The Cleveland Browns are looking for some improvement in the second half of the season after a second straight 0-8 start.

The concept of rock bottom comes up often when discussing the 2017 Cleveland Browns, yet there seems to be no limit for just how low this team can go.

The Browns are now 0-8 after a 33-16 loss to the Minnesota Vikings in London, in a game the Browns actually led at halftime. But as usual, the mistakes piled up and it became only a matter of time before the opponent pulled away.

There is now a long week off that will certainly be filled with talk of potential firings, but don’t expect anything crazy to happen. Jimmy Haslam knows what he signed up for and has to give the group in charge some time. The owner was the one who made it clear he expected the team to get better next year, and not this year.

Watching an 0-8 team is no fun so hopefully the Browns are able to come out in the second half and pick up a few wins. Even one would be nice right now, which shows the sad sate of being a Browns fan.

No one wants to already be talking about the draft but it is once again one of those years. We take a look at that and more in today’s edition of the Daily Dawg Tags.
