The Browns' first preseason game of the year will be a little overshadowed by the Jets' sudden addition of future Hall of Fame quarterback Brett Favre, who made the trip to Cleveland for a 6:00 PM press conference.
Nonetheless, our minds won't be focused on Favre, no matter how much it's talked about: we want to see what the 2008-2009 Cleveland Browns will bring to the table. We're not getting a full plate with players like Kellen Winslow and Lawrence Vickers scheduled to sit out, but the plate will still be more than satisfying.
- If you overlooked my training camp battles article posted late last night (or early this morning, in reality), then check it out.
- A user over at the OBR posted a possible way to view the Browns / Jets game online if you are not a Cleveland resident. If you're going to try this, I suggest you try to install the software prior to the game starting.
- If you missed it, LB Beau Bell had his knee scraped and will miss at least two weeks. With that, David McMillan will probably get more of a shot at outside linebacker since Shantee Orr will be needed at both inside and outside linebacker after D'Qwell Jackson and Andra Davis leave the game.
- Remember, it'll shake out this way, roughly:
- 1st Quarter: Derek Anderson & First String
- 2nd Quarter: Brady Quinn & Second String
- 3rd Quarter: Brady Quinn & Second/Third String
- 4th Quarter: Ken Dorsey & Third String
- Last, but not least, let's hope for an injury-free game.
