OBR News-o-Rama: 11/14 AM

The latest Browns news from around the web, leavened with opinionated yammering...

Yes, to quote a now-routed Ratbird Ranter, it's Bollertime Mu*******az!

The Ravens look like they're pushing out no-longer-useful QB Steve McNair and bringing in Brian Billick's latest quarterback washout, Kyle Boller. Of course, now that I'm mocking him and posting photos of Boller taken while he was drunk off his butt, this means that Boller will have the game of his career.

Someone whisper "Party!" into Boller's ear on Saturday night. The rest will take care of itself.



Since yesterday was a day off with no player or coach availability, the pickings are pretty slim on this morning's newswire. RAC will meet with the media and there will be some locker room availability with the players this afternoon. Fred Greetham will be there and we'll have the first report from Berea early this afternoon.

Here's some of the latest from this morning's newswire (rss), categorized as always for easy consumption:

Folks in the Watercooler think it was Leon Williams who called the first timeout from the field on Sunday.

And, of course, Red Sox fans are whining about C.C. Sabathia getting the Cy Young award. Just STFU already.
