NFL Draft Zone:
This has to be the story of the year folks, I mean L.J. Fort had to wait for his chance to shine at the big stage, but it has finally arrived. L.J. Fort will start at linebacker for the injured James Michael Johnson in the NFL season opener for the Browns. Fort and the Browns will take on the Eagles of Philadelphia and the injury prone Michael Vick. If L.J. Fort can impress the coaching staff this week, it might be very hard for rookie James Michael Johnson or newly acquired rookie Tank Carder to come in and bump Fort from his spot.
Remember, Fort was the NCAA leading tackler last season with 180 plus tackles, and this kid is a physical freak. He is great in coverage and is not afraid to lay the wood on people. If Fort can prove this week he deserves to stay; be prepared to see this kid for a while. Dick Jauron loves his little linebackers, from London Fletcher to Keith Ellison, Jauron always finds a way to find his Diamond in the Rough on the defense. This year it will be L...

1. Stop the Eagles pass rush
The Eagles have one of the quickest and best pass rushing defensive lines in all of football. The Browns must find a way to contain the Eagles rush that roughed up the Browns in Cleveland a couple weeks ago. Brandon Weeden must protect the ball better when pressure finds him and get rid of the ball quickly...

Heading into their Opening Week contest against the Philadelphia Eagles, the Cleveland Browns will prepare as if star cornerback Joe Haden will be in uniform.
Haden, one of the team’s most talented players, has been the subject of a report stating that the player could fall victim to a four-game suspension following a failed drug test earlier this summer. Allegedly using Adderall...
Head coach Pat Shurmur was asked about the challenge of coaching so many rookies and young players on gameday-
“Yeah, I think it’s important that we keep in mind. It’s a matter of record right? What, 15 rookies, 26 guys either rookies, first- or second-year guys. That’s a fun stat to throw around. We’ve got to keep that in mind as coaches. We’ve got to try to put them...

Browns Trent Richardson (knee) is back at practice on Monday, according to Tony Grossi.Fantasy Spin:This would be his first action since having his knee scoped. The true test of the knee is whether he can come back at the Browns' next practice. He's still questionable for the season opener with Philadelphia, but he's certainly headed in the right direction. Expect a limited...

"But there is no specific timetable requirement,'' he wrote. "Each case...
This week was again Rick and Craig mostly talking about the Browns. Again, despite my monitoring, Rick seemed a bit low in the mix. It is totally listenable, but we’ll keep working on making it better.
