(( 10 year veteran signal caller Jeff George did nothing but practice last week. Head coach Norv Turner elected not to play the former pro bowler in last Friday night's win over the Patriots. That move seemed to further cement the realization that George will be nothing more than a backup on this team. ((JEFF GEORGE:)) What George can worry about is being ready should Brad Johnson falter or get injured. The former NFL rookie of the year in 1990, who has never completed less than 54 percent of his passes in a season - signed with the Redskins back on April 10 for one reason - to win a ring. ((JEFF GEORGE:)) George, who many believe is owner Daniel Snyder's pick to play - will make more than $18 million dollars over the next four seasons to be an insurance policy on a team where more than the owner's wallet will be wide open. ((JEFF GEORGE:)) Saturday night's game with the Browns kicks off at 7:30. Mike Stevens News 7 Sports.))

One bright spot for the Cavs this year should be quarterback Dan Ellis. He finished last season the nations eighth rated passer with 20 touchdown tosses and 10 interceptions. His expectations are high for this season.
