R.I.P. Jacob’s Field (1994-2007)

Progressive Field To Open In 2008 Ok, so it’s still the same beautiful structure. But in what I can only describe as a tragically sad decision, the Cleveland Indians have sold the naming rights to Jacob’s Field to Progressive Insurance. In 2008, the Indians will play their games in….gulp….Progressive Field. Hoynsie has the story in

Savage Signings

Browns GM Says Extensions Coming Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reported today that GM Phil Savage is working on a contract extension for head coach Romeo Crennel (is it just me, or does Mary Kay seem to be much more on the ball than Tony Grossi these days?). There was no mention

Lets Go Bucks!!!

Here’s To Hoping The Senator Can Repeat This Image And Erase Last Year’s Image When I started this blog, I made the very difficult decision to just stick to professional sports.

Give Us Something To Talk About

Dealing With The Quiet Period In Cleveland Sports Lets face reality. You can only say ‘the Cavaliers are a fatally flawed team’ so many different ways. With still a month to go before pitchers and catchers must report for spring training, all is deafeningly quiet on the Indians’ front. The Browns just got knocked out,

New Year For The Browns Too

Browns Look To Build On 2007 To Bring Success In 2008 Well, it’s hard to believe it has come to this. I wasn’t expecting to write this column so soon. I expected the Browns to have at least one game in 2008. But alas, (no) thanks to Jim Sorgi’s shortcomings as a QB, the Browns

The Future Forecast Of The Browns

Looking For Clues To The 2008 Cleveland Browns Ok, first things first….no, I am NOT writing off the 2007 Browns season. I’m still cautiously optimistic in the power of Jim Sorgi to send the Browns into the playoffs (something DA couldn’t do against the NFL’s 25th ranked pass defense). No, I am NOT writing off

Week 16 Recap

Browns Turnover Control Of Their Own Destiny To Tennessee What’s the operative word of the day to describe this game? Debacle? Choke-job? Disgraceful? Unfocused? Unprepared? Lackadaisical?

The Jamal Lewis Question

Jamal Lewis having big season, but does this warrant big money over big years? Jamal Lewis has been everything the Browns were hoping he could be, and then some. The questions over what Jamal had left in the tank coming into this season were fair. After all, despite being young in years, he was old

ROBBED!

Several Browns Players Unjustly Left Off Pro Bowl Roster The NFL has announced the Pro Bowl rosters. In typical Cleveland fashion, key members of the 9-5 Browns team were left off the team.

What A Difference A King Makes

King James Returns To Lift Cavs To Much Needed Victory This team is getting close to being healthy. Last night marked the return of LeBron James (from injury) and Anderson Varejao (from foolishness), and saw the continued inspired play from Larry Hughes (I can’t believe I just said that).
