The week ahead

Posted by ESPN.com's James Walker

As always, we have a full lineup in the AFC North blog this week.

Here is a sneak peak of what to expect:

  • This week I will be at the training camp of the Cleveland Browns to get a closer look at Eric Mangini and Co. I'm particularly interested in the quarterback battle between Brady Quinn and Derek Anderson.

  • Tuesday at 4 p.m. ET we will have our weekly chat on the AFC North.

  • Wednesday night will be the debut episode of HBO's "Hard Knocks" television series featuring the Cincinnati Bengals. Not everyone has HBO. Therefore every Thursday morning for the rest of the summer, the AFC North blog will run a "Hard Knocks" recap detailing the latest episode.

  • Also, on Thursday night I will return to Pittsburgh to check out the preseason debut of the Steelers, who host the Arizona Cardinals in a Super Bowl rematch at Heinz Field.

  • AFC West blogger Mike Sando and I will have a Double Coverage debate and podcast midweek on the Steelers and Cardinals leading up to the preseason game.

  • On Saturday, we will have the weekend mailbag. So if you have any questions on your favorite team, send them here.

It's going to be another fun week in the division. Stay tuned to the AFC North blog for updates.
