Tight end Jordan Cameron has been ruled out for Sunday, while linebacker Karlos Dansby is doubtful to play and linebacker Jabaal Sheard is listed as questionable.

Josh Gordon can have second hand impact on Browns’ offense

At long last Josh Gordon is free from Roger Goodell’s clutches and the Browns’ offense now has a player the opposing defense must game plan for. Andrew Hawkins, Taylor Gabriel, Miles Austin, and Travis Benjamin have all shown themselves as adequate NFL receivers — something hard to come by in Cleveland the past decade — but with Gordon’s return comes the chance for Cleveland’s...

Ohio State Preparing for Indiana, Not Looking Past Them

I’m a college student. While I don’t attend Ohio State, my weekends are frequently spent driving from Philadelphia to various campuses to watch the Buckeyes. So it was only natural that I received a text this week from a friend who is a student at OSU asking me if I’d be interested in heading to Indianapolis for the Big Ten Championship Game as I did last season. Was I interested...

Five Things Paul Brown Was Not – Reliving Yesteryear

You know some things to be true. That they may technically only be your opinions is just noise. You’re right, and when others disregard or disbelieve you, a certain amount of frustration builds. At least if you are like me, anyway. Not to mention when you encounter resistance to demonstrable facts. Twenty years ago- when the internet wasn’t nearly as widely used- this was more...

Sea World, Blue Jacket bankruptcy, and Indy Browns… While We’re Waiting

Hey everyone, I’m on vacation this week, but I’ve still found bits of time to write, mostly during kids’ naptime on days when we weren’t chasing Mickey Mouse around some really expensive theme park. Also, I hope you enjoyed the Dimoko experience podcast with Dave Sterling and Brian Spaeth talking about a variety of topics. We are not visiting Sea World this trip and I’m...

Houston Rockets leading race to get Corey Brewer

The Houston Rockets may be the leader in the race to acquire Minnesota Timberwolves swingman Corey Brewer, according to ESPN’s Marc Stein.

Toward an Indians Off-Season Strategy

This is the first off-season I can remember in quite a while that doesn’t seem to carry with it a somewhat obvious imperative for the Cleveland Indians front office.  Typically, it feels like we enter the winter with a hole that requires filling.  Last year, for instance, the team had to address right field, as Nick Swisher transferred to a 1B/DH role.  Some years we’ve needed...

Josh Gordon on a pitch count against Falcons

Josh Gordon is back, Josh Gordon is ready to “tear this league up”, and Josh Gordon may have his plays limited on Sunday. Gordon’s return has been an underlying current of the Browns’ season ever since news broke on draft weekend that the NFL’s leading receiver in 2013 may be suspended.

Josh Gordon plans to “tear this league up” upon return

This Sunday will mark the return of Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon. While his quarterback, Brian Hoyer, has said that the Pro Bowl wide out will not be the team’s savior, Gordon himself apparently has other plans as told through former teammate Nate Burleson. “He told me, one, ‘starting on practice this Wednesday, I’m going to outwork everybody on the field....

Ben Tate is gone and the Browns are just fine

The Cleveland Browns parted ways with Ben Tate after just ten games of his first season with the team. The emergence of “The Baby Backs,” Isaiah Crowell and Terrance West made this a pretty easy maneuver for the Browns and GM Ray Farmer. It’s also not wholly surprising considering the general attitude that it’s felt like Ben Tate has had since coming to Cleveland. He hasn’t...
