Never a doubt, right fans of the Cleveland Browns? Today's game involving the Browns at the Atlanta Falcons featured two teams heading in very different directions. Neither deserved to win, both coaching staffs failed their players, and both blew opportunities to ice away the contest. It was Atlanta that out-Cleveland-ed the Browns at home in the end, and Cleveland is now, at 7-4, a legitimate pos

Many general managers across the NFL were surely intrigued when the Cleveland Browns cut ties with Ben Tate, the owner of a career 4.7 YPC entering the 2014 season. Tate's debut season in Cleveland started out well, as he averaged 5.9 yards per carry over his first two games, but he completely fell off after that. Over his final six games as a Brown, Tate registered a dreadful 2.2 YPC. When he beg

Marcus Mariota entered the second lap of Royal Raceway with a significant lead on his Mario Kart counterparts, but Melvin Gordon threw a wrench—no, actually it was one of those thunderbolt power-ups—into his plans of strolling through the finish line with ease. Now entering the final lap with a few more significant obstacles in sight, it’s a neck-and-neck race to the finish between the two to esta

While the names Jason Heyward and Jeff Francoeur wouldn’t be mentioned in the same sentence for any reason other than that they’re both former first-round draft picks of the Atlanta Braves, the career trajectories of the two are eerily congruent. Both were highly touted and promoted, both had the fans, media and organization turn on them, both were expected to be more than they were and both were

I’ll say it: I’m an Ohio State fan. I’m also probably one of the most pessimistic Ohio State fans in the world. I watched the Virginia Tech game back in September and witnessed the struggles of a true freshman quarterback, an inexperienced and overwhelmed offensive line, and an always-frustrating defensive back seven. I watched Frank Beamer outcoach Urban Meyer, saw a former Texas Tech defect lead

"If you do not breathe through writing, if you do not cry out in writing, or sing in writing, then don't write, because our culture has no use for it." - Anais Nin "I write to taste life twice"--Anais Nin I am a wife, mother, educator, advocate who might occasionally--ok, more oft than not-- feel too much, think too much, cuss too much, over analyze, over-react, overly sensitive--but I don't know any other way to be--that's just me. If you find any of my articles witty, enjoyable, provocative, infuriating, aggravating, insightful or educational--then my work here is half way done.
