    Rumor has it Rob Chudzinski (sic) will be fired as Browns coach after today's loss to Pittsburgh. IMHO, it's Lombardi and Banner that ought to be fired. Just saying. Five Pro-Bowler's plus one alternate, and an abysmal record...this tells me it's not the coach, it's the player personnel he was given to work with. Perhaps the Browns really could re-build, like KC did, but not if there is absolutely no stability to the program, and we have "back-stabbing crap-weasels" in charge of the draft/front office (quote from a friend - sums it up, check the history in C-town!)...

    People always throw out weird stuff surrounding their death ("When I die I want blah blah blah") but you rarely see people follow through on it. Not Scott E. Entsminger, a Browns fan who died at the age of 55 on July 4. Entsminger "was an accomplished musician, loved playing the guitar and was a member of the Old Fogies Band." He was also, per his obituary in the Columbus Dispatch, a "lifelong Cleveland Browns fan and season ticket holder."

    Ausar Walcott may not be as famous as Aaron Hernandez, but he’s in a lot of trouble, too. The Cleveland Browns’ rookie linebacker turned himself in to Passaic (N.J.) police on Tuesday night to face charges of attempted murder. Walcott, who is from Hackensack, allegedly punched Derrick Jones, 24, in the head outside The Palace Gentleman’s Club early on Sunday morning. Jones, who lives in Manhattan, was rushed to Harlem Hospital Center. Jones remained hospitalized and in critical condition on Wednesday, authorities said.

    The Cleveland Browns' 34-27 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals Sunday carried a lot of lessons for this young team, some positive and others maddeningly predictable. The Browns' two key rookies, QB Brandon Weeden and RB Trent Richardson, showed marked improvement in their second outing, giving a much-needed boost to an offense that floundered last week against Philadelphia. But the absence of CB Joe Haden on the defense allowed the Bengals to pick on the Browns' young secondary. Combined with mental lapses, poor tackling and heavy penalties, the Browns just couldn't keep up. Here are five lessons from the Week 2...

    Today the Cleveland Plain Dealer announced the resignation of Connie Schultz, wife of Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH). Schultz had come under fire recently for attending a Tea Party rally near Cleveland at which her husband’s likely opponent in 2012, Ohio Treasurer Josh Mandel, was a featured speaker. Schultz was spotted videotaping Mandel’s speech, but she conspicuously neglected to mention in her article that Mandel was even at the rally. (Read the details in my previous diary). Once news about Schultz’s covert-op became known, the Pulitzer prize winning journalist and 18-year veteran of the Plain Dealer issued a breathless apology, claiming...

The stories are part of a campaign narrative of frugality. The Democratic nominee wants voters to remember that when they consider whether to send him back to the governor's office as California faces a $19 billion budget deficit, an unemployment rate above 12 percent...

The rally was held to protest a draft constitution the country will vote on in August. The country's president and prime minister support it, but several prominent political leaders do not. Prime Minister Raila Odinga said that officials don't know the cause of the blasts but that they wounded 75 people. Dr. Charles Kabetu of Kenya's national hospital said five people had died.

Rogers, who had been at the team's suburban training facility in recent days, was stopped at a security checkpoint when officials spotted a loaded .45-caliber hand gun in his carry-on luggage, police said in a statement.

The Broncos acquired the former first-round draft pick from the Cleveland Browns for fullback Peyton Hillis, a 2011 sixth-round draft pick and a conditional pick in 2012. The teams announced the trade Sunday and said the deal is pending physicals. Ostensibly, Quinn will compete with Kyle Orton(notes) for the Broncos’ starting job, although coach Josh McDaniels was unavailable Sunday to comment on the trade, according to a team spokesman. Quinn’s departure comes one day after the Browns agreed to...

    Josh Cribbs of the Cleveland Browns has returned two kickoffs for touchdowns against Kansas City, breaking and then extending the NFL career record. After his 100-yard return in the first quarter broke the league record, the 6-foot-1, 215-pound veteran sped 103 yards in the second quarter. His first return of the day was the seventh of his five-year career and broke the record he had shared with five others. On that one, he broke free from at least six players who got their hand on him. In his second, he took the ball 3 yards deep in the end zone,...

    The Cleveland Browns fired coach Romeo Crennel and General Manager Phil Savage after ending the season with a six-game losing streak. The Browns slumped to 4-12 this season -- their fifth losing season in six years -- after going 10-6 in 2007. They didn’t score an offensive touchdown during their season-ending skid and finished in last place in the American Football Conference’s North Division. Crennel had a 24-40 record in four National Football League seasons since joining the Browns, who haven’t won a playoff game since 1994, when Bill Belichick was coach. Savage took over as the Browns’ GM and...

They will be wearing those socks again on Monday, with their traditional white jerseys and orange helmets, and also the black shoes they started wearing again in 2006. The team had the brown pants created as an option for their away uniform when they integrated the...

Jamal Lewis plowed for 163 yards and Phil Dawson somehow kicked two field goals through harsh, wintry winds as the surprising Browns improved their postseason chances with an 8-0 win over the Buffalo Bills on Sunday. In blizzard-like conditions better suited for the Iditarod sled-dog race, the Browns (9-5), who never figured to be playing meaningful games in December when the season started, picked up one of their biggest wins since returning as an expansion franchise in 1999.

He calls them seeds and threw a couple of seeds to Kellen. He threaded it through some coverage and the ball was just right there. Kellen just had to stick his hands out."

    The Browns' 33-30 overtime win Sunday was proof the ball is now bouncing their way. A crushing, heartbreaking defeat to the rival Baltimore Ravens on Sunday was averted when a controversial, game-tying field goal by Phil Dawson at the end of regulation took a crazy bounce. The 51-yard kick into the wind glanced off the left upright and bounced off a metal support behind the crossbar. The ball then was ejected forward through the goalposts. It looked like a blocked shot in basketball. One field official immediately signaled the kick no good, and the Ravens danced off the field with...

Old pipes in Cleveland's water system are largely to blame, city and stadium officials said Wednesday. Iron deposits flaked off the inside of the pipes and clogged toilet valves, causing a 160,000-gallon holding tank -- necessary for when thousands of fans go to the restrooms at halftime -- to overflow.

The Browns are holed up in their Plainfield, N.H., home and have threatened violence against federal officials if marshals come to arrest them. They were convicted of an elaborate scheme to hide millions of dollars in income. Their protest has become a rallying cry for anti-tax activists and militia members.

Luna, 33, was convicted after a 14-day trial in Cook County Criminal Court that repeatedly told—and showed—how the victims were found shot and stuffed in a cooler and freezer."This is...

Unable to reach a deal to remain in Baltimore, the free agent running back signed a one-year deal on Wednesday with Cleveland, the team he blistered for an NFL single-game record 295 yards in 2003. Lewis was released last week in a salary-cap move by the Ravens, who elected not to pay their career rushing leader a $5 million roster bonus. He'll now join the Browns, Baltimore's AFC North rival, who were last in the league in rushing in 2006.

    The Browns looked in their own back yard to bolster the team on a frenzied first day of free agency. They signed two-time Pro Bowl guard/center LeCharles Bentley of St. Ignatius and Ohio State, and receiver Joe Jurevicius of Mentor's Lake Catholic High - and were finalizing a deal for punter Dave Zastudil of Bay Village, who visited Saturday and had dinner with team officials. They also signed former Falcons left tackle Kevin Shaffer to replace L.J. Shelton. "We definitely wanted to jump out early, and we feel like we helped ourselves, especially on the offensive line," said Browns General...

    MARINE CORPS BASE QUANTICO, Va. (Feb. 2, 2006) -- A few dozen combat-wounded leathernecks recovering in National Capital Region hospitals are bound for Detroit to attend the biggest sports event of the year. The Cleveland Browns organization, in unity with the National Football League, has donated 50 Super Bowl tickets to Marine veterans who received combat injuries while serving in Iraq or Afghanistan. The block of tickets, which has a street value of nearly $250,000, was given to Manpower and Reserve Affairs to be disseminated to the Marines in the region who meet the medical criteria for attending to the...

    CLEVELAND (AP) -- Sudden turmoil and rumors twisting around the Cleveland Browns led to something factual: their first division win. Dennis Northcutt's 62-yard punt return for a touchdown helped the Browns close a tumultuous final weekend Sunday with a 20-16 win over the Baltimore Ravens, who finished 0-8 on the road. Earlier this season, Northcutt twice brought back punts for TDs only to have them nullified by penalties. But after his third-quarter jaunt, when he reversed field and picked up some blocks, Northcutt checked to be certain there were no penalty flags and waved his arms like an official....

About six minutes into the fourth quarter of Saturday's Steelers-Browns game, the fan jumped a railing and sprinted onto the field at Cleveland Browns Stadium. With his pants falling down, the man jumped around, waved his hands in the air and moved toward Pittsburgh's bench -- until James Harrison snatched him from...

    MOSCOW. (RIA Novosti political commentator Peter Lavelle) - For some reason a subterranean belief persists among Russia-watchers and members of the media that the Russian electorate remains enamored with the political extremes of the old Communist left and the seemingly resurgent ultra-nationalist right. A closer look proves the opposite. The majority of voters have supported the Kremlin’s middle-of-the-road “party of power” and is set to do so for some time to come. The Communist Party of the Russian Federation (KPRF) and the so-called ultra-nationalist Liberal Democratic Party of Russia (LDPR) led by Vladimir Zhirinovsky have declined relative to other parties...

    CLEVELAND (AP) -- In a matter of seconds, Trent Dilfer passed a career milestone and turned another dull Sunday into a rare, exciting home win for the Cleveland Browns. Dilfer connected with wide receiver Antonio Bryant for two touchdowns in a 38-second span late in the fourth quarter as Cleveland rallied to a 20-10 victory over the sputtering Chicago Bears. With the Browns (2-2) trailing 10-6, Dilfer, making his 100th career start, hit Bryant for a 33-yard TD with 3:02 left. The scoring strike was also the 33-year-old Dilfer's 100th career TD pass, and five plays later, he got No....

    A small town in Indiana and a brief filed saying that Roe v. Wade was wrongly decided are entirely positive signs on first inspection, but the second reveals only a leaning and not a falling off on one side or the other. This is, of course, by White House design for the public understanding of Judge Roberts. Bush has exhibited his recurrent traits and examining G.W. Bush right now is the only way to know what really is in the heart of Judge Roberts. Roberts is deliberately without much record. He is deliberately congenial and with friends all around. He...
