The Grass isn't Always Greener

I knew William Green and Lee Suggs were in trouble in Cleveland when new head coach Romeo Crennel described his running backs last month in less than glowing terms. It sounded a lot like Donald Rumsfeld's infamous statement about going to war with the army you have, not the army you might want.

Well, now Crennel has another arm in the pen, so to speak (couldn't resist a baseball metaphor the day before Opening "Day"). Reuben Droughns is not the second coming of Terrell Davis, and was expendable once Tatum Bell moved past him on the Denver depth chart. But since Bell, Droughns, and Quentin Griffin all had 100-yd games last season, and Denver seems to be able to run the ball every year, you have to wonder if Cleveland is over-evaluating Droughns a bit.

Plus, since Denver then turned around and signed Ron Dayne, that is a pretty strong indication of their confidence in their system.
