Improvement under new coach bodes well beyond 2020

The 2020 NFL season was the most successful Browns’ season in almost three decades.  Coming off a 6-10 season in 2019, new head coach Kevin Stefanski led a very successful turnaround, earning him Coach of the Year honors. Not only was it the most wins in a single season for the Browns since 1994, it […]

Curses set aside, Browns take playoff push to KC

This blog started way back in 2002, one wild ride of a season, which featured the last Browns playoff team. Until now. Second-year coach Butch Davis‘ pro peak started with Dwayne Rudd serving up a Kansas City win in the form of an ill-advised celebratory helmet toss just before the end of what should’ve been […]

Browns Cruising, But Face Tough Road Ahead

In the NFL, any team can beat any other team on a given Sunday. However, when one club has playoff aspirations and another is mired in the muck of the NFL basement with the second-worst record in the league, we would presume the former would have little trouble with the latter. However, that’s not how […]

New book shines as a reflection of Bakermania

Baker Mayfield book offer

A unique addition to the Browns bibliography is out now. And I don’t mean out injured. The opposite, really: available. It’s a fun keepsake bio of Baker Mayfield himself. Baker Mayfield: Feeling Dangerous is unofficial, unaffiliated photo and feature journalism writ nice and large, considering its 24-year old star subject. The full 8 1/2-by-11-inch glossy […]

Storytelling time

Arrright, it’s gettin’ real. Training camp is behind us. So is the starters’ last tuneup game, a decidedly mixed bag. We can now see much more about this team’s strengths and vulnerabilities. But I’m not quite ready to slice and dice all that just yet. Why boil it down for the other NFL teams, who […]

Get set for free tastes of summer Camp Kitchens

2014 training camp qbs

It’s summer now. Hot dawg days, long but subtly diminishing. Time for vacations, for roaming far afield, maybe setting up camp. Well, our Browns have settled on theirs, dispelling murmurs of Central Ohio interest, and reportedly re-committing to Berea through 2039. The team’s HQ and training facility will stay in the city-owned site. And with […]

No Mathematical Limits with a Franchise QB

some Browns franchise quarterbacks

In this year of OK (Our Kosar), 2019, the most hopefully-anointed Browns franchise quarterback since Boy Bernie from Boardman is today’s darlin’ Baker Mayfield. Dorsey’s signature decision, and Harvey’s hero already, the OK gunslinger stands ready to chipperly shoulder Cleveland’s football expectations. And, really, those expectations! Those collective hopes for football deliverance — a burden bulkier […]
