The Browns have been bad since 1999, but 2016 has provided fans with a new low.
The Browns are now 0-8, which is the first time that has been achieved since returning to the shores of Lake Erie, and is the first time they have this record since 1975.
Even in past seasons when the playoffs were impossible, the team still found ways to pick up early wins, even if it was only one or two.
Obviously, that is not the case this year. The offseason leading up the actual season seemed to be a much more exciting time, when the improbable still seemed somewhat possible.
The team now has eight more chances to pick up a win with a tough schedule ahead. The only good news is that there are five more home games. There may not be many people in the stands, but the home atmosphere should help this young roster.
No team wants to finish 0-16, but in the long run it wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world. It is painful for fans to watch, but a top pick in the draft could do more good than one or two wins. Even then, one or two wins may be enough to still finish with the worst record in the league.
It is always a bit depressing when draft talk comes up so early in the season, but so it goes as of late for Browns fans.
