New Head Coach Checklist

The Cleveland Browns have suffered through perennial disappointment. The Miami Dolphins were a promising team heading into the 2015 season, and, once again, failed to live up to potential. Both have hired new coaches. Both have a lot of work to do. Adam Gase and Hue Jackson filled two of the seven coaching vacancies in the NFL. The Dolphins were...

Why the Broncos Can’t Overlook the Banged Up Steelers

Although many key players on the Steelers are injured, the team is still as dangerous as ever

Each Team’s Best and Worst NFL Draft Pick

With 253 players chosen, the NFL draft is officially over. Here is each team's best and worst draft pick. AFC AFC West Denver Broncos Best Pick: Paxton Lynch, Quarterback, Memphis, first round In taking Paxton Lynch, the Broncos have secured their franchise quarterback moving forward. In order to acquire Lynch, the Broncos had to trade up to prevent teams like Dallas and Cleveland from taking...

Will the Cleveland Browns add Spread Offense Concepts?

At the start of 2016, Cleveland Browns owner Jimmy Haslam turned control of the team over to new GM Sashi Brown. Paul DePodesta was then hired as the team's "Chief Strategy Officer". These hirings meant one thing: Cleveland was relying on analytics. As they have since 1999, the Browns needed a quarterback. Cleveland rolled the dice and signed free...

Is Cody Kessler a Promising Draft Pick?

A look at recent Browns history and the performance of USC QB's in the NFL make it seem unlikely.

Will RGIII Help or Hurt the Browns?

I'm not going to lie. After seeing Robert Griffin III play at Baylor, I knew that he could make plays with his legs as well as his arm. Seeing the numbers he put up in college made me believe that he might actually have what it takes to be a professional Quarterback. His rookie season only served to heighten my...

Brian Hartline Released from the Browns

On Monday, the Cleveland Browns released Wide Receiver Brian Hartline after only being with the team for one year. This shows a trend that is likely to continue as the Browns are, yet again, "rebuilding." This rebuilding process involves acquiring young fresh talent and freeing up cap room by releasing veteran players. While still a talented receiver, in his lone season...

The Golden Age of Running Backs Is Now…but Nobody Cares

Stop me if you've heard this one before: the running back position is being devalued in the NFL. It's a common cliché that is a direct result of another NFL cliché: it's a passing league now. Both of these are true statements. In a world where only four running backs are making an average of $7 million or more...

Cody Kessler: The Browns’ Sleeper Pick

The Cleveland Browns definitely had an interesting draft this past April.  A team that has been in desperate need for a franchise quarterback since the Browns relocated back to Cleveland in 1999, seemed to have a good shot at finally getting their guy this past draft. With the number 2 pick, the Browns were guaranteed to get either Jared Goff...

The Browns Emphasis on Offense

Over the past decade or so, I have often found myself watching Browns games and find that they are capable of putting together meaningful drives. However, converting those drives into 7 points is another story. Too many times, Cleveland will drive from deep in their own territory 60-70 yards, only to get stopped and settle for a field goal. I have...
