Monday Rumblings

The Cavs are off until Tuesday, but there may be something to report on as rumors circulate about a potential Sam Cassell trade. Not sure these aren’t more than the ‘that would make sense’ variety of rumor. Personally I would welcome Cassell, especially if Hughes was the target. No, huh? Alright. Buckeye land awaits the

Shockwaves!

Browns Fire Defensive Coordinator Tony Grossi has just reported that the Cleveland Browns have fired defensive coordinator Todd Grantham. This is a stunning move that will surely send out shockwaves through the Cleveland Browns community. The Browns finished the season almost dead last (30th) in the NFL in total defense, in a bit of a

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

The First Of Many

Browns O-Lineman Heading To Hawaii The Cleveland Browns’ rookie sensation, left tackle Joe Thomas has been served a bit of justice. Despite being robbed of his rightful spot on the Pro Bowl team by both voters and peers alike, despite being regarded as one of the 2 or 3 best left tackles in the entire

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. It wasn’t that I loved Cleveland sports teams more than my alma mater’s sports teams. Rather, it was an issue of time. I wanted

Chud Staying Put

Browns Extend Offensive Coordinator’s Contract, Chudzinski Declines Ravens’ Interview Offer In what can only be described as a most fortunate turn of events, the Cleveland Browns have given offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski an extension, and Coach Chud has turned down the Baltimore Ravens’ request to interview him for their vacant head coaching position. The story

Forget Derek Anderson and Jamal Lewis…

Without Rob Chudzinski, the Browns are in trouble.   Found this in the Plain Dealer today. Browns offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski will interview for the Baltimore Ravens head-coaching position, General Manager Phil Savage said Thursday. Chudzinski, in his first year with the Browns, helped develop the Cleveland offense into one of the best in the

Jumping On The Coaching Carousel

One coach extending stay, one coach leaving? It hasn’t taken long, but the coaching carousel has begun to spin, and a couple of the Browns coaches are on the ride. According to Mary Kay Cabot of the Plain Dealer, the Ravens will be interviewing Browns offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski for their vacant head coaching position,

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

On the Outside Looking In

The Browns finished the regular season 10-6, and missed out on the post-season on tie-breakers. Good season guys! I refuse to whine about the Colts game. If the Browns would have taken care of their own business they would have never been in that situation. I will say that the NFL should think about this

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 ‘Dawson Bar’

A reader of Patrick MaManamon suggested it, and I’m all for it. I’m not sure how many times it may come up in conversation, but from henceforth, whenever you are referring to the single, curved, pole support of a football goalpost- it shall be named the Dawson Bar. As in the Phil Dawson Bar. While

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

Pro Bowl Snubs Announced

Wow. How Eric Steinbach was left off that roster I’ll never know. Congratulations to Josh Cribbs, who will be the ‘starting’ kick returner for the AFC Pro-Bowl squad, and also to Braylon Edwards who made the roster at WR. Those two are certainly deserving of their first Pro-Bowl appearance. Unfortunately for Cribbs and Edwards, every

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

It’s not over yet…

The Browns survived the storm on Sunday, but let’s hold off on the champagne for now. They say that’s Derek Anderson sliding through the snow to celebrate a Browns’ victory over Buffalo. I see a 3 in there somewhere, so I’ll have to take their word for it. Anderson, who admitted he’d never played a

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
