The Cleveland Browns lost their fifth game of the season on Sunday, falling to the New York Jets, 17-14, at FirstEnergy Stadium.
When the Harvard Brain Trust decided the Cleveland Browns (0-4) should tank last season, there was concern that it would kick off an NBA-esque race to the bottom that the NFL had never before known. It remains unclear if the HBT is still playing for the future in 2017, but a quick review of the
The Cleveland Browns are taking on the New York Jets. The Jets have a ton of Ohio connections and the Browns have a chance to win this game. No, really. WFNY is here to explain.
In advance of Sunday’s game between the Cleveland Browns and New York Jets, WFNY presents a Q&A with Brian Bassett from SNY’s theJetsBlog.
The culture of the NFL opens the league to a wide variety of opposite forces. Players want to be viewed as warriors. The league uses slow motion highlights to paint them that way. Companies like Nike and Under Armour do everything they can to paint them that way too. Ronnie Lott’s legend couldn’t be bigger
The first of those being the fact that if Pittsburgh loses, Braylon wins. This might be a tough spot for some Browns fans to root from – assuming you’re looking for a rooting interest in Sunday’s AFC title game – but not for me. I don’t want Pittsburgh to go to the Superbowl. I don’t want to hear what
The Browns are desperately searching for their next coach, but I won’t talk about candidates today, because there is nothing new to say. Instead, I will point out an interesting question that a friend of mine raised yesterday. When the Browns fired Eric Mangini, many thought that Mike Holmgren had his dream guy all lined

I mean, they could be if someone wanted to standardize the way they are calculated based on a number of variables and factors. But
It is good to be upset at losing today’s heart-breaker to the Jets 26-20 in overtime. That’s what real fans of real NFL teams feel after losing a game like this. I was really disappointed just like the rest of you. So I am glad that you feel that way. Then again, if that negativity
When and Where: Sunday November 14th, 2010 – 1:00 PM – Cleveland Browns Stadium – Cleveland, OH Overview: I have no interest in the themes of this game. Yes, I will always root against Braylon Edwards for the rest of time, but it doesn’t matter that he is in Cleveland this week. I root against
In January 2009, I wrote a letter to Braylon Edwards. We had just finished Romeo Crennel’s disappointing tenure with the team. Eric Mangini was hired and Braylon and the Browns really had a chance to start over. Except Braylon never really started over. He came back even worse. He fought Mangini and the new team
As we now sit and wait for training camp with real football pads it is a time to take very very early stock of your NFL team. The roster has come into focus and we have initial reports to mull over regarding rookies and free agents and any off-field incidents. This year, the word seems
Most Browns fans that we come across around these pages seem to be mostly in agreement that the Browns need to take the most talented, difference-making defensive player with the #7 pick. In fact, beyond that, I think most people around here are down to even making sure it is a defensive back, either Joe
Pro Football Talk is reporting that the meetings between the NFL and player’s association are now starting to get into financial details. Specifically, they report by way of SportsBusiness Journal that the concept of a rookie wage scale could very well be on the table now. The NFL is the best-run league in the United
Braylon Edwards helped the Jets lose to the Miami Dolphins yesterday in a divisional matchup. Thanks to a victory in Oakland last week, the Jets are now 1-3 since adding the dynamic receiving threat to their roster. Yesterday during the Miami game Braylon caught 4 balls including one touchdown. He was targeted 8 times according
Just like when we all sat back in satisfaction when the Tampa Bay Buccaneers signed Kellen Winslow to his giant contract, we should all take a moment and sigh in relief as the Jets sign Mark Sanchez. The Jets seem to have come to terms with the draft pick that they got from Cleveland on
The Internet is a magical place. While Clevelanders of yester-year had to suffer in a vacuum of sports misery talking about their problems, we have the benefit of communication like the world has never seen before. That sounds like the opening lines of pretty much any paper I wrote in college. Wide sweeping statement that
I am sure most of you are either watching the NFL playoffs or the Cavs’ battle in Washington against the Wiz. Meanwhile, we haven’t been talking a lot about the Browns since the season ended, and with good reason. What is there to say that hasn’t already been said? Well, now with a little time
