The Cleveland Browns haven’t been off to the hot start we all anticipated this offseason. While the defense has stepped up and played great the past two weeks, most of the Browns woes have been due to Baker Mayfield’s play.
It’s hard to believe that on Sunday after the Cleveland Browns face off against the Baltimore Ravens, the season will be 25 percent completed.
A question among Browns fans right now prior to this matchup is if they’ll pull to .500 and into a tie with the Ravens for first place within the division. The even bigger question is if the Browns offensive woes shall continue.
It’s been quite shocking, how Baker Mayfield and the offense have played this first month of the season. With the addition of wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., and offensive coordinator Todd Monken, the Browns were poised for offensive greatness this season.

However, with change comes adversity, and the team has faced a ton of it in this first month. Many fans are wondering…what’s wrong with Baker? Is it because of the offensive line? Is it because of the playcalling? Is it Monken’s vertical playbook, which causes plays needing more time to develop down the field?
We’re going to find out what the problem is with the offense eventually. But in the meantime, we should as Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers once said, “R-E-L-A-X!”
Baker Mayfield is the answer to our franchise. He ended our 635-day winless streak. He broke the rookie touchdown record in just 13 games. He’s one of us, and as fans, we have to continue to believe in him.
There’s going to come a time where the offense finally comes together, and it could result in the perfect storm for our team. The Browns are currently in the toughest stretch of their schedule. But after the team plays the Patriots in week 8, the schedule favors the Browns.
Dawg Pound, keep the faith. Believe in Baker to turn this season around. Let’s embrace the underdog mentality.
The Browns are going to put it together this season. Let’s just hope it starts this Sunday in Baltimore, before it’s just a too late.
