Steelers 31, Browns 0: Roethlisberger Hurt, Nothing Else Matters
by November 30, 1999 @ 12:00 am (Category : Uncategorized )

Filed under: Browns, Steelers, AFC NorthMike Tomlin said that no matter what Sunday’s game meant, he was going to play his guys. With just under two minutes to go in the first half of Sunday’s game, that looked like the worst decision of Tomlin’s young coaching career.

When Ben Roethlisberger was slammed to the ground like your three wood after you shank a shot into the woods, the Steelers rosy playoff hopes all of a sudden looked very dim. Byron Leftwich may be one of the best backup quarterbacks in the league, but he’s still someone who has thrown less than 100 passes in the past two years.

The good news is that Roethlisberger seems OK after suffering a concussion and apparently some momentary numbness. After the game, Mike Tomlin said that the Steelers expect him to play in two weeks in the Steelers’ first playoff game. Tomlin and the Steelers may have dodged a disaster.

The bad news is that the injury is another concussion for Roethlisberger. He suffered two concussions in 2006 (one when he took the header into a car and another against the Falcons). The last time he suffered a concussion in a game, he returned one week later to play his worst game as a pro–throwing four interceptions in a loss to the Raiders.

Romeo Crennel Will Talk to Browns Owner Next Week to Try to Save His Job
by @ 12:00 am (Category : Uncategorized )

Dec 27th 2008 9:30AM by Ryan Wilson (author feed)
Filed under: Browns, AFC North, NFL Fans, NFL CoachingMost Browns fans gave up on the 2008 season in late fall and have equally divided their time these last three months between pining for Brady Quinn and Anybody But Romeo. Bill Cowher would be the obvious choice to replace Crennel, but the former Steelers coach-turned-CBS-teevee-personality claims he’s quite content to spend his weekends with Dan, Sterling and Boomer, and the rest of the week following his girls’ basketball careers.

Plus, who knows, maybe Romeo Crennel can sweet talk his way into keeping his job.

Seems unlikely given the preseason hype followed by the 4-11 record. If nothing else, though, Crennel has been granted an audience with owner Randy Lerner sometime next week, which, if nothing else, guarantees he won’t be fired before the team gets on the bus to make the 120-mile trip from Pittsburgh to Cleveland.

So what does Crennel say to save his job? Other than holding Lerner at gunpoint to get assurances (and that hasn’t yet been ruled out), Romeo plans to point to the team’s successes. Should be a short meeting.Continue Reading

Like Everybody Else, Crennel Is Worried That Steelers Will Crush Browns Sunday

Filed under: Browns, Steelers, AFC North, NFL Fans, NFL CoachingRomeo Crennel continues his march to unemployment, in all likelihood, three days from now. But in the meantime, he’s going through the motions, preparing the Browns for their final game of 2008.

Unfortunately (historically, anyway) Cleveland faces Pittsburgh, a team Crennel has yet to beat in seven previous tries. Given that the wheels have fallen off the Browns season and the Steelers are gearing up for a playoff run, there’s not much reason to think Cleveland has a chance Sunday. And this worries Crennel. Well, as much as a meaningless game that precedes the inevitable firing can worry somebody. “I haven’t been able to beat Pittsburgh and that’s discouraging to everybody, myself included,” Crennel said this week. “It seems like we play them close one game and get killed the next game. That’s one of my fears going down this time, [that] we played them a close game this year.” So Crennel is predicting a beatdown, basically. For what it’s worth, Vegas opened with Cleveland getting 10 points, but that was before Bruce Gradkowski was announced as the starting quarterback. He’ll be the fourth Browns QB to start a game this year, which on most other teams, works out to approximately an 11th- or 12th-teamer. Adjust your lines accordingly.Continue Reading

Browns Could Unveil Fourth-String Quarterback Against Steelers Sunday
by @ 12:00 am (Category : Uncategorized )

Dec 22nd 2008 2:25PM by Ryan Wilson (author feed)
Filed under: Browns, Steelers, AFC NorthRomeo Crennel will be a free man in six days. And if yesterday’s emotionless post-game presser is any indication, he’s already accepted his fate. For the sake of professionalism, however, Crennel will feign interest as the Browns prepare for the Steelers in a meaningless Week 17 affair.

Cleveland, 4-11 and fresh off getting shutout courtesy of the mighty Bengals, will face a Pittsburgh team that has already wrapped up a first-round bye. And while the Steelers will probably play backups for most of the afternoon, the Browns have nothing to lose by playing their starters. The ones left standing, anyway.

Tight end Kellen Winslow has missed three games with a high ankle sprain and the quarterback position has been FUBAR for some time. Derek Anderson was benched for Brady Quinn, who promptly broke a bone in his hand and landed on injured reserve. Anderson then blew up his knee, and now third-teamer Ken Dorsey looks iffy for the Sunday finale. Which means more Bruce Gradkowski for everybody!Continue Reading

Brady Quinn and Shaun Smith May or May Not Have Got in a Fight

Filed under: Browns, AFC North, NFL Rumors

There are just a few rules to “Browns Fight Club.”

1.) You do not talk about “Browns Fight Club.”
2.) You talk about “Browns Fight Club.”

After rumors leaved to the always great yesterday about a Brady Quinn and Shaun Smith altercation inside Cleveland camp, head coach Romeo Crennel came out today and played by the rules.
“If it happened, we’re keeping it in house,” Crennel said.
Talk about a clubhouse gone to hell in a hand basket. Cleveland is now a putrid 4-11 after getting shut out by the Bengals on Sunday and have rumors of Skip Bayless’ boy toy getting roughed up by a 325 pound defensive end.

What were these two even talking about? An injured quarterback having words with an inactive defensive player that was called out as quitting on the team a month ago? Strange.
The Channel 3 report said that Smith and Quinn also had a verbal confrontation.
Crennel made it clear that “in a family you always have some disagreements.”
I’m not a psychologist by any stretch of the imagination, but calling the Browns a “family” at this point would be like calling Charles Manson a good babysitter. Not exactly the term you might be searching for.

The Browns face the Steelers next week in the last game of the regular season, so I sure hope this fight news doesn’t affect their chemistry and keep them out of the playoffs.

Braylon Edwards Wants to Help Browns Turn Things Around

Filed under: Browns, AFC North, NFL Fans
On Tuesday Gretz mentioned Browns wideout Braylon Edwards and his struggles with the hometown crowd. Apparently — as Edwards tells it, anyway — the fans don’t like him because he played collegiately at Michigan, and all the boos that are directed in the general vicinity of his hands has nothing to do with it.

Edwards said he’s “very unappreciated … in the eyes of the fans and the city.” You know, because he’s a Wolverine.

Now I can fully understand why Edwards would be frustrated: the Browns, preseason favorites to make it to the playoffs, are 4-10, and he’s had a forgettable go of it in ‘08 after what looked to be a breakout season a year ago. And while he didn’t blurt it out, nobody would blame him if he admitted to entertaining thoughts of playing elsewhere. But he didn’t and he doesn’t.Continue Reading

Braylon Edwards Thinks Browns Fans Don’t Like Him Because He’s a Wolverine

Filed under: Browns, NFL Fans
During the Browns’ 30-10 loss in Philadelphia on Monday night, wide receiver Braylon Edwards hauled in five passes for 102 yards, in what was probably his second best game of the season. A season that has to be considered a disappointment, to say the least, for Edwards and his teammates. He’s not going to come close to the numbers he put up a season ago, and the Browns will probably be happy if they can finish this season with five wins.

Naturally, the loyal fans of Cleveland are a little testy when it comes to their football team these days, and Edwards, along with Romeo Crennel and general manager Phil Savage, are feeling the type anger that can only come from a grown man dressed like an English bulldog.

But, if you ask Edwards why he’s facing a large dose of criticism, it’s because he attended the University of Michigan, arch-rival of Ohio State. Yeah. That’s it, Braylon. I’m sure it has nothing to do with the fact you’ve caught only 38 percent of the passes thrown your direction this season. Bud Shaw of the Cleveland Plain Dealer has the story.Continue Reading

Eagles in Must-Win Situation On 40th Anniversary of Santa Claus Booing Incident
by @ 12:00 am (Category : Uncategorized )

Filed under: Browns, Eagles, NFC East, NFL FansForty years ago today — December 15th, 1968 — is a day that lives on in Philadelphia sports infamy. It was a cold day when a pathetic Eagles team, playing out the final days of the Joe Kuharich era, was getting beaten on their home turf at Franklin Field. And then a makeshift Santa, pulled out of the stands and trotted onto the soppy field, was showered with snowballs and boos.

The rest, as they say … is written about by every sports journalist, blogger, and website commenter from Beantown to Hollywood and every other mediocre sports town in between.

Yes, Kornheiser, they do boo Santa Claus.

The football world will turn their eyes back towards the City of Brotherly Love this evening, as comes to Philadelphia with the Cleveland Browns facing the Philadelphia Eagles at the friendly confines of Lincoln Financial Field.Continue Reading

FanHouse Preview: Browns vs. Eagles

Dec 15th 2008 6:26PM by Chris Burke (author feed)
Filed under: Browns, EaglesBrian Westbrook and Jamal LewisIn a matter of two weeks, Philadelphia’s outlook has completely changed. On Nov. 23, Baltimore absolutely dismantled the Eagles, 36-7 — dropping the Eagles to 5-5-1 overall, 0-2-1 in their last three and to the edge of postseason life.

Then Philly smoked Arizona on Thanksgiving night and followed that win up by beating the Giants in New York. As it stands now, if the Eagles win their final three games (including over Dallas in Week 17), a loss by either Tampa Bay or Atlanta would send Philadelphia to the playoffs.

Cleveland’s outlook is not nearly as optimistic. The Browns have lost three straight — not reaching double digits in any of those games — and are now feeling some heat from Cincinnati for third place in the AFC North.

MNF Live Chat: Browns vs. Eagles

The Eagles are fighting for their playoff lives tonight against a Browns team that gave up on the season sometime around Halloween. That said, if Philly somehow figures out a way to lose to the Romeo Crennel All-Stars, fans might show Andy Reid some brotherly love by chucking a stadium full of shoes in his direction.

Here’s to hoping it doesn’t come to that.

Whatever transpires, we’ll be live-chatting it up. Fun starts at 8:20-ish EST PM unless Walt Coleman overturns it.Continue Reading
