It’s not news today given that the Indians’ season technically ended about three months ago, but with Manny Acta just having become a casualty along with so much precious space in what was hilariously dubbed a “contention window,” it’s a fine time to recognize and celebrate the continued success of the best streak going in sports. Forty-eight Major League Baseball seasons have now passed, along with forty-four NFL seasons and forty-two NBA seasons in Cleveland since 1964, the year the Civil Rights Act became law and the year that a Cleveland team last won a championship in one of these leagues. For the duration of these 134 seasons, the oldest of the three Cleveland franchises, the Indians, and their fans, have clung to the Chief Wahoo logo, a Jim Crow relic right out of Der Stürmer’s animation department that trivializes the genocide of Native Americans and survives as the only mainstream caricature of a minority race in the western world despite the continued protest of the carica...

“Cleveland ’95: A Football Life” will be mandatory viewing for me

I’ve read countless tweets from Browns fans saying they won’t watch this documentary about the 1995 Cleveland Browns. Tony Grossi wrote about it and likened it to reliving a family member’s funeral. While those scenes depicting the stadium being torn apart might cause me to shed a few tears, after seeing the sneak preview, I think I’ll have to watch it because there is so...

Dawson delivers honest assessment of Browns

BEREA -- The negativity and frustration about the Cleveland Browns was increasing last week when a not-so-subtle message of encouragement was delivered to the team and public by one of the few players with the experience and credibility to deliver it. Hey Cleveland, what u r seeing is not the same old Browns, read the message on Twitter. Trust me. I feel it. I can hardly wait until...

Shurmur confirms that T.J. Ward had thumb surgery

Daryl Ruiter and a host of other Browns beat reporters all reported from their talks with Pat Shurmur this morning that T.J. Ward had surgery on his right thumb. It was also reportedly the same procedure that Bubba Ventrone had previously. Ward is considered “day-to-day” for whatever that means. The Browns have the Super Bowl champion New York Giants coming up this weekend. The...

Cleveland Browns: Week 5 NFL Power Rankings (#32)

Last week: 32 Record: 0-4 The Browns are the worst team in the league, but they’re not awful. They haven’t lost a single one of their games by more than 10 points. They rank 23rd in the league in yards per play differential, bad but not awful. They’ve done this mostly with their best player being suspended. There just really isn’t a truly awful team in the NFL, at least one...

Pat Shurmur Survival Guide

Beyond some miraculous, mythological football heaven intervention, it doesn’t appear that the Browns’ current losing streak will reverse itself any time soon.

2013 NFL Draft: Mock Draft

Click here if you’re looking for my Draft Value Board (Similar to a Big Board.) The order of this mock draft was decided by an estimate of each team’s final record, not the final    1. The Cleveland Browns select: Jarvis Jones | LB | Georgia   I still don’t see any elite prospects in [...]

Giants receiver Nicks in doubt for Browns game

Is it the foot, or is it the knee? Well, both, I guess. Nicks had a foot problem originally that the Giants were waiting to heal. In the meantime, his knee has apparently started to swell. The Browns will face another team without Joe Haden this week as they face off against the New York Giants, but as the week goes it seems more and more likely that the Browns won’t have to face...

Sandy’s First Game As Manager Provides Mixed Feelings

David Blaine, David Copperfield, Harry Houdini, Manny Acta… one of these men is not a magician. Sandy Alomar Jr. won his first game as the manager of the Cleveland Indians last night. It couldn’t have gone much better, really. He got a quality start from I-71 veteran in southpaw David Huff, the piecework lineup combined for 16 hits, and the bullpen closed it out with Chris Perez...

Receiver Ranks Thin

Mohamed Massaquoi (hamstring), Josh Cribbs (concussion) and Travis Benjamin (undisclosed) were all absent on the practice field.

Series Preview: White Sox at Indians 10/1-3

The White Sox have completely collapsed, a huge part of which was the Indians last series win over Chicago. Unless both Cleveland and Detroit get swept this week, the Sox are officially out of the playoffs in 2012.  The Indians seem to  have a newfound motivation with the introduction of Sandy Alomar, Jr. as manager. This team, which has struggled all season scoring runs, has...
