The Cleveland Browns aren’t living up to expectations in 2021, but with five games remaining, the team still has the talent to turn things around and save the season.

It may be wishful thinking, but crazier things have happened. Usually, bad, crazier things happen to the Browns, but I’m shooting for optimism here.

Really, the Browns need to run the table and finish 11-6 to have a real shot at the playoffs. If they lose one more, they’ll probably be hanging around, with tie breakers sorting things out–and you never want things to shake out that way–ask the 2007 Browns.

So, the Browns have won half a dozen entering the Week 13 Bye, which would’ve been a miracle, say, in 2011, or 2009, or really almost any year of the expansion era (excluding 2002, 2007, 2020).

Of course, the record is a tougher pill to swallow when you carry and are told to have Super Bowl ambitions.

Welp, while these players have seen their stocks go down, the Dawg Pound has been able to count on these five members of the team, who have seen their stocks rise throughout the season.
