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
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
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
Off to another fine week of podcasting. I caught up with Dave Sterling (@dimoko)after his week of travel and we discussed lots of sports stuff, plus video games. Watching McFarland USA live and doing a movie podcast on it The Super Bowl is set with the Pats set to face the Seahawks Packers loss compared
The Browns weren’t in the NFL playoffs this year as you all know, but I had some takeaways that I thought would interest this audience even though it doesn’t directly involve the Browns. First and foremost, can you even imagine if the Browns were in the playoffs at this point? I was talking with a
Editor’s note: Breaking format a bit today as there’s only one man worth discussing. There was a moment, late Sunday afternoon, where Cleveland Browns head coach Mike Pettine was enraged with the officiating crew that was tasked with keeping things even keel during his team’s contest with the Indianapolis Colts. The clock was winding down
The Cleveland Browns lost to the Colts on Sunday, and all the momentum seemed to change when Paul Kruger was charged with a personal foul on his sack of Andrew Luck. At the time, the play would have forced fourth and ten and a likely punt. As it turned out, the Colts got a 15-yard
Sports Illustrated’s Sportsman of the Year is an annual must-read. Sadly, that the national recognition rarely has anything to do with the teams or individuals whom we cover. In turn, WFNY will soon announce its choice for 2014’s Cleveland Sportsman of the Year. Here’s one of the nominations for that honor by an WFNY writer.
It’s a big week of NFL football for the Cleveland Browns as many former players come to the lakefront as members of the Colts. The Colts hired Rob Chudzinski as a special assistant to the head coach. They recently signed Josh Cribbs. They’ve got former Browns safety Mike Adams. And of course, there’s a former Browns
Mike Burgermeister of 603Brown.com joined me to talk about the Browns latest loss to the Buffalo Bills. Brian Hoyer looked horrendous, Mike Pettine made the move to Johnny Manziel and the rest is history. But, what does that all mean for next Sunday against the Colts? The matchup with the Colts is a good one
A divided fan base became all that much more divided Sunday as the Cleveland Browns lost miserably to the Buffalo Bills. This week, as the Browns face a must-win game against the Indianapolis Colts, the fans will smell blood regardless of who Mike Pettine chooses to start at quarterback. And to think this is going to
Do you remember Duron Carter? The son of Hall of Famer Cris Carter, who had that very brief stint of his own at Ohio State? Well, Carter has emerged as a star in the Canadian Football League and has suddenly attracted the interest of several NFL teams. CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora reported on the
He’s baaaaaack (kinda).
We’ve already discussed Joe Banner’s Twitter account on these pages. Many still won’t even believe it’s the real deal, preferring to assume like many other accounts that @JoeBanner13 is a fake. Anyway, this morning Mr. Banner recounted what it was like one year ago today when he traded Trent Richardson to the Indianapolis Colts. a
It depends upon what the meaning of the word ‘is’ is.
I recently read a piece of commentary by ESPN.com’s Jeffri Chadiha which pertained to the NFL and how it should punish Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay for his looming drug-related issues. This isn’t specifically Cleveland-related just yet, but it’s no small stretch to think that it could be someday. I don’t think Jimmy Haslam is going to
Peter King is one of the best NFL writers in the nation and as a national guy his perspective can sometimes be instructive to help local fans take blinders off. As a follower of the Browns, it’s pretty easy to lose perspective on the more overarching story-lines that make up an NFL season or era
I have a lot of random thoughts after the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft, so here goes… “Johnny Manziel is a good draft pick regardless of how it works out if for no other reason than because of the rookie wage scale. In talking about this draft before it happened, there was a lot of
This season marks Trent Richardson’s last chance to claim he isn’t an NFL draft bust. While many consider him an unmitigated bust already (“Two yards per carry!”), he’s still a physical specimen that will make just about any coaching staff think they can work with him. And there are some mitigating factors for his struggles
The Browns were kind to give D’Qwell Jackson a chance to sell himself around the NFL and make the best choice for himself. As it turns out, the best choice was in Indianapolis where Jackson is reported to be pulling a 4-year deal worth $22 million ($11 million guaranteed) with the Colts. Jackson follows former
