Is the head coach the same? Is there going to be consistency? You try to build, at least, a foundation that you can look back on and say, okay, these things have stayed consistent over time. It's not just new opponents, there will be some divisional work." (On if he starts looking at the first opponent almost immediately)- "Yes, and you spend some more time on the earlier opponents, because you know that you're not going to have as much game tape leading into those games. Sometimes it's really valuable and other times you think, well it was a good exercise, but it didn't quite work." (On if the injury report is his responsibility)- "I work with the trainers and the doctors and get all of the information that we can on that." (On if he consults with George Kokinis on the injury report)- "George and I both go through it. We get updates daily and try to get all the information that we possibly can." (On if it worked the same way in New York)- "As I said, with New York, I really answered all those questions." (On how capable the Browns are of being a passing team when needed)- "That's always the driving force, is to be whichever you need to be that week, against that opponent. The goal is flexibility. Every single time you play a game, the problems that you face, the challenges that you face, they're dramatically different, team to team. Sometimes it's all man-to-man, sometimes it's heavy blitz, sometimes it's more zone, sometimes it's dropping eight. You have to fight the battle based on the terrain, based on the opponent." (On if the Browns can be a good passing team against good run defenses)- "When we played Minnesota in '06, they were pretty good against the run, and we ran it 29 times. I think there also has to be balance." (On if he sees the wisdom in picking Joe Thomas a head of Adrian Peterson in the 2007 draft)- "I'm really happy Joe Thomas is here. You go into the draft and you look at the needs and you make the decision based on where you think you need to go organizationally. Not knowing what all those conversations were, I think they've both become really outstanding players. That's what you're always looking for, too, is to get those draft picks to really play well."Mike Wallace Jersey
About the Cavs 1. ESPN had 53 "experts" vote for the team they thought would win the 2010 NBA title. The top three were the Lakers (19), Cavs (18) and Spurs (eight). ESPN's John Hollinger on the Cavs: "Scary thought -- the Cavs won 66 games and got better in the off-season. Whatever they get from Shaquille O'Neal will dwarf the contributions of Ben Wallace and Sasha Pavlovic a year ago, so that trade is a home run for Cleveland. Beyond that, they addressed the greatest area of concern by adding size and depth on the wings in the form of Anthony Parker and Jamario Moon. Cleveland also kept Anderson Varejao, and while their payroll is on pace to outstrip the national debt, that's Dan Gilbert's problem. On the court, they've strengthened three key rotation spots without losing a single important player." 2. It's nice that Gloria James told the New York Post that her son LeBron "is a hometown boy" and not likely to leave the Cavs, but there will be a lot of reports like that next season. This much is certain: The James Gang (family and most friends) certainly prefer he stays here. 3. After his world tour (James did go to Asia) to promote the film "More Than a Game" and book "Shooting Stars," James is back and is working out with about a dozen players at the Cavs' practice facility. One is free agent center Jarron Collins, whom the Cavs may sign. While traveling, James was accompanied by assistant Chris Jent, and they worked out often. 4. ESPN's Hollinger has a rating system that shows what players have the ball in their hands the most. Here were the top five in order from last season: Dwyane Wade, James, Kobe Bryant, Tony Parker and Carmelo Anthony.James Harrison Jersey
he hooked up on a 34-yarder to him later in the first quarter with the ball on target, on time, and on the kind of hissing line that connected the quarterback and the receiver in 2007, when things looked so promising. The first quarter meant that Anderson, after a brief, brutal turn last week in the exhibition opener at Green Bay, was back in the discussion for the starting quarterback job, particularly when Brady Quinn did little in the second quarter because of penalties, dropped balls and an increased pass rush by the Lions. Meanwhile, Joshua Cribbs had a career in the first quarter as a kick returner. After his 95-yard touchdown kickoff return to start the game was called back, he sailed 84 yards to score on a punt return, weaving through the Lions' coverage unit. Frankly, many appeared to have come to the stadium in a clown car. The Lions' quarterback of the future, rookie Matthew Stafford, threw his first pass, from his own 9, straight to Browns defender Eric Wright. After scrambling 15 yards with the pick to the Lions' 5, Wright rose, waved his arms to the Dawg Pound, like the conductor of a silly symphony, bowed theatrically, then ran across the field and tried to leap into the stands. Referees blew the whistle, penalizing the Browns for inane behavior. The Browns shuffled backward and eventually settled for a field goal. There is a long history of Browns players acting like it's Mardi Gras after big plays. Brandon McDonald somersaulted into the end zone with an interception for the only TD in the team's long scoring famine. "Act like you've been there before," is the old saying, although, until the Lions came to town, the Browns mostly had not. The half ended with Anderson attempting to run the two-minute drill. A sore point at least since the days of Tim Couch, it got sorer, as the "drive" devolved into three time-wasting dump-offs and then a tipped-ball interception. It gave the Lions a field goal on the last play of the half. Hey, look on the bright side: They got points out of the two-minute drill! By the way, the rematch is Nov. 22 in Detroit. The game will count. Trust me, there will be tickets available.
