This is the way I see a certain wide receiver that plays for the Browns. He can be the monkeywrench to ruin my plans for celebration tomorrow. Braylon Edwards is one of the best young playmakers of this league. He's big, he's fast and he's got great hands. He'll be a handful for any of our defensive backs.
Anderson and Edwards made a terrific duo last season. Edwards, a former Michigan standout, had a career year, catching 80 passes for 1,289 yards and 16 touchdowns. After working with Anderson this off-season, Edwards hopes he can improve even more.
I've got Braylon in a couple of my leagues. I hope he has a great season. After tomorrow.
Running back Jamal Lewis (hamstring) was limited in practice Friday and is listed as questionable for Sunday's opener against the Dallas Cowboys.
Lewis will be a game-time decision, coach Romeo Crennel said.
Lewis participated in the open first half-hour Friday, but may have sat out team drills. If he can't go, Jerome Harrison and Jason Wright will carry the load at Cleveland Browns Stadium.
"That's what they've been preparing to do," Crennel said. "We've said all along that Jamal is a different kind of player that we're dealing with, and those guys, they're not to Jamal's level. We understand that, but they do bring something to the table and they'll help this team.
Stroll down memory lane with my man Billy Bob Bates. I miss that dude.
For years and years it seemed like the Cowboys brought bums off the street to kick for us. And most of the time it worked. Then a few years back we came this close from going 12-4 because of a few missed field goals. So we brought in Vanderchump and I was genuinely excited about our prospects. What a fool I was.
Well I thank my lucky stars for Nick Folk. He doesn't talk much. He's not a whiner. He's not a prima donna. He knows kickers get dissed like lame dudes in a Rihanna song (which Ne-Yo wrote by the way and did I mention how SEXY she is? Anyways back to my original point). Folk doesn't care. He just goes out and does his job.
One of the best players in training camp has pretty much gone unnoticed outside the locker room.
You might take Nick Folk for granted, but don't think for a moment the Cowboys do.
Folk has been impressive in training camp and the preseason, removing any thoughts that he might be in line for a sophomore slump.
He's good. Real good.
