Breakfast with Brownie

Good Morning and Happy Halloween Browns fans!!!!

Today we are going to unveil something new here at Dawg Pound Daily, and we hope you enjoy it as much as we will,  putting it together every morning.

Every morning we will be releasing a piece that will be known as “Breakfast with Brownie”.

Each day “Breakfast with Brownie” will cover any Browns news from the day before, any league news worth noting, and some snippets from Twitter and Facebook to see what all of you are thinking about our beloved “Brownies.”

It is still a work in progress so we will be tweaking and fine tuning it as we go along as well.

More than halfway through Baltimore Ravens week, it’s pretty clear this is a must win game for the Browns heading into the bye week.  The trade deadline passed quietly and all the rumors were just that, rumors.  Josh Gordon is still a Cleveland Brown, which leads me to believe this front office believes in him and this team, and believe the season is not lost.

As we talked about in yesterdays piece,  Hump Day Blues…Cleveland Style,  the schedule starts to ease up after the bye week and there are several winnable games ahead.  If the Browns head into the bye week 4-5, there is no telling where they could finish within the division.



Brownie Bites

Safety TJ Ward, in his last season of a $5.088 million dollar contract, said he wishes to stay with the team that drafted him in 2010.  “I definitely want to be here,” Ward told  “If I could stay here my whole career that would be great, but I understand it’s a business.”

Since it’s Ravens week, we can’t forget about “Spitgate” in the first meeting between these teams this year.  In an interview yesterday with Ravens running back Ray Rice, he said it was intentional.  “It was two guys jawing at each other,” Rice said Wednesday. “I had my mouthpiece in, so when I went to say something back to him it looked as if I projected toward him.  But I had my mouthpiece in.  I was saying something, he was saying something. Obviously, that’s what happened. We’ll leave it at that.”  Guess we will see if there is any bad blood left over from the Browns side on Sunday.

> Let’s hope Cleveland’s Tony Grossi is on to something with this tweet.  In order to start winning the AFC North, the Browns definitely have to turn this stat around. Maybe the Ravens become a division victim this Sunday like the Bengals did a few weeks back.

    Mike, nothing about Davon”Dropsy” Bess and the second coming Greg Little ? What about the new members, Fragel and Edwards ? What are they doing in practice, will Edwards help with kick returns ? Since I’m from down here and have seen him play for the Panthers, I can tell you he can look real good and then bad . He does have speed and was a project at receiver and was getting better at the position but I think got beat out when Ginn showed promise .

    • Mike

      Hey Letterman!! As of yesterday, Edwards was back fielding punts during the portion of practice open to the media yesterday. I’m guessing he will be working in with the receivers as well. Chud is very familiar with him, since he was his Offensive Coordinator with the Panthers, as you know.

      • Letterman007

        I figured coach would work him at WR. He was improving here, but ran into a numbers game with Ginn., who also has improved . It was a good signing for the Browns and Fragel will help on the line but needs some work and seasoning! He only spent one year at tackle as he was a tight end previously.

        • Mike

          On a side note, Pinkston is nearing a return. Probably will see him back in the lineup the week after the bye against Cincinnati.

          • Letterman007

            Now if we could just get Hoyer back next week I’d feel better. I really don’t want to see Weed Be Gone again. But he is one play away. We still need some inside linebackers that can cover backs out of the backfield and tight ends. Good to see Horton make adjustments at half time. I can’t believe they did not before!

          • Mike

            I totally agree with you…I think Robertson is a liability in coverage and we need to address that in the offseason. Horton made some adjustments at half last week and we hold them to 3pts and 50yds..Go figure lol

          • Letterman007

            What about Groves, is he not healthy and can he play the middle? They also need to teach the wide outs to continue to try getting open if Campbell has to scramble.! They have a tendency to stand around or go in circles. This is where a good veteran WR would help. Coach Turner needs to quit calling 4 yard pass plays on 3rd and 7. Get past the first down markers and then catch the ball !!
