It’s not every day that an All-Star Major Leaguer takes unprovoked shots from the peanut gallery at a starting NFL quarterback who takes his paychecks from the same city. But here’s Tribe closer Chris Perez, who started with a pretty good zing combining a riff on the Browns’ bumfight against the Seahawks with one on the Indians’ unpopular mid-season decision to fire hitting coach Jon Nunnally while the team was in first place in the AL Central, and ended up co-signing a “Colt McCoy sucks” tweet by one of his followers.
For all the good reasons to be unimpressed with McCoy, his height doesn’t seem to be one of them. It’s interesting that Perez’s comment didn’t provoke much if any of a response even from Colt’s dazed band of followers on Twitter. Anyway, its at least a little refreshing to see the millionaires calling each other out instead of playing grab ass or whatever, so.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. — Cleveland Browns wide receiver and return specialist Josh Cribbs held a conference call with the Bay Area media on Wednesday. Cribbs said that he learned a lot from San Francisco 49ers special teams coordinator Brad...
For all the talk about the West Coast offense, the Browns have been building up their defense through the draft.
First-year Cleveland coach Pat Shurmur gives his takes on everything to do with the Browns and 49ers – from injuries, to RB Peyton Hillis’ status, to why special teams coordinator Brad Seely left the Browns this year to join the 49ers’ staff, to Sunday’s game between the two teams in San Francisco – during his news conference with Cleveland media on Wednesday at Browns headquarters.
In the case of Sunday's game against Seattle, is a win a win? With increased attendance and revenues, can the Indians really follow up the 2011 season with a relatively quiet offseason? Plain Dealer sports columnist Terry Pluto answered those questions and more in his weekly podcast.
Given the Browns' recent performance and Jim Harbaugh's penchant for controversial handshakes, Browns fans should make sure to watch until the very end of the game on Sunday at San Francisco.
As the Rams offensive coordinator from 2009-10, Brown coach Pat Shurmur studied the 49ers defense extensively.
Now, however, the Niners have a new defensive coordinator in Vic Fangio which means ? not much has changed, according to Shurmur.
On a conference call with the Bay Area media this...
You have to be a little bit crazy to be a true fan of anything. Cleveland fans can certainly attest. Browns stadium, The Q and Jacob’s Field have their fair share of bona fide fanatics. Sometimes the word “fan” is bastardized a bit and has its teeth removed, but when used properly, “fan” is a powerful word. This whole month we’ve been doing Rocktober posts because...
