Power Rankings and DA’s Future Time to look around at the power rankings and Browns analysis for this week. Coming off the big win over the Texans this week, optimism is still the key word. Regarding the Power Rankings, the Browns have basically hit that part of the rankings where even with big wins it’s
Cleveland Cavaliers (24-19) vs Portland Trail Blazers (26-18) Rose Garden, Portland, OR Wednesday, January 30, 2008 9:00 EST ESPN/FSN OH/WUAB, WTAM Next up for the Cavaliers, they travel to the Pacific NorthWest to take on one of the most surprising and most improved teams in the NBA, the Portland Trail Blazers. The Blazers went on
Off the top of my head, I’d say the big winners here were the Mets and the Indians. Why the Mets? That should be fairly obvious I think. Why the Indians? Well, because a Central Division foe just lost a Cy Young winner. But the Indians beat him like a drum last season! Yes, that
The Cavaliers are sitting at 24-19, tied with Toronto for the fourth spot in the Eastern Conference. Looking back, the Cavs got off to a rough start without two of the primary pieces from last year’s team. A rough schedule and no Andy Varejao certainly contributed to the Cavs’ 9-6 start. A win against Boston
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
Everyone cross your fingers. Wait…not you LeBron, you rest yours. LeBron James injured the index finger on his non-shooting hand in the second quarter of last night’s game against the Pistons. He played only 20 minutes of the game, but still managed to lead the team in scoring (15) and assists (3). Ouch. Final score,
Browns Ink Coach To 2 Year Extension Through 2011 The Cleveland Browns have officially come to terms on a new contract extension for head coach Romeo Crennel. The 2 year extension, through 2011, is believed to be worth around $4 million per year. Obviously, RAC is thrilled. According to his agent, Joe Linta,
Anderson Varejao Trying To Make Waves This thing is officially a mess. With negotiations evidently going nowhere in the Anderson Varejao holdout, evidently AV has decided that the only thing left to do is to throw anyone and everyone under the bus by talking to the media and not holding back. Lets start at the
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
Indians’ Lefty Looks To Make Triumphant Return To Team In 2008 Saw this on Buster Olney’s ESPN.com blog this morning, and thought I’d pass it along. Basically, Sowers talks about having to deal with disappointment and frustration for the first time in his young career. I respect the approach he’s taking to his demotion last
The Celtics came into Cleveland with the league’s best record. They ran into a Cavs team determined to remind them who the defending conference champs are. This was a truly great game. Both teams made runs, and each had big baskets or defensive stops to keep the game within reach. Back and forth they went.
[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3EkBuKQEkio&feature=related] Read an interview from ESPN’s Chad Ford today. He talked with Anderson Varejao from his home in Brazil. The article paints a bleak picture for the Clevelanders that are fans of the wild haired flop artist. It seems there is little chance of Varejao playing in Cleveland anytime soon. Ford spreads the blame around
LeBron had his 4th triple double of the year, and his second in as many nights. The scary part is that he didn’t even seem to be giving his best effort. In the end his 30 point, 11 board, 10 assist performance was good enough to lead the Cavs to their 3rd straight win, and
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.
The Indians all but burried the Tigers’ post-season plans with 4 homes runs, and a 7-4 victory on Tuesday night. Ryan Garko hit the first one, a solo shot in the 2nd. Hafner’s 3-run blast in the 3rd tied the game, and Victor put the Tribe up for good in the 6th. Just for good
I don’t have time for analysis tonight, but wanted to say congratulations to coach Tressel and his staff on Jim’s 200th win as a Buckeye. This was a good test for the young team, who came out of the locker room after the half and dominated Washington. Final score- Ohio State 33 Washington 14. Well
Did someone forget to tell the Indians they had a game tonight? They didn’t show up until about the seventh inning. By then it was too late. It’s not worth wasting much effort to describe this ridiculous game. Apparently, the Tribe left Detroit thinking they had won the Central. THERE’S MORE BASEBALL TO PLAY MEN!
Sweet sweep! The Tribe beat Santana for the 4th time this season, in the process they get C.C. his 15th win. Sabathia wasn’t perfect, but labored and got the plays when he needed them. There were some nice defensive plays by Garko, Martinez, and Sabathia. Plus the Boy Wonder, Cabrera, played a good shortstop, and
Don’t really want to talk about the game from yesterday- sometimes you just have one of those games. We’ll be just fine. But had to find something for the Morning Adjustment. So I was surfing through some of my favorite sports sites, and came across Queen’s We Will Rock You. Watching the video on YouTube
C.C. and the Tribe did it again…and this time Halftime Adjustments was there in person. Tomorrow- pictures to go with the words. Right now- I’m tired!
