Cleveland’s Year; 2014

The year of 2014 is an exciting time to be a Clevelander!  We showcased Cleveland and were chosen to host the 2016 Republican National Conference.  There’s been several new restaurants, bars and store openings this year!  As many of you may already know, Cleveland sports are not known for being in the spotlight, but this past year we have been all over ESPN!  This summer we welcomed back LeBron James to the Cleveland Cavaliers.  Our Cleveland Indians were super close to making another playoff run this past October.  Our Cleveland Browns crushed the Pittsburgh Steelers in October and against all odds, the Browns are currently in sole 1st place of the AFC North.  I put together some news articles from this past year that have been major headlines for Cleveland! Enjoy these articles because I know I sure did!

1.) Cleveland hasn’t hosted the Republican National Convention since 1936. This summer the Republican National Committee chose Cleveland to host the 2016 RNC!

2.) There’s been numerous restaurant and bar openings this past year around Cleveland. Here’s a look at four that opened within 2014!  You know you want to try Mason’s Creamery, Urban Farmer, Crumb and Spigot and Butcher and the Brewer!

3.) How excited were you when LeBron James released his “I’m Coming Home” article in July of 2014? I almost fell out of my chair of shock and happiness when I heard the news!

4.) Brian Hoyer is a hometown kid from Cleveland. He played football at St. Ignatius High School and went on to play at Michigan State University.  Who would have thought a local Clevelander would have a record of 6-3(this season) and 9-3(his entire time with the Browns).  He’s a huge reason the Browns are successful this season and why we are currently in 1st place in the AFC North!

 

These are just a few of the wonderful things that are happened within the City of Cleveland this year.  With our sports teams winning and our city thriving, there’s no stopping us now!

CLEVELAND, Ohio — Quarterback Brian Hoyer made all of the dropbacks for the Browns in a 31-10 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday afternoon. Hoyer went 8-of-17 for 217 yards and one touchdown. He was sacked once.

Here is a capsule look at Hoyer’s performance:

Three words: Hoyer The Destroyer.

The business of winning: The Browns won their second straight to improve to 3-2, all with Hoyer as the starting quarterback. Hoyer is 6-2 in his career as a starter for the Browns.

Phone numbers: Hoyer’s offense, sans Josh Gordon, has amassed 15 touchdowns and seven field goals this season. Let that marinate.

The offense has scored 20-plus points in every game.

Protecting the ball: Hoyer has thrown one interception in 149 attempts this season. His offense has committed two turnovers.

Hard to believe, but true: Hoyer and the Browns routed Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers despite:

*Eight completions.

*Zero completions to their leader in receptions and yards, Andrew Hawkins.

*The loss of center Alex Mack to injury in the second quarter.

Teamwork: Hoyer played well, again — but he received plenty of help.

*The Browns rushed 38 times for 158 yards and three touchdowns. Running backs Ben Tate (25 carries, 78 yards, two TDs) and Isaiah Crowell (11 carries, 77 yards, one TD) showed the way.

*The offensive line performed superbly. John Greco replaced Mack without a hitch and Paul McQuistan came off the bench to fill Greco’s spot at right guard.

Left guard Joel Bitonio was a monster all afternoon.

*Offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan called another terrific game. Shanahan vs. Steelers legendary defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau turned into a mismatch.

Antithesis of dink and dunk: Hoyer’s completions went for 17, 42, 51 (TD), 24, 12, 31, 31 and 9 yards.

In Hoyer’s last seven quarters, 22 of his 27 completions have gained 9+ yards. Two of the five that haven’t were touchdowns (1, 6).
