Clearing the decks, six-pack.

More decks to clear and opening it up for a convo down below. 1.  Banner/Lombardi. No fresh perspectives here at Kanick on the Banner/Lombardi story; nothing that hasn’t been said before.  Here’s 27 posts from our “Browns punt 2013” category.  Enjoy. Peter King does a nice job describing the behind-the-scenes action that led to the bad Chud firing and then, karmic-ly,...

New themage.

If you’re reading this, you’ve noticed: I have a new theme going here.  This theme falls into the ‘responsive’ category of web-design.  Go ahead and resize your browser. Yeah. Better, right? I can’t tell you how much time I spent trying to figure out how to make my pictures not spill into the sidebar area, but it was way too...

Clearing the decks.

I haven’t cleared the decks in a months, so here’s three sporty nuggets on this snowy day… RIP Reboot. We’re all a bit poorer since Dave Kolonich closed up shop on one of our favorite blogs, Cleveland Reboot.  DK is superb at seeing through jive and marries that with a gift for interesting writing.  I particularly enjoy that he brings...

#CheddarBay 2013 Super Bowl.

So we’re down to the wire for Cheddar Bay 2013.  The Super Bowl is here and it is worth 25 points.  Thus we have three men standing: Frowns, 148.0; GrandRapidsRustlers, 135.0; ChuckKoz, 127.0. Everyone1 else is eligible for non-inconsequential second prize. I will update this post around 6pm tonight with the final point spread.  Picks will be posted 24 hours...

The email Jimmy Haslam should have sent.

Jimmy Haslam’s emails to season ticket holders have famously missed the mark thus far.  It got me thinking whether there was anything he could have said to ease fans’ worries.  I think there is.  A little humility, contrition, and honesty would go a long way. Dear Browns fans: It’s been a little over a year since I assumed an active...

#CheddarBay Champ Week.

Hi everybody!  No transcription issues this week.  Above are the lines and if I’m reading this correctly it goes: Pats +5.5 at Broncos Niners +3.5 at Seahawks. Brady vs. Manning.  Carroll vs. Harbaugh. Didn’t see that coming.  Wait.  HOW DID WE NOT SEE THAT COMING??  Only ChuckKoz went with the Pats/Broncos/Niners/Seahawks slate.. well done. _____ And here’s the Taiwanese animation...

A ray of hope.

So Mike Munchak is meeting with the Browns today.  Sometimes you just get lucky and the trick is knowing when.  Jimmy Haslam surely is nothing if not lucky.  And over the weekend at HOF lineman with a decent NFL head coaching record and impeccable integrity became available to coach your team. That’s good luck. But when this person is less...

The worst team in pro football.

I got busy with some of the “all is well” people in the WFNY comments1 the other day when it dawned on me: The Browns are the worst team in the NFL. It was the realization that, since Dennis Allen wasn’t fired, Oakland now has more continuity than the Browns.  Oakland now has more forward momentum.  You still think Oakland’s...

#CheddarBay Divisional Week.

Bang it here for latest news and rumors (as they say at ProFootballTalk).  Cheddar Bay news and rumors only here. Here’s your lines. Since there are only four games, I’ll just list them here: Saints +9 at Seahawks (435pm Saturday, Fox); Colts +7 at Patriots (815pm Saturday, CBS); Niners -1 at Panthers (115pm Sunday, Fox); Chargers +9 at Broncos (440pm...
