Five Reasons To Be Optimistic About the Browns


5. Build Off of a 7-Win Season

The Browns went 7-9 in Mike Pettine’s first season as an NFL head coach. Heading into the 2014 season, national pundits were predicting the Browns to be one of the worst football teams in the league and let’s not forget the Browns lost their season opener last year before going on to win seven of their next ten games. Seven wins is not a measuring stick of success, but something positive to build off of, especially considering the Browns suffered through six straight seasons of five wins or less before Pettine was hired as head coach. The season did not end the way anyone in the organization hoped, but many of the key guys on that team are still here and hungry to improve upon what was a solid season compared to recent years.

    1 reason I won’t return to this site…. having to click 6 different pages for one shortish article??? Really?? Shame because the site looks pretty decent too, but I can’t tolerate Bleacher Report type articles.

    The article was 5 reasons so each reason got a different page. If you don’t like that style of article then that’s your prerogative.

    Michael – Thank you for your feedback, we’re for sure not trying to be like ‘Bleacher Report’ by any means, but some of our longer articles do require a click through if for nothing else than to make the story look like one long huge piece. Please be patient with us and please continue to visit as we will continue to make strides and bring the best Northeast Ohio coverage and commentary we can to our readers!
