While We’re Waiting serves as the early morning gathering of WFNY-esque information for your viewing pleasure. Have something you think we should see? Send it to our tips email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our latest at Still WFNY- “That said, WFNY thought it would be a masochistically entertaining exercise to see just who comprised the Cavaliers roster that was led by the duo of coaches John Lucas and Keith Smart to an overall record of 17-65, and see just what each of the 14 men are doing today.” [Scott/Still WFNY]
Dwyer takes advantage of the Varejao injury to remind Cleveland he said we would stink. Thanks. “I took a ton of heat before the season for picking the Cavs to win just 12 games last July, but that assumption was based around the idea that the Cavaliers would do right by their fans and submit to a proper rebuilding project. This was a skinflint roster outside of LeBron James(notes) as it was, there was a reason he decided to take to Florida as a free agent, and the Cavs were only wasting their fans’ time by … well, what exactly were the expectations this season?” [Dwyer/Ball Don't Lie]
Somehow I don’t see Josh Cribbs asking if you’d like to supersize your value meal- “Some players are preparing to follow in the footsteps of their predecessors. No, not wearing leather helmets. Taking a second job in the offseason. “Me and my wife talked about that last night,” Schaefering said before the Browns finale. “Going out and getting into a job that can take care of part of the bills.” Once the Super Bowl ends at the beginning of next month, the NFL will enter a world of uncertainty. Free agency and trades will be on hold. Minicamps and offseason workouts will be postponed or canceled if an agreement isn’t reached. Training camp or, worst-case scenario, the 2011 season could be delayed.” [Petrak/Chronicle Online]
Interesting question, what if Cleveland had hired Rex Ryan instead of Mangini- “After Saturday’s victory against Indianapolis, Ryan has now led the Jets to three road playoff wins in two seasons. By comparison, the Browns have won two road playoff games in franchise history: the 1955 NFL Championship game against the Rams and a 1969 playoff game against Dallas. That’s it.” [Red Right 88]
Keeping track of Christian “Skyenga” and his assent up the Cavalier record book. [Stepien Rules]
