Trent Richardson being traded is one of few positive moves Joe Banner and Mike Lombardi made in Cleveland.

Trent Richardson Trade: Vindicating Joe Banner and Mike Lombardi

On September 19, 2013, the Cleveland Browns traded Trent Richardson to the Indianapolis Colts for their 2014 first round pick.

Following the Cleveland Browns ‘shock’ win over New Orleans last weekend, head coach Mike Pettine was asked about quarterback Brian Hoyer’s poise. His response was certainly one to frame and put on the wall. “I’m developing an affinity for winning, and he’s a big part of it.” After the heartbreaking loss to the Baltimore Ravens […]

Cleveland Browns Are ‘Same Old Browns’ in Loss to Ravens

The Cleveland Browns seemingly find ways to lose football games.
