Scott Raab helped build this podcast with his Monday morning episodes. We will forever be indebted to him for spending that time with WFNY and we're happy to have him on whenever he feels like it. He is in town for the Cavs playoffs and wanted to discuss ESPN's forthcoming 30 for 30 documentary Believeland. It's showing March 14th on ESPN.

We also discussed the Cavaliers, sports and life in general, and a little bit about life after Esquire magazine.

I have two guests coming up later this week, but I wanted tochat about the Browns and the final results of their drafting. Iwanted to talk about how silly it is to assign draft grades andtalk a little bit about what the job is ahead of Hue Jackson andthe coaching staff. 

Finally I wanted to talk about the Cavaliers, Timofey Mozgov,and the upcoming series with the Hawks. It's a bit of anon-preview, but that's what you get from me. 

Finally I am avoiding talking about the Indians... for now.

The Cleveland Browns traded down before finally making their pick, but we covered it all. We discussed what happened ahead of the Browns from Carson Wentz and Jared Goff to Joey Bosa, Ezekiel Elliott and the rest of the drafted Buckeyes. 

Finally the Cleveland Browns selected Corey Coleman, Wide Receiver, Baylor and made him the first wide receiver off the board. We discuss that and everything else that happened with the Cleveland Browns.

It's NFL draft day 2016 and I had some thoughts for you on the Browns and all the Buckeyes. I also discussed the Cavaliers' playoff layoff waiting for other series to complete. Is the layoff good or bad? Finally I spoke about micro-charity and the Twitter bullying that's in the news lately.

It's been a long week and I haven't had much of a chance to podcast. I attended the most recent Cavs game which is a mixed bag. It gives me something to talk about, but it saps one of the most opportune time periods that I use to record this very podcast. I had a few moments, so I recorded my thoughts on the Cavs and also the Browns recent trade down in the NFL draft. 

Enjoy. Tell a friend. Subscribe on iTunes or Android.

It's been a while since we heard from our friends at the Browns Friday Fumble. But the NFL is a 365-day-a-year sport at this point so with the release of the full schedule, the boys decided to get back together to project wins and losses.

Dave and Dylan took a break from their nearly constant draft analysis, to take a look at the newly release schedule and break each game down for you guys. 

Enjoy this week by week preview of each and every game, and get a first look at how the Browns will do this year.

I'm trying really hard not to be a hater. Kobe Bryant is a great player. His accomplishments are obvious and great. That said, the wash, rinse, repeat retirement tour that we've come to accept in professional sports felt misused on Bryant. If there was ever a guy who should have walked away more quietly it was Kobe Bryant.

I discuss that at length, hopefully without being unfair to Bryant and the great things he's done. Still, I think we need to have a talk about authenticity and magic and sports coverage in the wake of it all.

Apr 12, 2016

The Cleveland Browns have held tight waiting for Josh Gordon for a long time now, and it's been commonly held that waiting was the only rational business decision. I feel like I've asked this question a million times now, but having seen Josh Gordon's latest trials and tribulations with drug testing, is now the time when they finally say enough's enough? Is the Hue Jackson, Sashi Brown, Paul DePodesta triumvirate going to find enough business reasons to hold on one more time and wait?

Also I discuss the Cavaliers locking down the number one seed and resetting the table for the playoffs in terms of record. I talk about the Warriors' amazing season and whether or not it was the best way to prepare for the playoff season. Trying not to be a hater, versus looking for a truth.

Lastly I talked about the NFL draft and just how highly Carson Wentz and Jared Goff project to be. Are they projected to be better quarterbacks than Joe Flacco and Andy Dalton? Do they project to be better than Ben Roethlisberger? Do they project to be better than Robert Griffin III?
