Cleveland Browns, NFL -

Alex Smith’s gruesome injury in Washington and the exciting emergence of Lamar Jackson in Baltimore weren’t the only surprises this weekend in the NFL. Adam Schefter had fans doing a double take when he reported that a league source told ESPN the Cleveland Browns were interested in interviewing former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice for […]

Cleveland Browns, Hue Jackson, NFL -

Then there were seven. After the Cleveland Browns fired Hue Jackson on Monday, the NFL has only seven head coaches of color remaining. That’s out of 32 positions, which is bad news for a league that supposedly has strived to increase the number of minorities in its key decision-making positions from the field to the […]

1. Cliché as this will be, I’m starting with the quite obvious ability to walk around with that drank. Sure, Bourbon Street smells like Hurl of Christmas Past and you’re likely to see a person laid out face down in the street, not dead, just passed out from all of the Everclear 151 and sugar mixtures.

Cleveland Browns, Hue Jackson, NFL -

ARLINGTON, Texas — If Hue Jackson winds up having a long run as the head coach of the Cleveland Browns, we’ll look back at the 2018 NFL draft as his springboard to stability. There’s really no other way to look at it. When you’re 1-31 in two years on the job, including leading a squad […]

Cleveland Browns, Hue Jackson, NFL, Tyrod Taylor -

BEREA, Ohio – Up next at quarterback for the Cleveland Browns, Tyrod Taylor. The Browns last week traded for the former Buffalo Bills signal-caller, hoping he’ll at least slow down their long-spinning quarterback carousel. Currently atop the Browns’ depth chart, Taylor is slated to become their 29th starting passer since the 1999 season. That’s a […]

Cleveland Browns, Hue Jackson, NFL -

One has to look hard to find anything positive in the winless Cleveland Browns’ season, which mercifully ended Sunday after a 28-24 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. Cleveland joined the 2008 Detroit Lions as the only NFL teams to finish 0-16. The Browns were a complete mess from start to finish. Former general manager Sashi […]

He was let go Thursday after an absolutely brutal two-year stretch in charge of the team’s personnel department.

All 22, Cleveland Browns, DeShone Kizer, NFL -

This year, like last year, I decided to break down the Week 1 coaches film and evaluate a rookie quarterback’s first start. Predictably, the Cleveland Browns lost, but I was awed by their rookie quarterback DeShone Kizer. According to Browns head coach Hue Jackson, hope is what Kizer gives the Browns. Based on the game […]
