Browns victory over Saints: Craig on #DawgsontheRun

I didn’t get a chance to chat with Andy Baskin and Andre Knott after the week one loss to Pittsburgh due to technical issues. Week two there were no such issues and the Browns won the game. In case you missed it, here’s the video clip. Skip on up to about 7:20 if you want to get right to my contribution. The post Browns victory over Saints: Craig on #DawgsontheRun appeared...

GIF: Spencer Lanning destroyed by Saints defense

Browns punter Spencer Lanning has had a rough few weeks. First, there was the cleated left foot to the face and the subsequent deletion of the Twitter app from his phone. If that wasn’t enough, this past Sunday, Lanning took an extra point and turned into in to a trainwreck of a play. Blow the whistle! Blow the whistle! The fumble. The pile. Billy Cundiff skipping. The helmet bouncing...

Buckeyes bounce back; Eds rolls again

We have reached Week 3 in college and high school football. Ohio State got back on track this week after a tough loss versus Virginia Tech. One of the bigger upsets this week in college football came from Bowling Green when they beat Indiana. Baldwin Wallace started their season this week with a win over Bluffton. In high school, the top teams all played very impressive games and...

Suspended Josh Gordon will be allowed in Browns facility

One of the biggest problems with the previous drug policy the NFL had in place was that it practically excommunicated suspended players from receiving help from their employer. In the case of Josh Gordon, who was out with a marijuana violation, nothing could be worse than to have the team structure ripped away along with paychecks and actual playing time. A policy that’s designed...

Browns receive letter from kid looking to trade in Steelers hat

Even in Cleveland Browns town, we’ve all seen the infographic maps indicating how pervasive Pittsburgh Steelers fandom can be. But there are outliers who defy the suffocating blanket of black and pee yellow that makes up Steeler Nation. One Pennsylvanian kid in particular has sent a letter to the Browns after he joined the Cub Scouts and they gave him a Steelers hat as a gift...

Week 2 Winners and Losers

Your Cleveland Football Browns are officially 1-1. From the coin toss, the Mike Pettine-led unit came out swinging, using every last second to bring home their first home opener win since 2004. There is plenty to digest over the coming days, but we would be entirely too remiss if we didn’t take advantage of discussing Winners and Losers after an actual win. Who’s with me? WINNER...

“Someday we will figure out how to beat those guys”

When I was in seventh grade, one of the greatest movies of my youth was released. Major League, the fictional story of the downtrodden Cleveland Indians who were gutted by new owner Rachel Phelps so that she could relocate the team to Miami. I remember vividly seeing it on opening night at the now since out of business Cedar Center Theatre behind the Al-Paul car wash. About halfway...

Kyrie Irving wins FIBA MVP honors, leads USA to gold medal

It would appear that Kyrie Irving is all good. Just a week after taking a tough fall and leaving the game in the midst of a blow-out win, the Cleveland Cavaliers point guard comes back to the United States with a gold medal and a FIBA World Cup Tournament MVP award to add to his trophy case. In a 129-92 win over Serbia, Irving dropped 26 points on 13 shots, including 6-for-6 from...

Brian Hoyer offers perspective for NFL’s off-field nightmares

Nobody is going to go out and try to claim that the NFL had a good week last week. Despite kicking off its season and having plenty of games to talk about, the talk in and around NFL football was dominated by Ray Rice, Roger Goodell, and eventually Adrian Peterson. Rice and Goodell were topics for obvious reasons, but late in the week Adrian Peterson could be found turning himself...

Browns win home opener 26-24!

Mike Pettine won his first game as Cleveland Browns head coach in his second try. Who would have thought I’d get to say that when the schedule was revealed and the Browns drew the Saints in week two to open their home schedule? But win they did! The Browns sent the Saints packing with some extremely heavy 0-2 luggage as they won it on a last-second Billy Cundiff field goal 26-24...

Intense Browns take 16-10 lead into halftime against Saints

The first half of the Browns home opener is in the books with the Browns taking the lead into the locker room 16-10. I’m going to venture to say that the Cleveland Browns couldn’t have started with more intensity. Mike Pettine deferred on the kickoff. With that move, his defense looked inspired and the Browns home crowd made life miserable for the Saints. Paul Kruger was a monster...

Browns threatening Johnny Manziel package again

Maybe this is the week that we see the Johnny Manziel package. You know? The package of Johnny Manziel plays that had the Steelers prepping and talking ahead of the Browns’ week one loss? Of course Manziel didn’t see the field, even as CBS’ cameras strained to catch snippets of Johnny Football clapping after a play. Here we are again, on the cusp of week two and again it...

Saints’ poor tackling gives Browns’ offense plenty of opportunity

The New Orleans Saints march in to FirstEnergy Stadium as a 6.5-point favorite on Sunday. But after their Week 1 loss to Matt Ryan and the Falcons, one can hardly say that the former world champs are world beaters. Coming into the Opening Week, much of the talk surrounding the Saints involved their defense, which was thought to be poised for a big year in 2014. New Orleans splashed...

Still, most Buckeyes fans wouldn’t have pointed to last week’s game against Virginia Tech as the matchup that would trip up the Scarlet and Gray. Frank Beamer’s program...
