Browns trade Harrison to Eagles for Bell

All last week there were reports out of Cleveland that running back Jerome Harrison was not in head coach Eric Mangini’s doghouse. But now Harrison is not even playing in Cleveland.

In a swap of disappointing running backs, Cleveland gets Mike Bell and Philadelphia gets Jerome Harrison.

Philadelphia needs a running back who can work on the outside and catch the football. Harrison makes a lot of sense as LeSean McCoy’s backup in that regard.

Harrison has shown in the past that he can produce and be explosive when given a chance.

In Mike Bell, Cleveland is getting another power running back to play behind Peyton Hillis. But Bell is also a running back that three teams have given up since 2007 (Denver, New Orleans & Philadelphia). The Browns think he’ll fit right into their plans.

NFL MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL: 49ers hang with Saints, but can’t pull upset; lose 25-22

New Orleans place kicker Garrett Hartley launched a 37-yard field goal that barely clearly the crossbar as time ran out giving the Saints a 25-22 victory over the upset-minded San Francisco 49ers in San Francisco.

The winning field goal try was possible by a pass from Drew Brees to Marques Colston covering 30 yards.

The 49ers Frank Gore rushed for 112 yards on 20 carries.

It was Gore who scored on a 7-yard touchdown with 1:19 left in regulation and Vernon Davis made a close-call catch at the goal-line for the tying two-point conversion. The play was initially called no good by the referees, but San Francisco challenged the ruling and video-tape replays showed the 49ers were right and the two-point conversion was good.

No problem for the 2-0 Saints, who got the ball back and started to drive from their 30-yard line with 1:14 left. Brees hit Colston with a pass that put the Saints on the San Francisco 18 with 18 seconds left.

Drew Brees completed 28 of 38 passes for 254 yards and two touchdowns.

Browns drop to 0-2 as Chiefs rally to win game, 16-14

The game-by-game watch has started again for Cleveland coach Eric Mangini. The Browns let another winnable game get away.

The Browns dropped to 0-2 for the third straight season and fourth time in five years Sunday, losing to a much-improved Kansas City Chiefs team, 16-14.  That’s the same team that the Browns beat  last December 41-34.

The upcoming weeks will tell if Mangini will be able to survive under the Mike Holmgren regime. The Browns will be facing Baltimore, Cincinnati, Atlanta, Pittsburgh and New Orleans.

Brandon Flowers returned an interception for a touchdown, Ryan Succop kicked three field goals and Thomas Jones ran for a late first down on a fourth-down gamble by coach Todd Haley as the Chiefs improved their record to 2-0 for the first time since 2005.

Highlights for the Browns were Josh Cribbs’ 65-yard touchdown reception from QB Seneca Wallace.

Wallace started in place of Jake Delhomme, who injured his right ankle at Tampa Bay last weekend. Wallace was 16 of 31 passing for 229 yards, but he had the pass interception that was run back by Brandon Flowers for a touchdown.

2010 NFL season kicks off with a familiar matchup: Minnesota at New Orleans


The 2010 NFL season is upon with the opening game Thursday night from the Louisiana Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana, with Minnesota once again visiting New Orleans. It’s a rematch of the 2009 NFC championship game which New Orleans won on their way to a Super Bowl title.

If everyone recalls, the Vikings outplayed the Saints in several stat categories and might’ve won the game if they hadn’t committed five turnovers, three fumbles and two interceptions.

There is plenty of interest in the game because of the return of QB Brett Favre of Minnesota, who is starting his 20th season despite having surgery on his left ankle during the offseason. The controversial Favre almost retired for the third time.

Minnsota will need a strong defensive effort to stop the Saints explosive and speedy offense. The Vikings led the NFL with 48 sacks last season, led by defensive end Jared Allen’s 14 1/2. They’ll have to put pressure on QB Drew Brees.

The New Orleans offensive unit led the NFL in 2009 in total yards with 403.8 per game.

The Saints defensive unit has three new starters with free safety Malcolm Jenkins, holding the fort until All-Pro Darren Sharper continues his rehabilitation from offseason knee surgery.

Minnesota is without two of their key offensive players, WR Sidney Rice is injured and third-down back Chester Taylor went to Chicago for more playing time.

SEC likes Nashville as tournament site; extends contract

The Southeastern Conference has agreed to have the men’s basketball tournament in Nashville three more times during this decade, which means there will be four events through 2019.

The multi-year agreement was announced on Friday by the league. The SEC’s men’s tournament has already been scheduled to be played at Bridgestone Arena in 2013, and the event will also be in the Music City in 2015, 2016 and 2019.

SEC commissioner Mike Slive says that Nashville has always been good for the league. The tournament averaged 17,441 fans back in March in Nashville.

The conference has not made any decisions on any cities to host the tournament in 2017 and 2018. However, the SEC tournament will be in Atlanta in 2011 and 2014 and New Orleans in 2012.
