The Daily Dawg Tags bring you all the Cleveland Browns news you need to know, including a look at one power ranking that’s sure to raise some eyebrows
They really don’t have anyone to blame except themselves. The Cleveland Browns have struggled so much as of late that it’s hard for those who don’t bleed orange and brown to buy into the positive changes around Berea.
That’s why a new power ranking from Peter King has them in worse shape than they were last season. Apparently King thinks there aren’t even 10 teams worse than the Browns, putting them at No. 24 in his rankings.
So, is he right? Are the Browns better than last season, or did they take a step backward?

Cleveland Browns News
"“Power rankings are generated in no small part to get fanbases upset, despite the fact they don’t mean anything and are contrived. Well, it worked. Peter King released power rankings in his Football Morning in America column and he ranked the Cleveland Browns 24th, which is simply absurd, because relative to the rest of the league, that would mean the team has actually gotten worse this offseason.”"
Power rankings really do mean nothing but they can be fun. For the Browns, and their fans, this doesn’t feel fair. They’re clearly better than a season ago, but they have to start putting wins together to convince the doubters.
"“The Browns and Packers were expected to hold joint practicesthis season in the lead-up to the preseason game between the two squads on August 22 at 4 p.m.”"
These practices won’t happen now that the league issued a memo that teams could not conduct joint practices this year. Teams do benefit from being able to beat up on someone other than teammates but the lack of these practices isn’t likely to have a long-term effect.
"“Myles Garrett has offered to the help the family of slain BBQ chef David McAtee, who was shot and killed by law enforcement officers early Monday morning during a protest in Louisville, Ky. over the death of George Floyd.”"
This isn’t the first time that Myles Garrett has stepped up and done something to show his high character. Well done Myles, it’s always refreshing to see athletes who are willing to do the right thing.
For the most part, the Browns have had a mistake-free offseason but Greg Newland looks over everything and identifies three areas where they could have done a little better.
