The Super Bowl and the most apropos use of this category in a long time

Perhaps you saw the Super Bowl? Do you remember the part where the Seahawks ignored their inner Woody Hayes, threw an interception (more like¬†gifterception, amirite), and New England won the Super Bowl? Oh, sorry, I didn't realize you'd just had a lobotomy. Very inconsiderate of me. Anyway, Regressing (affiliated with Deadspin) finally put to rest…

The remainder of the Browns’ draft

I'm not sure what to think of Tom Heckert as a drafter. He seems to get fixated on certain guys and takes them whenever he can get them, which means that he'll get slammed a lot for reaches. That strategy can work great in Madden if you've scouted somebody nobody else has, but a couple…

Browns draft (thus far)

The Browns made two picks in the first round. Cleveland traded some later round picks to go from #4 to #3; given that we got Trent Richardson out of the deal and lost only a 4th, 5th, and 7th round pick, I'm totally okay with that. Given one of the categories for this post --…

Browns go for Mike Wallace?

There was an interesting article on Grantland that recaps the repercussions of the Rams-Redskins draft trade. Bill Barnwell says that, of all the teams looking for a new QB, he thinks the Browns are in the worst position. He's probably right. SF is out of contention for Manning after signing Alex Smith for a three…

Smart football indeed!

I originally went to Grantland.com because, like many Americans, I think Bill Simmons is funny. But thanks to his website, I've discovered a gem of an article (and site, really, because Chris Brown knows his stuff). Terry Pluto¬† (Browns writer for the Cleveland Plain Dealer) has made a lot of comparisons between Alex Smith and…

Hopefully the end of the Hillis saga

Yes, Virginia, there really is a Madden cover curse, only for Peyton Hillis, it's affected his brain. The Browns, apparently, are done. The reporter suggests Hillis might get cut this season, which would be great news for Montarrio Hardesty if he weren't also injured. Our third string running back didn't make it out of camp…

Hopefully the end of the Hillis saga

Oh Peyton. Why couldn't you have just said this weeks ago? Each day, I begin to think it's entirely the media and his agent that stirred up this shitstorm in the first place. If he said this during training camp, this would not have been a nagging issue all season. Maybe with this behind the…
