It’s a do-or-die season for these five members of the Cleveland Browns.

It’s no secret to fans of the Cleveland Browns who’ve watched losing season after losing season. The 2020 campaign is the biggest season for the franchise since its rebirth in 1999.

That’s especially true after the team fell on its face a season ago, where expectations were so high that the Browns were picked by some to represent the AFC in the Super Bowl.

No need to re-head the cold pizza on that one, we know our team stunk and it resulted it then picking 10th in the NFL Draft.

So, here we are again, with a new general manager and a new head coach. What’s changed? The big thing is that the Browns didn’t start breaking off parts as they’ve done in previous regime changes.

The organization kept star players when it could’ve gone into another rebuild. Instead, the organization correctly saw that the roster is talented and young, which goes along in a winning football team. If the quarterback can get right, there’s really no telling what the Browns are capable of doing in 2020.

As usual with the Browns, the caveat of “IF” hangs over the city like the gray clouds that pollute the skyline for sixth months of the year.

But enough of the gloom and done. It’s a do-or-die season for the Browns, and especially these five players as the team seeks to end it’s 17-season playoff drought.
