Live from Berea

BEREA, Ohio -- The AFC North blog will continue its training camp tour this week with the Cleveland Browns.
New coach Eric Mangini has done a lot of things to change the culture in Cleveland, and it will be interesting to see how the Browns are shaping up leading into their first preseason game Saturday against the Green Bay Packers.
Here are some of the things I will be monitoring this week:
- Obviously, the major question involves quarterbacks Brady Quinn and Derek Anderson. At some point one player has to emerge, and there's no time better than the present.
- How much different will Cleveland's 3-4 defense look under Mangini and assistant Rob Ryan as opposed to previous years with former head coach Romeo Crennel? Also, can the defense generate a pass rush this season?
- Can former Pro Bowl receiver Braylon Edwards return to the form of 2007 after struggling one year ago?
- In a crowded field, who will emerge as Cleveland's No. 2 receiver?
- How are the new "Cleveland Jets" fitting in with the team and what exactly are their roles?
Stay tuned to the AFC North for constant updates from Browns training camp.
