My Williams tribute and new games on the horizon: While We’re Waiting…

WFNY ad short

On Tuesday, Andrew shared his thoughts on the passing of Robin Williams. Ordinarily I would shy away from the topic since it was brought up in recently in While We’re Waiting, but not today. As a boy I remember being fascinated with Robin Williams’ comedy. I was too young and naive to really understand a

Photo: the Browns’ QB competition just jumped up a notch

Kluber Browns

This is brilliant. I mean, we’ve kind of been down this road before trying to turn a pitcher into a quarterback and the results were a little bit Weeden-ish. Then again, when you’ve got the focus and unemotional demeanor of Ivan Drago and a cannon to boot, it might just work. But, you know, he’s

Cavaliers sign center Alex Kirk

Alex Kirk

The Cavaliers have been making a splash with free agent signings and visits this summer. This isn’t one of those. The Cavaliers announced on Monday that they have signed center Alex Kirk to an undisclosed contract. Kirk was with the Cavaliers’ summer league team in Las Vegas averaging 5.2 points on .524 shooting and 3.4

Kruger Questions Our Dedication: Training Camp Notes: 08.11.14

Gilbert Skrine

The Browns were back on the practice field Monday morning after an off day Sunday. The offense wore the orange winner’s jerseys for just the second time in camp, presumably for a competition won during Friday’s practice and not the preseason loss to the Lions. The practice started and stayed outdoors, despite the rain that

Gilbert, Desir and veteran additions give Browns depth in secondary

Pierre Desir has an incredible backstory. Born in Haiti, Desir found himself a standout athlete with a pregnant girlfriend at age 15. He didn’t back away from his responsibilities, and went to small Lindenwood University while he took care of his wife and family, including working part time jobs that included removing human feces. Despite

Manziel Runs with the Ones: Training Camp Notes 08.06.14

johnny manziel podium

Johnny Manziel took all the first team reps on Wednesday, even though after practice Mike Pettine announced that Brian Hoyer would start the first preseason game on Saturday against the Lions. During Manziel’s first 11-on-11 session, the team mostly worked the running game, but he did make a few throws including a big gainer to

Bring out the Boxing Gloves: Training Camp Notes 08.05.14

Dansby orange jersey

The Browns’ offense might have had their best day of practice on Tuesday since training camp began. And overall, I’d still say the defense was better. The team split reps with the quarterbacks again, and Johnny Manziel made a few nice plays. He threw the best ball of camp so far when he found Travis

Second-year guard Garrett Gilkey is preparing to be a starter

Garrett Gilkey

The logo on his shirt is that of a Cleveland Browns dog with a barbell in it’s bared teeth trying to chew through it. Underneath are the words Cleveland Browns Strength. This image stands in sharp contrast to the smiling man wearing it. Garrett Gilkey is upbeat, polite and doesn’t seem to have a mean

Sizing up Santana and Uniform Notes …While We’re Waiting

WFNY ad short

I found this piece by Ben Lindberg to be interesting. Carlos Santana may be the subject that started the thought process, but I thought the concept was fun. We really can explain away anything that we couldn’t predict. Here’s the money paragraph- “Maybe early-season Santana’s swing was off. Maybe his position switch really was messing

Things get heated… Training Camp Notes 07.29.14

Browns training camp

Apparently I wasn’t the only one who thought Monday’s practice lacked the competitive fire that we’ve been hearing about. The dial on the intensity knob got turned up on Tuesday. There were bodies flying around. There were footballs thrown at heads. There was pushing and shoving. There was a skirmish that included at least 15-20

Balancing competition and aggression… Training Camp Notes 07.28.14

Kirksey

Competition. We’ve heard for months that the coaching staff and front office want to see competition for every position. Whether it is a high profile battle between Hoyer and Manziel, or a more subtle one between Kirksey and Robertson, this was going to be a camp marked by competition. And it is. Sort of. Last

Some maneuvering took place on Tuesday night. The Cavaliers traded Carrick Felix (who wasn’t in the plans for the future if we are honest), a second round pick and cash to Utah for three non-guaranteed contracts. I am not a cap specialist. I don’t know how far off the Cavaliers are from having the right pieces
