I ran down Boney again this year to talk Detroit Tigers and the A.L. Central, but we ended up talking about lots of other things too. Detroit Tigers and the A.L. Central Are the Tigers finally done with age? Liking Cespedes as a player International amateur free agents Collective bargaining and keeping labor peace
The ultra-slim chances that I had as a Cleveland Indians fan to have Victor Martinez back in a Tribe uniform have gotten even slimmer. If the Indians’ own self-professed budgetary constraints this off-season weren’t enough, the rumor mill states that Victor prefers to stay in Detroit and will give them every chance to sign him
The Cleveland Browns finally had their chance to play someone other than their fellow teammates. What many fans are watching, however, is the battle within the team as Johnny Manziel and Brian Hoyer both look to claim the team’s starting quarterback role. On Saturday, both quarterbacks played about a quarter-and-a-half—or three-to-four offensive drives. Each player had his
With the first weekend of preseason football in the books, we learned some thing about the outlook of the 2014 Browns, both positive and negative, but many important questions remain unanswered. The difficulty of the preseason remains that no one truly knows whether certain players are flashes in the pan or can be counted on
This year’s Great Lakes Classic is happening tomorrow night and it’s a pre-season all about Johnny Football. My friend is the creator of the original GLC song and he gave me the newest iteration today. Enjoy!
Rookies and a revamped offense: What we are watching during Week 1 of the NFL Preseason Football in Cleveland is back and once again, the Browns have brought in a new regime. On Saturday, the Detroit Lions will host new Head Coach Mike Pettine and the new-look Cleveland Browns. Gone are Rob Chudzinski, Joe Banner,
On August 9, the Cleveland Browns will face the Detroit Lions in their annual Battle for the Barge—The Great Lakes Classic. While this overblown preseason game will get lots of burn for its contrived tradition, it’s also going to be a focal point for Browns fans as wide receiver Nate Burleson plans on making the most
The Cleveland Browns are kicking the tires on cornerback Aaron Berry. The Browns signed him today and GM Ray Farmer made the announcement. “Aaron Berry gives us both depth and competition at corner, and has the potential to upgrade our kicking game,” Farmer said. “He’s tough and relentless and his strength prior to his injury
The Browns thought they had a reliable veteran receiver when they traded for Davone Bess last season. That didn’t work out all that well for the Browns as Bess turned into what appeared to be a pot-smoking rastafarian via his own social media presence. According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Browns have found a
How many non-Browns games did you watch this past season on Thursday night? How many weeks did it take for you to get burned out on the NFL this year? For me, with the number of games I can now watch per week having exploded over the past five years, I think the burnout rate
Buffalo fans had been nervous after the departure of their defensive coordinator Mike Pettine. Yesterday, the Bills acted quickly to fill the vacancy in hiring former Detroit Lions head coach Jim Schwartz. Schwartz, only 47, had been previously rumored as a possible defensive coordinator candidate in Cleveland. He was a disappointing 29-51 in five seasons
The Detroit Lions are set to hire Jim Caldwell as their new head coach and Jim Tressel could be on his way to Michigan as well. ESPN’s Adam Schefter first reported the news about Caldwell shortly after noon on Tuesday. Other confirmations continue to flow in. On Monday night, Sirius XM’s Adam Caplan shared that
The Tennessee Titans have hired three-time Cleveland Browns interview candidate Ken Whisenhunt as their new head coach. ESPN’s Adam Schefter and Chris Mortensen first reported the news on Twitter at about 6:15 p.m. Monday. Within the next hour, the Titans officially confirmed the move. Whisenhunt, 51, had just finished his lone season as the San
The Browns weren’t going to win this game on this day with Brandon Weeden. Despite some moments that indicated the Browns might have a good chance to win their fourth in a row, Weeden unleashed one of the worst passes ever to help Detroit seal the victory. Weeden was getting some pressure in the pocket.
In case you missed it (consider yourself lucky,) and want to see it (consider yourself a glutton for punishment,) here is the pass that pretty much sealed the Browns’ loss to the Detroit Lions today. [Related: Browns drop game to Lions 31-17]
The Browns have held a lead going into halftime for all five of their games before today. They continued that streak with a strong second quarter. The Lions’ big weapon Calvin Johnson was active, but played in probably a third of Detroit’s plays. He had one reception in the half for seven yards. Detroit got
The Browns ruled Billy Winn out of today’s game during the week. Joining him on the inactive list today are LB Jabaal Sheard who went through a pregame warm-up routine but was scratched. It is his third game missed with the hamstring injury. TE Keavon Milton, OL Patrick Lewis, Martin Wallace, Garrett Gilkey and newly
Pittsburgh gets most of the sports hate in this town thanks to the Steelers, but 2.5 hours the other direction sits Detroit, a city that collectively may be Cleveland’s biggest rival. With Detroit sitting across the border in that state up North, it’s reason enough for Northeast Ohioans to harbor some hatred, but throw in
Calvin Johnson will be a game-time decision this weekend when the Lions get set to face the Browns in Cleveland. The big, talented receiver missed a 22-9 loss to the Packers the prior week, but practiced on a limited basis on Thursday. His replacement, Kris Durham, caught three passes for 30 yards and a touchdown.
