Posted by ESPN.com's James Walker

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

Morning take: With two weeks off to prepare, let's see if Mr. 8-5 brings his 'A' game the rest of the season.

Morning take: Remember the verbal jousts Burress had with Baltimore early in his career, once causing former Ravens tight end Shannon Sharpe to call him "Plexiglass"? Fun times.

  • Cleveland Browns general manager Phil Savage chimed in Thursday on the topic of his team quitting in a recent loss to the Denver Broncos. Savage characterized it instead as a lack of focus down the stretch, not a lack of effort.

Morning take: Is he saying the Browns quit mentally?

Morning take: This is clearly good news for the Steelers. But you wonder how limited Parker will be with a harness protecting a hurt shoulder.
