The Cleveland Browns are off to a winless start, but there are some positives to pick out among all the negativity seen through the first six weeks.

It is quite easy to give up on the Cleveland Browns in 2017 after the 0-6 start. But if you are brave enough to keep watching, everything isn’t all doom and gloom.

Yes, wins remains the most important thing. However, this team was never going to be good this year. That doesn’t excuse the 0-6 start, but it also doesn’t make it a total shock.

From the play of Myles Garrett in his first two games to the flashes of greatness seen from Duke Johnson and David Njoku, there are some things that have had Browns fans smiling this season. The smiles don’t last long, but they have still existed.

The problem has been the lack of competence from the quarterback position, but Hue Jackson is hoping one week of rest will result in a positive change for DeShone Kizer. One week on the sidelines isn’t a lot of time for reflection, but hopefully Jackson is right.

Predicting a Browns win in an impossible thing to do after the 0-6 start, so let’s just focus on the positives and hope for the best.

We take a look at that and more in today’s Daily Dawg Tags.
