Ben Roethlisberger: Third Best QB In NFL?

I was glossing over an article written over at RotoWorld, one of the best sites for player news out there today.  I got about five lines down and came to a screeching hault.  When discussing quarterbacks and their ranking on the fantasy world, we have this: 1. Peyton Manning IND 32 – With Clark re-signed

03/18 Morning Minute: The Second Half Strikes Again

Clank! Given the current playoff standings, the Cavaliers really needed a win last night against the Orlando Magic.  But, once again, the second night of a back-to-back stint provided this Cleveland team with a flat second half – and a loss.  Yes, LeBron put up 30, and is 34 points shy of the All-Time scoring leader for the

Browns still not done?

Scott brought to our attention today the signing of DB Gary Baxter to a one year contract. Also signing a one year deal was reserve FB Charles Ali. Ali was a decent special teams player and filled in nicely at times at FB. Word now is that the Browns have missed out on bringing back

One Last Try With Gary Baxter

Gary Baxter is a former second-round draft pick that once amassed back-t0-back seasons of at least 80 tackles with double-digit passes defensed.  In 2003, the cornerback also picked off three passes, had a sack and – most importantly – played in 16 games. He played in the same number of games again in 2004, the year

03/12 Morning Minute: Phil ‘Er Up

With hard work comes reward.  And it should go without saying that the Browns GM Phil Savage has put in many of hours to get this Cleveland football franchise back on the map.  Through solid drafting, free agency acquisitions and (most recently) key trades, Savage has been one of the most aggressive General Managers in

03/11 Morning Minute: Baby Got Back Problems

Perhaps Danny Ferry knew what he was doing when he added a slew of depth to the Cavaliers frontcourt?  Though Cleveland beat Portland last night, 88-80, another big man went down as Ben Wallace sat out the second half with back spasms.  Thankfully, we have this kid named LeBron James who poured in his seventh triple-double on

The Signings Keep On Coming

Browns Add Depth On The Offensive Line A busy offseason means no rest for the weary. Phil Savage appears to be on a steady diet of protein bars and Red Bull, as he continues in what has been the busiest free agency period in recent Browns history. Tonight, Savage addressed the issue of depth on

Brady On The Move?

Opinions of the web site Pro Football Talk may very from person to person.  Some people tend to use their “rumor mill” as gospel, while others realize that they are just that.  Rumors.  I’m a fan of what the guys over at PFT do, but I’m also aware that not everything they put in print

03/07 Morning Minute: That Stings

Man. Talk about taking one on the chin. I’m sure I’m not alone on this one, but I turned this game on in the second quarter. I saw LeBron James nail the three-pointer from the time line to end the half, and then took off to meet a few buddies at a local establishment. By

There’s Only One Randy Lerner

Cleveland Browns Owner Proving Success In Cleveland Is No Fluke When it was announced that Al Lerner would be the principal owner of the returning Cleveland Browns franchise in 1999, there was a definite mixed reaction around Cleveland. Many fans were suspicious of Lerner’s role in moving the franchise from Cleveland to Baltimore in the

Putting Derek Anderson Into Perspective

  Pittsburgh Steelers Sign QB Roethlisberger To NFL’s 7th $100 million Contract If you’ve been reading my posts here for a while, you will know exactly how I have felt about the Derek Anderson contract. To put it bluntly, I was not a fan of it. I still am not overly fond of the idea,

Shaun Rogers…man or myth?

Though the stories about Shaun Rogers haven’t quite reached this level, there are certainly many opinions about one of the recent Cleveland additions. As detailed earlier, ESPN’s Chris Mortensen certainly favors the trade, believing Rogers is a step in the right direction for the Browns. Colin Cowherd on the other hand, disagreed this morning, saying

Remembering Travis Wilson

This weekend, my Blackberry pushed through a notification that the Browns had agreed to terms with wide receiver Donte Stallworth.  Not surprising was the fact that Rock was all over this move, hitting the nail on the head with the fact that the Browns do not need Stallworth to do anything outside of spreading the

Browns’ free agency plans finished?

Phil Savage and his staff have been one of the most active and successful front offices this off season. Rock pointed out that this began with the signing of Jamal Lewis. I will throw my 2 cents out there and say that this off season would not have been as “successful” without the extension of Rob Chudzinski, which began

Then, as free agency opened, the Browns signed quarterback Derek Anderson to a 3 year deal. Next they traded for defensive lineman Corey Williams and defensive lineman Shaun Rogers. Now,

03/01 Morning Minute: In Like A Lion

A great win for the Cavaliers last night, although there were a few points near the end where the game was far from over. A terrific breakdown by Rick, including the ever wonderful +/- numbers that were very telling. Hopefully our big men can use this game to catapult their momentum in the right direction.

Yep. He’ll fit right inWith an extra day in the month of February, Browns GM Phil Savage has wasted no time making a splash.  I mentioned yesterday that the team had significant cap space, and that I hoped that the abundance of space would not be wasted on a long-term Derek Anderson deal.  Well, it
