Daily Dawg Tags: Hoping for the best against Jacksonville
The Cleveland Browns will not be at full strength this Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars, meaning things could get ugly fast.
If Cleveland Browns fans need a glimpse of a team that turned things around quickly, the Jacksonville Jaguars are the perfect case.
The 6-3 Jaguars are coming to Cleveland this Sunday to take on the 0-9 Browns in a game where the Browns’ two Week 1 starting offensive tackles will be out and the quarterback is dealing with hurt ribs. Corey Coleman is making his return, so at least there’s that.
The main storyline leading up to the game has been the comments made by former Brown Tashaun Gipson, where he basically calls out the front office and sees an 0-16 ahead for his former team.
This has enraged some fans, but Gipson is simply speaking the truth. And when he said he hopes the Jaguars score 40 on Sunday, that is entirely possible as well. The Browns just gave up 38 in Detroit.
But as I always say, the only way to stay sane is to hold out some hope for a Browns victory. If not, there is no point to even watch, unless you enjoy the stress.
We take a look at this Sunday and more in today’s edition of the Daily Dawg Tags.
