Breakfast with Brownie
Morning Browns fans!!!!
Well after a long week of speculation regarding “Chokegate”, the league office has spoken, and the results are a draw.
Browns wide receiver Greg Little and Ravens safety James Ihedigbo weren’t fined for

their scuffle during the Browns 24-18 victory over the Ravens last Sunday.
Little ripped off and threw Ihedigbo’s helmet to draw a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty, but claimed he did it in self-defense after Ihedigbo choked him on the bottom of the pile.
Nobody will ever know exactly what went on at the bottom of that scrum, but as far as the league is concerned, it’s done and no fines will be handed out.
The league also didn’t see fit to fine Ravens defensive tackle Haloti Ngata or linebacker Daryl Smith for their unnecessary roughness penalties. Ngata body slammed Browns quarterback Jason Campbell to the turf, who in turn left the game briefly with bruised ribs.
As you know from yesterday’s Breakfast with Brownie, Campbell was named the AFC offensive player of the week.

Ravens safety James Ihedigbo’s take on Greg Little pertaining to ‘chokegate.’ “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.”
Browns wide receiver Greg Little’s take on James Ihedigbo pertaining to ‘chokegate.’ “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. “There’s a thin line between football and just morals. As a man, you’re not going to let a guy spit in your face and you’re not going to let a guy choke you. You’re not going to let a guy have (his) way with your kids or your family or your wife. That’s what it is as a man.”

>Former member of the Ohio State 2002 National Championship team and Super Bowl Champion Matt Wilhelm, not impressed with Teddy’s showing against Connecticut last night.
>According to Pat McManamon, Browns offensive tackle Joe Thomas doesn’t believe you need a good running game to win in this league anymore. Not quite sure I’d go that far, but I do understand it is a passing league now. Guess time will tell if this is a valid statement by the Browns All-Pro tackle.
