What We've Been Told: Tidbit Edition

So, if the Browns head into Baltimore and lay an egg, could next week be an interesting one? Lane Adkins has been talking to his sources in Berea and has an answer....

- Following the Browns loss Sunday night to the Pittsburgh Steelers, team owner Randy Lerner was quite unhappy and not satisfied with the effort on the field. All indications are Lerner is patient, but the expectation level is high and the team is under-achieving.

- Despite the offense not playing well, QB Derek Anderson is not in jeopardy of being benched - yet. The offensive staff, we hear, wants to add another WR to the mix as well as for the existing talent on the offensive side of the ball to gain consistency and minimize mistakes, which have been plentiful.

- The injury issues are piling up, but the organization is not going to let it be an excuse to fail. The front office has been busy evaluating potential targets to add depth to the roster.

- Head coach Romeo Crennel is not on the verge of being fired, but facing the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday is a critical game. If the Browns go into Baltimore and play as play poorly as they have the first two weeks of the season, Monday in Cleveland could be an eventful day within the organization.

- Injured WR Donte Stallworth (quad strain) is expected to be ready to play Sunday, unless something else regarding the mild strain sets him back.

- The play-calling of offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski has not changed as far as the scheme is concerned. The execution of the offense has been average at best, which limits the explosive qualities of the players within the roster and scheme.
