Morning take: Polamalu praises LeBeau

7/11/2010

Here are the most interesting stories Sunday in the AFC North:

  • Safety Troy Polamalu has high praise for Pittsburgh Steelers defensive coordinator and 2010 Hall of Famer Dick LeBeau. Polamalu calls LeBeau the "greatest coach of all time."

Morning take: Although it's unspoken, LeBeau's coaching and overall contributions to football helped get him into Canton. We will have more on LeBeau in the coming weeks leading up to his Hall of Fame induction.

  • Which Baltimore Ravens linebacker will play next to Ray Lewis this season?

Morning take: Someone will have to step up between Dannell Ellerbe, Tavares Gooden and Brendon Ayanbadejo. All three have a shot.

Morning take: The Browns proved late last season that they can run the football. My question is do they have enough talent to pass the ball effectively?

  • The Browns, Steelers and Cincinnati Bengals were among 20 confirmed teams attending the recent workout of BYU running back Harvey Unga, who is eligible for the supplemental draft.

Morning take: With Cedric Benson possibly facing a suspension, Cincinnati is wise to see what Unga has to offer. For the Browns and Steelers, an educated guess is it was just due diligence.
