Getting away from it all

Browns' offices have been quiet this weekend as the National Football League pays respect to families of the victims of last Tuesday's senseless tragedies in New York City and Washington, D.C.

The players didn't have much to try to get away, if they so desired. They were off on Friday but were required to attend film sessions today and Sunday. They will return to the practice field Monday at 2 p.m. for a two-hour workout.

Not having a game to play today will undoubtedly seem strange to athletes who gear their lives for Sunday afternoons. None, however, are complaining about the NFL's decision to postpone play.

"I think it was ultimately the right decision," quarterback Tim Couch said. "I can't imagine 80,000 people going to a stadium and cheering and being happy about a game when all this stuff is going on in the country right now."

Butch Davis said it best when asked how he planned to spend time this weekend.

"I going to spend time with my wife and son and be glad that I have them," he said.
