Bad news Browns: NFL teams select best QB with 1st overall pick

TINSTAAQP might as well be part of the normal fan speak this time of year when it comes to the NFL Draft.1 There Is No Such Thing As A Quarterback Prospect is a subtly often repeated idea expressed through everything from whispers to shouts of names such as Ryan Leaf, JaMarcus Russell, Brandon Weeden, and

Is Brandon Weeden an “undervalued” fantasy QB?

We certainly don’t spend a lot of time talking about fantasy football here at WFNY, but I found this ESPN post (insider) about undervalued QBs to be pretty interesting. Brandon Weeden comes in at number seven on their list behind RG3, Ryan Tannehill and Alex Smith among others. The post goes on to compare Weeden’s

Browns fans predict the team will go 9-7 in 2013

Browns fans are an optimistic bunch, at least collectively. When you add up the results of our survey, it yields a 9-7 prediction. (Game-by-game results are listed below.) That’s probably a bit too confident for my tastes. I’ve said all along that eight wins should be the goal for the team if they are able

Marecic, 24, was drafted in the fourth round in 2011 as a fullback/linebacker hybrid out of Stanford. He joined the franchise as a highly regarded and

Adam Caplan reports that the Bengals are on the trail of former Cleveland Browns tight end Alex Smith. Veteran FB/TE Alex Smith’s visit with the Bengals is scheduled for today. — Adam Caplan (@caplannfl) April 10, 2013 The summation for Alex Smith’s time in Cleveland for me is probably that he was better than I

The Cleveland Browns and year-over-year quarterback envy

On March 26th 2013 we are now a little over a year since the Browns missed out on commencing a trade with the St. Louis Rams for the right to draft Robert Griffin III. I remember those days embarrassingly now not because it was dumb to covet RG3 as a Browns fan, but because I

Some Browns bits on Alex Smith, Leroy Hoard, Ray Horton, Ozzie Newsome and more

There’s not one topic I feel like talking about today as we endure a week of Super Bowl and Hall of Fame propoganda. The Browns introduced their defensive coordinator Ray Horton yesterday, but even that was putting a cap on old news. With that in mind, I thought I would just combine a bunch of

WFNY Podcast – 2012-09-27 – Craig and Scott preview Browns vs. Ravens

You want the short version? There is no good reason to pick the Browns to win Thursday. We already all new that. That doesn’t mean the Browns can’t win per se, but if you predict them to do so you’re praying more than predicting. More specifically, we talked about… Mohamed Massaquoi missing the game Alex

Massaquoi, Alex Smith ruled out Thursday against Ravens

The task of beating a more talented divisional opponent won’t be any easier for the Browns now that Mohamed Massaquoi has officially been ruled out of the game. Earlier this week the Browns seemed at least somewhat hopeful that Massaquoi would be available. Or maybe they wanted the Ravens to think they were hopeful. Either

Another view of Peter King’s stat of the week regarding running backs

Peter King does great work and his Monday Morning Quarterback column is a must-read. He has some really enlightening information in the column even if you sometimes question his sources. Obviously Tom Heckert does, as he blatantly told the Cleveland press this week that he hasn’t talked to King in years. Be that as it

Feeling good about Browns prospects at tight end

Earlier, I predicted that the Browns are probably overrating their running backs. It concerns me because much like they did with wide receivers the year before, the Browns seem like they could be betting on question marks. Well, when it comes to tight ends, I am really encouraged by the prospects of the Browns getting

NFL Playoffs Teach Us that Building Teams is Hard Work

Every week of the Browns season we do the (sometimes comical) “Browns will win if…” articles here on WFNY.  Usually it was something about Peyton Hillis being healthy, Colt McCoy finding some rhythm with his receivers, Phil Taylor and Ahtyba Rubin stopping the run, or Phil Dawson hitting eleventeen field goals as the keys to

Browns Fumble Their Way to a Loss to 49ers 20-10

Imagine that?  The Browns were 9.5 point underdogs and they lost by 10 points to the San Francisco 49ers.  The Browns were their own worst enemy all game long fumbling the ball and generally not having any kind of tempo on offense.  So the Browns fall to 3-4 and will need to lick their wounds

Micro-Analyzing the Armond Smith Pitch

Everyone knows I was high on Armond Smith coming into the season.  This has nothing to do with that.  I fully realize that Smith wouldn’t have made this roster if not for the Brandon Jackson turf toe injury.  He fumbled the ball away in the pre-season and showed flashes of explosive play, but he would
