There is no denying that the Cleveland Browns are incredible this year. At least compared to last season. They are my favorite dumpster fire in the NFL and I cannot get enough. Last year, they were 0-16 and it was just sad. This year, they are still making the same bonehead mistakes, but with good players. We get the people Cleveland acting like the citizens of Pawnee, ridiculous trades, games that only come down to the wire, and now the firing of Head Coach Hue Jackson and Offensive Coordinator Todd Haley.
This team is so much fun to watch. They made some serious moves in the offseason and now have some real talent. They drafted Baker Mayfield, traded for Jarvis Landry, and Myles Garrett is finally coming alive. Not only are the players exciting, the games themselves have me on the edge of my seat. They should be winning some games handily, but since the Browns gonna Browns, they can never seem to pull away. With the exception of the Chargers and the last game against the Steelers, every game has been a nail-biter. Best of all, half of their games have ended in overtime. Cleveland has been through so much, and they are still giving us free football. Real Mom Theresa stuff here. The best part about them always going into overtime is that they play at 1PM. When every other game ends at 4PM, the Browns still have another 30 minutes that perfectly bridges the gap between the 1PM and 4:05/4:25PM games.
My favorite saber-metric from the Browns: they have had every possible outcome happen to them. Overtime win, overtime loss, regulation win, regulation loss and of course, a tie.
The games have been awesome so far. But when they end, the show is only just beginning. The front office in Cleveland is an absolute cirrus. First, they traded Josh Gordon, who was arguably their best receiver, to the Patriots for very little in return. Now we have a whole new shitstorm that is making everyone forget about that. The day after Cleveland Cavaliers Head Coach Tryonn Lue was fired, the Browns decided to clean house and fire HC Hue Jackson and OC Todd Haley. It is about freaking time. It amazes me that it took them two and a half years to fire the coach with the worst record in the Super Bowl era. Defensive Coordinator Gregg Williams has taken over as Interim Head Coach which is a whole different forest fire that is about to start. I realize he is probably the highest ranking coach on the team after the firings, but I would never trust the guy who gave up 45 point to the Raiders to run the rest of the team. No matter what they try to do, in the end the Browns gonna Browns.
I very much understand and accept the way that Browns fan act. S/o to my man, McNeil (@reflog_18 on Twitter) and Connor Shaw (@cshaw1696), not the quarterback, my buddy and Browns fan who they tag on instagram instead of the quarterback.
