Cleveland Browns Notes, Quotes 2008-08-21
--After practice one day, Derek Anderson noticed a young fan standing alongside the rope separating spectators from the practice field. Anderson saw the boy was holding a marking pen and a pad of paper.


"What's up, buddy?" Anderson asked.

"Nothing," the boy said. "I'm just waiting for Brady Quinn."

--Pro golfer Ben Curtis, fresh off a second-place finish in the PGA, was a guest of the Browns at practice two days later.

Curtis was wearing an orange Browns polo shirt. While playing at Oakland Hills, a golf course near Detroit, he was wearing the blue and silver of the Detroit Lions. His contract with Reebok calls for him to wear the shirt of whatever pro football team is in the area of the course he is playing.

"This is my true feelings here," said Curtis, a native of Stow, Ohio, as he tugged on the sleeve of his shirt. "I have to wear a Steelers shirt when I'm in Pittsburgh. The hard part is dealing with the fans and hearing them say 'Go Steelers!' I always put on a Browns shirt or hat somewhere along the line to rub it in."

--Practice one day ended with a field-goal attempt by Phil Dawson. The field-goal team traditionally ends a session, but this kick was special. Romeo Crennel told the team the afternoon meeting the next day would be canceled if Dawson made the kick from 54 yards. If he missed, the entire team would have to run a lap.

Dawson's kick actually fell about a yard short, but Crennel called the kick good because the goal post was facing the opposite way. The players raised their arms in celebration.

--Injured guard Ryan Tucker has started working outside with trainer Marty Lauzon. Tucker had been out since May 14 with a fractured hip. Tucker is targeting the season opener for his return.

--The most violent collision of training camp occurred Aug. 13 when Kellen Winslow caught a pass, took one step, and met 5-10 safety Travis Key. Key fell as though struck by lightning. Winslow was unaffected.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "I look at a lot of film. I watch those guys -- (Shawne) Merriman, (DeMarcus) Ware and (James) Harrison with the Steelers last year -- to see how they're doing. I try to do some of the things they do. They're all great linebackers in the NFL." -- Browns OLB Kamerion Wimbley.
