  1. WEEK 2 - BROWNS injury report and weekly updates.......and make that daily updates if necessary. ESPN Tuesday AM
  2. Should be leaving soon for the hospital. GO BROWNS!
  3. This is the same email I sent out to my friends and family. Hi everyone, Just to let you know we saw the surgeon today and went over things I will be going to St Elizabeth hospital on Belmont Avenue this coming Sunday September 15 to get things started. I will have clean up surgery probably Tuesday or Wednesday that week to treat the osteomyelitis (infection) of the left pelvis that is there. This all started in 2014 with a very small opening on my hip which Nancy had treated with no problem but it opened again and eventually doctors found out it had tunneled deep into my hip and we've been dealing with it ever since. Those type of infections can be stubborn especially if/when they get into the surrounding bones. I had osteomyelitis of the left femur in 2017 and was treated with massive amounts of antibiotics. I also had other issues like a bad kidney infection in 2015 and a small abscess that had to be removed this year and treated with antibiotics with landed me in the hospital and rehab for 3 1/2 months this year. We do not know what will happen yet with this surgery. This is NOT a minor surgery and I'm not exactly sure what he will do once the surgery begins but I will probably be in the hospital for the week and maybe more. It will be up to my ID (infectious disease) doctors to determine the course of treatment after that as far as either IV antibiotics in the hospital or oral medications or whatever. It will be up to the surgeon and my new MD on any rehab treatment necessary......we will find out about all of that later. SO we just get ready for all of this and go check into St E and see where we go from there, at least they have good cable TV to watch my favorite sports teams on! Catch you all later when we know more. Michael and Nancy
  4. BROWNS 2.5 point early favorite at the NY Jets week 2 O/U about 46 on MNF Check it out on the bottom of the page on MNF. http://www.vegasinsider.com/nfl/odds/las-vegas/
  5. No BROWNS WEEK 9? Hey no problem we still have to eat, so what's your favorite gameday or just weekend eats? Dine in or tavern hangout, carryout, favorite rib, chicken, pizza, sandwich, whatever or even cook at home what's up for gameday?
  6. Anybody going to or hosting a Sunday or Monday night tailgating party? What's cookin'?
  7. WEEK 2 - One man's opinion on the BROWNS naturally, easy pick? It's only Week 2, but both of these teams desperately need to show better than they did opening week. The Browns were blown out by 30 points at home to the Titans while the Jets blew a 16-point second-half lead in losing at home to the Bills. Cleveland ended a 19-game winless streak when it defeated the Jets at home during the Thursday night Week 3 matchup last season. Baker Mayfield rallied the Browns from a14-point deficit in that game replacing then starter Tyrod Taylor. The Jets’ defense takes a huge hit if linebacker C.J. Mosley and rookie defensive lineman Quinnen Williams can’t suit up due to injuries sustained in Week 1. SO what to do? One referee owes me big money from the game last week.....no seriously he does I sold him my old 1972 Pontiac and he hasn't paid me yet! Oh on the game no brainier, easy pick take the BROWNS -2.5 and the OVER 45.5 again, "do over" time for the BROWNS on MNF!

  14. From 2015..... https://www.sportscasting.com/nfl-how-week-1-can-determine-the-super-bowl-winner Most people think that an 0-1 start to the season isn’t the end of the world for their respective team. How many teams go undefeated anyway? As long as it doesn’t turn into a long losing streak, you’re team will probably be fine by starting the season with on a sour note and a loss. Or maybe they won’t be. It’s time for a history lesson to show you that if your team wants to win the Super Bowl, losing in week 1 could completely derail those aspirations. Now, listen up, take some notes, and realize the alarming credibility of these numbers and facts. Let’s begin. Chris Graythen/Getty Images Since 1990 when the playoff field expanded, a mere 25 percent of clubs have made the postseason after losing their first game of the season. This is compared to more than half of week 1 winners qualifying for the postseason since 1990. This shows how hard it is to recover from an early season loss. Obviously, this doesn’t mean that all hope is lost with a week one loss. Just last season, five clubs ended up making the playoffs after losing in week 1, those being the Dallas Cowboys, Indianapolis Colts, New England Patriots, Green Bay Packers, and Baltimore Ravens. Still, when 50 percent of teams are guaranteed to lose in the first week, this statistic is significant....... continued.......

  17. A PR/KR/position player with the right numbers and some longevity just might make it but the Hall would almost have to designate a category for it like coaches or contributors to the game. Who knows someday it might happen?
  18. I think special teams players should be looked at but realistically don't have much of a chance at the HOF. One that should be considered first is former Bills player ST/WR Steve Tasker.
  19. SO what are you guys having for GAMEDAY meals? I will probably have some mystery meat with mashed potatoes and yellow gravy Sunday and probably jello for MNF........yum.

  21. It almost comes down to just that you must beat the team ahead of you to retain your ALC crown. Plus the Tribe finishes the last 6 on the road Now the wild card is much more flexible looks like a 3 team race for 2 spots.
  22. The home field advantage has always been 2-3 points for a hundred years and it is more or less in rare occasions nothing more than that. Lines are set by oddsmakers based on the teams strengths and weaknesses and move on how people bet to even the betting pool, they like it 50/50 if possible so the sports books do not lose money.
  23. Why so many Heisman quarterbacks don't make it in the NFL, great scrambling or big gun guys who can handle college defenses -but- can't handle the rigors of life in the professional game. Current guys like Man-zel, Mariota, RG III, and maybe Winston or Bradford. Or oldies like Tebow, Weurfel, Leinart, Ware and remember Spurrier? But they are all over the the broadcast landscape.
  24. The 49ers are staying at the Holiday Inn in Boardman about 1mile from our house, were there in 2011 and 2012 also. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Just visiting 49ers stay in Valley between games SPO Correspondent photo / Robert Hayes Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo warms up for the San Francisco 49ers Wednesday at Youngstown State University. The 49ers, who played at Tampa Bay on Sunday, are staying in the Eastern time zone as they prepare for their game at Cincinnati this weekend. YOUNGSTOWN — After coming off of a 31-17 victory against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 1 of the NFL season, the San Francisco 49ers have made a pitstop in the Mahoning Valley this week ahead of their matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday. Farmers National Bank Field saw a bit of a transformation this week, as goalposts, hash marks and numbers were added to the soccer facility to accommodate the 49ers. “It’s been good, the Holiday Inn (in Boardman) has been nice to us,” coach Kyle Shanahan said after Wednesday’s practice. “Today was the first day I’ve been outside since we landed Sunday, so I haven’t seen much of Youngstown. The Holiday Inn has been great, they’ve treated us real well, the setup has been good, and coming here today practicing was great.” This isn’t the first time the 49ers have stayed in the Mahoning Valley. They have made stops in Youngstown in the past when they’ve had games in the Eastern time zone on consecutive weeks. Staying in Youngstown means the team doesn’t have to make the long flight home in between games. The 49ers have had connections to the Mahoning Valley dating back to when Eddie DeBartolo Jr. bought the team in 1977. They’re now currently owned by Denise DaBartolo York and John York. Correspondent photo / Robert Hayes Wide receiver Kendrick Bourne catches a pass during a drill at YSU. Shanahan believes that being able to stay on the East Coast is a big plus for his team. “I think it’s huge. I mean, I’ve learned that the hard way over these last couple years, not just the time change, which is very tough going back and forth, especially when you have an early game, but also just the flying. “How long it is and when you play the long game, how much you can swell up on the plane after and having to come back, so I think it’s a huge advantage.” Stambaugh Stadium wasn’t used for practice due to scheduling conflicts with other teams at YSU. “Everything is perfect, you know, we just need a football field and even though we were out on a soccer field, but it was lined with football lines so that makes it a football field, and it was great,” Shanahan said “Great turf out there, which was nice, and the players are in there lifting right now. I haven’t been in the weight room, obviously, but I hear it’s good, so I know our guys are happy.” Correspondent photo / Robert Hayes Richard Sherman stretches before practice. Shanahan spent one season as the offensive coordinator for the Cleveland Browns in 2014, but this was his first trip to the Mahoning Valley. He does however have a connection to Youngstown State coach Bo Pelini. Shanahan was a ball boy while his father, Mike Shanahan, served as the 49ers’ offensive coordinator from 1992-1994. Pelini was an assistant coach in San Francisco from 1994-1996. “I know him from that time.” Shanahan said “I know all the coaches names because I had to pass their laundry out, and they always had their names on their baggie. I remember all those guys and all the players from those years. “(Pelini) is a good guy, but I haven’t seen him for a long time.” On Tuesday, members of the 49ers took a drive to Williamson Elementary on the city’s South Side. Other players visited a children’s hospital. The team will practice again at YSU today, then one more time on Friday morning before flying down to Cincinnati.
