Best Cornerbacks Available?

I apologize for breaking up this Cleveland Indians party today, but after this afternoon’s game, I need something else to talk about.  Enter the Cleveland Browns. I mentioned yesterday that the team had been trying out a veteran lineman to bolster what could be an injury-plagued guard slot.  And while that’s all good, the main

Does This Get Anyone Else Pumped?

Being that this was the first picture of Donte Stallworth sporting the Orange and Brown, I thought it would be a diservice to you readers if I did not share.  Just think, not even six months ago, we were looking at Tim Carter as our third receiver… More OTA pictures after the jump.

Browns Looking to Bolster O-Line?

It sure is a tough time to be a General Manager in Cleveland, eh?  Danny Ferry is on the hot seat for his supporting cast.  Mark Shapiro could pass as a statue after standing still for the last six months.  And Phil Savage is in dire need of a warm body to plug in at

Browns Add Terry Cousin

Browns Continue to Get Defensive, but Not By Choice  With the whole Daven Holley season-ending injuy and the resulting paper thin cornerback corps, Team Savage has reportedly struck a deal with veteran cornerback Terry Cousin.  Cousin has been quite the journeyman over his career, but had suited up for Jacksonville over the past three seasons.  While

Secondary Concerns

The Browns secondary wasn’t exactly stellar last season, and it looks like things are actually getting worse… The Orange and Brown Report broke news yesterday that CB Daven Holly has injured his knee, and it doesn’t sound very positive to me- The OBR has been told by sources close to the organization that CB Daven Holly

Which Was Worse?

The FanHouse recently did a piece that revisited the 2005 Cincinnati Bengals draft.  What looked like a solid draft on paper, at the time, turned out to be quite a disaster just a few years later. 1.17 – David Pollack: Retired 2.48 – Odell Thurman: Released 3.83 – Chris Henry: Released 4.119 – Eric Ghiaciuc: Starting

Cribbs to the Crib

While a lot of the words out of OTAs have focused on the Kellen Winslow absence, or the pending (hopeful) return of LeCharles Bentley, the Plain Dealer has some news that should get even the most fair-weather Browns fans smile.  Nope, not $1 beer night.  How about Josh Cribbs on offense. “We’re putting in a nice package just to

That Will Be All, Kenny Wright

From the journal of non-surprising news, the Cleveland Browns have shook things up in the defensive backfield by releasing recent mug shot model, Kenny Wright. The Browns did not site his lack of speed as a reason for his dismissal, but something leads me to believe that if you cannot out-run a policeman donning full regalia, that

And It Starts…

Gee, it would be nice if this article was a positive upbeat article about the Browns beginning OTA’s wouldn’t it? The Browns did indeed begin voluntary workouts yesterday. Twelve voluntary conditioning slash practices will take place over the next three weeks. There will be another round of voluntary workouts prior to training camp. Why the special

Behind Enemy Lines

Since all of you guys put up with our constant ramblings regarding the Cavs, Tribe, Browns, and Buckeyes day in and day out, I thought it would be beneficial to give you all a look into what all of the respective division rivals are talking about. There aren’t many basketball teams still out there, so

Baby Got Linebackers

…with a lot of them sharing duites. As we’re finding more and more Cleveland fans looking forward to Browns season (can you blame them after yesterday?) the Canton Repository checks in with some science on the Cleveland linebacking situation.  It shouldn’t be much of a surprise that the only two linebackers that are locked into starting

Oh, So THAT’S Why The Browns Lost

Spy Gate Hits Close To Home I’ll be honest, I don’t remember anything about the Browns game in New England on December 9th, 2001. It was 7 years ago, and the if anything sticks out about the 2001 season, it was the following week at home against Jacksonville….the bottle throwing game (on a side note….why

Youth Movement in ’09

Thanks to the Orange and Brown Report and The Football Wire for the tip. Browns LB Willie McGinest has reportedly announced that he plans to retire after the ’08 season. With his contract set to expire, it is not likely the Browns would have brought him back, but the former Super Bowl winner is going

Supporting Austin Scott

While Mike continues to pound out excellent work regarding the recently drafted Browns players, The Sons of Nev have a pretty intriguing piece regarding Austin Scott – one of the seven players added post-draft.  Scott, a son of the Big Ten, is one of the more-heralded running backs in recent Pennsylvania history, but as SoN

Another Athlete Robbed in Chicago

While it’s a fairly slow Cleveland sports morning with the Cavs and Tribe both having last night off, I thought it would be worth while mentioning a rather unfortunate occurrence of an athlete getting robbed in Chicago  – especially since we’ll likely be seeing an awful lot of him over the next few years. Rashard Mendenhall,

Browns Extend MVP…

The Cleveland Browns inked a contract extension with perhaps the man most valuable to the team’s turnaround. General Manager Phil Savage. The extension will keep Savage in Cleveland until 2012. This extension has been talked about since Romeo Crennel signed his deal shortly after the Super Bowl. Cleveland Browns.com’s Zac Jackson has the details. Savage

What Was Braylon Thinking?

While I think that we were one of the only blogs to not really delve into the entire Will Leitch/Buzz Bissinger/Bob Costas issue, C-Notes has put together a pretty homorous take from the mind of Braylon Edwards – who, for some reason, was on the panel of those that were to discuss the Internet.  Naturally,

Holy Undrafted Free Agents Batman!

Wow. We thought that the Browns would be players in the UFA market, but my goodness this is crazy! According to Barry McBride over at The Orange and Brown Report, the Browns have been extremely busy the last two days. (Do you think the Browns have a fax repairman on site for days like this,

2008 is Looking Good For The Buckeyes

With the 2008 draft now in the rear view mirror, Browns fans can now do two things.  1) Check out Beckwith’s excellent recaps of the players that Phil Savage and crew selected this past weekend, and… 2) Get ready for next season’s draft where we will hopefully have a few picks on the first day.

We Think “Corner,” Browns Go “Quarter”

While Mike is going to continue providing his solid work on the Browns recent draft selections, the fact that we made five selections without selecting a defensive back has some scratching their heads.  With the focused now turned to the undrafted rookies, James Walker reports that the Browns have already made a move: Now that
