Cleveland Browns coach Mike Pettine needed a sign and he got one on Sunday after winning in Baltimore for the first time since 2007. Battling their division rival, the Browns squeezed out a victory that could change the landscape of their season. “I talked to the guys,” Pettine said, via the Washington Times. “Sometimes you get wins that define things for you, that become a...

Mike Pettine on Joe Haden's toughness: 'Joe wanted to be out there. He wanted to play'

While many are questioning Cleveland Browns cornerback Joe Haden's lack of toughnness after he sat out last week's game against San Diego with a a broken finger and a rib injury, head coach Mike Pettine is coming to his defense, saying the player was indeed hurt enough to warrant an absence. "Joe wanted to be out there. He wanted to play. But just in his assessment, did not want...

Pettine clarifies remarks about Haden sitting out vs. Chargers

After Sunday’s loss to the San Diego Chargers, Browns head coach Mike Pettine said that Joe Haden “made the decision that he didn’t want to go,” which immediately became the talking point du jour. Was Pettine calling Haden out? Was he questioning the cornerback’s toughness or desire to play? Exactly how much of the sky were we to believe was falling? Haden’s teammates...

Browns’ Mike Pettine, Not Ray Farmer, Is On Hot Seat

It would be tedious and shockingly time-consuming to recount every gut-wrenching, last-second defeat the Cleveland Browns have suffered since 1999, to the point that Sunday’s loss to San Diego – in which an offside penalty against Tramon Williams gave the Chargers a second chance at a game-winning field goal – seemed almost expected. Still, dropping […] The post Browns...

Texts from Ray: Week 4

Cleveland Browns general manager Ray Farmer returned to work on Monday after a four-week league-imposed exile that culminated in a last-second, 30-27 loss to the San Diego Chargers. The suspension was a result of text messages Farmer sent the Browns sideline during games in the 2014 season, a violation of the NFL’s electronic device policy. Coach Mike Pettine, who I assume was...

Josh McCown responds to fan chants for Johnny Manziel

    Josh McCown’s stats were pretty but the team’s result was not on Sunday against the Oakland Raiders. McCown threw for 341 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in a 27-20 loss at home in Week 3. McCown was making his first start since being knocked out of a Week 1 loss to the Jets with a concussion, a game in which he was replaced by Johnny Manziel. Though Manziel...

Cleveland Browns loss to Raiders begins with Mike Pettine

Mike Pettine doesn’t make tackles or catch passes, but his fingerprints were all over the Cleveland Browns’ loss at home to the Oakland Raiders. Pettine never shies away from taking responsibility, which is a good thing after a game like the Browns played on Sunday, but his responsibility still must be noted. The Browns didn’t look ready to play on Sunday and wasted the entire...

Johnny Manziel not thrilled about getting benched

The Cleveland Browns are apparently not patient or daring enough to give second-year quarterback Johnny Manziel another chance to start after an impressive Week 2 outing. The status of which quarterback would start for the Browns if Josh McCown got cleared of all concussion symptoms—which he now has—remained in question until Tuesday when head coach Mike Pettine made the decision...

Mike Pettine naming Josh McCown starter over Johnny Manziel is simultaneously right and wrong move

Mike Pettine isn’t a popular man, but the Cleveland Browns coach made the right decision when he named Josh McCown over Johnny Manziel—even though it’s the wrong choice. Cleveland is simultaneously a contender for the AFC North crown and a top-5 pick in the 2016 NFL draft, so Pettine’s every move will be analyzed and criticized. In this case, however, he deserves a small...
