Three reasons the Cleveland Browns are STILL bad

It’s not easy being a Browns fan. Since 1999, it’s been a collection of bad decisions, bad quarterbacks and overall, just bad football. Sundays can be the toughest day of the week, giving us hope and then quickly reminding us why we can’t have nice things. The Browns were set up to fail when they returned to the NFL 15 years ago, but they’ve had plenty of time to fix the...

Karlos Dansby: Giving up big plays 'not a trend' for Browns

The Browns defense was supposed to be the strength of the team, but they’ve been susceptible to the big play this year. In San Diego, the Browns gave up a 68-yarder to Dontrelle Inman, a 61-yarder to Danny Woodhead, a 31-yarder to Keenan Allen, and a 20-yarder to Malcolm Floyd. That was just the passing game. In the rushing game, the Browns didn’t give up a ton of yards overall...

NFL: Tramon Williams was not offside on missed Chargers 4th quarter FG

The Cleveland Browns lost in depressing fashion in Week 4, but the NFL reportedly responded to a team inquiry with an interesting reply. “It came back that I wasn’t offside,” Tramon Williams said, per Mary Kay Cabot of Northeast Ohio Media Group. “I moved when the ball was snapped.” The Browns thought they were going to […] The post NFL: Tramon Williams was not offside...

Harbaugh advises Ravens to not take the Browns lightly…

The Browns have a very strong front seven on defense. John Harbaugh made a point of that on Wednesday. The rumors swirling around Baltimore on Wednesday were about Ozzie Newsome’s working the phones and trying to pick up a disgrunted wide receiver from another team in a trade, with the most notable names in that bunch being Roddy White (Atlanta), Anquan Boldin (San Francisco...

Pettine clarifies remarks about Haden sitting out vs. Chargers

After Sunday’s loss to the San Diego Chargers, Browns head coach Mike Pettine said that Joe Haden “made the decision that he didn’t want to go,” which immediately became the talking point du jour. Was Pettine calling Haden out? Was he questioning the cornerback’s toughness or desire to play? Exactly how much of the sky were we to believe was falling? Haden’s teammates...

Browns’ Mike Pettine, Not Ray Farmer, Is On Hot Seat

It would be tedious and shockingly time-consuming to recount every gut-wrenching, last-second defeat the Cleveland Browns have suffered since 1999, to the point that Sunday’s loss to San Diego – in which an offside penalty against Tramon Williams gave the Chargers a second chance at a game-winning field goal – seemed almost expected. Still, dropping […] The post Browns...

Tedy Bruschi: Always Feels Good To Beat Cowboys

The Dallas Cowboys historically are one of the top franchises in the NFL, so it’s hard to see any opponent overlooking them.

Dwayne Bowe Finally Healthy Enough To Prove His Worth To The Cleveland Browns

At one time, wide receiver Dwayen Bowe looked like he was going to be the next big thing. Back in 2010 he caught 72 balls for over 1100 yards and 15 touchdowns. He followed that up with another solid season in '11 with 82 receptions for over 1100 yards, but since then he has slowly fallen off the radar.Was it his fault? Was it because he didn't have a good quarterback in Kansas City...
