While We’re Waiting is the daily morning link roundup that WFNY has been serving up for breakfast for the last several years. We hope you enjoy the following recent collection of yummy and nutritious Cleveland sports-related articles. Anything else to add? Email us at tips@waitingfornextyear.com. “Brandon Weeden, QB, Cleveland Browns. After suffering through a bumpy rookie season in which he threw more interceptions (17) than touchdown passes (14), Weeden is working with two very good new coaches in head man Rob Chudzinski and offensive coordinator Norv Turner — and the difference is like night and day. Retooling a quarterback is Turner’s cup of tea, and it looks like he’s done a great job with Weeden’s footwork. The Browns are saddled with average receivers, but Weeden has worked well with his tight ends and running backs, showing great arm strength and ball-handling skills.” [Brandt/NFL.com] —- Extremely well written piece by a veteran sports writer. “Even as I was enjoying my night, it was clear something was amiss with the Blazers. I never knew how amiss until I answered that call. “Shawn Kemp will no longer be with us,” the voice at the other end said. “He’s blown his career up his nose.” It was my welcome to the NBA moment.” [Quick/Oregon Live] —- Three reasons why the Ohio State Buckeyes won’t go 12-0 in 2013 [SB Nation] —- “Where is Pestano? Where is the effervescent and confident reliever who has been known to confound hitters with his sharp slider, his sneaky fastball and his meticulous planning for each at-bat? He’s in Columbus, still searching, but not sulking. “I’ve been a big part of the team the past couple of years, and not being able to do that hurts,” Pestano said before a recent Clippers game. “But I can be upset at the decision or I can go out here and try and get better, and focus all my attention on that.” [Valade/Cleveland.com] —- Kind of a surprise pick to me. “Baltimore Ravens Under 8.5 (-105): The personnel turnover, especially on the defensive side of the ball for Baltimore, is well documented so I won’t touch too much on that. The talent loss itself from Ray Lewis and Ed Reed isn’t really an issue as both were over the hill but I really think the loss in the locker room will be felt more than most expect. Offensively it was bad enough to lose Anquan Boldin but when Dennis Pita went down that really hurt the Ravens.” [CleveTA Dribbles] —- Finally, this video on Anderson Varejao is pretty interesting.
