Morning take: Blame Bengals coaches?

Here are the most interesting stories Wednesday in the AFC North: Morning take: No question the Bengals are sloppy and to some degree everything falls on the coaches' desk. But players also need to be accountable for not knowing the snap count, missing tackles, dropping passes and running the wrong routes.
Morning take: Starter Todd Heap has taken a pounding this year, so one of these rookies needs to step up to keep him fresh. Dickson has made a few big plays this year.
Morning take: It's time for the Browns to move on. They're coming off a huge win over the Super Bowl champs, yet Cleveland is still talking about Harrison.
Morning take: Pittsburgh could add a defensive lineman, likely Steve McClendon from the practice squad. But someone has to go, and candidates include defensive backs Keenan Lewis or Crezdon Butler, or rookies Thaddeus Gibson and Jonathan Dwyer.
