Itchy Trade Finger?

Day 2 of the NFL draft was really day 1 for the Cleveland Browns, and to nobody’s surprise, GM Phil Savage was wheeling and dealing to move around and get the players he wanted. The first pick for the Browns was supposed to be the 122nd overall, but fearing the LB they wanted wouldn’t be

Hey, Look. It’s Our Turn!

With Day 1 of the NFL Draft in the books, we now turn to the second day – one in which the Browns will actually see their helmet pop up on the TV screen. While I held out for the small hope that Phil Savage and Company would move in to the first day with

Worst. Draft. Ever?

I’ve got some advice for Kansas City Gm Carl Peterson, if he cares to listen. You just traded away the top sack man in the league for a first rounder and a couple of thirds. I’m not going to debate whether or not Allen should have been a part of your rebuilding process. Getting those

The Worst First. Twice.

  With the Miami Dolphins announcing today that Jake Long (OT – Michigan) will be the first overall selection in this year’s NFL Draft, Rivals.com took matters into their own hands to create slide-shows of the 10 best and 10 worst top selections ever.  And while there’s no telling where Long will fit into this scope

Draft Day: Bank on DBs

 …Well, not the first draft day – as the Browns lack picks in the first three rounds – but the second for sure.  James Walker (formerly of the Columbus Dispatch, currently of ESPN) addresses the need for Cleveland to add a few bodies to the defense next weekend regardless of the number of selections.  Good news

More Trouble In Cincy

  As if all of the antics of player arrests and botched trades weren’t enough for the Cincinnati Bengals, NBC Sports (via ESPN) has more fun to report.  Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Chad Johnson says he wants to be traded before the NFL draft on April 26-27, ESPN reported Wednesday. Johnson said he will not attend

Browns Made A Huge Mistake, Pause, Not

I’ve been meaning to write about this for a couple days now. The fine folks over at Scouts Inc, the scouting section of ESPN, decided to do a “redraft” of the 2005 NFL Draft. First of all, these things are kind of dumb. As I always say, hindsight is always easier than foresight. That being

Brady Quinn Slated To Start Week 14

  …At least per Philadelphia sportswriter Larry O’Rourke. Apparently, Mr. O’Rourke was given the task to forecast the entire upcoming season for the Eagles, giving a final score and a brief reason why.  Some of his forecasts are not too unrealistic.  For instance, Donovan McNabb is slated to be injured during the first quarter of Week

Another Staph Infection?

This time it is wide receiver Joe Jurevicius. According to the PD, Jurevicius had a rather routine knee clean-up at the Cleveland Clinic, and starting feeling symptoms a few weeks later. That makes at least 4 current Cleveland Browns that have had staph infections– Jurevicius, Braylon Edwards, Kellen Winslow and LeCharles Bentley. In addition, former Browns

Vernon Gholston, First Overall?

With the Miami Dolphins on the clock with the first overall selection in the upcoming draft, Bill Parcells and company have already stated that they will not be selecting Matt Ryan out of Boston College.  While it was reported yesterday that the ‘Phins have begun talks with the University of Michigan’s Jake Long, another Big

Just When You Thought You’ve Seen It All…

I feel like I’m repeating myself with all of this “Pittsburgh Steeler Arrest” talk, but this one may take the cake.  The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports that one of the actors that portrays Steely McBeam, the mascot of the Steelers, was arrested for DUI.  Kenneth Hahey, 24, of Mt. Washington was charged with drunken driving after

RIP Gib Shanley

Gib Shanley was the voice of the Browns for many fans… [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JIQGPaURTmo[/youtube] My dad used to make us turn down the television and listen to the radio broadcasts while watching the game. Sometimes I still do it. Especially recently, when the Browns warranted the least popular announcing duos on the network. If only Gib was

Brandon McDonald: Possible Starter? Webmaster?

With the trade of veteran cornerback Leigh Bodden to Detroit this offseason, the Browns will need to find someone to start opposite second-year DB Eric Wright. In the few games that Wright missed towards the end of last season, Cleveland’s fifth-round selection Brandon McDonald saw some extra time and turned some heads. Apparently, he turned

Good Grief.

As Lucy used to say, “Of all the Charlie Browns in the world, you’re the Charlie Brownest!” Yep. On the same day I laughed at the plight of the Cincinnati Bengal offense (see Declawed), it seems a Cleveland Brown was running from the law. Literally. Cleveland CB Kenny Wright, who should be pushing for a

Getting Back Into The First Round?

Not all too long ago, we had a poll on the sidebar asking the readers which position they felt needed to be upgraded the most in the Browns’ off-season.  Obviously, attention was focused on the defensive side of the ball, and our prayers were figuratively answered as Phil Savage added several key pieces to the

Declawed?

Is this a fitting video for the Cincinnati Bengals’ offense or what? [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nNEwNNt7-wQ[/youtube] Perhaps you’ve heard the news that Cincinnati’s offense lost another WR today. Chris Henry was released following his latest run-in with Cincinnati’s finest. Allegedly, Henry punched an 18 year old in the face and threw a beer bottle through a windshield. He

04/02 Morning Minute: Is The AFC North Looking Weak?

Not more than a few days ago, we touched on the possibility that Phil Savage would vote for the NFL to re-seed their playoff format – citing that the AFC North was statistically the toughest division last season, and that the Browns themselves got a raw deal despite a 10-win season. Well, it appears that

Les Levine on Season Tickets

Are you a season ticket holder? [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1k7KObR2nTQ[/youtube] Interesting. Not being a season ticket holder I had no idea that you had to pay in full before you even knew the schedule. Now, I can’t imagine it is that hard to unload those tickets, but Les has a point. What do you think?
