LeBron: Bulls are better than Cavs

It might be hedging his bets. It might be setting expectations. It might be a way to motivate his own teammates. But one way or another, Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James says he thinks the Chicago Bulls are a better team than the Wine and Gold as presently constructed. “[The Bulls] are a team that’s much better than us right now just off chemistry,” James said. “They’ve...

LeBron James bringing new leadership style in return

LeBron James went off to college and came back to Cleveland having learned a few things. According to Yahoo’s Marc J. Spears, James held a players-only meeting before the first practice this season in which he specifically laid out expectations for each and every player on the Cavs. “I was looking like, ‘Wow.’ That’s crazy that he broke down every individual thing he wants...

It’s not time for Johnny Manziel to take over… yet

Despite an awful showing in Jacksonville against a really bad Jaguars team, it’s not time for Johnny Football. Brian Hoyer and the Cleveland Browns offense had a miserable day, but there’s little reason to think it would have been better with Johnny Manziel under center. His mobility might have helped at times, but it’s silly to think that the Browns were one player—even...

Ohio State rolls again; St. Ignatius gets a big win

Week 8 of college and high school football in Ohio is in the books. In college, Ohio State’s offense continued its roll with a dominating win over Rutgers. The MAC is getting tighter and tighter this week with losses by Bowling Green and Akron. The OAC elite of John Carroll and Mount Union are both still perfect after victories this week. In high school, the biggest win came from...

Cleveland Browns Week 7 Winners and Losers

If you’re late to the party, or are still ignoring social media in general, I’ve been a frequent guest on CBS Radio’s Youngstown Sports Talk on 1240 AM/WBBW. Typically, our conversations focus on the Cleveland Cavaliers as, again—if you’re late to the party, that’s my niche around these parts. But this past week, the afternoon duo of Marc and Sean had me partake in their...

Because who wouldn’t pay $2,000 for a pair of LeBrons? While We’re Waiting…

I don’t want to talk about it. Nope, I won’t talk about it. You can’t get me to talk about it—at least for another hour…   How much would you pay for a pair of sneakers? While sneaker blogs everywhere are leveraging pictures and quick-hit pieces, ESPN’s FiveThirtyEight produced some work that these other web sites should have been pumping out for the last few years...

Browns play down to competition, lose to Jags 24-6

This is not one of those games that defines the ceiling of this Cleveland Browns team. It defines where they are in their development — and that’s not nearly as far developed as they want to be — but it doesn’t define their ceiling. This team can be a good one, but they’re not experienced enough that they can just roll over bad teams. They tried to roll over a bad team...

Seattle offered Percy Harvin to Browns—for Jordan Cameron

Any time a player is traded in the NFL, a fun exercise is to do a search on Twitter that includes said player’s name and “Browns.” In the latest round, it was Seattle trading wide receiver Percy Harvin to the New York Jets for what amounted to a conditional mid-round draft pick. Some fans wondered why Cleveland didn’t pounce on such an opportunity, but it turns out they had...

Tristan Thompson kisses Allie Clifton, calls her Tina

Pre-season basketball just needs to end. There might be a real basketball game to talk about. Alas, this is what we’ve got. Tristan Thompson was being very strange in a pre-game interview with FSO reporter Allie Clifton. He might have been fulfilling a dare or a bet or doing some kind of inside joke that I’m unaware of. I can’t figure out any other reason for him to act so...

About That Alley-Oop

It started on defense and ended with a glare and the leg muscles of 20,000 individuals involuntarily propelling them out of their seats. All of the synapses and impulses and awe-filled, arms-extended shrieks that, truthfully, had been bubbling up for years, were all let loose in this seven-or-eight-second sequence that began with the element of the game that has long been discussed...

Which Cavs are most likely to crash through the Spanish Announcer’s Table?

The Cavs announced Friday that all of their games will be broadcast in Spanish on 87.7 FM La Mega. This marks the first time in Cavs history that their games will be carried in a second language. The Cavs are the sixth team to provide Spanish live coverage of all their games, joining the Heat, Magic, Mavericks, Rockets, and Spurs. This is an exciting development, and is indicative...

It’s hard to act like you’ve been there before when the the Pittsburgh Steelers have won 18 of the last 19 matchups. But, with this win over the Steelers, the Cleveland Browns are once again over .500. And with the Oakland Raiders, Jacksonville Jaguars, and Tampa Bay Buccaneers as the upcoming three opponents, the immediate future is bright. Here are my thoughts on the Cleveland...

New Bills ownership could look to Mike Holmgren?

Another week and another rumor involving Mike Holmgren’s involvement in an NFL franchise. The Buffalo Bills were recently sold, and we know how that drill goes as we saw it all too closely with Joe Banner at Jimmy Haslam’s side. A lot of the rumor mill surrounding Joe Banner’s dismissal has it that Jimmy Haslam felt a little bit like he was set up in that arranged marriage...

George Steinbrenner, Jerry Lucas, and the NBA in Cleveland?

You know the NBA planted its flag in Cleveland in 1970, with the inaugural season of the Cavaliers. Unlike me, you may also have known that Cleveland was this close to joining the NBA less than ten years earlier. By the end of the 1950s, the National Industrial Basketball League had been in operation for over ten seasons. Originally formed as a league for mill workers, the teams...

Mike Pettine details working relationship with Kyle Shanahan

Mike Pettine’s meet-up with the media yesterday shined a little bit of light on how he operates as a head coach with his coordinators. I assumed a lot of what Pettine said about how he operates, but it’s always fun to get a bit of insight into it. On if he and Shanahan go over play calls during the week: “We spend some time together. It’s more a little bit early in the week...

Browns as favorites, scripting reality, and a fall playlist… While We’re Waiting

Trying to get used to the Browns as a road favorite… The Cleveland Browns aren’t supposed to be a favorite, let alone a road favorite.

I mean, I went through the numbers this week and it makes sense and I know it to be true, but I’m having a difficult time getting used to it. Even as it’s something...
