Cleveland Browns Notes, Quotes 2008-08-28
--Few if any NFL receiver has worked with more quarterbacks than Donte Stallworth has over the past four years. He was with the Saints in 2005, the Eagles in 2006, the Patriots in 2007 and now the Browns. He says the burden to adjust to a new receiver is on the quarterback, because the receiver runs the same route regardless who throws the ball. Until Derek Anderson suffered a concussion, the vast majority of passes Stallworth caught this summer were thrown by Anderson. When Anderson got knocked out, Stallworth started catching more passes from Brady Quinn.


"They have to gauge every receiver differently," Stallworth said. "They have to know receivers' speeds and how quickly guys get in and out of routes. That's why we're out here doing extra stuff. It's coming along, as long as we stay after practice and stay in each other's ears."

--The last time the Browns opened the season against the Cowboys was in 1991 when they lost 26-14 in Dallas. It was Bill Belichick's first game as a head coach in the NFL.

--This will be the second consecutive year the Browns will have completed half their AFC North schedule by the end of September, which is one reason there is emphasis on a quick start. Last year they were 2-1 in the division after the first four games. This year they play host to the Steelers on Sept. 14 and then play in Baltimore and Cincinnati on consecutive Sundays.

--The Browns have been in conversation with unemployed cornerback Ty Law,=

but they are not interested in signing him at this point. Romeo Crennel coached Law from 2001-2004 in New England.

BY THE NUMBERS: 1 -- Number of teams with a winning record the Browns beat last season.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "My role has to be the guy who can jump right in and make the adjustments and be quick on his feet. It's tough to do and that's something I'm really working toward." -- Brady Quinn on taking over from Derek Anderson on an unscheduled occasion.
