Well, it looks like the 2007 Browns season is off and running...

I think Ryan Tucker is a stand up guy for acknowledging what he did and accepting his punishment. Was it stupid ... definitely but we all do stupid things. Granted I don't inject myself with steroids but I am not under the pressure to perform at his level either. This guy has been our best lineman over the last 4 + years so lets give him a break! He will be back for 75% of the season and hopefully he will be as dominant as he always was. I still see us having a good season ... it could happen ... GO BROWNS!!

An elaboration I'd have liked asked for, though I can appreciate the reporters being respectful and deferential, is what exactly does Ryan have in mind when he says people will "make their own assumptions." Because, among the things he did not say, is whether this was/is his first experience with banned substances of this nature. Not that he had to or would've been smart to volunteer. But it is real that he did a lot of wrong bringing this upon himself, his organization, his teammates, his peers in the sport, not to mention the season's prospects. On many levels. Regardless of what might have been Ryan's apprehensions about fan assumptions, they'd have been interesting to have identified by Ryan.

Just another reason to expect the Browns to be
0-16 this season.

When will they ever get control of their team for a run at the playoffs? No Brady Quinn signed, Ryan Tucker suspended for steroids. At this rate, never.

Browns fans would be better to root for the Steelers in 2007 !!!!

I want traded to another team. Grandmammy Johnson and I should go to the same team and we would be awesome.

Why the heck are the Browns EVEN hinting at releasing Ryan Tucker. For God Sake!!! He has been a mainstay there. What a stupid, stupid, stupid decision it would be to let him go. OMG!

I don't think this is that bad. Tucker has been solid, but nothing great over at right tackle. This assures Joe Thomas of 100% of the reps at left tackle, which he should have been getting all along anyway. And we'll move Shaffer over to right tackle. Problem solved.

Plus, Bentley could be back at some point this year as well.

If he was REALLY a stand up guy he would tell us why he was in the loony bin to begin with. Just what the Browns need. Certified mental cases on the team. Don't we have enough head cases with Edwards and Winslow?

Since the Cavs broke the barrier, the Browns will too. 11-5, home game in the playoffs.(Boy, that Koolaid tasted good!!)

Not in your wildest dreams. They will bring up the rear as usual in 2007.

While I'm not panicking about the offensive line, at the same time I'm expecting something like 5 - 11 for this year.

This is why I play fantasy football....

Picking on the Browns again. The other teams and media that is. I think for a long time, it is quite obvious that the Brwons reputation has encouraged bad calls during games, and even a play book or two has be compromised.

Over the last 20 years it seems like the Brwons never run an offensive play that the opponents defense is not ready for..
