Three Things To Do On Sunday Other Than Watch The Browns

The Cleveland Browns bye week is this Sunday and it allows and abundance of productivity to take place in the 0-12 team’s absence.

Here are three things to do while the Browns are idle Sunday afternoon:

1. Enjoy another game at the 1 pm slot?


Look, when the Browns are on– I have to watch. It’s ugly. It’s brutal. But I am a Browns Backer. But this week? I can pick whichever game I like, or the Redzone Channel for fantasy football purposes. In particular, I’ll keep my eyes on two games. The Chiefs play in Atlanta and the ‘Phins play the Ravens at 1 pm. I’m ready for a stress free Sunday.

     2. Get some work done? 


I mean, I’m a college student. No Cleveland Browns game on? I have work off, as well? Sounds like primetime for getting some work done. Procrastination will surely take place as the 1 pm games begin, but it is what it is. More work will be done without the Browns being active.

3. Sleep


I don’t know. I usually fall asleep in the third or fourth quarter of each Browns game. The Chicago Bears and San Francisco Giants play at 1 pm? That’s the best alternative to a Browns’ Sunday I’ve ever heard. Matt Barkley v. Colin Kaepernick… the matchup of the weekend, as well as a great nap.

It’s Superman’s time to shine

Peyton Manning facing off with Cam Newton seems to be the talk of Super Bowl 50. The thing is, they don’t lineup on the same side of the ball. The team that comes out on top will be the one best suited to take down the opposing defense. Continue reading “It’s Superman’s time to shine”

Top 5 Super Bowls of the past 10 years

Super Bowl Sunday is fast approaching, but in the mean time I thought it would be fun to look back and reflect on the past. Not every Super Bowl has an iconic play, such as Malcom Butler’s interception at the goal line against the Seahawks last year. Some are just blowouts, a prime example would be the ‘Hawks drubbing of Denver in Super Bowl XLVIII (43-8). My top five Super Bowls focus both on late game heroics, and the significance/circumstances surrounding the result. Here they are in ascending order: Continue reading “Top 5 Super Bowls of the past 10 years”

Just How Bad Have The Browns Been In The Draft?

The best season for any Cleveland Browns fan is the offseason. Sad? Sure, but the NFL Draft is the Dawg Pound’s Super Bowl. A Super Bowl we always seem to lose. Every franchise will have a handful of first round busts in their history it’s inevitable, but the Browns take it to another level. Continue reading “Just How Bad Have The Browns Been In The Draft?”

Resiliency and the Browns Fan

I have three friends visiting from Indiana this weekend to attend the Browns-Bengals matchup Sunday. Two of them happen to be Bengals fans, and I am beginning to question my decision to invite them as I preview the upcoming game. They are sitting pretty at 9-2, while we sit at 2-9. Sh*t talking will undoubtedly take place, coldly directed at my Cleveland friend and I. Continue reading “Resiliency and the Browns Fan”

Jerry Jones, Cowboys proving karma real

When Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones signed defensive end Greg Hardy, I silently wondered if a phenomena called “karma” would come into play. Hardy’s suspension was reduced to four games; significantly less than the initial punishment of ten, and Jerry was all smiles. Continue reading “Jerry Jones, Cowboys proving karma real”

Dear Coach Pettine

It is November 24, and quite bluntly, I am pissed off. I believe a week ago you named Johnny Manziel your starting quarterback for the remainder of the season? Does that sound correct to you? Okay, cool, we’re on the same page then. He played well against Cincinnati, and again performed admirably against the Steelers (in a 30-9 loss, one of the only positives). You even said so, but of course its Cleveland and Monday a video surfaced of your enigmatic quarterback nodding to “March Madness” in an Austin nightclub with a bottle of Dom Perignon in his hands. Concerning? Sure, Mike. It is not what you want to see from the guy, I understand that. He has a history, but has done his job in the building this season (probably better than you have performed at yours, more on that in a minute). The statement released by the Browns said this decision was yours, and yours only. You are an idiot, Mike. Lets take a step back and review your current standing as the Browns head coach, this should be fun. Continue reading “Dear Coach Pettine”

Peyton Manning intends to play in 2016?

Shockingly, there is a rumor Peyton intends to suit up again in 2016, even if it is not with the Denver Broncos. I love Peyton Manning, great guy, funny commercials and a hell of a pizza chain. But are you kidding me Peyton? I was at FirstEnergy Stadium watching him play my Browns a few weeks ago disgusted. Of course we lost, but Peyton looked awful throwing the ball. I mean, his interception in overtime was dreadful. It is truly saying something that I would rather have Josh McCown quarterback the Browns next season than Peyton Manning. I know it must be difficult, but hey bud, you’re just done. No athlete should desire to go out in the manner Brett Favre did. Favre looked like Uncle Rico his last year with the Vikings. Scratch that, Favre looked awful; Peyton has been Uncle Rico this season. Continue reading “Peyton Manning intends to play in 2016?”

Something about Sundays

I loathe Roger Goodell, and his until recently tax-exempt league, he is the commissioner of. He is a smart f*cker, though. His ingenious exaggeration of the “Deflategate” saga involving Tom Brady’s suspension dissuaded the media pursuing further discussion of the domestic violence nightmare. For all we know Kraft and Goodell could have had the whole thing planned, the stogies and Woodford Reserve waiting in the league’s office. Continue reading “Something about Sundays”
