The BROWNS NOTE PODCAST, Episode 54: 2018 Browns Draft Review

May 2nd, 2018

"I'm gonna get MORE than just SOME." -Baker Mayfield


John Dorsey and his merry band of ex-Packs have staked their claim. Baker Mayfield is the future of the Browns, and that will cause much pretzel-twisting in the Browns media world. Be that as it may, we're here just to talk about the draft in a reasoned, enjoyable fashion. If that happens to be your particular brand of rum, pull up a chair, grab a box of dog biscuits and enjoy as Ryan Burns and Brendan Leister ramble on incessantly but pleasantly about the draft. 2 hours of draft review fun. WOOF!

The Browns Note Podcast, Episode 52: The Case for Josh Rosen with Sen Sogah

April 21st, 2018

We're going OLD SCHOOL for this episode, as the OG FootballSickness voices team up to make a homerish yet persuasive case for Josh Rosen as QB1. Join Ryan Burns and Sen Sogah for a trip through time, a brief celebration of the Dog's Super Bowl experience via his Eagles, and their observations of Josh Rosen's UCLA career. You'll have to dig through some program underachievement bitterness from two UCLA lifers, but if you listen closely you'll hear why we think Rosen is the man. Kick back, grab some MilkBonz and enjoy. WOOF!!

The BROWNS NOTE PODCAST, Episode 51: Matt Waldman & The Case for Lamar Jackson

March 21st, 2018

When a QB dominates the competition for the duration and to the extent that Lamar Jackson did, you expect to at least hear his name in the conversation when the #1 overall pick belongs to the league's most QB-desperate franchise. And yet, nary a word of Lamar Jackson. We're here to fix that. Join Ryan Burns and special guest Matt Waldman as the latter makes the case for Lamar Jackson. If you enjoyed our first run with Matt a couple of weeks ago, you'll love this one. Have a click and a listen. Go Browns...WOOF!!!

The BROWNS NOTE PODCAST, Episode 50: Joe Thomas Retirement/The Case for Sam Darnold

March 20th, 2018

There's so much Browns news, you'd never know it was the offseason. Joe Thomas called it a career after 10,363. The Browns went nuts in free agency. And of course, the QB wars wage on. Join Ryan Burns and Brendan Leister as the latter makes the case for Sam Darnold (and goofs on a stat and gets busted for it). But seriously, the case for Darnold is persuasive. Get comfortable with it. Go Browns...WOOF!

The BROWNS NOTE PODCAST, Episode 49 (Pete Smith): The Case for Baker Mayfield/Trench Report

March 14th, 2018

They're coming fast and furious this pre-draft season. After all, when you have eleventy-billion picks and a lot of needs and a lot of money, the offseason is the time when things are liable to happen that may ultimately be the most exciting of your football 2018.  Such is life as a Browns fan. But we're going to inject a little passion for you. Pete Smith is on this episode to bring the case for one Baker Mayfield as Browns QB of the future. The first in a series of podcasts on each of the QB's, Pete's appearance sets a high bar. In addition to the QB, we dig in with Pete on the recent trades and the status of the Browns in the trenches. This is wall-to-wall goodness on the Browns Note Podcast. Bone up. WOOF!
