Cleveland Browns Jerseys

Coach talks about Marcus Bernard and others..

  • (On Marcus Bernard learning to  play with his hand on the ground) – “He’s got a long way to go physically in  terms of getting himself in the kind of shape and condition he needs to be in to  compete.  He’s working through that, he’s out there taking reps.  I  think he’ll agree and he’ll probably tell you he needs to make some strides  there.”
    (On what he means by “a long  way to go”) – “He’s just got to get in a little bit better playing  shape.”
    (On if Benard bulked up too  much) – “I don’t know.  He’s one of those guys that I wasn’t around a  year ago.  Based on what I’ve seen he needs to do that.”
    (On Brandon Jackson playing  against his former team) – “He did some things in the practice Saturday I  thought were impressive.  He’s got burst, he’s got size and he’s a good  runner.  I’m sure he’ll be amped up to play his former team.  A team  he contributed greatly to, he started 13 games for them.  I’m sure he’s got  a lot of friends there.  He’s not unlike a lot of free agents that go to  another team.  I’m sure he’s got a lot of very strong relationships  there.  It will be one of those deals where he’s a Cleveland Brown and  he’ll compete, but he’ll have a lot of hellos, handshakes and hugs I’m  sure.”
    (On Brandon Jackson not having  a penalty or lost fumble during his four seasons with the Packers) – “Sounds  good to me.  I think I knew that.  It’s important.  You want guys  that are durable, productive and efficient and he’s displayed that.”
    (On having a third true tackle  or a guy flexible between positions) – “Ideally, you’d like to have, on game  day, a guy who can backup tackle and guard.  Obviously, the backup guys  have to move on both sides.  Then you’d like to have a guy that’s your  backup center and guard.  We’re developing those guys in the midst of those  guys competing.  There’s a long list of those guys at this point.”
    (On if it’s tougher on  Branndon Braxton because he’s a true tackle) – “No, I think it’s important  that you are trying to either develop a tackle to be here or if you don’t have  that then you do something to go get one. He has a body type and we feel like  his best position to make this team is at tackle.  I don’t think that hurts  his chances.”

    Marcus will be OK. I like him and his style of play. Let him get into shape and he should settle right in.
