Some positive news from today’s Browns practice: cornerback Buster Skrine and wide receiver Josh Cooper each saw increased reps as they battle their respective injuries. Skrine (concussion) was a limited participant Thursday after not practicing on Wednesday. Cooper (knee) was a full participant after being limited the day before. In other notable injury news, Joe Haden (olbique) and Ahytba Rubin (calf/back) both remained limited participants in Thursday’s agenda. Defensive backs and special team guys Dmitri Patterson (ankle) and Ray Ventrone (calf) both did not practice again. I’m certain we’ll hear more as the week continues, as Haden and Rubin will likely be the focus of more questions as Sunday’s Steelers game approaches.

  • Letter to Jimmy Haslam, I have been a lifelong Browns fan and with that have seen many changes, some for the good, some, well let's just say, not so good. The one thing I do know as a fan from this Ohio area is that when you keep hiring the wrong head coaches, things go wrong real quick around here, and what I telling you is since '99 this franchise has consistently chosen the wrong coach each and every time. What's more is that fans like myself knew they were wrong the moment they were hired. Please end this drought of inexpierenced "learn on the job" coaches, and bring in a veteran who will add some stability to an already dwindling fan base, and at the same time will have the attention of the team for his performance at this NFL level. If it were my investment, there is no coach I would even consider besides Bill Cowher. Starting with the fact he was a former Browns player and assistant coach, plus his (11) playoff game victories, as well as a Super Bowl win. His style of coaching is exactly what has been missing with each of the past and present head coaches that have been hired here, these guys have no clue as to what it takes to add attitude and controled aggression to a football team, you look at each of the Steeler teams under Cowher and you will see the confidence level his teams had were head and shoulders above anything seen from our teams. Coach Cowher was given next to nothing in free agent players, plus he was normally drafting late ,yet he was always able to find players at any round to add to his team with the ability to fill in for any injured starters, he also had his share of undrafted free agents, like James Harrison, that has been a force for many years. Jimmy, don't let this opportunity get past you, I'm sure being part of that winning franchise you know better than most how much he would add to our team immediatley. I will be the first to purchase season tickets the day you hire him. That's a promise!!!
