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

02/10 (Not-so) Morning Minute: Cribbs to the Crib

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

02/07 Morning Minute: 19 Action News

First off, I’m not sure how many fans of this site are still living in the Cleveland area, but today’s front page news regarding Eaton Corp. is pretty huge.  I realize that many people emotionally rebelled against the Jacobs-to-Progressive Field change, but a Fortune 500 company planting roots for years to come in the heart of

02/05 Morning Minute: So Long, Bobby

Wow, I have to apologize for the later post today.  It took me a while to get through all of the quality posts that went up yesterday.  I definitely recommend checking them out – especially the interview with Brian Cook.  Good stuff, regardless of allegiance. What will likely be the biggest news today has nothing

02/03 Morning Minute: What Once Was

Does anyone else find it utterly ironic that on the same day that The Plain Dealer puts Bill Belichick on the front page is the same day that rest of the world is ablaze with the recent scandals? What Tony Grossi calls the “recipe for sports immortality,” the rest of the world is throwing out

Some mistakes you never stop paying for

Kellen Winslow Jr. will not be joining teammates Braylon Edwards, Josh Cribbs, Joe Thomas and Ryan Pontbriand in Hawaii for the Pro-Bowl. As first alternate, he would have been invited had the former Kent State basketball standout Antonio Gates decided not to play due to his foot injury. The window of opportunity for the tight

02/02 Minute: Chicks Dig The Long Snap

I’m not sure how I missed this earlier in the week, but with big thanks to Mike over at Kid Cleveland I am now privy to the information that Browns long-snapper Ryan Pontbriand is heading to Hawaii with teammates Joe Thomas, Braylon Edwards and Joshua Cribbs. As he mentioned, with the Pontbriand selection back in

Derek Anderson, Ringer

Cleveland Browns fans, our beloved quarterback from this past year may be looking for a new contract. He may be looking to capitalize on a year where he helped turn around a franchise that was destined for the cellar only one week into the season. But do you think that stops him from enjoying life?

01/30 Morning Minute: New Deals For Everyone!

Easily, the biggest news in the Cleveland area has nothing to do with Cleveland at all. The Twins dealing Johan Santana to the National League is very intriguing, as Rick covered yesterday.

Does Brady Quinn need to play?

Hear me out Browns’ fans. I’m not saying he should be the starting QB… As the Browns continue to win, and get closer to the playoffs, Derek Anderson cements his place as the team’s starting QB. He will get Pro-Bowl consideration this season. He has led this team to their best record since my nephew

Someone Please Make Sense Of This

Browns Offer Contract Extensions To Anderson And Lewis Ok, Jamal Lewis I get. He’s an unrestricted free agent, the Browns have no other viable options at running back right now. He’s likely to be significantly cheaper than what Michael Turner will be asking for on the open market. He rushed for over 1,300 yards last

(Sniff, sniff) Is that the playoffs?

Easy there big guy, take a breath. One game at a time. For once it wasn’t all Derek Anderson and the flying receivers. The defense and especially the running game contributed to this win. Chud’s game plan was terrific in this one. I will admit that in the first half I was a bit skeptical.

Art Modell, most hated owner in sports

This comes as no surprise to anyone who follows the Browns. ESPN’s page 2 came out with a list of the most hated owners in all of sports. That Art Modell came in first is not a surprise to me, the surprise was that he wasn’t second and thrid as well. Former Cavs owner Ted
