    Do the Browns have to win a Super Bowl to make Deshaun Watson trade a success?

    The Browns will have a new starting quarterback on Sunday as Deshaun Watson takes the field for the first time for his new team going against his old team, the Houston Texans.

    Do they have to win a Super Bowl to make this trade a success? Which players will benefit most from Watson's return? What will the Browns record be over these six games with Watson?
    Lance Reisland also joins the show to break down what this offense will look like with Watson.

    How did Deshaun Watson look on Wednesday? And why didn't he talk?

    How did Deshaun Watson look on Wednesday? And why didn't he talk?

    Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson officially took over the first team reps when the Browns took the practice field on Wednesday in preparation for the Houston Texans. How did he look?
    Ashley Bastock checked in with Dan Labbe on our Thursday Orange and Brown Talk Podcast to talk about what she saw and heard on Wednesday.
    Ashley and Dan also discussed why Watson didn't address the media on Wednesday, which is normally the day the quarterback talks, and why it matters -- at least until he finally does break his silence.
    They also got into what the offense will look like with Watson.
    Dan wraps up the podcast with his Playoff Committee of 1 rankings for the week.

    What's at stake for Browns Kevin Stefanski, Andrew Berry and more with Deshaun Watson's return?

    Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson will be back on the field on Sunday, returning after nearly two years away and starting for the Browns for the first time against his old team, the Houston Texans.
    Mary Kay Cabot, Ashley Bastock and Dan Labbe start Wednesday's podcast by discussing what's at stake for various members of the Browns with Watson taking over at quarterback. They discuss Kevin Stefanski, Andrew Berry, Dee and Jimmy Haslam and Watson.

    Is there pressure on Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski over season's final 6 games? Hey, Mary Kay!

    Is there pressure on Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski over season's final 6 games? Hey, Mary Kay!

    Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski will finally have his franchise quarterback this week when the Browns travel to Houston to take on the Texans. How much pressure is on Stefanski over these final six games?
    One of our Football Insiders asked that very question on our Hey, Mary Kay! edition of the Orange and Brown Talk Podcast. Mary Kay Cabot and Dan Labbe discuss all things Watson and the Browns on Tuesday's show.
    They also discuss Watson and how rusty he might be in his first game back and who he will help elevate when he takes the field.
    Then they get into Jacoby Brissett and where he fits among Browns starting quarterbacks since 1999 and expectations for the season's final six games. Can the Browns still make the playoffs?

    Browns beat Tampa Bay postgame: David Njoku swings the vibes, and how much better will the Browns be now?

    Browns beat Tampa Bay postgame: David Njoku swings the vibes, and how much better will the Browns be now?

    On this postgame Orange and Brown Talk podcast, Doug Lesmerises, Mary Kay Cabot, Dan Labbe, Ashley Bastock and Irie Harris break down the Cleveland Browns' 23-17 overtime win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers that lifted the Browns to 4-7 on the season.
    First, Doug and Mary Kay talk about what went right for the Browns and what the win might do for the team, with Deshaun Watson taking over as the starting quarterback next week.
    Then (14:39), Dan, Ashley and Irie join Doug to talk about whether Kevin Stefanski thought about going for 2 in the final minute of regulation. Then (16:30) the discussion turns to Jacoby Brissett and how he performed Sunday and in his 11 games as the Browns' starting quarterback.
    How much could this win lift the Browns? That's (24:08) the next topic, followed by a brief look at Cade York's missed field goal (33:49).
    Then it's the struggles of the offense in the second half (37:00), followed by David Njoku's huge touchdown catch to save the game and how much it swung the emotions around the Browns this week (46:10).
    Finally, Irie, Ashley and Dan each put a percentage (52:37) on how much better they think the Browns will be with Watson as opposed to Brissett.
    Thanks for listening to the Orange and Brown Talk Podcast.

Great pod when it’s Mary Kay, Dan, and Ashley. The new guy is atrocious. Let him go or you will lose a listener… Also, whatever happened to Scott Patsko?? He was awesome! Also, we need more Doug. Oh yeah, THE NEW GUY IS NOT GOOD

New guy

The new guy is extremely hard to listen to. Makes the podcast no longer a daily listen for me.
