Loggains interview, JFF must start now, and power ranks.

Let’s chat about some of the hot-button topics of the week. The Dowell Loggains interview. Here’s the money quote in Browns’ QB coach Dowell Loggains’ interview with Bo Mattingly12 “We’re sitting there and they keep showing Johnny on T.V. and Johnny and I are texting and he shoots me a text and he says, ‘I wish you guys would come...

Browns draft review and sidebars.

Remember when I would pump Kolonich’s tires because I really like what he said and how he said it?  Well Chris Pokorny is becoming the new Kolonich because his draft review (and most all of his pieces at DBN) hits on everything I wanted to say both in content and structure.  In fact, I’ll give an all around atta-boy to Dawgs...

Breaking: Cabot and Grossi non-plussed by Browns’ absence from Bridgewater’s Pro-Day fail.

You can’t win with Browns beat reporters. Teddy Bridgewater took himself out of consideration for the Browns at #4 yesterday but that’s not the lead from your Browns’ beat reporters.  Oh no…  after investing heavily in the must-take-one-of-three-QBs-at-#4 narrative for the last three months, Grossi and Cabot won’t give up their poor analyses without a degree of pissy-ness.  Here’s what...

Browns’ moves confuse ESPN.

Browns made a couple moves yesterday and dammit I let myself get tweaked by a douche-y ESPN column.  So I’m going to do the Dansby/Whitner eval and at the same time, I’ll try to help an ESPN national NFL writer grasp what’s going on in Berea.  For Kevin Seifert is perplexed: Speaking of age, the Browns got older at safety and...

Bernie nailed it.

. In one of my first posts here, I shared that I’m not a Bernie fan. … Love my Browns fans but Kosar is your Herpes flare-up.  Your bad sweater.  Your eighth Jim Beam.  Really sometimes makes it hard to co-exist. But one thing I have said and will always say about Bernie:  he was as good at reading defenses and...

Clearing the Decks, bitchy edition.

I try hard not to be “that blogger.”  Bitch, bitch, bitch.  “You know what grinds my gears?”  All that stuff.  I did What’s Great about Cleveland and Adopt a Brownie.  Pointed out the good side of Dan Gilbert.  Hell, I’ve even got a “What if SUNY-Stony Brook got serious about football” piece in my drafts. I try to bring more than bitch....

Et tu, Pluto? //updated alt title: Why Pluto is a pro.

The Plain Dealer has hit rock bottom.  When normally reliable Terry Pluto makes a mistake that no blogger would make, it should be a wake up call. Investigation of downgrade does not equal downgrade. _____ Above is a screen cap of the cle-dot-com webpage of Pluto’s Sunday article.  It states a downgrade occurred at PFJ. That’s major news. I wondered...

#bringbacknaoko

Every newbie watching the Bruins on NESN since 2008 has shared the same ‘wait whut?’ moment:  when did NESN start participating in MIT Job Fairs?  Who’s this Bruins locker room reporter speaking in a tone like she’s in the tower at Augusta and conducting interviews as though she knows the game?  Why are the players smiling and unguarded when she talks...

La Canfora’s hatchet job on Heckert.

Jason La Canfora, first with the Lombardi-to-Cleveland rumor, is out with a grotesquely biased assessment of the talent pool Tom Heckert bequeathed to his boy.  It reads like Mike Lombardi submitted an article to CBS which Jason La Canfora posted under his name.  Worse, Lombardi wrote it such that it reads petty and small and brimming with axe-grinding.  It’s also just factually...

Brad Marshmont and great sports talk radio.

. Don’t want to jinx anything but.. the Bruins are looking really strong after last night’s shutout.  The local radio had some stats about how the team who wins a 3OT game almost always wins the next game and are 5-2 winning the series.  That hasn’t happened with the Blackhawks.  What has happened is the “Ken Dryden effect.”  Throw enough...
