The View from Pluto

Sports are a huge part of life in Northeast Ohio:  the good, the bad and the ugly.  There's the Browns, Cavs and Indians, not to mention a wealth of college action.  Every Wednesday morning, sports writer Terry Pluto from the Cleveland Plain Dealer stops by talk about it all with Amanda Rabinowitz.

The Cleveland Browns are getting a backlash over their plans to eventually move training camp to Columbus, and seeking public money to do it.

The Cleveland Browns are signaling they’re moving on from troubled quarterback Johnny Manziel. In a statement Tuesday, the Browns said that Manziel’s actions run counter to their expectations of players off the field and undermines the reputation of the organization. 

Manziel is under investigation for a possible assault involving his ex-girlfriend over the weekend in Texas. WKSU commentator Terry Pluto says that after a tumultuous two seasons, it looks like the Browns are finally saying they’ve had enough of Manziel.

 

Cleveland Browns’ coach Hue Jackson has his work cut out for him over the next few months, and the 15-year NFL veteran says he’s up to the challenge. Jackson was hired last week as the team starts fresh following a 3-13 season. WKSU commentator Terry Pluto talks about why Jackson is the right fit for a troubled franchise.

Terry Pluto says Jackson was owner Jimmy Haslam's top target when the search began.
