Mangini isn’t giving up on Delhomme

.

BEREA — Seneca Wallace won’t start at quarterback Sunday in Cincinnati. Who will get the call has yet to be determined. Browns coach Eric Mangini said Monday rookie Colt McCoy or veteran Jake Delhomme would face the Bengals. He appears to be leaning toward McCoy, but much depends on the rookie’s left ankle. McCoy was Read More…

Browns notes: Mondays no fun for Mangini

BEREA — Coach Eric Mangini could’ve taken his pick of The Mamas & The Papas (“Monday, Monday”), The Boomtown Rats (“I Don’t Like Mondays”) or The Carpenters (“Rainy Days and Mondays”) to convey his feelings. Mangini was down after a 13-6 loss to the Bills on Sunday. The Browns had won two straight and four Read More…

Browns notes: Delhomme struggles to get anything going

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — Browns quarterback Jake Delhomme gave his critics even more fodder Sunday afternoon.

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — The snow never came. Neither did a Browns touchdown. Or a Browns victory. The 2010 edition of the Browns is difficult to figure. Much like the mid-December weather on the edge of Lake Erie. Just when the Browns seemed to have momentum — they had won two straight and four of Read More…

1213brianslide

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — For the second year in a row, the Browns and Buffalo Bills played one of the worst NFL games anyone will ever see.

Hillis’ day: Good, bad and ugly

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — Peyton Hillis was in no mood to celebrate. He couldn’t even muster a smile. Hillis became just the ninth Brown to rush for 1,000 yards in a season Sunday on the first drive. He finished with 108 yards and a 5.1 average. All impressive statistics. But the Browns lost 13-6 to Read More…

Browns fall to Bills, 13-6

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. – The Browns’ two-game winning streak is over. The Browns settled for field goals in the first half, didn’t score a touchdown all day and never got in a groove offensively. They also couldn’t stop Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick when necessary. Bills 13, Browns 6. The Bills took a seven-point lead with Read More…

Third-quarter update: Fumbling Browns still down by 4

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. – The Browns entered the fourth quarter down 10-6. They should consider themselves lucky.

Peyton Hillis had two of the fumbles (he lost one in the first half) and Joshua Read More…

Halftime update: Browns trail Bills 10-6

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. – Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick wasn’t too bothered by the rain, leading Buffalo to a 10-6 lead over the Browns at halftime.
