Who do you blame for the poor Browns’ performance against the 49ers? Antonio Callaway? Freddie Kitchens? Baker’s lack of facial hair? Let’s put that behind us and move on to a home game against the Seattle Seahawks!
Have you changed your mind on Freddie Kitchens after the Browns win against Baltimore? We discuss the Browns performance against the Ravens and their upcoming challenge against Jimmy G and the 49ers. We’re also talking about the end to the Indians season and whether Thursday, Sunday, or Monday Night Football is the preeminent platform for national football.
It’s the Main Event for the AFC North. Browns vs. Ravens. Baker vs. Lamar. Quarterback vs. Running Back. Who will be the dominant force in the AFC North? We’re talking Freddie Kitchens, Todd Monken, the Baltimore vs. Cleveland rivalry, and whether or not we still believe the Indians will make the playoffs.
The Browns rolled over the Jets, now it’s time to prove that this team is a force from the AFC North. Myles Garrett was a force on Monday Night, will Denzel Ward step up against Jared Goff? Is Lamar Jackson the best QB in the North? Are the Steelers dead? Are the Indians dead? Is it better to be dead (tanking) than average? We discuss all this and more on the latest episode of theI Still Believe in Cleveland Podcast!
Who’s got the best wide receiver trio in the NFL? New England with Antonio Brown, Josh Gordon, and Julian Edelman, or the Browns with Odell Beckham Jr, Jarvis Landry, and Rashard “Hollywood” Higgins? We also talk about that game against the Titans, what to expect against the Jets, and what the Indians need to do this week to make the playoffs. Football is officially back, will the misery return as well?
Will the Indians struggles be overshadowed by the Browns quest to win a season opener? Will Baker Mayfield hammer a stake into Marcus Mariota’s career? Will the Browns improve upon their Pro Bowl alternate kicker? Will Justin Fields win the Heisman? Will there be a Dylan Winder reference in this podcast? This now to find out!
The Browns preseason is coming to a close! Time for some NFL regular season Browns football! We’re talking Olivier Vernon, Austin Siebert, Baker Mayfield on Straight Up Steve Austin, and how the new XFL names should inspire a new name to label the Browns defense. We’re also talking Tribe and the Jose Ramirez injury, PLUS a fan question!!!
Oh you didn’t know? Cleveland ain’t no wasteland, especially compared to New York! We’re talking Baker Mayfield, OBJ, Browns preseason, and Indians postseason hopes on this week’s I Still Believe in Cleveland Podcast!
We’re getting ready for the Browns second preseason game against the Colts, Antonio Callaway, Andrew Luck, and how to top the preseason opener. We’re also tracking the Indians playoff race with the Twins, and if Corey Kluber or Carlos Carrasco will have a great end of season comeback. There’s no lack of puns as we try to find the Cleveland sports replacement for Taco Tuesday!
We are back for Season 4!! What all did we miss? How about some Trevor Bauer, Yasiel Puig, Franmil Reyes, Browns Training Camp, and the Cavs missing out on the NBA 2k20 trailer. We also debate whether or not Baker Mayfield is better at chugging beers or throwing touchdown passes in comparison to Tom Brady. It’s good to be back to talking Cleveland sports!

Will Drew’s prediction and promise of a Dylan Windler jersey if selected at #26 come true?

Will RJ Barrett get the Knicks into the playoffs? Do the Lakers keep the 4th pick? Do the Cavs keep the 5th pick? All this and more from a Cleveland-focused NBA Draft preview.
Ryan, Eric, and Drew discuss whether missing out on Gerald McCoy or losing Duke Johnson would be a bigger blow to the 2019 season. Is it more important to OBJ, Jarvis, or Antonio Callaway in minicamp? Will Nick Chubb or Denzel Ward have the better sophomore season? Will Austin Corbett or Greedy Williams make it into the starting lineup? The guys also play “Trade, Demote, or Start” with the Indians outfield and a juicy one with Trevor Bauer, Jose Ramirez, and Carlos Carrasco. A fun episode so...
Ryan, Eric, and Drew discuss the Indians’ recent series win in Boston against the Red Sox, and if their last 11 games put doubt into playoff dreams. Who will represent the Indians at the All-Star Game? Do the Raptors pose as a greater challenge for the Warriors than the Cavs did? Will Drake join the Browns bandwagon next season?
Ryan, Eric, and Drew discuss the possibility of Gerald McCoy joining the Browns, and if not, where would he go? How will John Beilein and Koby Altman’s “renaissance” period impact the Cavs’ win total next year? The guys also check in on their Indians first 50 games prediction and if the Tribe is trending up or down for their next 50.
Ryan, Eric, and Drew first talk the hiring of John Beilein as the new Cleveland Cavaliers head coach, and then move into some lottery talk. Who will the Cavs pick if they go 4th? How about 3rd? Do we trade the pick at two? Zion’s a given at one, right? The guys lay it all out prior to the NBA Draft Lottery.
Ryan, Eric, and Drew review the Browns defense heavy draft and if the AFC North made a jump ahead of the Browns. The guys also talk about the Indians and if Trevor Bauer’s YouTube efforts are helping to grow the game of baseball. There’s also a 2020 mock draft pick for the nerds.
Ryan, Eric, and Drew get into the drafting mood by selecting the Browns’ most probable wins in the newly released 2019 NFL Schedule. The guys also talk the return of Jason Kipnis and Francisco Lindor, and if this points to jump-starting the Indians’ offense.
Ryan, Eric, and Drew figure out how the Indians are in first place despite being near the bottom of the league in hits. Mike Clevinger has a back strain and will be out 6 to 8 weeks, who will take his place? Do the guys like the name, “Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse”? Favorite Channing Frye memories, would this be a better year for Hard Knocks, and are the Browns the most marketable team in the NFL?
