No Jurevicius This Season; Rogers a Fullback?

The bad news: this did not come as a total shock, but it would seem as though WR Joe Jurevicius will be sitting out the rest of the season as he continues to recover from multiple surgeries in the past year.  I found this to be most disappointing at first, and the reason for why I wanted him to make a comeback this season, because this was originally supposed to be his last NFL season.  Instead, he has said that, if healthy, he will make a decision about playing another year.  Jurevicius is a competitor and a huge asset to the Browns, so I would expect him to be back in 2009 if his health allows him.  In his absence this season, Cleveland is really seeing what they had with him on the field – a reliable receiver that dominated on third downs.

The interesting news: Shaun Rogers as a fullback?  It is something that has been discussed by the team, and I can imagine why.  Some of the goal line offense has been putrid the last two weeks.  The team could certainly use a dainty bulldozer like Rogers to clear some space.  Even better, just give him the ball.  Any endzone celebration that man performs would be gold.  I’m reminded of Warren Sapp’s booty bounce

Just some news: I would just like to bring to light the newest Browns link I have included on the lefthand side of the page – The Cleveland Browns Examiner.  The writer over there is Aaron Calafato and, as a fellow member of the MAC, I felt the need to formally introduce him to you and you to his superb writing.  Be sure to head over there and keep checking DPD in the future to find out what happens when Calafato and I work together on some stuff.
