The Cleveland Browns are also helping in the annual event
The students Mayfield Middle School have teamed up to support one of their teachers and others like her who are fighting against cancer. Friday, April 26, seventh and eight graders will be cutting and shaving their hair so they can donate it to the Beautiful Lengths collection center in Strongsville. Additionally, the students have collected about $2,000 in donations for the American Cancer Society. Students have been raising funds and donating their hair for the last three years. The event was organized and created by teacher Adam Yasenosky. However, this year the Beautiful Lengths collection has a special meaning. Friday's event is dedicated to middle school teacher Amy Miller, who was diagnosed with breast cancer in September and has …

The Cleveland Browns have sold the naming rights to their stadium. What do you think about the new name?
Cleveland Browns Stadium is no more. From now on, fans will watch Cleveland football games at FirstEnergy Stadium. On Tuesday afternoon, Browns owner Jimmy Haslem announced that Akron-based FirstEnergy Corporation was awarded the naming rights to the football stadium. It is the first time in franchise history that the Browns stadium has a corporate name, joining the ranks of other NFL teams who have done the same, according to The Plain Dealer. They reported that no details of the agreement between the two parties were disclosed. What do you think of the new stadium name? What would you name it?

While he wasn't even on most people's radar, Rob Chudzinski is starting off strong as the new Cleveland Browns head coach.
As I was reclining in my La-Z-Boy late Thursday night, my phone went off with an alert from ESPN. "Browns hire Panthers offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski as head coach." Wait, what? Shocked. Flabbergasted. Disappointed. Those words describe my feelings about this news. I didn't understand where this even came from and why they would bring a fired Browns offensive coordinator back as the head coach four years later. I was prepared for another few years of losing football and yet another coaching search. Now, less than 24 hours later, I'm singing a different tune. After today's press conference in Cleveland, I'm much more optimistic that Chudzinski (more affectionately known as "Chud") might be a good man to lead this team. "We're going …

The Carolina Panthers offensive coordinator is now the head coach of the Cleveland Browns.
Many Cleveland Browns fans were left scratching their heads Thursday night as the team announced the hiring of Rob Chudzinski as head coach. Chudzinksi was the offensive coordinator for the Carolina Panthers for the past two years and was an assistant coach with the Browns twice with stints in 2004 and 2007, according to ESPN.com. With Chudzinkski as the new head coach, sources say he will bring former San Diego Chargers head coach Norv Turner with him as the offensive coordinator, The Plain Dealer reports. Turner was fired by the Chargers after the season ended. This is a dream job for the new coach, who grew up a die-hard Browns fan in Toledo and followed the team as a kid. Many fans are wondering what happened to the big names after …

With Chip Kelly off the board, where will Jimmy Haslam and Joe Banner go next?
Around this time last week, I wasn't very high on Chip Kelly becoming the Cleveland Browns next head coach. Yet somehow I spent too many moments of my weekend checking Twitter and ESPN to see if Kelly chose mashed or baked potatoes for his steak dinners with the Browns and Philadelphia Eagles. Finally, on Sunday The Plain Dealer reported the Browns "walked away" because Kelly wouldn't likely leave the University of Oregon. Sure. I believe it. Just like the nerd in high school who told everyone he just didn't think taking the homecoming queen to prom wasn't going to work out. She didn't say no; he just didn't think it was a good idea. No matter what Chip Kelly will stay in Oregon and Cleveland is back to square one. Many names are being …

After Pat Shurmur's firing, I let my mind wander about who could be the next head coach. Here's what I came up with.
I called for Shurmer's firing last season, and while it took an extra year, it finally happened. On Monday the Cleveland Browns let go of Head Coach Pat Shurmer, along with General Manager Tom Heckert. To be honest, I do feel bad for Shurmer. He was put in a tough spot. He came in with no time to work with his team due to the lockout and because, well, it is the Cleveland Browns we're talking about; no coach comes in without something going terribly wrong. Still, it did not seem like Shurmer was a good fit for the team and the city. And his putrid play-calling didn't help him much. Let's be real here: If you have eight yards for a first down, don't throw a two-yard crossing route! Alas, Browns fans are looking to the future, yet again, …

It has been reported today that the Cleveland Browns' head coach and General Manager Tom Heckert have been fired on Monday.
We all saw it coming after the Cleveland Browns 24-10 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday, but it was confirmed on Monday: Head Coach Pat Shurmer and General Manager Tom Heckert are gone. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported through Twitter Monday morning that both had been fired after a less-than-stellar 5-11 season. Shurmer had a dismal 9-23 record over his first two seasons as the head coach. He took the position in 2011. Heckert was hired in 2010. With Shurmur out the door, the Browns will begin their search for a new head coach immediately. The Plain Dealer reports some names in the running are University of Oregon coach Chip Kelly, Penn State's Bill O'Brien, Indianapolis Colts offensive coordinator and interim head coach Bruce Arians and…

Josh Cribbs used profanity in a Tweet after seeing fans bash the Browns after the 34-12 loss to the Denver Broncos. The Plain Dealer reported that he later deleted the tweet.
Everybody likes to vent and after Sunday's loss to the Denver Broncos, Cleveland Browns fans weren't alone in the habit. The fans were especially critical of Cleveland Browns Wide Receiver Josh Cribbs after a fumble and a penalty. Cribbs had a few words to share in response on Twitter. The Plain Dealer reported that Cribbs tweeted from his @JoshCribbs16 account, "I see all the negativity on twitter after I gave my life to this (stuff)," he Tweeted. "So 2 all u who are against me (Expletive) all y'all. I'm still gonna do me!"
