  • My Fiction Icks
    By Jay Grummel When you read as much as I do you start to notice common things in fiction that make you annoyed, upset  or even want to put down the book completely. I have a bad habit of not giving books much of a chance when they use some of these personal ‘icks’. However, […]
  • Poetry for Fall
    By Jay Grummel Poetry has a way of connecting us to the external and internal world. In poetry it is easier to feel a season and truly feel a piece due to this. Poetry has a subtle way of making the readers immersed into the world of the poem. With the air getting colder and […]

Looming football season raises speculation

Football fans are starting to get their fantasy leagues together for the season. It is a time of research and figuring out which players they want on their team and who will take them to victory.

High schools are getting ready to start having their teams in camps to prepare them for the upcoming games and possible playoffs.

That’s right, it’s training camp time. It’s what every football fan likes to hear, watch and predict about who is going to win.

Week one of the National Football League was last week. Over the weekend, though, the sports world heard news that might have been a shock for some and not so much surprise for others. According to Fox Sports and Sports World, Jerry Jones, owner of the Dallas Cowboys, was tempted to draft Johnny Manziel to the team, but decided to pick lineman Zack Martin instead.

The reason behind declining to choose Manziel was because it would not have made sense for Cowboys to have him and Tony Romo, their current quarterback, working together.

As many sports fans know, Manziel is the newest addition to the Cleveland Browns for the season as quarterback and was at Texas A&M. He was the number 22 draft pick for 2014.

The Browns started training camp and their first day in Berea on Saturday, and Manziel will have to compete against Brian Hoyer to get into their star quarterback spot. Hoyer, according to the Cleveland Browns website, had an ACL injury and had a bit of a rough start during camp. But, as long as Hoyer continues to improve from day to day, the Browns will have no problem keeping on the field. According to their site, he had a much better day on Sunday then he did on Saturday and the ball stayed in the air and not on the ground. The Browns will keep evaluating the film throughout the camp to see what is going on with Manziel.

In other Browns news, Josh Gordon hired an attorney in order to fight his indefinite ban under the NFL’s substance abuse policy. He was in a rehab facility after being arrested for driving while impaired. According to the Browns website, this will be the third time he has been in trouble under the rules. His attorneys are trying to get his sentence appealed, but if he loses he will have to wait a year before being able to play. Meanwhile, he is currently practicing with the Browns in training camp and has been making quite a bit of plays.

If the Browns can get it together, then they may have a chance of turning it around. Only time will tell whether Jones should have drafted Manziel or if he will make Cleveland stronger in the long run. And only time will tell whether or not Gordon will play this season. Either way, if Cleveland does what it needs to, they will have a chance of not only having a good football team but making the city proud of more than just one sport.
