Daily Dawg Tags: The march to 0-16 continues


Spanning the virtual globe to bring you the latest news about the Cleveland Browns and the NFL – these are your Daily Dawg Tags for Monday, Dec. 12.

A bye week may have given some Cleveland Browns fans hope for a win in yesterday’s game, but it made no difference. The Browns showed up and played as bad as ever, falling to 0-13 on the year.

It is hard to say the loss was surprising based on how the season has gone, but each one just serves to further demoralize an already reeling fan base.

Robert Griffin III was supposed to provide some sort of spark to the offense, but all he did was make questionable throws. There seemed to be no middle ground between balls straight into the turf and those thrown up for grabs.

The loss leaves the Browns with three chances to pick up a win, including one more game at home, which happens to be on Christmas Eve. It will be surprising if anyone shows up for that game.

A win at this point would not only surprise Browns fans, but would shock fans all around the NFL. It may also lead to a coach being fired, as a loss to this team would be inexcusable.

Another Monday means another day after a Browns loss, so let’s take a look at the news surrounding the latest loss in today’s edition of the Daily Dawg Tags.
