WWW

The Wednesday WWW was manned by the great Rick Grayshock, who has since moved onto other endeavors. It will be a tough act to follow him, but on most Wednesdays during the Tribe offseason, I will be taking this space over. So wish me luck and I hope you enjoy my spin. Did you know

Brian Hoyer offers perspective for NFL’s off-field nightmares

Brian Hoyer Cleveland Browns

Nobody is going to go out and try to claim that the NFL had a good week last week. Despite kicking off its season and having plenty of games to talk about, the talk in and around NFL football was dominated by Ray Rice, Roger Goodell, and eventually Adrian Peterson. Rice and Goodell were topics

Best-case scenario for Josh Gordon could be eight games

JoshGordonHDR

All that’s left to figure out is what the reaction will be around the league. There are so many details out there about the Josh Gordon situation now, that all eyes and judgments are squarely on the NFL in the wake of the Ray Rice suspension and the pending Jim Irsay discipline. None of these

Fun with Numbers: Browns-Ravens edition

sheard ravens

Before the Browns host the Ravens today for a special 4 p.m. game at FirstEnergy Stadium, I did some research to share some fascinating numerical tidbits for you today. You can check back to Oct. 5 for the last time I did this feature. 2,178 – Number of days since Cleveland last defeated Baltimore in

Talking talking talking (and talking some more) about the Ravens

brownsravens

Not in a long time can I remember this much talk between teams heading into a game as there has been leading up to this Sunday’s match-up between the Browns and Ravens. Trent Richardson is going to exchange jerseys with Ray Rice. The Browns think they’re a different team than the one that lost on

Browns miss big opportunities, lose to Ravens 23-16

Greg Little Drops TD

The Cleveland Browns certainly didn’t embarrass themselves (just like Josh Cribbs1 said) in losing 23-16 to the Ravens, but this team seems to be the absolute opposite of opportunistic. You have to give the Browns credit for having a plan on defense. They got gashed at times, but they kept Ray Rice under control and

Why don’t we talk about Trent Richardson more?

Screen Shot 2012-07-03 at 9.22.20 PM

Are we not talking about Trent Richardson enough? In some senses I guess there isn’t much to say. Richardson has even successfully avoided letting Jim Brown and his comments get under his skin all throughout the off-season.

Another view of Peter King’s stat of the week regarding running backs

Richardson Past Penn State

Peter King does great work and his Monday Morning Quarterback column is a must-read. He has some really enlightening information in the column even if you sometimes question his sources. Obviously Tom Heckert does, as he blatantly told the Cleveland press this week that he hasn’t talked to King in years. Be that as it

As has come up with talks of franchising Peyton Hillis, the tag looks like it could cost somewhere in the neighborhood of $7.7 million to tag a running back.
