Browns analyst for and ESPN 850 WKNR and 1540 KNR2. Analyst on SportsTimeOhio. Author, husband and father of two. — By Tony Grossi The Morning Kickoff ... Stars and planets aligning: I have this theory about Brian Hoyer's storybook season - and yes, when you're the quarterback of a Browns team that is 7-4 and in the thick of the AFC North division race, then that qualifies as a storybook season. — Extra Points ... Next men up (cont.): Free safety Tashaun Gipson has a torn medial collateral ligament and potentially damage to the posterior collateral ligament. The possible multiple injuries to the knee means Gipson probably will be lost for the rest of the season. — "We have addressed this appropriately with the player and will have no further comment at this time." — Rex Ryan did his coaching protégé, Mike Pettine, a huge favor in inspiring his New York Jets to a 20-13 upset victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday. The Pittsburgh loss dropped the Steelers to 6-4 and left the Browns, for whom Pettine is in his first season as a head coach, all alone in first place in the AFC North with a 6-3 record. — Four Downs on Browns v. Cincinnati Bengals First down: Mohamed Sanu v. Buster Skrine Since when is A.J. Green not the Bengals receiver to worry about? Since now. While Green sat out three games with a "turf toe" injury, Sanu emerged as a breakout star in his third season. — The Morning Kickoff ... Haden on the spot: Through three games, Joe Haden has had the toughest job on the Browns. Playing Mike Pettine's demanding "press corner" technique every defensive snap -- with the ticky-tacky rules the way they are for cornerbacks -- and doing it against Ben Roethlisberger and Antonio Brown, Drew Brees and Jimmy Graham and Joe Flacco and Steve Smith, well, it doesn't get any tougher than that. — The Morning Kickoff ... The lowdown: The Browns will enter the NFL draft with 10 selections over the seven rounds - their own in every round plus the Colts' selections in the first and fourth rounds, and the Steelers' pick in the third round. — The Morning Kickoff ... Back to the future: Ray Farmer is about to embark on his first NFL draft as a general manager. He has no past performance chart. The immediate future of the Browns is in his hands. His boss, Jimmy Haslam, has called this "THE crucial offseason for the Cleveland Browns."

Wayward field goal dooms Baltimore in 23-20 loss to New England in AFC Championship — FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- The New England Patriots usually storm into the Super Bowl in convincing, decisive fashion. This time they backed in, and were lucky to move on. The Patriots reached the Super Bowl for the fifth time in 11 years when the Baltimore Ravens had a game-winning touchdown taken away and a game-tying field goal miss wide left.

Tony Grossi's post on Cleveland Browns — Chudzinski opened his daily press briefing by stating that the starters for Saturday's 3rd preseason game in Indianapolis will be the starters for the regular season -- with the except of right ...
