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? Pretty much any of these words, and any similar ones you might think of pretty much sums up the pathetic performance the Browns put forth against the Bengals in

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. Starting with who DID make it, WR Braylon Edwards is a reserve and KR Josh Cribbs made it. That’s it. Inexplicably left

Live Game Blog

Drastic Times Call For Drastic Measures It’s the biggest game of the year for the Browns, and I haven’t done a live game blog since the ALCS, so I figured it’s about that time. It’s cold there, it’s snowing/sleeting there, it’s warm in my house….but you know what? I wish I was there partying with

CC Is About To Get Paid, Big Time

But Who Is Going To Pay Him? Today, there is going to most likely be a lot hysteria over the release of the Mitchell Report. As for me, I honestly couldn’t care much less about the whole steroid thing. I don’t feel like talking about it. So I decided instead to focus on the Indians’

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). The newly uplifted team responded in

Like Pulling Teeth

Daniel Gibson Becomes The Latest To Miss Time? For sure, this has been the most frustrating Cavaliers season of the LeBron Era. Decimated by injuries and foolish holdouts, the team is in the midst of a 6 game losing streak, with a record of 9-12, and a 4th place position in their own division. For

Using Absurdity To Prove Absurdity

What Do All These Numbers Really Mean? One of the things that my Statistics professor at Ohio State always used to tell us has always really stuck with me.

When Sports Can Really Matter

My grandfather passed away today. I debated back and forth as to whether I wanted to write this post. It initially felt like a hollow gesture. But the more I sat here, the more I felt that it was something I wanted to write. After all, isn’t that what blogs are all about….expressing our feelings

It Was Still Worth It

Brady Quinn Draft Day Deal Still The Right Thing To Do ESPN.com held their first Mock Draft already today. If the season ended today, the Browns would have the 21st overall pick, which would go to Dallas to complete the Brady Quinn deal. To this day the deal still looks brilliant to me. I’m not
