The strange carousel of Carson Wentz becoming the guy in Philadelphia

For the Philadelphia Eagles, everything was so different just a week ago.It has been a tumultuous summer for the team in regards to sorting out would be the lead signal caller when week one of the 2016 season came around, and beyond. The position has been completely overhauled since the close of business for the 2015 season, which saw the Eagles limp to an awkward 7-9 record, which...

“So you’re saying there’s a chance?” has become the motto of nearly 1,000 people when making Super Bowl wagers. MGM sportsbooks has reportedly taken in plenty of bets on the Cleveland Browns – yes, the Browns – winning it all. The Browns are destined for two to seven wins, but that’s not deterring eager bettors from playing great odds. The Browns have unlikely odds...

ESPN pens NFL Draft Profile of Paul DePodesta

With the NFL Draft rapidly approaching, draft profiles of all the top names are being bantered about in all of their pronoun-free glory. Quarterback intangibles, wide receiver work ethic, on-and-off-field examinations…you name it. All there in large, ellipses-filled paragraphs that completely eliminate needless words like “the.” While quarterbacks and play-making defenders...

Paul DePodesta: “I have experience in things that are unpopular”

At the recently held Sloan Analytics Conference at MIT, recently hired Head of Smart Things, Paul DePodesta, stated that he heard rumblings of the Cleveland Browns getting skewered by folks at the recently completed NFL Combine. If all of this recency sounds redundant, it’s because so much has happened in such a short time that the Browns have seemingly been caught in a whirlwind...

Tommy Tanous Will Likely Replace DePodesta

Following Paul DePodesta’s departure, John Harper of the NY Post says that Tommy Tanous will likely take over his role as the head of player development. Tanous originally joined the organization as a professional scout in 2010, and he was named the Director of Amateur Scouting the following year. This decision seems to make the most sense as he was heavily involved in the draft...

Thoughts after the Cleveland Browns hiring of Paul DePodesta

You know that look a dog gives you when it ***** its head to the side? There was a lot of that in the Dawg Pound yesterday when the Cleveland Browns confirmed the reports that they’d hired Moneyball baseball guy Paul DePodesta to join their front office. As of this typing our readers had commented on that post 234 times, which is something of a modern record, I think. It’s hard...

All in on Paul DePodesta: While We’re Waiting…

Happy Wednesday, Blawg Pound. I’m all in on the recently hired Paul DePodesta. Much of my all-in-itude can be derived from two words: Why not? Anyone with eyes or ears, regardless of whether or not they could tell a pigskin from a pork rind, could tell you that none of the Cleveland Browns’ approaches over the past 15-plus years have worked. That’s a reductive thing to say...

Browns Hire ‘Moneyball’ Executive Paul DePodesta As Chief Strategy Officer

The Cleveland Browns made the surprise personnel move of the young offseason Tuesday. The Browns announced they’ve hired Paul DePodesta as their chief strategy officer. That name should sound familiar, especially to baseball fans as DePodesta had been serving as the New York Mets’ vice president of player development and amateur scouting. DePodesta, an analytics expert, will...

Browns hire Mets executive Paul DePodesta as chief strategy officer

The Cleveland Browns are at it again, doing another potentially silly thing that will likely earn them scorn for one reason or another. On Tuesday, the Browns announced that they had hired Paul DePodesta as their new chief strategy officer. While this may not seem like much of a thing on the surface, keep in mind that DePodesta isn’t exactly a football guy. In fact, he’s worked...

DePodesta and Tanous High On Mets Day Two Draft Picks

Adam Rubin of ESPN NY writes that Mets VP Paul DePodesta and amateur scouting director Tommy Tanous addressed their Day 2 draft picks on Friday. Here’s what they had to say … Milton Ramos, SS, American Heritage (Fla.) HS., third round: “Certainly he’s known for defense. He’s a lot stronger than people think.
