Five essays on Browns over Ravens.

. There’s no point in hiding from it:  Cheddar Bay is 24-0 in favor of the Browns today. As we know from history this is the worst of warning signs.  We’ll see today is this is a different Browns team — i.e., fulfilling of our hopes (at least for today) — or pretty much the same Browns (or Indians) (or...

Browns beat Saints recap.

Jumplinks to quarter recaps:  First; Second; Third; Fourth. I’m still at a loss for words to describe yesterday’s epic win so I’m just going to live blog it from the game film. Before I dig in, three notes: 1.  The migration to 603brown.com is non-trivial.  We had about a 50% hit rate on moving image files from the old site...

Ten wins. Six reasons why.

Browns preview time. I refuse to believe that they will suck this year.  No.  Nein.  Nyet. Oh yeah I saw the preseason games and oh yeah I’m reading the guys who spent their August (and their last decade of Augusts) watching this team and reporting the familiar “there doesn’t seem to be an offense” reports.  No touchdowns.  Cornerbacks playing 15 yards...
