Cleveland Browns Notes, Quotes 2009-04-21
--The Browns enter the draft with a pick in the top seven for the seventh time in 11 years, and all they have to show for their futility is one playoff appearance and two winning seasons. None of the first-round picks selected from 1999-2004 are still on the team.


--For the 11th straight year -- every season since their rebirth -- the Browns will open the season at home. This year their opponent is the Vikings. Some teams might prefer opening at home, but not the Browns. They are 1-9 in season openers.

--Despite falling from 10-6 in 2007 to 4-12 last year, the Browns were rewarded with two primetime games, both at home and both against division rivals. They will play the Ravens in a Monday night game on Nov. 16 and the Steelers in a Thursday night NFL Network telecast on Dec. 10.

The Browns played five games in prime time last year and won twice. The only time they were blown out was in a 30-10 loss to the Eagles in Philadelphia.

--Game 15 for the Browns will have some intrigue, even if a playoff berth is not at stake. It is against Kansas City, and that means Chiefs general manager Scott Pioli vs. Browns head coach Eric Mangini in a clash of personalities.

Pioli was the first candidate Browns owner Randy Lerner interviewed for the general manager's job that eventually went to George Kokinis. Pioli was the vice president of player personnel while Mangini was on Bill Belichick's staff in New England from 2000-2006.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "You're always looking to be able to stop the run. I think that's where defense starts. And then you're looking to not give up big plays, make a team go the long, hard way, work down the field. Those are two key things that come into play." -- Coach Eric Mangini on the 3-4 defense.
