The Cleveland Browns at the Bye Week–it wasn’t supposed to be this way. This version of those beloved orange helmets haven’t lived up to fan expectations–and that’s being polite.
At 6-6 the team is underperforming and what was once thought to be a slam-dunk playoff season, instead looks poised to end with a pick in the upper half of the 2021 draft.
Unlike last season when everyone seemed hyper focused through Covid season, this season has been filled with hurdles new to second-year coach and GM Kevin Stefanski and Andrew Berry.
-The OBJ drama finally ended, possibly exposing some friction in the locker room–if you like hanging around the rumor mill.
There’s a call for Kevin Stefanski to turn play calling duties over to Alex Van Pelt.
Mock drafts have the Browns taking a quarterback…in the first round!
The Browns can’t score 17.0 points per game…a real bugger considering Kevin Stefanski and Andrew Berry know they need to average 30.0 to win in today’s NFL.
These are just some of the major problems. Did I mention the defense resembled a leaky canoe sitting in the Cuyahoga for the first half of the season? There were times they couldn’t stop anybody.
Here’s five Browns whose stocks are down the Bye week.
