The Cleveland Browns need to mosey on down to Home Depot and
purchase one of those bright blue bug zapper lights the ones that so many of us see and
hear sizzling bugs like steaks during a summer barbecue. Cleveland Browns rookie kicker, Brandon
Bogotay, was making the most out of his start last night against the Lions with
a 43-yard field goal and two extra points when the NFL Injury Bug, fat from

Replaced by veteran K Shayne Graham, Bogotay and Graham are
in an open competition to win the starting kicking job. Phil Dawson created the vacancy when he left C-Town and heeded west to San Francisco.

are that he was giving Graham tough competition. Bogotay has been working with legendary
kicking guru Gary Zauner and knows that he has no room for mistakes. That is why Bogotay declared himself ready to
play next game. Do the Browns take an
unproven rookie or an aging 13-year veteran in Graham? Unfortunately, for Bogotay, if his injury
turns out to be any more serious, the Browns' decision will be made for them.
