Good Morning everyone and hope you all had a great Halloween!!!

As we head into November, the Browns host the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday,  before their much-needed bye week.

With the loss of kick returner Travis Benjamin last week, the Browns brought in former Carolina Panthers wide receiver Armanti Edwards.  Edwards has fielded punts during the portion of practice open to the media.  In his career, he has returned 36 punts for a 7.0 yard average and 15 kickoffs for a 19.7 average.

The punt return game has been a huge plus for the Browns all year, so hopefully Edwards will step up and prove he is a worthy replacement.

Here is an interesting bit of news coming out of Berea,  that I know you all would love to hear.  Speaking to reporters yesterday, quarterback Brian Hoyer said he is eyeing a mid-April return to the practice field.  Just know he is working hard to get back Browns fans, considering his trainers have had to back him off from working too hard.

Safety TJ Ward spoke to reporters yesterday and believes Phil Taylor will bring his “A” game Sunday when he meets running back Ray Rice again.  On Thursday, he warned that Phil Taylor is not the kind of guy you want to spit on, even if it’s an accident like Rice said it was.  “I don’t see any reason why you’d want to give Phil Taylor any extra motivation,” Ward said. “So I’m sure he’s going to be on his  ‘A’ game this week.”

Cornerback Joe Haden believes the Browns can finally snap their losing streak against the Ravens.  His theory is a pretty simple one.  “The Ravens aren’t the Ravens of old.  They’re still really good, a really talented team, a division opponent, but at the same time, our team is a whole different team.  It’s a different squad.  We still haven’t gotten over the hump, but there’s no reason why we can’t.”

>After seeing this vote brought to us by Russell S. Baxter of Yahoo, it makes you wonder when there will be a team from a decade that isn’t between 1940-1990 to be voted on as the best Browns team in history.  Here’s hoping 2014 is a possibility!!

>Fox Sports NFL chimes in on one of last night’s highlights during the Cincinnati Bengals vs. Miami Dolphins game.  I chose this one, considering for a little while it looked like the Browns might lure Grimes to Cleveland.

Miami Dolphins 22  Cincinnati Bengals 17

In bizarre fashion last night in overtime, Dolphins defensive end Cameron Wake sacked Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton in the end zone for a safety.  The Dolphins go on to beat the Bengals 22-20.  It is now known as the “Walk-off” sack.

    Hi Mike, not much to say that you haven’t covered. I wish Hoyer well and hope he can come back better than he was, health.wise! I would expect to see Edwards in the passing game after the bye week. It’s time to step up and start the second half of the season on a good note. What better way than with a victory over the Ravens !!

      Hey Letterman!!! I agree with 100% of your comment. If they can get a W this weekend, it would be huge going into the bye in this pretty open division.
