Does this seem a tad optimistic based on the rest of Delhomm’s throws Sunday?- “The interception occurred later in the period. Delhomme’s arm was hit just as he was throwing the ball. The ball shot up in the air in a high loop and was picked by Leodis McKelvin. Mohamed Massaquoi, the intended receiver, was behind McKelvin on the play. Mangini speculated it would have been a touchdown pass if Delhomme hadn’t been hit.” [Schudel/News Herald]
Really neat story about Tribe legend Larry Doby- “Larry Doby of the Cleveland Indians smiles as radio announcer Mel Allen (right) gives the slow burn to the $3,500 mortgage on Larry’s home in Paterson, N.J., during ‘Larry Doby Day’ ceremonies at Yankee Stadium in New York, June 23, 1951, before the start of the Yankees-Indians game. The mortgage was paid off by people of Paterson.” [Duk/Big League Stew]

Buckeyes looking at DB Byron Moore to help bolster 2011 secondary- “The 6-1/190 defensive back can play both corner back and safety, but would likely fill a void at safety for the Buckeyes next season if he decided to come to Columbus.Even better, because he redshirted at USC last season, he would have three seasons to play three years for the Buckeyes and ultimately comes in as a redshirt sophomore.

Browns with a lot to prove Sunday- “This unpredictable season has suddenly become far too predictable. The chance for the Browns to change this perception comes as soon as Sunday, as they travel to Cincinnati to take on the disappointing Bengals. No one – at least the realists among us – thought this team would make the playoffs, but once they show improvement, it’s reasonable to expect some of the older, undesirable habits to eventually wilt away.” [Dawg Pound Daily]
