Cleveland Browns: total overhaul coming again this offseason


cleveland-browns-nfl-free-agency

Ah, the Cleveland Browns. No team’s fanbase is more engaged in the NFL Draft, year round, year in, year out, then this team. The Brownies fan club love themselves a good NFL mock draft; even in August. Of course, don’t mock another OT to the Browns because they’ll let you have in the comments section and/or on Twitter.

It’s because the Cleveland Browns are perpetually rebuilding and retooling. It seems like it’s always a makeover year on the shores of Lake Erie.

2016 NFL mock draft 12-8-15


joey-bosa--ohio-state-football

This 2016 NFL mock draft order is loosely based off the order derived at SB Nation. They took current record plus strength of schedule into account. We then made a few changes based on how current injuries could impact the team and their final season record.

Team needs were sometimes, but not always taken into account. We played fast and loose with that because it’s still quite early. So many of these picks are “Best player available.”

Johnny Manziel comes from old money; affecting his motivation?


johnny-manziel-2014-nfl-draft

The Cleveland Browns are probably done with Quarterback Johnny Manziel, and if so, maybe no other NFL team takes a chance on him. Manziel has gotten better on the field lately, and the Browns did the right thing by promoting him to the starting role recently.

Then look what happened once Manziel assumed the QB1 role- more boozing, more trouble.

(Update: Cleveland Browns Head Coach Mike Pettine has named Johnny Manziel the starting quarterback for the rest of the season. We now update this post from Sunday afternoon, in which I made a strong take for Pettine to do exactly that)

Johnny Manziel running out of NFL chances

It might be time to put a quarterback to the Cleveland Browns yet again in your NFL mock drafts. Johnny Manziel’s career in Cleveland could be in its last throes. If and when the Browns part ways with Johnny Manziel, where does he go next? His pro career might be in dire straits.

Another critical year for Cleveland Browns QB position


Johnny Manziel brian hoyer

Brady Quinn. Brandon Weeden. Johnny Manziel. Drafting, and then re-drafting hopefully and potentially franchise QBs is what the Cleveland Browns do. What’s going to happen with Manziel? Is he going to buck the trend?

Or are we going to be talking about the Brownies drafting Connor Cook or Christian Hackenberg next year?

What the Cleveland Browns are getting in Ibraheim Campbell


ibraheim-campbell

Without a doubt, the Cleveland Browns needed to upgrade their secondary this offseason. On day three they found a smart tough kid in Ibraheim Campbell, a Safety from Northwestern. The NU DB was one of the better finds for the Brownies, as it’s a very, very weak safety class.

NU Coach Pat Fitzgerald was on the NFL Network set, doing analyst work today when his own player got drafted.

Former Notre Dame star Brady Quinn attempting comeback

The NFL career of Brady Quinn is no more. potentially alive again.

According to NFL Media’s Dan Hanzus, Quinn has been working with former NFL quarterback Jeff Christensen, who has also worked with the likes of Drew Stanton and Kirk Cousins in the past.

Remember, he never made an official retirement statement. Yes, he made the decision to join Fox Sports last year; hanging up his cleats and picking up a microphone.

Joe Buck talks about his Johnny Manziel critique


JOE BUCK

Joe Buck is an individual that a lot of people seem to have very strong opinions about. I’m not one of them, as I don’t find his work to be very polarizing. Versus Johnny Manziel, who is obviously “love ’em or hate ’em,” for obvious reasons. (Doing things like this is for instance)

You’ll remember back on December 15th, when Manziel made his very first NFL start; and he flopped badly.Joe Buck returned from a commercial break while broadcasting the first quarter of Seattle Seahawks versus San Francisco 49ers (neither team is the Cleveland Browns, the team Manziel plays for) and proceeded to RIP MANZIEL TO PIECES

PHOTO: Johnny Manziel flipping bird to bar hecklers


johnny-manziel-a&m-2014-nfl-mock-draft

Good ol’ TMZ, they really know their click-bait. And is there any better NFL click-bait material than a photo of Cleveland Browns Quarterback Johnny Manziel (likely drunk) and extending his middle finger to (also likely inebriated) hostile bar patrons?

The word is out now, for all opposing NFL teams, this is how you shut Johnny Manziel down. Les Miles and the Bayou Bengals provided the blue-print which the Cincinnati Bengals already copied. Hey, I would be defensive too.

Formula to stop Johnny Manziel; provided by LSU


Johnny-Manziel-cleveland-browns-brian-hoyer

The Johnny Manziel hot takes are flying fast and furious right now, and some of them are truly SCORCHING HOT. And unless Manziel really takes a really long hard look at himself this offseason, his pro career will be over before you know it.

The blue print to stop Johnny Manziel is right there, hiding in plain sight. Les Miles and LSU figured it out in college, and the Cincinnati Bengals copied it. In his only NFL start, Manziel was atrocious, and it’s because the Bengals did their best impression of the Bayou Bengals, and it worked to a tee!
