A quick trip around the AFCN reveals…

Baltimore Ravens

From the “Blatantly Obvious” department, the Ravens need more help from their tight ends.  This may be the understatement of the season thus far, as their three tight ends have a combined 10 catches for 126 yards and no touchdowns through two games.

While Steeler Nation never has a problem finding a Steelers bar to watch their games, regardless of the city, the rest of us aren’t as blessed.  With that in mind, here’s one fan’s discovery, in Las Vegas no less, of a Ravens bar with all the Maryland trimmings.  Wish I’d known about this last weekend.

Cincinnati Bengals

After Monday’s tilt, the Bengals are running out of cornerbacks.  This is crucial, because Green Bay (their next opponent) has a wealth of receiving talent, and I’m sure the Bengals want as many healthy bodies in their secondary as they can muster.

No real surprise to see the Bengals waive Bernard Scott, as the emergence of Gio Bernard has rendered Scott expendable.  By all reports, he’s a good guy and a great teammate, so I doubt we’ve seen the last of him in the NFL.

Cleveland Browns

Josh Gordon returns to active duty this week at the expense of Tori Gurley, and not a moment too soon.  Regardless of who’s playing quarterback this week for the Browns, Gordon’s return will most certainly help a receiving corps that has been suspect this season.

Speculation is running high after Peter King’s weekend blurb regarding the Browns scouting Johnny Manziel during the Alabama v. Texas A&M game last Saturday.  I’d be willing to guess that many NFL teams are scouting Manziel, but not many are as quarterback needy as the Browns have been.

Pittsburgh Steelers

From “The Standard is the Standard” department, Mike Tomlin acknowledges the offensive issues the Steelers have experienced, and vows not to panic.  To be fair, I’m surprised the word “panic” is even in Tomlin’s vocabulary, as he’s appeared, for the most part, to be one of the more even-keeled head coaches in the game today.

Todd Haley reportedly clashed with Antonio Brown Monday night, as it appears that Brown was unsatisfied with his use during the game.  Haley has publicly argued with wide receivers before, including Anquan Boldin and Dwayne Bowe, so this is certainly not unchartered waters for him.  However, the timing could be better when team cohesiveness is sorely needed.
