The Colts suspension of Trent Richardson voids over $3.1 million

Trent-Knows-Tee-compressor

The tale of Trent Richardson gets stranger by the day. No, I’m not talking about him getting traded or his continual disappointment between the lines on an NFL field. I’m talking about his very standing in the league and with his current team, the Indianapolis Colts. Trent Richardson missed the Colts’ final two playoff games

Video: Clay Matthews and his family football legacy

Clay Matthews Cleveland Browns

Back in 2009 when Eric Mangini was running the Browns’ draft and took Alex Mack, there were a lot of Browns fans that were upset that the Browns didn’t take Clay Matthews III. As it turns out the Browns and Green Bay both did pretty well with their respective picks, but I get what a

Colts promote Chudzinski to keep him in Indy

Ron Schwane-USA TODAY Sports

We told you recently about the Colts’ attempts to block Rob Chudzinski from leaving Indianapolis, and now they’ve followed that up by promoting him to keep him in the fold. I had wondered if Chud’s hiring wasn’t just a part of the coaching fraternity, but Chuck Pagano’s quotes about him show that it’s more than

Can the Browns find a seat on the QB carousel?

John DeFelippo Cleveland Browns

The Cleveland Browns don’t have a quarterback firmly atop their depth chart right now. Brian Hoyer is a free agent, Johnny Manziel hasn’t proven worthy, and Connor Shaw projects as a Brian Hoyer sequel at best. Speaking of Brian Hoyer’s free agency, he looks to be one of the most attractive free agent quarterbacks available

Can the Browns afford to keep working with Josh Gordon?

Josh Gordon Cleveland Browns

It seems Josh Gordon won’t be content until he’s out of the NFL. Maybe “content” isn’t the right word as it appears that maybe Josh Gordon is perfectly content with his lot in life as a screw-up. But is he a screw-up or is he an addict and are those two terms mutually exclusive? This

2015 Royal Rumble, Cleveland Cavaliers and more – WFNY Podcast – 2015-01-22

Podcast header Graphic

Will Gibson somehow convinced me to talk about the Royal Rumble on the WFNY podcast. I’m down to talk about anything at least once. I can’t see WWE becoming a regular topic, but I had no problem going down the nostalgic path to talk about WWE. Here’s what else we talked about. The Cavaliers traded

Chad Zumock, Will Burge, and a little Cleveland sports talk – WFNY Podcast – 2015-01-23

Podcast header Graphic

I can’t begin to describe all the things we talked about in this podcast. Will Burge did the Scene Podcast with me, and there was a crossover between he and Chad Zumock, so I had them both on for the first part of the podcast. We talked about a whole bunch of stuff and then

NFL on TV, freedom of speech and Ohio Sky… While We’re Waiting

Cleveland Sports

I am thankful to have this platform and community of people to talk to. It’s my day to talk about what I want and hopefully you want to talk about the same stuff. Further evidence that football is a TV sport… The NFL is moving their London experiment further and is going to start all

Watch Eric Metcalf beat the Steelers with two punt return TDs

metcalf_med

A blast from the past, it feels like I’ve probably even posted this before, but I don’t care. Back on October 24, 1993 Eric Metcalf returned two punts for touchdowns against the hated Pittsburgh Steelers. The Browns finished that season 7-9, but they won that game 28-23. And Metcalf’s 75-yard return for a TD was

Colts trying to keep Rob Chudzinski in Indy

chudzinski presser

When the Browns fired Rob Chudzinski after just one year, he found a place to land in Indianapolis. Chud was hired by the Colts in early February after being fired by the Browns right at the end of December. Colts coach Chuck Pagano had glowing things to say about Chud at the time. “Rob and

Watch LeBron James smash it after Kevin Love’s full court pass

LeBron James Cleveland Cavaliers

(Click here to sign up for WFNY’s Cleveland Cavaliers email newsletter) The last time the Cavs played the Jazz, it was one of the most confusing games of the season. That’s saying a lot. It felt like Kyrie Irving and the boys were all dogs marking their territory in a weird way. Kyrie had 34

This Oregon fan lost a bet and had to get a Buckeyes tattoo

Sad Oregon Fan

Oh the destruction that Urban Meyer has caused by taking the Ohio State Buckeyes and their third string quarterback to the top of the mountain. One fan had a bet and brought it to the attention of the fine folks at Black Sports Online. I’ve never engaged in a bet like this pretty much exactly

Shawn Marion will retire after this season

lbj-and-marion

The Cavaliers had an eventful off-season, to say the least, but getting Shawn Marion to join the Cavaliers felt like a real bonus. The NBA is a complex league in terms of player movement and to think that the Cavaliers could sign a guy with Shawn Marion’s experience and track record – even at an

Trent Richardson, Pats controversy and Katy Perry… WFNY Super Bowl roundtable

Super-Bowl-Roundtable-compressor

It’s time for “The Big Game,” as they call it around radio when they’re not permitted to use it in promotions of any kind. It’s the time of year when the NFL cracks down on church groups who not only show this “big game” but have the audacity to advertise it as a Super Bowl

Deflated footballs, common sense and sadness

NFL Replica Ball

I got into a long discussion on Facebook regarding this whole New England Patriots football deflation story with a Pats fan. That’s not the way to talk about this. Pats fans, like any fans who find themselves in situations like this, are the last ones you truly want to talk to because they’re so invested. Instead of

You’ll get chills watching the 1987 Browns intros before the Jets playoff game

Bernie and Ozzie

Sometimes it’s great to go into the wayback machine that is YouTube for amazing moments in Browns history. The Cleveland Browns beat the Jets in double overtime at home in 1987 and someone posted the player intros from that day on YouTube. It’s absolutely incredible to watch. Just listen as Webster Slaughter is announced and

Braxton Miller still enrolled at Ohio State

(Photo: Gary Housteau, 247Sports)

Much has been made of Ohio State’s quarterback situation this year due to injuries. The fallout from all that was rumor and innuendo that Braxton Miller would be transferring. That was further perturbed by a Twitter mishap by Miller that saw him seemingly picking Oregon instead of Ohio State by favoriting a Tweet instead of

[Also See: Cavs Behind the Box Score: Cavs beat the Bulls convincingly] We don’t post game highlight videos all that often, but the win last night over the Bulls felt special. J.R.

Browns interview Mike Martz for offensive coordinator

Mike Martz

The Cleveland Browns have interviewed Mike Martz for their vacant offensive coordinator position according to Ian Rapoport. That’s certainly a name that has some gravity due to his experience. Martz has been a head coach in the NFL with the St. Louis Rams. Before that he helped Dick Vermeil and the Rams win a Super
