This upcoming season for the Cleveland Browns has a lot of promise but also could be a nightmare if these scenarios take shape
No one likes to have nightmares. They can keep you up some nights and thinking about nightmares can just be downright terrifying. As fans of the Cleveland Browns, most of us have had plenty of experience in this department of terror.
Some years, it seems the nightmares each year are just a continuation of the previous season’s troubles. But in recent times, those nightmares haven’t seemed quite as bad. But now we are entering a very interesting year where we don’t know still who will behind center or for how long.
Let’s look at a few nightmare scenarios this season that none of us are hoping for but if they do, you’re going to have a hard time getting a good night’s sleep.
Cleveland Browns nightmare scenario No. 5: Nick Chubb or Kareem Hunt get injured
Last season we saw how an injury to Kareem Hunt for nine games affected the Browns offense. It was already a struggle to move the ball with the quarterback
who played through numerous injuries. Losing Hunt just highlighted his value to the team.
Chubb is the team’s No. 1 back but Hunt’s versatility to run and catch the ball was a big advantage to Cleveland. D’Ernest Johnson did a valiant job when asked to come into games or start last season when both Chubb and Hunt were sidelined.
When the running backs were healthy and played the whole season back in 2020 Cleveland was able to get into the playoffs with an 11-5 season record. Both Chubb and Hunt made their fair share of plays during that campaign which helped secure wins.
If either player gets hurt this season for any length it could mean a long year.
