12– The amount of Browns’ players in the huddle, probably. The Cleveland Browns enter this week at a putrid 0-13 and have a bleak slate of games to finish the season. The Browns stare down the barrel at a 0-16 defeated season, and hardly anybody is surprised. Cleveland’s head coach, Hue Jackson, was asked about the team’s production in a post-game interview Sunday. Jackson stated, “This is exactly where I expected us to be at this point in the season. Our guys go out there and fight every week to represent this city, and I bet you could ask anyone in Cleveland and they would say we were meeting his/her expectations.”
“They are not meeting my expectations,” someone from Cleveland responded.
The Browns’ continue to be the NFL’s blue print for what not to do as an organization. Whether it’s play calling, lack of focus or competitive drive, or overall inferior talent, the Browns’ continue to discover new ways to lose week in and week out. Winning a game in the NFL is no easy feat, but losing every game in a season may be even harder. The San Francisco 49ers, New York Jets, and Jacksonville Jaguars are all agreeably very bad teams; however, they each have at least 1 win on the season. And then there are the Browns’. In a year that has haunted most of the country, 2016 has been good to Cleveland. The Cavaliers won the NBA championship (after the Warriors blew a 3-1 lead) and the Indians won the pennant (eventually blowing a 3-1 lead to the Cubs), but the Browns will continue to disappoint Cleveland like only the Browns can.
