While I admit it is certainly easy to focus on the negatives, a comprehensive view of the "Braylon Edwards Era" shows that the controversial reciever also had many positive moments. (Let's not fail to give Braylon credit for his performance in the 5 hour energy commercial...) Join me for one last trip down memory lane, remembering the ups and downs of the Braylon Edwards Era in Cleveland...Begin Slideshow
Many fans ofáBrady Quinnáare extremelyáfrustrated witháBrowns coach Eric Mangini's decision to bench the struggling quarterback. While some have unwillingly accepted the move, many have threatened to abandon the Browns. These immature "fans" have shown their true colors and have proven that they were never truly Browns fans at all. Many of these "fans"áare likely too focused on Brady's appearance to realize how terribly he has performed on the field this season. These "fans" are ...

Derek Anderson Gives Browns Struggling Offense Hope

Posted: 4th October 2009 by Michael Timmons in NFL
Going into the Bengals game, many hopeless critics had written the Browns off for this season. For much of the last week, they have repeatedly declared that Cleveland had become the laughing stock of the NFL.

Tribe Has Options With Vacant Manager Position

Posted: 30th September 2009 by Michael Timmons in MLB
Eric Wedgeáinherited aáyoung and talented baseball team seven years ago when he took over as manger of the Tribe.

DespiteáMark ShapiroÆsáability to supply Wedge withátalented baseball players, sustained success was never achieved throughout Wedge's tenure as ...

Browns Fans Need To Remember Rule 76: No Excuses, Play Like a Champion

Posted: 30th September 2009 by Michael Timmons in NFL
While listening to the excuses pile up for the Browns lack of success this season, I remember a situation in the 2005 Movie, "Wedding Crashers". John Beckwith blames Jeremy Grey for his own mistake he made, but Jeremy responds by reciting Rule 76 of Chaz Reinhold's sacred rules of wedding crashing, declaring there are "no excuses, play like a champion". Lately there have been way too many excuses made in Cleveland. Fans ...

If Quinn’s First Game Is Any Indication, Browns Are In For Long Season

Posted: 13th September 2009 by Michael Timmons in NFL
While I do realize that this was only one game, Brady Quinn's performance in the Browns 34-20 loss to the Vikings earlier today certainly didn't give me much reason to hope for this season. Evaluating Quinn's performance today, it was very apparent that he was handcuffed by conservative play calling in the first half. It was working though because the defense was playing well, the special teams generated some points, and the Browns entered halftime ...
