I’ll attempt to explain the rift I’ve seen play out every day these last few months between the fans and the media as simply as I can.
The Game is once again the biggest football game in the country. A win means superiority over your rival and celebration. A loss is sheer devastation. Just the way Woody and Bo would have wanted it.
Somehow in the last few months, the position of “Indians Starting Pitcher” has become more endangered than “Cleveland Browns Quarterback,” as the team’s exciting close to the season and start to their playoff run has simultaneously endured despite a rash of injuries to the rotation, begging the question: When will it catch up to them?
Just how loud has it been in Cleveland sports and what in the world would an AFC Championship win by the Browns and a subsequent Super Bowl berth sound like?
We are less than a week away from launching into the most spectacular, yet arbitrary, of all post-seasons with the Indians’ 68-year drought at stake.
So what would it take the Cavs to bypass the 57-win threshold? First and foremost, they have to learn to win without LeBron James.
This head coach came to Cleveland peddling a much different message than his failed predecessors.

My mouth did get me into about 11 fights in high school and college (unofficial record of 3-6-2). But I had no real attachment to MMA other than watching those early PPVs for the fledgling sport.
The times are a changin’. On the air in recent weeks I have used the term “Browns vacation” to describe the relationship many of you might have with the team this season. Some have taken it to be negative connotation
