Sunday Wire: Pile on the Offense

A hamster emergency (no comments, please) took priority at the Bietz household this morning, creating a late <A HREF="http://www.brownstng.com/browns/news/btng_newswire.asp">Newswire</A>.

Beat writers piled on the Browns offense today, a day after a weak showing by the team's first-team offense in Rochester.

Different writers focus on different causes for the offenses's weakness: Steve Doerschuck's pins the blame on the missing William Green, and others look at the inability of the team to field fullback JJ Johnson as the root cause. Jeff Schudel talks about the offense's "confusion", and Tony Grossi offers that Couch pats the ball too much. Whatever the root cause, the headlines on today's Newswire seem repetitious as one glances down the page.

A couple of different takes for your consideration: Mike McLain talks about Dennis Northcutt's rebirth in this year's training camp and Sean McClelland of the Dayton Daily-News provides some great analysis on why Shaun O'Hara has been annointed the starting left guard. Tony Grossi talks about the Browns overpaying their players and Bill Rabinowitz in the registration-required Columbus Dispatch provides some background on Pete Garcia for those people who didn't get enough with our coverage of Garcia.

It's all there waiting for you on the Newswire. Happy surfing!
