Browns Bullet Points – Free Agency, Beanie, Combine, Trade Market and More

Well, after a relatively unproductive week of writing, I decided to put together some quickie Browns notes as we are in the heart of the NFL off-season.  We have draft evaluations, free agency rumors, trade winds and other bits of information that will be totally forgotten this time next year if the Browns don’t win

NFL Trade Rumors: What is Kellen Winslow Worth?

Since the Browns’ latest reboot with Eric Mangini and George Kokinis running the show, they have harped on one main theme.  They are looking for team-first guys with good attitudes.  Now there could be a whole host of arguments on both sides whether or not Kellen Winslow fits into that category or not.  I for

Could Cavs Land Antawn Jamison for Wally Szczerbiak?

The trade deadline is coming this Thursday if you didn’t know.  The Cavs’ activity level this week still remains to be seen.  They are still claiming to be satisfied with the current roster.  At the same time, I don’t really think that Danny Ferry’s phone bill is going to be reasonable this month.  I am

The Truth Hurts for Mike Brown

Mike Brown was a little less than pleased following two whistles in 0.8 seconds to end the game against the Indiana Pacers.  Well, it was really only the second call that had Brown up in arms.  He never did settle himself down before talking to the press about Joey Crawford and his seemingly pre-determined makeup

Cavs vs. Suns – Open Thread Etc.

The Cavs and Suns will go at it tonight at the Q.  The Cavs are coming off of a tough night in Indy where they dropped a game to the Pacers.  Rock and I may not agree on the last two calls of the game, but we both agreed on the fact that the Cavs

Lebron’s Complaining vs. Bad Referees

I am having trouble reconciling some differing feelings on Lebron James.  He is a superstar.  He is a Clevelander superstar.  I think he should get the benefit of the doubt on calls from referees because he is such a physical player.  It is a fact that more times than not, in order to stop him

Are You Still Shocked? Really?

Yesterday when the A-Rod steroid story broke, my immediate response was surprise.  That lasted a second and then it occurred to me.  I am not shocked by any of these stories anymore.  In fact, I don’t know why anyone would be.  I guess I would be shocked if I found out that Jamey Carroll was

Hines Ward and His Super Bowl Blood Treatment

Hines Ward was an integral part of Pittsburgh’s victory in the Super Bowl over the Arizona Cardinals.  This came a couple weeks after the Ravens tried to break him in half on a tackle after a catch.  In that tackle, Ward reportedly sprained his medial collateral ligament and underwent treatment so that he could play

Cavs Beat Bosh and Raptors

Cavaliers 101, Raptors 83 (Box) The Cavs had an awful third quarter last night.  They were outscored 26-15 in that frame as Toronto cut the Cavalier lead to 8.  Starting the 4th quarter the Cavs were leading 74-66 and we were worried.  Rock and I were twittering about it along with some WFNY regulars and it

Carl Pavano Addresses Joe Torre

Carl Pavano is looking to resurrect his professional baseball career in Cleveland.  Most Clevelanders don’t know (or care) how deep the wreckage was in New York before Pavano left.  Just in case Pavano had slipped under anyone’s radar, Joe Torre’s new book aims to make sure you don’t miss it.  According to Torre and other

John Rocker Hates Another Minority (Allegedly)

Congratulations go out to all the Jewish readers of WFNY.  Apparently you too can now be added to the list of people that John Rocker has ill will toward.  And for all you Indians fans out there, do you feel as badly as I do for giving Rocker a standing ovation on his first trip

Delonte West Back Before Break?

While the Cavs have played reasonably well since Delonte West broke his wrist at Chicago on January 15th, they would certainly do well to get him back on the court sooner rather than later.  His perimeter defense and mid-range scoring abilities are un-mirrored by any other players on the Cavs’ roster.  The Cavs have won

McDyess Will “Live With” Pistons Preference

Yesterday after the Cavs mounted their late-game comeback to beat the Pistons in Detroit Auburn Hills, Antonio McDyess was talking.  First he was talking about the game that just happened. “If we keep playing like this, we’re going to be an under-.500 team, and we’ll be struggling to make the playoffs,” said Pistons forward Antonio

Sunday and A Very Very Open Thread: Cavs and Cards

Good afternoon folks.  So, if you are watching the Cavs game then this is a really really late open thread.  If you are gearing up for “The Big Game” tonight, then it is a really early open thread.  A lot of the WFNY guys are popular in social circles and won’t be available to post

Tony Grossi Gets First “Interview” With Phil Savage

Tony Grossi was apologizing for not getting more out of Phil Savage when he talked to him this week at the Super Bowl media center.  While Savage put a lot of “no comment” type answers together in a row, I did find this one quote to be a bit of a gem. Me: “You had to

Mo Williams Carries Cavaliers Over Kings

Cavaliers 117 – Kings 110 (box) And the beat goes on with the Cavaliers.  First Ilgauskas goes down.  Then Delonte West follows suit.  Even WFNY writers couldn’t quite come to grips with how the team was going to compete without two of its starters. Last night, deep in the Q (shoutout A.C.) the Cavaliers played

McCreight Out, Kokinis Still Not In, James Harris On the Way?

It seems as if a lot of false deadlines have passed in the media.  First potential general manager George Kokinis could have been named “as soon as” last Monday.  Which then became “as soon as” Friday, which is now becoming “as soon as” Saturday.  And yet, there is still plenty of activity as T.J.

Dear Braylon Edwards

Boy, that escalated quickly… I mean, that really got out of hand fast.  First, you started dropping passes.  Then we started booing you and making fun of you.  Then we even started mocking your commercial endeavors like 5 hour energy.  Then you yelled at us for hating you because you were from Michigan and claimed
