A new hype video starring the Cleveland Browns is worth watching as it shows the team make their way from a long stretch of losing, to the hope we see today
There has been an awakening, have you felt it?
That’s the question the latest Cleveland Browns Hype Video starts out with and then proceeds to answer by video-clipping together the story modern Browns fans have now become overly familiar with.
The team stank, then came Dorsey and Kitchens, then came Baker, now comes wins.

If for some reason you’ve let the start of the NFL’s slow-paced offseason lull you away from that sweet Browns Buzz we all ended the 2018 season with, take a five-minute spin through Cleology’s most recent Brown’s Hype Tape called ‘The Awakening.’
It’s like huffing on a sack-full of fourth-quarter adrenaline, stadium noise and bass beats while Baker Mayfield throws dime after dime on the run.
Well, not at first.
Remember how the Browns’ 21st century story begins: The team stank.
So the video starts similarly with some sad clips of dropped passes and Joel Bitonio and Myles Garrett looking all Hued-out and defeated.
We hear the voice of Browns’ radio Jim Donovan utter his immortal words on the final day of the 2017 season about how the team did it “all the way through without a win.”
Then comes Dorsey and Kitchens
After a sad music drone flyover above the Browns facility in Berea, we see general manager John Dorsey as he introduces the 17th coach of the Cleveland Browns Freddie Kitchens and the Awakening begins.
As Kitchens talks about the ups and downs the Browns have endured, they show a series of missed catches and kicks including the horrid 2015 clip of Travis Coons’ blocked field goal being run back by the Ravens’ Will Hill for the touchdown.
Then comes Baker.
We see the Browns’ latest Otto Graham, Baker Mayfield, make his intentions clear a year ago at the 2018 NFL combine by saying, “If anybody’s gonna turn that franchise around, it’d be me.”
Cue the crowd noise. And the drum beats.
Finally, we see the rest of the 2018 story and spoiler alert: Mayfield’s a winner with a rifle for an arm and he’s hella-fun to watch.
And he’s a Cleveland Brown, by Dorsey.
The video ends with Dorsey and Alonzo Highsmith walking away from the camera fist bumping while ‘Do Not Disturb’ by Smokepurpp & Murda Beatz pumps dirty in the background.
The team stank, then came Dorsey, then came Mayfield, then came Kitchens, and now continues the awakening.
And Browns fans are feeling it.
