Browns Offensive Line Using Smarts, Scheme To Pave Way To Solid Start
BEREA, Ohio – The Brown's offensive linemen don't wear dorky glasses taped in the middle or pocket protectors. They do protect the pocket, though.
Cleveland's line, a collection of five book-smart, weight-trained athletes anchored by a Pro Bowl center who graduated from California-Berkeley and keeps "The Thinker's Thesaurus" handy for reference in his locker, has paved the way to the Browns' solid start.
They're the brains and brawn of the Browns.
"Just stand near them and listen to them to talk," said first-year coach Mike Pettine. "They're football nerds. That's all they talk about is football. They get into some real in-depth conversations about it, and it shows on the field. They work very well together. It's a very intelligent group, and I think they're very well suited for the scheme."
