Morning take: Colt McCoy and Brett Favre?

By James Walker

Here are the most interesting stories Tuesday in the AFC North: Morning take: This was a wise move by McCoy. He couldn't learn the offense from coaches during the lockout, so McCoy sought help from someone who played under Browns president Mike Holmgren.
Morning take: Usually, a coach doesn't need to stand up for their group in the preseason. But there's so much early concern in Cincinnati that Zimmer felt it was necessary.
Morning take: Pitta's playing style looks fairly similar to a young Heap. Tight end is important in Baltimore's offense. Therefore, Pitta and Ed Dickson will get opportunities to make plays.
Morning take: This should be the focus. The Steelers do not have many position battles or much to prove in the preseason. These next few weeks should be all about preparing for their biggest rival.
