The Browns have beat two bad teams
After the horrendous start to the season vs. the Baltimore Ravens, the Browns have put together back to back wins vs. the Cincinnati Bengals and the Washington Football Team. While neither of those teams is great, at 2-1, it is the first time in 84 games that the Browns enter a Sunday game with a record above 500. Some have shared that with two poor quality wins, fans shouldn’t be excited.
Wait a second, all of you have been through the worst of the worst since 1999 when this team returned. With only two seasons of success in 21 seasons, this is certainly a time to be excited as a Browns fan, I don’t care who they beat. One thing is for sure, the Browns don’t make the schedule, and can only beat the teams put in front of them.
The toughest thing to remove from a locker room is a losing culture. At times as a Browns fan, it has felt like every single break has gone against them. The last huge one that sticks out is the first down in Oakland in 2018 that was overturned and ended up costing the Browns the game. The video appeared clear that the Browns got the first down and the game would’ve been over. Instead, it goes to overtime and the Browns lose.
Then the team ends the season one game short of making the playoffs. I won’t even mention the drop in 2017 that would have likely kept the Browns from going 0-16 vs. the Pittsburg Steelers.
General manager Andrew Berry and Stefanski are on the verge of doing something great in Cleveland and trust me, I’m as negative as any Browns fan you’ll meet. Injuries have been tough, and the offseason restrictions from COVID-19 haven’t done them any favors either.
This team isn’t top-five in the NFL but can compete and make the playoffs in 2020. Just give them a chance to get healthy and on the same page.
