The nucleus, the future of the Cleveland Browns is another great reason. Watching the group of Mayfield, Denzel Ward, David Njoku, Myles Garrett, Emmanuel Ogbah, and many others as they progress this season in preparation for the years to come is hard to beat.
Whatever the young nucleus does for Cleveland leading up to the regular season and then during that time will be great. There is better news though and that is bigger and better things are to come. The footage on Hard Knocks will be just the coming attractions to what lies ahead.
To know that competitive football will be seen on HBO and then during the regular season on a weekly basis is incredible. Now, there were times Cleveland was in games but it was more due to their opponent’s not playing up to their level. When the Browns did play well, it was evident that could not last.
In 2018, Cleveland will be in games regularly. It won’t be every game but at least the competitiveness will be seen.
That will hurt then but in 2019, those games they could have won will be won thanks to the bright future that fans will get to see first hand of on HBO and then when Cleveland faces other franchises. Now, Cleveland just needs to continue their positive momentum.
