Countdown to free agency…

The free agent signing period begins shortly after midnight tonight, and the Browns figure to be players in that market, with roughly $32 million to spend on free agents and draft picks. Unlike other teams, and the Browns of the past, Phil Savage is quite comfortable taking advantage of the free agency period. Free agents

02/28 Morning Minute: More Minus Than Plus

A few days ago, I said that last night’s Cavaliers contest with the Boston Celtics would be very telling.  And telling it was. Even by outscoring the Celtics 25-17 in the fourth quarter, Cleveland could not overcome a slow start that saw only 16 first quarter points.  In fact, Delonte West was the only starting

The biggest debate in Ohio

Sorry Obama and Hillary, you don’t even have a chance here. The biggest debate in Ohio rages among Browns’ fans about the quarterback position. You won’t hear the ‘candidates’ themselves firing salvos at each other, but their fans certainly will. Check out any of the Cleveland message boards and see for yourself. The board I

02/27 Morning Minute: Redd Light

A few days ago, I was appreciative of the fact that three of our (then) next four games were against opponents that would allow us to get a feel for our new lineup.  And not that I’m making excuses, but I’m sure no one was counting on Zydrunas Ilgauskas missing last night’s game against the

02/25 Morning Minute: Well, That Wasn’t So Bad

It isn’t every day that a Sunday evening game against the Grizzlies would draw as much scrutiny as yesterday’s contest did, but thankfully for those watching at home (as well as those in attendance), the result was a favorable one.  As Rick already discussed, there is plenty of things to be happy about.  There are

02/22 Morning Minute: Will W’s Bring W’s?

 Wow.  What a night to be away from the computer.  In hindsight, it may have been for the better, as it allowed for some digestion of everything that went on with the Cavaliers (and Browns!!) in the last 24 hours. Earlier this week, I mentioned all of the D-named players on our roster without consideration

Lost in the bustle of possible trades…

The Plain Dealer is reporting that the Browns are very close to a deal with Jamal Lewis. The deal is reportedly for two years with an option for a third. Browns GM Phil Savage told a local radio show that he expects this deal to be completed within 24 hours. That is certainly good news for

02/21 Morning Minute: Second Time’s A Charm

If these triple-doubles keep rolling in, one is bound to lead to a win.  While a win over Houston would have been nice, beating a conference rival in Indiana is just what we needed to get back on track after a sub-par finish before the All-Star break.  James put up 31, 14 and 12, but the

More on Brady Quinn

If you haven’t heard (or read) by now, ESPN Page 2 writer LZ Granderson had a an unfortunate story to share from his recent visit of New Orleans.  I say “unfortunate” because while I’m unsure of the surrounding words that were shared, no one deserves to be threatened while simply walking down the street. The

Only A Matter Of Time?

Contract For Derek Anderson Could Be Coming Soon In case you missed it, I saw this on the Plain Dealer’s site this morning. In an article by Mary Kay Cabot, she says that GM Phil Savage feels confident that DA will be signed to a 3 year deal soon. She writes, “Talks have been a

Is There An Answer In Free Agency?

The NFL Offseason: Where Mel Kiper gets more TV air time than the President of the United States and veterans (and their respective agents) are on the prowl for long-term, guaranteed money.  Thankfully, at least for fans of the Cleveland Browns, Phil Savage has resurrected the offense via key free agent additions over the course

02/13 Morning Minute: Brady Quinn’s Escapades

In news that probably won’t go over well regardless of his actual involvement, Brady Quinn’s name has now been linked to an altercation that occurred early on New Year’s Day in Columbus, Ohio. The 9-1-1 call has been posted on Cleveland.com, and the caller is definitely quick to call out Quinn as one of the members in the

Least Valuable Player

Why do we watch the Pro Bowl? It certainly isn’t riveting television. There is very little drama to the game. Fans of good defense have nothing to do for those 3 hours. So why watch? The answer for me, and I’m guessing several of you is to watch my favorite teams’ players. This was the

02/11 Morning Minute: AI, DA, and CC

Could this portion of the schedule be catching up to our Cavaliers?  Smack in the middle of their four-in-five run, the Cavs simply fell flat on their collective face last night, failing to top 20 points in either of the final two periods.  LeBron did his part (30 points in 33 minutes), but Larry Hughes

Yes, today is the day of the Pro Bowl.  Yes, I know that Brett Frave and Tom Brady aren’t playing.  But frankly, I don’t care.  Because Braylon Edwards, Joshua Cribbs, Joe Thomas, Ryan Pontbriand and Derek Anderson are.  I know that the game has lost its luster over the years, but as a Cleveland fan

Could Romeo Crennel Be Suspended?

Like most fans that were thrilled to see the New England Patriots lose the Super Bowl, I had also been pretty keen on the idea of this whole “Spygate” issue dating back to 2001. That was at least until today, when a post by Michael David Smith got me thinking. If all [of “Spygate”] is
