Week 8: Browns vs. 49ers

And here we go again.  Another week, another chance to waste three hours of my life watching the Browns.  Luckily for me I have absolutely nothing better to do so how much can I really complain?  Well, I won’t complain, but the Yankee Loving Fiancee can… and she does… and then she makes fun of me.  Even still, that doesn’t mean I have to like what I’m watching and over the course of the past 3 games the Browns haven’t made that much of an issue.

This week, the lucky winner of a date with the Cleveland Browns is the San Francisco 49ers.  Heading into the year this was looking like a cake walk game given how bad the 49ers have been the past few years and the issues they’ve had trying to turn Alex Smith into a competent quarterback.  Of course as luck would have it, the Browns don’t get to take on a 1-5 49er’s team.  No, they get a 49ers team that is 5-1 and looks like it might be the best team in the NFC not named the Green Bay Packers.

Making Sense of the Peyton Hillis Situation

The Madden cover changed everything... The Browns never got the memo.

The Madden Curse has once again reared its ugly face.  However, unlike in past years when the curse made its presence known in the form of exploding knees, broken legs, and diminished skills, the curse has taken on a new form in 2011.

The contract dispute.

After a highly successful 2010 season where he gained 1600+ total yards and 13 TD’s, Peyton Hillis was chosen as the Madden 12 cover athlete based on a national, NCAA bracket style voting competition.  Browns fans voted in waves to push Hillis onto the cover, laughing in the face of the curse in the process.  Now, almost 6 months later, Browns fans may be regretting this decision for one simple and undisputable fact.

Peyton Hillis wants to get paid. Continue reading

Reaction! Browns vs. Titans

Well, that was pretty much awful.

I would have typed this up a lot sooner, I was that heated, but that’s the problem… I was that heated up about what I had just witnessed that I needed a good 24 hours to let things settle down.  We’re not quite at 24 hours from the end of the game, but we’re close.  Close enough, in fact, that I can now talk about what happened to the Browns yesterday without flying into a hysterical fit of rage and trying to punch holes into walls with my face.

So with that said… What the hell happened yesterday? Continue reading

Week 4: Titans vs. Browns

Week 4 of the NFL season is upon us and for the first time in a long time the Browns have something to play for.  Since they returned in 1999, we’ve gotten used to the Browns being 0-3 and out of the picture and the AFC.  However, this year is different.  There’s a sense of optimism considering the Browns have staked claim to a 2-1 start and a share of the lead in the AFC North with Pittsburgh and Baltimore.   Continue reading
