Optimistic

Optimistic

 

Yes, you read that right. I’m optimistic. We in Cleveland are optimistic. As you know from our history, that’s not how we usually are. However, I am optimistic about ALL of my sports teams! Imagine that! In Cleveland!

 

The most amazing feeling is about the Browns. Yep, those Browns. The cant draft, can’t assess talent, can’t keep a front office, can’t pick Veterans, have no QB and basically stink Browns. ...

The Gut-Feel Rankings

Rash predictions in the midst of organizational turmoil are the perfect thing to stay away from, and here's one more reason to think that way. We're partway through FA with an initial flutter quieting down but big moves still happening. The draft is coming with teams' picks still to be determined due to trades... which means trading is ongoing. NFL.com has listed its latest mid-frenzy power rankings. In most cases they're not shocking, but some are. That's an inspiration to do ou...

The Butler/Hightower Opera

Posted by Radatz on March 12, 2017 at 2:55 PM Comments comments (4)

 

With NE being so active in the market lately questions about how to handle roster attrition have slid to the back burner. So far they've lost Logan Ryan, Jabaal Sheard, Martellus Bennett and some others with more (Long, Blount etc.) no doubt to come. A number of their acquisition moves have anticipated or reacted to the situation. The two most visible issues are Hightower and Butler.

 

Here are defensive players who've arguably made two of the key plays that enab...

Trade Winds Blow in NE

Posted by Radatz on March 10, 2017 at 9:20 PM Comments comments (9)

 

Things looked far from certain for the Champs in weeks leading up to the start of free agency. They had too many contracts expiring, especially on defense, to assume the same group or even something resembling it would return. Some big names were involved.

 

Now two days in, uncertainties continue but they appear to have anticipated any carnage to this point. The news:

 

Colt TE Dwayne Allen was acquired for a 6th-round pick.

ONLY IN CLEVELAND FOLKS!


Bogut breaks his leg within ONE MINUTE of playing!


Are you kidding me?  Seriously?


It's the Curse!  It's the Curse!  Cleveland is cursed!  People have underestimated us in the past and we'll come through!  The way the Cavs have been playing is making one reconsider that right now!


I wanna be Rad.  I wanna be Rad!  If my baseball team doesnt win, then my foo...

Your Way Too Early 2017 NFL Division Standings

Posted by Radatz on February 16, 2017 at 12:25 AM Comments comments (8)

 

Welcome to the NFL Way Too Early Divisional Predictions for 2017. No draft yet? No coaches in a few spots? No free agency yet? So what? We'll redo all this if it's worth doing around June perhaps. I bet not more than a couple of teams change spots.

 

 

AFCE: Not a big challenge, really.

 

NE: How much of the champs' roster will be intact? Will they draft well? Will the Jets' impending housecleaning bring some affordable vets? Who knows...

Afterthought

The Super Bowl was as momentous as such an occasion can be, giving New England the throne in dynastic runs in the SB era, though a good argument could have been made even had they lost. But in years to come as retrospect takes over (which may not be for a while yet) the most recent win will lose precious details that only viewers can appreciate.

 

Statistics don't lie, but they can be unintentionally deceptive. Anyone looking back at the box score will see things...
