Now is not the time for the Browns to lean on Josh McCown

(Photo: Northeast Ohio Media Group) When the Browns passed on Teddy Bridgewater and selected Johnny Manziel in the 2014 NFL Draft, they made a potentially historic gaffe. Given the way Bridgewater’s career has started with a not-so-good Vikings team that was without Adrian Peterson for his rookie season, that much is clear. A year later, […]

Four Down Territory: Closing the Black Hole

There’s really no time to look back on last Sunday’s debacle in Jacksonville. Another bad NFL football team is next on the docket for the Cleveland Browns, and in the interest of not repeating anything that happened in Jacksonville, it’s best to just look ahead.

He’s been photographed with scantily clad college girls and occasionally enjoys a good sparkler (in his mouth). He’s 21 years old, and he acts like it. He hasn’t done anything that college kids nationwide don’t do […]
