if Browns can win on the road

BEREA, Ohio - Come Saturday, the Cleveland Browns will load the chartered buses, then the fancy chartered plane, then more buses will be waiting on the tarmac in Nashville for the ride to the fancy hotel. Everywhere but Nashville, that ride includes a police escort. The point is, the really tough part of an NFL road trip comes on game day. But as the Browns enter what appears to...

Cleveland Browns don’t earn any 2014 first quarter NFL defensive awards

There’s an old saying in the NFL: Teams can’t win a championship in September, but they certainly can lose one. Translation? Getting off to a good start doesn’t ensure late-season success, but struggling out of the gates almost guarantees that a team won’t be playing in January. That’s why taking a moment to look at the state of the NFL one-fourth of the way through the...

Browns not looking past Titans to soft schedule

BEREA, Ohio (AP) The Browns' upcoming schedule looks pillowy soft, comfortable. It's appealing for sure, loaded with games they can - and maybe should - win. Beginning with Sunday's game at Tennessee, Cleveland's next five opponents have a combined 4-16 record, and two of those teams, Oakland and Jacksonville, are winless. The future can be enticing. Or deceivingly...

Is Jim Dray of the Cleveland Browns a top ten tight end in the NFL?

Most sportswriters would tell you that Jimmy Graham of the New Orleans Saints is the best tight end playing in the NFL today. I am not one of them. Don’t get me wrong, Graham is a fine tight end but I consider him to be a wide receiver in all but name only. If you take issue with that you should know that Graham himself made the same argument when he was trying to renegotiate his...
