Morning take: No Gruden for Browns

Here are the most interesting stories Wednesday in the AFC North:

Morning take: Gruden doesn't seem interested in the openings that are available. The Browns need to move forward with their search, make a decision and begin implementing their new program.

Morning take: Roethlisberger is 8-2 in his career against the Ravens. Does that work in Pittsburgh's favor? Or is Baltimore due for a big win on Saturday?

Morning take: I would put Roethlisberger in my top five, but not on par with Brady. I don't think there is any question that Brady is the NFL’s MVP this season.

Morning take: The most important names are cornerback Johnathan Joseph and running back Cedric Benson. Both decisions will greatly impact the team's direction in 2011.
