Well, it happened, The Cleveland Browns finally decided they were done with their 9th coach in 18 years. I think it may have had something to do with his 36 losses, but who am I to speculate. The three wins seemed to be enough for Jimmy Haslam (Owner), there were some reports he wanted changes but not at the head coaching position. In the end, John Dorsey (GM) helped him come to a decision that the best direction for this team was to move on from their head coach. Hue I still love you and let’s just get this out of the way, welcome back to Who Dey Nation.
As of early this morning, the #Browns could have gone one of two ways: Make a change at OC or make a change at head coach. Owner Jimmy Haslam sounded like he wanted to keep Hue Jackson. GM John Dorsey wanted to move on. In the end, they moved on from Hue Jackson.
Moving on, In a bold attempt to reinvent themselves the Browns have named Defensive Coordinator, Gregg Williams as the interim head coach. You may remember this psycho from HBO’s Hard Knocks, where he became a show favorite because of his angry outburst during pretty much every episode. (below is one of my personal favorites). Gregg Williams and Hue Jackson are like oil water when it comes to coaching, which may be the inspiration to his promotion. Hue has always been thought of as a players coach which works for some teams, but the Browns have lacked discipline and direction since they returned to Cleveland in 1999. Williams with a more aggressive approach will attempt to change the misfortunes of one of sports longest running jokes. GOOD LUCK! (LIAM NEESON VOICE)
Today was just like any other Sunday. I had some chili brewing in the slow-cooker while I was waiting on the early NFL games to start and I was already trying to decide which wall to punch a hole through if the Bengals decided to break my heart. The topic of Patrick Mahomes’ voice came up in the Mac Household so I did a Google search to see what gems were out there on the internet with voice-mashups and funny antidotes about the breakout QB’s extremely unique voice.
Pretty normal, tame stuff. No harm, no foul. Then I came across this head-scratcher: Continue reading →
I don’t know about you, but when I heard there was a bunch of free beer to be had when the Browns finally earned their first victory in over 600 days, I expected anarchy the moment the clock struck 0:00. I was looking forward to it because I love watching videos on Twitter of fans destroying their own cities after a big win. Usually it’s for a championship, but a victory over the Jets on a Thursday night is about as close to a Super Bowl as the Browns will get for the foreseeable future.
Browns fans drink in sorrow, they drink in victory every few years, and they have no problem getting rowdy in honor of their beloved football team. That’s why I’m a little disappointed in how civil the opening of the beer fridges were. Check it out for yourself. Continue reading →
The Cleveland Browns are bad. I don’t care what kinda of bump they got in the public’s eye after their mediocre season of Hard Knocks this preseason. Anybody who knows football knows that Cleveland doesn’t have what it takes to be a competitive football team. They don’t have the talent, they don’t have the coaching and they sure as hell don’t have a winning culture. They have coaches going at each other’s necks over who will or won’t be practicing. They have the island of misfit toys filling the meeting rooms across all positions. I’ll still never understand what in the hell Jarvis Landry was thinking when he signed a contract extension after being traded to Cleveland. LSU education for ya. Money talks I guess, even if it means you’re stuck living in a city that is most famously known for it’s river that caught on fire and being the taint stuck between the dickheads in Detroit and assholes in Pittsburgh.
At least they have Josh Gordon, an oasis of talent in the Desert of Suck. Oh wait, no they don’t. They finally decided to cut bait with the talented WR because he was 10 minutes late to the facility with a mysterious hamstring injury that miraculously healed when it was time to report to his new team in Foxborough.

I don’t even know which angle to take on this one. My initial thought on this breaking news was the fact that I’m 6 years younger than Antonio Gates and can’t even comfortably get out of bed in the morning despite not being an NFL tight end. That’s both depressing and impressive. It’s impressive that I can get so sore by being a lethargic blogger and equally impressive that someone that old can still strap it up at such a physical position a weekly basis. Continue reading →
Despite his invaluable scouting report he provided to the Browns on his former Eagles teammates (a report that anyone with NFL Sunday Ticket could have provided) the Browns have decided they’re not in the business of shady….. business… at least when it comes to their players.
I figured this move was coming eventually, mostly because he’d be busy serving time in a white collar prison, but the Browns decided to cut ties with Mychal Kendricks on the same day he was hit with insider trading charges. The questionable part about this move was brought to the forefront by our friends at ProFootballTalk.com Continue reading →
Wait a second… are you telling me a 2x NFL MVP, Super Bowl winning quarterback, Super Bowl MVP, and current starter of the Green Bay Packers didn’t bail on training camp to go to his brother’s birthday party? Wow, I guess some people just don’t have the same values we held back in our day. Continue reading →
