While We’re Waiting…

While We’re Waiting aims to be the round-up of the recent WFNY-esque information for your morning viewing.  Have something you think we should see?  Send it to our tips email in the sidebar.

“Seemingly half the League is being led by men whose jobs, if not seriously in jeopardy, are certainly less than stable. Would Cowher be the right man in Big D should the Cowboys sputter in their final two games? He would certainly be the antithesis of Wade Phillips. Personally, we’d be intrigued by the Jones/Cowher dynamic. What about teams with long traditions and loyal fan bases, like Green Bay or Washington? And then of course there’s the much more real positions that will be coming open in Cincy, San Diego, Detroit and St. Louis. Cowher to Jacksonville? Who knows?” [The Legend Cecilio Guante]

If you’re willing to make an argument on why a certain punter was snubbed from the Pro Bowl team, you’re alright in my book.  After all, I’ll be doing this with AJ Trapasso’s numbers for the next decade. [Rumors and Rants]

“When mired in a shooting slump, the practiced remedy is to attack the basket to earn higher percentage chances and perhaps some shooting fouls. Delonte West has been in a slump of late and applied the tested antidote in the Cavaliers’ victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves Wednesday night. […] The result was a season-high 21 points on 9-of-16 shooting, by far his best game in several weeks.” [Brian Windhorst]

Way late on this, but essentially we have several bloggers – none that are fans of the Cavaliers – discussing how good they feel that the Cavaliers are.  A pretty solid read and great word by all involved, even if some of them are not believers.  They’ll learn. [With Malice]

And lastly, some pretty bad news for the Ohio State hoops squad.  Cleveland-native Dave Lighty will possibly miss the next three months with a broken left foot.  He was averaging 10 points and six boards per game so far this year. [ESPN via AP]

    How close was the voting for 5th?

    I can’t believe Scott’s perpetual 5 o’clock shadow wasn’t enough to sway the voters to let him into the Top Five.

    Snubbed like a Charger punter

    Was he ranking us on our inner beauty?

    A few sentences on WM actually annoyed me a little. Examples-

    Currently they’re 5-3 on the road against middling talent.
    This was written before the Atlanta loss (Which isn’t a bad team, by the way). So, Boston, New Orleans, and Detroit is “middling talent”. I’d love to see his upper echelon list.

    And nothing much is going to change between now and the finals.
    Seriously? With a good chance at moving $20 million in expiring contracts, there will be no impact there?

    Where do they find these guys?

    I know what you mean Chris. There are just a lot of people that are trying their hardest to not believe in the Cavs.

    And Craig, I think that Skip is part Indonesian. We didn’t stand a chance.

    I thought he was ranking your affinity for Braylon.

    …I think that Skip is part Indonesian.

    And, the snowball-rolling-downhill picks up steam!

    Lighty injury is huge on the defensive side. Dude is lockdown on the wings! We’ve got some young kids that hopefully can step in there and contribute (William Buford is a lights out shooter). We may see Thad go with a bigger lineup now starting both Lauderdale and Mullens at the same time. Guess we’ll get to see it in action tomorrow against IONA (always want to type Iowa). Can we get some more OSU Hoops coverage?? Thad Matta is too good of a coach to not get the some pub “The Vest” does. I mean the dude is recruiting comparable to what Pete Carrol does in football.
