Mike Pettine ranked 28 out of NFL coaches (and that’s OK)

Rankings are arbitrary and sometimes even fun. Oftentimes they’re not much more than fodder for arguments and conversation, which is exactly what sports is supposed to be about, I guess. So CBS Sports’ Pete Prisco decided to use this relatively quiet time of year to rank NFL coaches, and while I like Mike Pettine and

GIF: Cincinnati Bengals coach Marvin Lewis tackled by his own player

Sometimes, the world is a beautiful place in which everything comes together perfectly. Sometimes, one moment captures the quintessence of a larger event. Sometimes, one play is a microcosm of a whole football game. Sometimes, that game is a 24-3 Cleveland Browns victory over the Cincinnati Bengals. This was the case last night, and poor Bengals head

Scott Raab on Richie Incognito, Jonathan Martin, the media, the Cavs and going for two – WFNY Podcast – 2013-11-11

This week, with the Browns on the bye, Scott and I spent a lot of time talking about things that weren’t specifically related to Cleveland sports. We talked about the ongoing story of the Dolphins. We talked about the word “bullying” vs. the actual harassment. We talked about Richie Incognito and his checkered past. We

Marvin Lewis: Chudzinski inheriting a better football team

Offseason division gesturing is a common thing in the NFL world, especially in the vaunted AFC North that has won several championships and placed at least two playoff teams for most of the last decade. Because of that, it was a bit of a surprise to see Marvin Lewis’ comments about the Browns and Rob

Bengals place linebacker Thomas Howard on IR with ACL tear

We never wish injuries on anyone in the NFL, but it is a part of the game and as Browns fans know all too well, it changes the action each and every Sunday. That disclaimer in mind, Thomas Howard’s injury is a big blow to the Bengals defense ahead of the matchup this weekend with

The Illusion of Overnight Success – Part 2 – Bengals

Yesterday, some accused me of being selective in selecting the 49ers as an example of why “overnight success” is an illusion in the NFL.  Some challenged me to take on the Bengals.  So, here we are.  I am going to tell you why the Bengals are not an “overnight success.” I didn’t consider the Bengals

Browns Weren’t Ready – Lose to Bengals 27-17

Bengals rookie receiver A.J. Green got his first touchdown today to give the Bengals a 20-17 lead. It couldn’t have been a more embarrassing play for the Browns. The Browns’ defense was still getting set and ready to line up with Joe Haden inside near the hashes as Green was lined up outside. Bruce Gradkowski

Browns Yield in Battle of Ohio

The Browns started the Bengals’ streak, so I guess it was somewhat cosmically fitting that they would end it too. It was not fitting in any way for a Browns fan base that was elated to see Colt McCoy back under center and hopeful for a late-season explosion like the Browns did a year ago.

Appreciating Randy Lerner by Comparison

To derive happiness from the shortfalls of others is really very unbecoming in life.  Then again, the yin and yang are important because without ups, there could be no downs and without unhappiness there could be no such thing as happiness.   You know; elementary philosophy and all that.   As the Browns head into

Bengals Think Eric Wright is “One of the Better Corners”

Heading into their Week 4 matchup with the 0-3 Cleveland Browns, it would be assumed that the Cincinnati Bengals are licking their collective chops.  Even more so, the Bengals are a team that boast several play-making weapons on offense and said weapons are obviously well aware of what Baltimore did to cornerback Eric Wright one

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
