Weekly Film Study

The best thing about yesterday's game is that it was good enough that I want to rewatch it today. That gave me an idea. I think a good idea for a weekly piece would be a post where people can...

Packaged Plays - Weeden's Specialty

1

Would love to see Shurmur and Childress incorporate some of this into the Browns offense. Maybe not right away but once Weeden is comfortable, this could add a lot. Further down the road, if there is a coaching change, I'd really like to see a spread-based offensive mind come to Cleveland. It would be fun to watch attacking offensive football.

I don't mean to reinvigorate the whole debate, just a cool look at some alternatives. There's a second part with more suggestions on the site as well.

Greg Cosell on Trent Richardson's Value

5

I don't think it's a stretch to say that Cosell is one of the most respected film evaluators around the NFL today. Therefore, when he says Trent Richardson is the best player in the draft, I listen. He's not saying this to get page views or stir up controversy. It's a considered opinion and a well-written article.

Confirmation of the Browns offer for the #2 Pick

24

Thought this was interesting. I'm pretty convinced the Browns got shut out of the deal. It's the only way they didn't get the pick, given the offers reported here.

Who should the Browns target next at QB?

Simple question. Now that the Redskins have ruined everything, who should the Browns add this offseason at QB?FYI, if you choose Colt McCoy, you get banned from this board forever.

I'm trying to start a new soccer website. It's a way for people who have watched matches to rate them so that people who haven't seen the matches can decide which to watch, without spoilers, based on the ratings. Please check it out and vote on the Fulham match this weekend!

Pac-10 to expand to 16, invite half of Big 12?

8

This would be a shocking expansion related development. I don't see why Texas does it.

Big Ten could expand as soon as July 1

3

According to this article, and heavily relying on an article by Teddy Greenstein the Chicago Tribune, it looks like expansion news might be quicker to develop than previously expected. It also sounds like the Big Ten will not stop at adding one, but is more interested in adding three or five teams. Very exciting news, in my opinion.

Mike Leake skips Minors, Reds are awesome

10

Mike Leake, drafted eighth overall in June 2009, will start the season as the Reds 5th starter. I think that's pretty cool. Hopefully he does well.

Interesting thoughts about the negligible difference between the non-waiver and waiver deadline this year. The second link is here. The Tribe has signed two shortstops and a pitcher from the Dominican.

The Indians should trade for Roy Halladay...

It occurred to me recently that the Indians should trade for Roy Halladay OR they should trade Cliff Lee and others to re-stock for 2011-2012.  Right now, it would seem the Indians are in between...

Nyjer Morgan is a Valuable Asset...

Interesting piece by Dave Cameron, linked to by Rob Neyer. Neyer sort of counterbalances Cameron's enthusiasm but an interesting read from both sides, especially given some recent discussions about the value of defense on this site.

Should Dolan Fire Shapiro?

I don't really have a coherent argument in favor or against of this proposition.  I'm not prepared to try and convince everyone one way or the other.  In fact, I'm not sure where I stand yet. ...

"Pavano Pitching Well" - FanGraphs

8

My main emotion upon reading this is: "How is it that the Carl Pavano gamble ends up paying off so well so far and each and every bullpen move has been an unmitigated disaster? Sports aren't even close to fair!!!" Then I start swearing under my breath. Let's sweep the Reds and get back in this thing.

Best take I've read on Cashman for a long time by a writer I really enjoy. Sorry for pre-emptively breaking the Yankees moratorium.

Heath Bell does not care for ESPN

Specifically, Baseball Tonight. For some reason, he seems to think they focus more on the big East Coast teams. Hm. By the way, feel free to use my tag for all future Manny Ramirez/Jim Thome coming back to Cleveland threads.

An Unknown Number of Young Baseball Prospects Detained Overseas

"Major League Baseball has officers in the Dominican Republic who are cooperating with the FBI in at least two major scandals involving the Chicago White Sox and Washington Nationals involving falsified birth records, kickback scandals, and smuggling of performance-enhancing drugs that evaded security -- and former Sen. George Mitchell's investigation into the use of PEDs in MLB -- until recently." -Peter Gammons

Indians claim Jae Kuk Ryu off Waivers from Padres

21

The Indians have added more bullpen depth. Castro says this guy's ERA in Padres camp was 10.61. Some people would say that's high and he must not be any good. I'd say it's Arizona and it's Spring Training.
