Josh Gordon reportedly fails another drug test, faces one-year ban

The good news? If Adam Schefter is correct, the Browns won’t have to worry about how they’re going to handle Josh Gordon. The league will handle all the decisions for the physically gifted problem child under the league’s substance abuse program. Gordon has apparently failed yet another test and is staring down a one-year suspension. Browns WR Josh Gordon flunked another drug...

Dismember the Titans: Cleveland State beats Detroit to win third straight

During the national anthem Friday night at the Wolstein Center, Cleveland State guard Charlie Lee stretched his ankles. He put his right foot behind him and then his left, rotating each to warm up his lower joints as he surveyed his teammates. With two Vikings dealing with ankle issues—Andre Yates missed the game with a high ankle sprain, and Terrell Hales played despite his own...

ESPN report on Johnny Manziel paints a putrid picture

Johnny Manziel may still have a shot at being the quarterback of the future for the Cleveland Browns, but it would take an unprecedented turn of events for those No. 2 jerseys to have any kind of value beyond 2015. In a recent report from ESPN.com’s Jeremy Fowler and Pat McManamon, more than 20 sources—some on the record, some not—discussed Manziel’s rookie season, leaving...

10 Players for Browns fans to watch for at the Senior Bowl

The Senior Bowl is the first big event of the NFL Draft process. It gives NFL teams their first chance to see the senior draft prospects up close in practices and the game. Last season the Browns were very impressed with the players in the game, selecting three players in last year’s draft who played in the Senior Bowl. Second rounder Joel Bitonio, third rounder Chris Kirksey,...

Charlotte Hornets vs. Cleveland Cavaliers: Behind the Box Score

Charlotte Hornets (18-26) 90 Cleveland Cavaliers (24-20) 129 Box Score It was a week and a day before Friday night’s game that I wrote in this space about how the Cavaliers broke free from the grip of the six-game losing streak that had been suffocating them since the start of 2015. Was it only eight days ago? Nay, it couldn’t have been! It must have been many seasons and many...

WATCH: J.R. Smith, LeBron half-court alley oop

Amidst one of the most fun first halves of this season, the Cleveland Cavaliers dropped 75 points on the Charlotte Hornets. While it’s tough to choose between the barrage of three-point field goals (the wine and gold shot 7-of-10) or the handful of fastbreak opportunities, no two points were more emphatic than this half-court alley oops from JR Smith to LeBron James. The Cavs...

2015 Royal Rumble, Cleveland Cavaliers and more – WFNY Podcast – 2015-01-22

Will Gibson somehow convinced me to talk about the Royal Rumble on the WFNY podcast. I’m down to talk about anything at least once. I can’t see WWE becoming a regular topic, but I had no problem going down the nostalgic path to talk about WWE. Here’s what else we talked about. The Cavaliers traded Dion Waiters for three players better than Dion Waiters Why couldn’t Kyrie...

Chad Zumock, Will Burge, and a little Cleveland sports talk – WFNY Podcast – 2015-01-23

I can’t begin to describe all the things we talked about in this podcast. Will Burge did the Scene Podcast with me, and there was a crossover between he and Chad Zumock, so I had them both on for the first part of the podcast. We talked about a whole bunch of stuff and then Will left and Chad and I discussed the Cavaliers, mostly. Just a great listen and a great hang with Chad...

D’Angelo Russell, One and Dones, and Team Building

On Thursday night, like many nights during this college basketball season, I watched Ohio State freshman guard D’Angelo Russell do practically everything for his team as he led the Buckeyes to a tight victory over Northwestern in Evanston. Russell scored 33 of the team’s 69 points while hitting 6-of-11 three pointers. He added seven rebounds, six assists, and committed zero turnovers...

Browns reach out to Brian Hoyer to discuss new contract

So, about that whole benching thing… The Cleveland Browns, who find themselves in one of the worst quarterback situations in the entire NFL, have reportedly reached out to impending free agent Brian Hoyer in attempt to gauge interest in re-signing with the team. From ESPN.com’s Jeremy Fowler: “We’ve left the door open both ways,” said Linta from this week’s Senior...

Everything you need to know about the NBA All-Star game, Kyrie Irving’s contract, and the future

NBA fans voted in LeBron James as an Eastern Conference All-Star starter, but did not vote in Kyrie Irving despite his start last season and his reigning All-Star Game MVP honor. That snub will likely cost Irving – and by definition, save the Cleveland Cavaliers – around $9-10 million over the course of the point guard’s current contract. Late January is usually silly season...

Browns Pro Bowlers early selections in team drafts

While the Cleveland Browns were yet again left out of the NFL’s end-of-season tournament for all the marbles, they’re showing yet again that they have premium talent at non-quarterback positions. In what could be viewed as a concession that the Pro Bowl is a farce, the NFL stopped dividing the Pro Bowl teams into AFC and NFC rosters, instead letting prominent players coach and...

NFL on TV, freedom of speech and Ohio Sky… While We’re Waiting

I am thankful to have this platform and community of people to talk to. It’s my day to talk about what I want and hopefully you want to talk about the same stuff. Further evidence that football is a TV sport… The NFL is moving their London experiment further and is going to start all those games at 9:30 AM Eastern. The reason that they are making this move is that they experimented...

NBA All-Star starters announced; LeBron voted in, Kyrie and Love not

The 2015 NBA All-Star game starters have been unveiled, and the Cavaliers’ LeBron James is in the East’s first five once again. His most noteworthy teammates, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love, did not make the cut. This will mark LeBron’s 11th appearance in the All-Star Game. Love and Irving could still be selected as reserves, though neither is a lock. James received 1,470,483...

John DeFilippo discusses (more) change in Berea, has no idea who his quarterback will be

John DeFilippo sat under the lights of the Dino Lucarelli media room in Berea, Ohio, officially becoming the Cleveland Browns’ 15th offensive coordinator in their 17 seasons since the return in 1999. Joining the Browns after his second year of interviews with the franchise, it’s assumed that the man they call “Flip” actually wants to be in Cleveland, unlike the man he replaced...

Watch Eric Metcalf beat the Steelers with two punt return TDs

A blast from the past, it feels like I’ve probably even posted this before, but I don’t care. Back on October 24, 1993 Eric Metcalf returned two punts for touchdowns against the hated Pittsburgh Steelers. The Browns finished that season 7-9, but they won that game 28-23. And Metcalf’s 75-yard return for a TD was the game-winning score. The Browns trailed 23-21 at the time...

Watch LeBron James smash it after Kevin Love’s full court pass

(Click here to sign up for WFNY’s Cleveland Cavaliers email newsletter) The last time the Cavs played the Jazz, it was one of the most confusing games of the season. That’s saying a lot. It felt like Kyrie Irving and the boys were all dogs marking their territory in a weird way. Kyrie had 34 points and zero assists that game while the Cavaliers had six assists as a team. Those...
