Around the league

We're all about the Giants here at Big Blue View. I do recognize, however, that there are other teams in the NFL and other things going on. With that in mind let's go touring the league, something I will try to do once every week or two weeks.

• Great news Tuesday night about Kevin Everett, the Buffalo tight end who suffered catastrophic injuries making a tackle Sunday against Denver. He has voluntary movement of his arms and legs and it appears chances that he will walk again have improved dramatically.

"Based on our experience, the fact that he's moving so well, so early after such a catastrophic injury means he will walk again," said Dr. Barth Green, chairman of the department of neurological surgery at the University of Miami school of medicine.

"It's totally spectacular, totally unexpected," Green told The Associated Press.

• What the hell is going on in Cleveland? Charlie Frye starts the first game, is benched before halftime and is almost immediately traded to Seattle, where he will be third-string. You'd think that would mean Brady Quinn would move into the starting lineup, but the Browns say they haven't decided. Yikes!

Romeo Crennel seems like a nice guy and was a successful assistant coach, but has no idea what he's doing as head guy in Cleveland. This is ridiculous, even by Browns standards.

• The Patriots might lose draft picks after they were caught spying on the Jets Sunday. Is New England Coach Bill Belichick really a genius, or is he a master of dirty tricks?

• Ex-Giant Will Demps has been signed by the Houston Texans.

• The quarterback carousel is spinning in Oakland. First overall pick JaMarcus Russell may finally sign with the team and practice today. Also, Daunte Culpepper may start this weekend due to a freak injury suffered by Josh McCown on the final play of Sunday's loss to Detroit.
