Programming note: Taking time off

The Super Bowl is over and the NFL combine begins in 12 days. It seems like the perfect time to catch a quick breather. Yes, you're going to have to survive without me or my daily Joe Flacco updates for a week. For those wondering when my last full day off was, you have to go back to July 22. How long ago was that? Ed Reed still hadn't participated in an offseason practice and the Browns were still owned by Randy Lerner.

Even though I'm going away, make sure you come back to the blog. The vigilant editors will post news, links and videos throughout the week. My plan is to spend some time with my wife and son, and I'll see if they still remember my name. Hope everyone has an enjoyable week, and I will catch up with you next Monday.
