Daily Dawg Tags: First win on the horizon?


Spanning the virtual globe to bring you the latest news about the Cleveland Browns and the NFL – these are your Daily Dawg Tags for Friday, Oct. 28.

Just when you think it can’t get any worse, the Cleveland Browns have to go an release an injury report.

With cornerback Joe Haden still limited with a nagging groin injury, the coaching staff couldn’t have been thrilled to see cornerback Jamar Taylor be limited in practice on Thursday with his own groin woes.

If Haden and Taylor can’t go, or give it a shot and have to exit Sunday’s game against the New York  Jets, then New York wide receivers Brandon Marshall (30 receptions, 472 yards and a two touchdowns) and Quincy Enunwa (32-409-2) could be in line for a big day.

Even with Ryan Fitzpatrick throwing them the ball.

NFL news:

Unwritten rules of football that need to go (ESPN)

"NFL broadcasts and coaching news conferences are full of football proverbs. Very often, these are simply explanations for a why a situation demanded avoiding risk, or at least delaying it. And very often, the numbers — while not perfect — tell us otherwise."

Why London deserves an NFL team (For The Win)

"Back up for a moment, and ask yourself a fundamental question: Why are sports leagues organized geographically? The answer is one of logistics. After all, there’s no business sense in placing franchises in smaller markets at the expense of some of the world’s biggest stories. No, the league did it because they had to. A football team from Detroit in 1920 — the year the NFL was founded — couldn’t make it to London for a week’s game. But a game in Columbus? Yea, they could make that work."

"Did you see what Andrew Hawkins did after he scored against the Patriots recently? It was one of the best post-touchdown moves I’ve seen in awhile.

I don’t mean he celebrated by doing the robot dance — he literally just walked away, like a robot."
