The OBR will be large* and in charge all afternoon and evening from Cleveland Browns Stadium, as Fred Greetham and I will be in the Browns press box reporting on the game throughout the day.

Here are some of the LIVE in-game options for Browns fans tracking the game.

The Live Feed: Constant updates (one a minute, on average) during the game. We'll have the inactives and an injury update around noon.

OBR Chat Room: Watch the game along insane people (in a good way) in the OBR's free chat room.

Cooler Official Game Thread: It started rolling last night and won't stop until after the game. Join in with the Browns fans in the most popular Browns forum on the 'net.

* Time to go back on a diet


Scout.com is running their annual all-you-can-eat freebie buffet through Sunday night. All articles across the Scout network are FREE FREE FREE. We posted a bunch of stuff yesterday so that folks can get a sense of the good life that subscribers live.

If you have a few extra bucks burning a hole in your pocket and are a hard-core Browns fan, consider an online or magazine subscription for yourself, or maybe even a Christmas gift. Webdorks gotta eat.

Here's some of the articles we posted on Saturday and this morning, with a heavy mix of subscriber stories so folks can live the good life today.

Browns-Texans: Greg's Game Preview


Frankly, there's not a lot of new information on the newswire (rss) again this morning. The team is in pre-game lockdown mode, there was no practice or any sort of roster moves on Saturday, and no media availability. Which means, no real news in this morning's fish-wraps.

There are a lot of the usual game previews (here's ours), some player profile pieces, and a few status resets. Plus, a little open-mouthed and somewhat stunned pieces from out of town noting that the Browns don't suck this year. Those are always a kick.

Anyhow, here's some of what's out there. We've got it all listed on the newswire.

Game Previews
OBR  Elyria C-T  Canton Rep  C-Bus Dispatch  Fox Sports

Stunned Out-of-Towners
Buffalo News  Cincy Enquirer  Florida T-U 

After that, it's sort of a grab bag. Get surfin'.



WTF. Somehow, the News-o-Rama has jumped from completely off radar to one of the top sports blogs on Myspace. Browns fans on Myspace have really been spreading the word... thanks, Dawgs!

Here's some more of the relatively light activity on the blogosphere this morning. Apparently Browns bloggers are all getting a start in the real world version of the Muni Lot. Things have been pretty nuts on the virtual Muni this week, catch up if you've got some spare time this morning.

More from last night...



We generally post transcripts in our Ask the Insiders forum from the Browns and our upcoming opponents. Here are some recent ones:

Gary Kubiak (11/19, 11/21, 11/23); RAC (11/19, 11/21, 11/23); Texans Players, Andre Johnson, Browns Players

Speaking of transcripts, the most recent chat session with Scout.com NFL analyst Adam Caplan somehow fell off my radar before the Ravens game. I cranked it out tonight and posted it in Ask the Insiders. Click here if you're interested.

Have to get the laptop packed up and head down to the Stadium, so we'll save "ELSEWHERE ON THE WEB" and off-topic ranting for another day. See you from CBS and.... GOOOO BROWNS!!!
