Cleveland Browns Preseason Thoughts and Cut Watch

The Cleveland Browns continue their preseason journey and not much has been learned about their identity and direction. But it’s still early, and they have shown some signs of what type of team they might be in 2016 if you look at a couple of key areas. I’m not and haven’t been very optimistic for […]

Browns’ Loss Vaults Steelers to Playoffs

The final game was like a summary of the season. The Browns missed opportunities and  failed to score a touchdown to lose for the 18th time in the last 21 games. Trailing by five in the fourth quarter, Austin Davis fumbled, giving the Steelers a first and goal- which Pittsburgh quickly turned into a touchdown […]

Manziel runs all over, but runs out of time in loss to Chiefs

Johnny Manziel ran all over the Chiefs defense, but in the end he ran out of time in a 17-13 loss to the Chiefs. Manziel set a Browns quarterback record rushing for 108 yards, but didn’t have a chance to throw for the end zone as time ran out on the potential game-winning drive. Manziel slammed […]

Browns Start Strong, Lose Big in Seattle

The Cleveland Browns offense and Johnny Manziel showed signs of growth, but their defense was simply overmatched in a 30-13 loss in Seattle. The defense had no answers to stop the Seahawks as Seattle scored on its first four possessions. Overall,  Seattle converted six of eight possessions into points on the day and you could say […]

Johnny Manziel Ends Browns Skid, Beats 49ers

The San Francisco 49ers were exactly what the Cleveland Browns needed. The struggling Browns ended a seven-game losing streak with a 24-10 win. The Browns had a running game. They stopped the run. Johnny Manziel made plays.  The Browns had a season high in rushing (233 yards) and a season high (9) sacks. The 49ers (4-9) provided some […]

Somehow Browns Found New Way to Lose to Ravens

An old-timer at a place I once worked used to say, “Just when you think things can’t get any weirder, take a look around.” He wasn’t even talking about being a Browns fan. The Ravens were playing without QB Joe Flacco, WR Steve Smith and RB Justin Forsett, who are all out for the season […]

Browns Blown Out in The ‘Burgh

The Browns were undermanned and overmatched. Missing four starters out with injuries, Cleveland had too many penalties and turnovers. Their defense could not stop Ben Roethlisberger, who came in off the bench to lead the Steelers to a 30-9 win. The Steelers stay in the wild cart hunt at (6-4). The Browns fall to (2-8). “The thing that’s […]

Browns Lifeless in Second Half Meltdown Loss to Cardinals

The Browns can keep saying they are “close.” Close to winning. And close to seeing a season spiral away into double-digit losses. Despite forcing four turnovers and building a ten point halftime lead, the Browns dropped their third straight game, losing 34-20 to the Arizona Cardinals Sunday. The Browns looked like they’d have a chance […]

Browns Go Backwards in Embarrassing Loss to Rams

Penalties and turnovers are two things that will either drive a coach crazy or get them fired. Browns coach Mike Pettine may be headed for the latter if his team doesn’t start showing signs of improvement soon. Four Browns turnovers led to 17 Rams points and Cleveland committed 11 penalties for 98 yards as the Rams […]

Missed Opportunities Help Broncos Beat Browns

Missed opportunities was the theme for the Browns on this Sunday. Time and time again, they could not convert opportunities into points losing to the Denver Broncos 26-23 in overtime. The Browns intercepted Peyton Manning three times, including once in OT, but the offense that has been so productive in recent weeks went the wrong direction with the […]
