While We’re Waiting: LeBron’s Decision, John Simon, Midfield Woes, and Hardesty

While We’re Waiting is a place to sulk and recover from saddening/maddening losses. If you’ve got some linkage for us, pass it along. We certainly appreciate the help.

LeBron’s gonna decide for LeBron: “Has this process sometimes led to mistakes? Of course it has. But James has no qualms with his belief system. One of his favorite things to say is that he doesn’t have any regrets about his major decisions. If he stays true to himself, he won’t have any regrets about this huge decision, either. Because he’s going to be the one to make it.” [Windhorst, PD]

On Montario Hardesty’s shot this year with the Browns: “The Browns have no regrets about drafting Hardesty. He did not hesitate in minicamp when he rushed through a crack in the line and he demonstrated he can catch the ball in traffic. He worked with the first team, particularly on goal line drills.” [The OBR]

“Why didn’t Benny Feilhaber and Maurice Edu start every game? For the third straight game Feilhaber came on as a second-half substitute, and for the third straight game Feilhaber made a major impact, helping the U.S. get what it needed (a second-half equalizer) when its back was against the wall. Think about this: If we were to borrow a statistic common to ice hockey, Feilhaber’s plus-minus rating was a whopping plus-three during this World Cup.” [Grant Wahl, SI.com]

“Exit light, enter night, take my hand, we’re off to John Simon land” [Rittenberg, ESPN.com]
