My Sportsman of the Year: Joe Thomas

Sports Illustrated’s Sportsman of the Year is an annual must-read. Sadly, that the national recognition rarely has anything to do with the teams or individuals whom we cover. In turn, WFNY will soon announce its choice for 2014’s Cleveland Sportsman of the Year. Here’s one of the nominations for that honor by an WFNY writer. There are not many positions in any sport that impact...

Browns, Thomas likely to miss playoffs again

BEREA, Ohio (AP) -- Year after year it's the same thing: the Browns collapse in December or even earlier, miss the playoffs and left tackle Joe Thomas makes the Pro Bowl. Book it again. Well, not just yet. Cleveland's chances of making the AFC playoffs are hanging by the thinnest thread as the Browns (7-7) head into Sunday's game at Carolina. With three straight losses, the Browns...

Cleveland Browns Offensive Lineman Joe Thomas Deserves to Be Fined For This

The way fines are doled out in today's NFL is ridiculous, but on some occasions it's actually good that the ability for the league office to hand them out exist. Not when it comes to handing guys $5000 fines for tossing a ball in to the stands (because fans are punks and may fight over it), but when it comes to guys doing dangerous things that the refs don't catch.Like Cleveland...

Browns face extremely long odds to make playoffs

BEREA, Ohio (AP) Browns left tackle Joe Thomas knows his drought may continue. He'll probably have to wait at least another year to get into the playoffs. Cleveland's odds of making the postseason this season are extremely long, and Thomas, who's expected to earn his eighth straight Pro Bowl appearance, has accepted the Browns' likely fate. Thomas enjoyed being in the race this...

What happened to the Browns running game?

BEREA, Ohio - The Browns formula for success this season was running the ball and setting up the play-action pass. The Browns rushed for over 100 yards as a team in four of their first five games. Earlier in the season, the Browns ranked in the top five in rushing offense averaging nearly 150 yards a game. The Browns have slumped to being the 20th overall offense and 18th in rushing...

Refuting Pewter Report’s Scott Reynolds- WINS are more important than Draft Positions

In an article on PewterReport.com, Scott Reynolds basically goes over Bucs history when Tampa Bay has won late in the year and damaged their draft positioning. I do understand his logic. He points out in 1988 the Bucs won two of the last three games, and ended up drafting #6. Instead of taking some major NFL stars that came out in the Draft 1989 like Barry Sanders, Deion Sanders...

Thomas: These Browns better than '07 version

BEREA, Ohio - Joe Thomas has lived it -- every snap of it -- and after years of misery, Thomas is enjoying the season the 7-4 Cleveland Browns are having.  It doesn't much remind Thomas of the last time the Browns were playing for something in November and December, though. That was 2007, when Thomas was a rookie.  "The only thing that really reminds me of (2007) is just the success...

Cleveland Browns Week 11 Winners and Losers

Of all the potential momentum-thwarting items in all of sport, right below injury has to be the three-and-out. If it occurs at the beginning of the game, there is so much pageantry and emotion stemming from the introductions and kickoff, that an immediate three-and-out is the buzzkill of all buzzkills. If your team kicks and the other team puts together a drive of some form, it’s...
