A couple more Joe Thomas pics and my vote is cast. Fellows like this, make actions speak louder than words.

Well, for the first time in a while, I'm optimistic about the Browns before the season starts. I guess that's a good thing. :)

This is for old man clueless: you will only post because you read this article, more proof that you are a closet Browns fan. Here is your chance to come out of the closet and plan for the Browns to kick the squeelers a$$es TWICE this season. That will bring on the goosebumps!

What a shame it will be if a talent rich team like fans have not seen in over 20 years is ruined by negligent management that refuses to address the inherent staph infection problem at their facility. Not moving the team for camp is totally irresponsible on their part.

The Browns made some noise last year and the media plan to let every one know if it was an aboration or if the Browns' are the real deal. If in fact they are for real all Browns' fan world wide will have the best season ever. It is kind of like---All I want for Christmas tale that comes true.

We now have a target on us. There is no creeping up on teams. We, especially in the AFCN, are probably the most hated team in our division.

Isn't that great. I just love it.

Hope the Browns live "up" to expectations unlike the well managed and talentedn tribe. Really though....the tribe does have some quality palyers and will bounce back.

Believe me Bill. the Browns are defintely the most LIKED team in the division. In no way does anything about the Browns (at this time), make any Steelers, Ravens or Bengal fans HATE them.
The Steelers are hated because of their success.
Th Ravens are hated either because of how they came to being or by the type of persona and players they employ.
The Bengals aren't hated but are considered whiners at times.
The Browns prior to last year, were the loveable losers. They now are a team a lot of people want to see do well, and within the division, still kinda of considered a question mark by most other North fans.

Hard to stay grounded with the media blowing trumpets in their direction every chance they get. I'm optimistic, but certainly not ready to step into the limelight and puff my chest. Last year only proved that the roster has talent. Every roster in the NFL has that to a degree. This season is the REAL test. We shall see...

As usual, it will come down to injuries, limiting mistakes, and the yearly lottery of whether the team has good fortune or not. I just wish the media had left them alone and kept the secret under wraps. Being the sexy pick isnt always a good thing...

If I wanted to go and watch the Browns practice, in Berea, where would I go? Do they just let anyone who wants to watch in? Thanks, any info would be appreciated.

You'll have to go to the Browns website ( www.clevelandbrowns.com ) to get directions to the practice facility. It's free to get in, but if you're some Steelers fan just trying to be a smart a$$ then i suggest not going, hospital bills can be expensive anymore.

See you there.

And if you go to a Cleveland hospital it's likely that you'll get a staph infection.

Well, my goodness, aren't we a bit testy? At any rate, I wouldn't be going there as anything but someone who wants to watch the Browns work out. I have been to an area of Berea where you cross the bridge from the MetroParks area. Is the practice field close to that? Thanks..

STILL talking about the staph thing? Really? And how do you know it's Berea's fault? Staph infections are a major health issue all over the country, last I checked.

Hey Ramon, either shut the trap or take your clown act to Detroit or Pittsburgh. I think they could use a little of your karma.

Only in Cleveland can such negativity exist. Only in Cleveland...

If what many believe does happen this year, it won't take long for the Browns to have an audience that cheers against them. Win, and your Loved and Hated. Lose, well, your just loved.
