Quick story: I was working on the sidelines back in '97/'98 running a parabolic dish microphone. Play came at me hard and I jumped to the side to get out of the way swinging my dish hard to the left to protect it, and in the process smacked the head coach in the head. The team: Youngstown State. The coach: Jim Tressel

He's a great coach, one of the best of all time, but he isn't that good.

Yeah and the Browns would most likely not have drafted Brady and no Brady, Bellichek is probably an average coach.

One of the top 5 Super Bowls ever. Great comeback. It amazes me that 51 Super Bowls have been played and New England has been in 9 of them.

Modell would have found a different way to muck it up.

Keep in mind, the hypothetical is assuming that Cleveland still would have what became the Ravens organization, not the current expansion debacle.

My opinion, between Newsome as GM and Belichick as HC, they would probably have won a Super Bowl or two but not been on the level that the Patriots are.

That thought is really the essence behind my comment. The Browns were rolling along that year when Modell pulled the plug on the season/franchise/city/fans.

I'm not saying it would be equal to the New England Patriots. But had Belichek continued, Ben Rothlisburger would have been a Cleveland Brown. Cleveland would not have had 22 starting quarterbacks in 17 years.

Okay, it is not the regular season yet, but the Athletics beat the Diamondbacks 21-13 (twenty-one to thirteen).

Is that high of a score common in spring training?

They're going to cut or trade him. They basically traded cash and cap space for the Texans' second round pick.

Assuming it ends up this way, best trade Cleveland has made since the re-birth.

Wait a minute..................are you telling me that the Houston Texans called the Cleveland Browns and said, "We are willing to trade you our starting quarterback".

And the Browns asked; "What do want in return"?

And the Texans responded; "nothing......we will give you our 2nd round draft pick just to take this guy - then you can cut him or do whatever you want".

If that really happened, then pro football has passed me by. It's no wonder that I am having trouble finding my way in this world.

The only thing crazier than this would be if you told me the Houston fans are excited about this move and are throwing a parade!!

Houston fans are restraining themselves - parade route lined but parade not yet started - first float in gear when either Romo (or Glennon until the Bears got him) is acquired or the draft, whichever occurs first.
They were already so done with Osweiler - not because he's THAT bad, but their window is NOW. Think of it this way - Texans now would be similar to CBJ in the next five years if Bob were bottom 10 instead of top 5 goalie, and we had just acquired him. We'd be looking to move that contract and fast! So really not that much different...cap space and opening a spot the primary agendas. Browns have so much cap room it was easy for them to swallow Osweiler, especially if there are other suitors. Texans couldn't wait as Romo's recruiting trips start about now - they need the space in order to be able to make deal quickly, as there will be other suitors for Romo. Classic salary dump, just not usually seen in the NFL; more likely in NHL or NBA.

Two things. Bob is NOT Romo - thank goodness.

And not sure Texans will like what they get if in fact they get Romo; better than Osweiler, but not the savior either.

Yeah, good and fragile. If he couldn't survive behind Dallas's line, he's not going to last anywhere else. The next team to sign him will be lucky to get 6 games out of him.

Charles Barkley is not only rooting against UCLA...He's wearing the other teams Jersey on set because of the one player's Dad

Crew wins over Portland, **** yes!!!

I must admit though, when they gave up a goal in the 4th minute, I was thinking "Awww, not more of this ****!"

I'm not sure if there ever was a last time.

Torn as to who they were against (to the extent that I even have a second MLS team, Portland is it, mostly because **** Seattle and all they stand for and everything that they love, and the Flyers have a bit of a place in my heart for similar anti-Pittsburgh reasons), but I'll take it.

Blue Jackets 3 - Nashville Predators 1 - Nationwide Arena
Crew 3 - DC United 0 - Columbus Crew Stadium

The Blue Jackets were playing this late into April due to a lockout pushing back the end date of the regular season.

I'll have to check about any earlier occurrences later. Wikipedia's Crew season pages only go back to 2007.
