The Cleveland Browns Lost Their Opener. Surprise!

So, let’s talk about the Cleveland Browns. As a lifelong fan, I am somehow simultaneously shocked yet not surprised. What happened? I mean the team faceplanted in a pile of manure from the late 3rd quarter through the 4th. I don’t know how else to say it. The new Cleveland Browns channeled the spirit of the old Cleveland Browns.

I was hopeful going in to today’s game. I thought, maybe, just maybe, the hype would manifest in physical form and the Browns would win. I wasn’t asking for them to blowout the other team. I was only asking for a win. Apparently, I was asking for too much.

There are no words that can adequately describe the let down that happened today. I feel disappointed and embarrassed, but I’m from Cleveland, so I haven’t given up hope. The next game will be better. The team will have fewer penalties and play better defensively and offensively. I’m not wishing for this to happen; I’m stating it as a fact. The Browns will be better next time. I won’t promise a win because this is Cleveland and that never ends well for us, but I am promising that they will learn from today’s mistakes. Maybe.

Still a Fan
