This is the dawning of the age of Barkevious


The Browns are about to get their first-round pick back on the field.

According to Ed Werder of ESPN, outside linebacker Barkevious Mingo has been medically cleared for contact, and is expected to practice and play this week.

Mingo missed the opener after suffering a bruised lung on Aug. 15 in a preseason game.

He has done some degree of conditioning work in the view of reporters, but hasn’t been involved in anything resembling contact.

Getting back to work today, and getting through practice without any complications, would be a good sign he’s ready to face the Ravens Sunday.

    Bravo, well done title.

    Good news for us Browns fans. If Rubin can play this DEF can be dangerous this week. The depth is what Horton needs to effectively run his defensive scheme. Now that doesn’t help the fact that Buster Skrine may be the worst starting CB in the league. Brian Hartline absused Buster last week. If he has another week like that, I fully expect Banner and Lombardi to go out and sign some help there in the secondary.

    C’mon Browns! Lets spoil that ring ceremony for the Ravens

    Bring him on!

    I wonder if he can play RG…

    Brilliant headline. Well done!

    Best headline ever.

    Dawning of the age? Its the Cleveland Browns. How can anything dawn on that team?

    Stay healthy young fella and go to a real team once your rookie contract is up!

    It’s cLEAVEland so wait 2 weeks… He’ll have a staph infection and that will be the setting of the age of Barkevious.

    What an odd title. Also, he JUST got cleared for contact, and he’s going to be ready to bust skulls in 4 days? Really?

  13. hehateme2 says: Sep 11, 2013 9:09 AM

    Tannehill and Hartline are still playing pitch and catch…

  14. ballboy48 says: Sep 11, 2013 9:09 AM

    Cleveland’s problem isn’t their defense. They held the Dolphins to 20 yds rushing on 23 carries, held Wallace to 15 yds and a catch, had 4 sacks, and an Int. It’s RG that is their issue, and Weeden locking in on his WR.

    Has his Lions-lung-bruise healed? That’s good.

    Bark My Vicious will be a helpful addition but not enough to cover Mike Lombardturd’s failures in his initial draft. Oniel Cousins, aka, ‘the revolving door lineman’ will give the Ravens plenty of chances to crush Brandon’s wee wee. And the lack of any decent CB to play opposite of Haden will create a ‘touchdown highway’ for Wacco!

    Epic headline. Well done!

    Barkevious Mingo–a great name for a great football player. Loved his play at my alma mater—LSU and now with the Browns, looking forward to it.

    Beat the prima donna Flacco that the rat birds flop back east.

  19. salsendardo says: Sep 11, 2013 9:57 AM

    Can he play guard?

  20. clebrowns216 says: Sep 11, 2013 10:38 AM

    This bum Lombardi better be praying that Mingo becomes a dominant player. Otherwise his first draft class is looking extremely weak. Leon McFadden doesnt look ready to contribute any time soon.

    I think Mingo will be a great player. And if he can put on some weight/strength next season then he could be a dominant player.

    Also this game vs the Ravens in the game of the year for the Browns. If they could beat the Ravens in Baltimore, on the day that they celebrate their Super Bowl win, it would be incredible.

    If the offense plays like it did last week, no chance…

    As happy as I am to finally get to see Mingo play, its unfortunate that he doesnt play corner, guard, or receiver. Because our pass rush was one of the few aspects that looked good in week 1.

    best headline ever

    Brandon Weeden is no Peyton Manning. But if Manning could score SEVEN TDs on the Ravens D, then maybe Weeden can connect for two or three. Add in Horton’s swarming Browns D, and you just never know what might happen.

    The ravens offense would be a great warm up for a guy getting his first nfl game action.

    I’m sure the Ravens defense will score more than their offense in this game.

    Could be a long day for the Flacco and his Unibrow this Sunday. Look for the browns offense to bounce back from a horrible week one performance, and the “D” will be teabagging Flacco, and Rice all day. Go Browns!

    The Browns issues are not on the defensive side of the football.

    The near total lack of offensive talent is however.

    If I were a member of the Browns defense I’d be sueing for lack of support.

    The only offensive player the Browns have that is even worth mentioning is Trent Richardson who unfortunately will be old and gray by the time Cleveland gets this pathetic excuse for an offense fixed.

    Get out Trent !!! Get out as quick as you can !!!
