So…We’re Not Alone With DB Woes

It’s a fairly slow news day today if you couldn’t tell.  The Browns are coming up on a bye week, the Indians are d-u-n, and the Cavaliers are just getting underway.  But that doesn’t stop us from perusing other teams. Hamza Abdullah, Tyron Brackenridge, Courtney Bryan, Therrian Fontenot, Nick Graham, Terrence Holt, Daren Stone, and

Worried About Camp Randall?

In talking to a few of my closer friends, not many are feeling too good about this weekend’s game against Wisconsin.  Not that we can blame them much, as we did have a poll not all that long ago that listed this upcoming game as one of the toughest on our schedule. Plus, after this

Getting To Know Mo…

Cavalier training camp generally doesn’t get a lot of attention. Playoff baseball certainly steals the spotlight when the Indians are in. The Browns always get the most attention in town, and usually aren’t writing off the season quite yet. But this year is different. Mostly because the Cavs enter camp with a host of players

Damon Jones Asked To Stay Home

Apparently the self-glossed “best shooter in the NBA” will not be needed in Milwaukee this season after being a part of the trade that brought Mo Williams to the Cavaliers.  Yesterday, Milwaukee announced that they feel it best for all parties involved that Damon Jones and his $4.4 million expiring deal need not report to

Don’t Call It A Comeback!

As we opined yesterday, Cliff Lee turned in a Cy Young-worthy 2008: “Cliff Lee should win the Cy Young after going 22-3 with a 2.54 ERA, leading the AL in both wins and ERA. He added to that a 1.11 WHIP and 170 Ks against only 34 walks (5.00 K/BB). And frankly, when you look

The Intriguing and Injured AFC North

There is no denying the bevy of injuries that the Browns have endured since the start of the season.  Heck, we have not even seen our prized free agent wide receiver (unless you consider street clothes and aviator sunglasses, that is).  Outside linebackers dropping like flies, concussions galore, you name it.  But while we sometimes

Cavs Training Camp Full Of Happy Campers

The one story you’ll read over and over again this year is about the stark contrast between Training Camp 2007 and Training Camp 2008 for the Cleveland Cavaliers. Last year, the Cavs were coming off a hangover of having been swept in the NBA Finals, Sasha Pavlovic was holding out, Anderson Varejao was holding out,

Phil Savage is Killing Me

Phil Savage is on record supporting both Romeo Crennel and Derek Anderson.  Much to my chagrin, Phil Savage has decided that one quarter of football played against one of the worst teams in the NFL, which results in victory, is reason enough to stay the course with this sinking ship. First on Romeo Crennel… “It’s

Bullet Points: Buckeyes 9/29/2008

While the game against Minnesota was not one that was on the top of the “must watch” list, perhaps the more recent play – as opposed to what we saw against USC – can start to stir up some more conversation.  We’ll be heading to Wisconsin this weekend for what will be a very big

Sabathia Carries Brewers in to Playoffs

The Milwaukee Brewers got exactly what they wanted with the acquisition of C.C. Sabathia back in early July.  Needing another arm to compliment Ben Sheets, Sabathia was likely more than the team even anticipated by going 11-2 with an ERA of 1.65 in 17 starts.

Browns Victory Breeds Smiles, Hides Flaws

They say a win is a win. How true. No matter how pathetic the Cleveland Browns looked against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday afternoon, all that will be noted when people look back on this one is that the Browns came away with the win by the final score of 20-12. Forget the atrocious play

Between a RAC and a Hard Place

It has been quite well documented on this site that Romeo Crennel is on the hot seat as coach of the Browns. In fact, it’s not the first season where there have been questions about his coaching, his leadership, or his future with the team. An interesting article about Crennel and his current situation with
