Daily Dawg Tags: A familiar spot in the power rankings
The Cleveland Browns didn’t start the season in the basement of the NFL power rankings, but it didn’t take too long to get back.
Cleveland Browns fans are better off ignoring national power rankings at this point.
The Browns are obviously at the bottom, but the fact they are there yet again is something the front office can’t ignore.
The team entered the season near the basement of the power rankings, but everyone thought it would be the New York Jets or the San Francisco 49ers who held that honor. Now, the Browns and the 49ers are duking it out as the two remaining 0-6 teams.
Things are so bad the rumors have already started about Jimmy Haslam potentially cleaning house, or at least clearing out the front office. So much for the long-term plan.
All of this remains speculation but it is hard to see Haslam sticking with this group if the teams finishes with one or two wins. He knew things would be bad, but this is a new low. Fans can believe it because this is the Browns we are talking about, but that doesn’t make it acceptable.
We take a look at this and more in today’s Daily Dawg Tags.
