Daily Dawg Tags: Keeping this season in perspective


Spanning the virtual globe to bring you the latest news about the Cleveland Browns and the NFL – these are your Daily Dawg Tags for Wednesday, Oct. 19.

No one ever said it was easy to be a fan of the Cleveland Browns.

The 2016 season is only six weeks old, yet the Browns are out of playoff contention and still without a single victory. The lack of being a contender is not surprising, yet the 0-6 start is a bit unexpected.

Some may direct their frustrations at Hue Jackson, but the 0-6 start is much bigger than just one person. This team was already thin in talent when the season began, and the injuries have done nothing to help.

The best end result for this season is for the rookies to develop and get the mistakes out of the way before hopefully somewhat competing in 2017. So while it is extremely frustrating to keep watching this team lose,  there is no need to panic about the team’s future just yet. Let’s take a look at that view and more in today’s edition of the Daily Dawg Tags.
