Joe Thomas responds to environmental violations

(Insert dramatic laser sound effects.) “Is Joe Thomas guilty of polluting the earth? We’ll have more on this on the 11 o’clock news!” That’s all I could think of when I saw the AP headline on Joe Thomas that said, “Browns’ Thomas accused of environmental violations.” The state Department of Natural Resources sent the former Wisconsin Badgers standout and seven-time...

Things Johnny Manziel, Browns can do to avoid a bad repeat

Johnny Manziel had arguably the worst game for a rookie quarterback in the 2014 season. His performance agains the Bengals was worse than any Blake Bortles or Zach Mettenberger or Derek Carr performance. Even Tom Savage looked more composed than Manziel. But his struggles aren’t all on him. The playcalling, the poor running game, and an unfamiliarity with his receivers and blocking...

Cleveland Browns Offensive Lineman Joe Thomas Deserves to Be Fined For This

The way fines are doled out in today's NFL is ridiculous, but on some occasions it's actually good that the ability for the league office to hand them out exist. Not when it comes to handing guys $5000 fines for tossing a ball in to the stands (because fans are punks and may fight over it), but when it comes to guys doing dangerous things that the refs don't catch.Like Cleveland...
