    Interesting note from Ulrich about Ogbonnaya lining up at the fullback spot… that makes a lot of sense. He’s bigger than I thought as a running back… listed at 225 lbs. It wouldn’t be crazy if the Browns ask him to bulk up a bit and play FB, which would explain signing Brandon Jackson as the third running back.

    I’m so sick of the media’s obsession with Tebow. Like the Kardashian of your choice and their ilk, Tebow’s famous for being famous. The media cover him so much because he gets so much coverage. The media is just embarrassing. Grow up already.
