Browns-Bills Preview

Mike Pettine received the opportunity to coach the Cleveland Browns after one successful season running the Buffalo Bills' defense. Thanks to an expedited snow thaw, Pettine returns to suburban Buffalo for the first time Sunday as the Browns and Bills each try to improve their playoff chances.

Mike Pettine calls Johnny Manziel incident ‘unfortunate,’ says QB is a ‘true professional’

With the Cleveland Browns presumably still in the process of “gathering additional information in order to gain a complete understanding of what occurred” (per Browns GM Ray Farmer’s statement Monday) regarding a late-night incident involving Johnny Manziel, head coach Mike Pettine nevertheless went to bat for the rookie quarterback. “I’ve had a talk with Johnny,”...Read...

Pettine says Johnny Manziel could play Sunday

When Doug Brown of Scene broke the Johnny Manziel story, it appeared pretty bad for Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel. Much like Ray Farmer said, it’s always disappointing when one of your players finds themselves in the wrong kind of news. But the more we get to know the other party involved in the Manziel fracas, the more it seems like this isn’t much of a Johnny Manziel issue...

Mike Pettine outlasts Mike Smith in bad coaching competition

Sunday’s Cleveland Browns game against the Atlanta Falcons was not a fine showing of head coaching skills. I wondered aloud on Twitter if Falcons coach Mike Smith had been fired yet, and I wasn’t just making a joke. I still like Mike Pettine and his team seems to rally around him and play for him, but he’s had some “rookie” moments to be sure from a head coaching standpoint...

Leading the contending Browns is head coach Mike Pettine, the franchise’s fifth permanent coach since their last playoff appearance and seventh since their last playoff win.

Cleveland Browns Coach Mike Pettine Needs to Make Statement to Kyle Shanahan

Coming off the Cleveland Browns worst loss of the season at home against the Houston Texans, everyone is firing blame around the team. From starting quarterback Brian Hoyer to a porous defensive line, the blame should be divided equally for a performance that reminded fans of four-win seasons of years past. It is time for Mike Pettine to put his foot down with the offense. What is...

Browns find the end zone late, beat Bucs 22-17

Mike Pettine dodged a P.R. bullet today. He nearly had to answer a ton of questions about the clock. That’s all I could think about late in the game as the Browns were chasing the lowly Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Mike Pettine had chosen to waste a bunch of clock to end the first half. He ended up getting a field goal out of it – which he said was his plan – but if the Browns had...

Mike Pettine Proving His Mettle as NFL Head Coach

The circumstances facing the Cleveland Browns in the latter half of the second quarter against Oakland had to have felt strangely familiar for Browns rookie head coach Mike Pettine. With the Browns facing a 4th-and-goal a mere three yards from the Raiders end zone, he must have had post-traumatic flashes back to the team’s loss just a week […] The post Mike Pettine Proving...

Mike Pettine says he ‘can sense’ Johnny Manziel’s frustration

When the Cleveland Browns drafted Johnny Manziel with the 22nd overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, the prevailing wisdom was that the team would slowly bring him along through OTAs and training camps, but sooner rather than later, Manziel would overtake incumbent starting quarterback Brian Hoyer and seize the reigns of the franchise and...Read More The post Mike Pettine says he...

Browns take SEO to new extreme with obscene URL

Hello, this is a published article that will hopefully work. The Cleveland Browns finally got over the hump and defeated their biggest division rival—the Pittsburgh Steelers—by a 31-10 margin on Sunday. And with spirits high, this seemed like a perfect time to share a video interview between Nathan Zegura and head coach Mike Pettine. But they probably should have elected to...
