BEREA, Ohio -- Here are five observations on the Cleveland Browns, based on their two Aug. 1 practices:

We're betting that rookie head coach Romeo Crennel is working so hard in camp -- at least it sure looks as though he is -- that he never even hears the freight trains that regularly rumble through this tiny city near the airport during daily practices. Standing on the sideline watching practice, you can hear the train whistles a few minutes before the clickety-clack on the tracks that are only a few blocks from what is still one of the NFL's best-maintained complexes.
