Breakfast with Brownie
Good Morning Browns fans everywhere!!!!
Unless you were sleep walking through the day yesterday, all the news was focused on “chokegate”.
Browns wide receiver Greg Little said he ripped off Ravens safety James Ihedigbo’s helmet and flung it during

Sunday’s matchup because Ihedigbo was choking him on the bottom of the pile. If you take a look at the picture circulating all over the internet yesterday, it was clear Ihedigbo’s hands were around Little’s neck.
When asked about the incident, the Browns wide receiver had this to say. “I know the ref was saying ‘let go of his face mask,’ but he was choking me, so I’m not (going to let go),” said Little, who was flagged 15 yards for unsportsmanlike conduct. “There’s a thin line between football and just morals and if you’re a man, you’re not going to let a guy spit in your face, and your not going to let a guy choke you.”
When asked about the incident Wednesday Baltimore Ravens safety James Ihedigbo had this to say. “I’m not a dirty player by any means. He’s saying what took place that didn’t take place. The refs would have seen it. Other players would’ve seen it. And I would have been punished for the play as well.
“He lost his cool. He threw my helmet. Therefore, the penalty was given on him. To sit back and say now all this other stuff happened and it’s Wednesday and the game happened on Sunday is kind of ridiculous to me.”
It’s definitely safe to say there is no love lost between these two, and we will keep an eye out for them the next time the Browns and Ravens meet.

Cowboys Hall of Fame wide receiver Michael Irvin revealed Wednesday that he has been mentoring Browns wide receivers Josh Gordon and Greg Little. When asked about Josh Gordon’s talents, Irvin had this to say. “Phenomenal talent,” said Irvin. “Phenomenal, phenomenal talent. And I’ve talked with Josh quite a few times about what’s ahead for him and the possibilities and all the things that he can do. He can be considered one of the best in this league if he’s willing to make that kind of commitment.”
Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon on Michael Irvin being a mentor to him. “Mike has definitely been a mentor to me the past two seasons,” said Gordon. “I’ve been talking to him and he’s been great to me. I talked to him before the (Wednesday) meeting actually and me and him have a great understanding about the game. Our backgrounds are the same and we definitely relate to each other in a lot of ways. I look up to him. He’s a great guy.”
Browns wide receiver Greg Little on Michael Irvin helping him out as well. “When I came into the league, he talked to me, Julio (Jones), A.J. (Green) and Randall Cobb,” Little said. “We all keep in touch and all try to stay in tune with each other. Anytime I see Mike he always has words of wisdom for me.”
