The Browns Will Win If…

I’m running out of clever leads for this thread each week. I’ll leave it this week with one sentence: will the REAL 2008 Cleveland Browns please stand up, and remain standing? Not so fast, Derek. The Browns are again taking a crack at pulling back to .500 as well as at getting some revenge for

Happy Halloween Cleveland!

Reader Ryan sent a couple pictures of some LeBron James pumpkins that his dad Greg carved. Great job, these look awesome! Halloween is about scaring people though right? It’s about terrifying and shocking kids and stealing their candy? Well, that may have gone a bit too far… Nothing should scare a Cleveland fan quite like

Taking Care of Business at Home

Cavaliers 96, Bobcats 79 (Box Score) – Highlights In his preview, Rock noted that he wanted to see the Cavs really step on the throat of an inferior team at home. Well, despite some rockiness in the third quarter, the Cavs were able to do just that. Thanks to excellent defense (Bobcats shot 33.8% overall),

First 10: It’s Been A Bumpy Ride

Blue Jackets’ head coach Ken Hitchcock likes to break the hockey season up into eight 10-game mini-seasons. He challenges his player to win each 10-game mini-season, and with that in mind I’ve elected to break down the team at each 10-game mile marker along the way. Admittedly, I wasn’t sure I was going to write

Laying It On The Line

With the Baltimore Ravens rolling into town, yours truly decided to take part in some extra curriculars this week.  Over the last few days, I’ve had the utmost pleasure in e-sparring with Dewey Hammond – the Managing Editor over at YardBarker, who also happens to run the site Blogimore Ravens.  (More from him later) While he was

Franklin Gutierrez Wins Fielding Bible Award

After one heck of a preseason, we couldn’t help but be thrilled to see a full year of Franklin Gutierrez in right field.  But once the season started, “Gut” got back to his old ways of swinging at balls in the dirt and striking out more than the “happy” Pedro Cerrano.  And though he finally

Shaun Rogers, the Running Back?

I’m not going to lie.  Last week, when Shaun Rogers found a way to disrupt nearly every play that he was in, I had a slight flashback of William “Refrigerator” Perry.  Thankfully, reading today’s Plain Dealer made me realize that I am not alone.  Tony Grossi had a chance to toss the idea of a

Showing Some Love for Philly, and Wondering What If…

I watched the Phillies win the World Series last night. I was happy for them, and Charlie Manuel. Mostly though, I was happy for their fans. I was thrilled for guys like Dan Levy and Enrico over at the 700 Level. I was happy that the Why Can’t Us idea caught on and they have

Rumor Mill: Joe Jurevicius, Done For Year

Though not far-fetched by any means, ESPN and WTAM are reporting that Browns wide receiver Joe Jurevicius is done for the remainder of the 2008 season.  Jurevicius is eligible to come off of the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list, but will reportedly be placed on the Injured Reserve, ending not only his season, but likely

Rose Bowl, Anyone?

This past Monday, Rick wrote a Buckeye recap that threw in the inquiry of whether Todd Boeckman should have been a part of this past Saturday’s loss to Penn State.  In it, he questioned whether or not Boeckman would have given the Buckeyes a better shot at moving the ball down the field, when Terrell

Sure, Cleveland lost by nearly three scores during the last meeting against the Baltimore Ravens.  However, the fact that they have rolled off three wins (and one game that we all want to forget) since then has made Las Vegas a believer!  That’s right, folks.
