Changes

With the kick off of Training Camp and the time when actual football begins, this is typically the part of the year when us Browns fans have to bite our lip, grit our teeth and count the days until LeBron James makes us enjoy watching Cleveland sports again. As the Browns have seen their fourth organizational overhaul since returning a long gruesome ten years ago, the message of this off-season (similar to many others) is change.

This change, however, has a different look. We are used to the past move seems to be the flashy take the best talent philosophy. This includes draft picks and free-agent signings that emulate a fan playing the Franchise mode on a Madden video game. Instead, we have seen these Browns do nothing of the sort. While this has given us a little less reason to enjoy our time of optimism that other football fans call the off-season, I like this new approach.

Maybe re-building with this new idea of molding a true team is what will enable us to have more winning seasons and less top ten draft picks. The old way certainly hasn’t been working. A brief playoff appearance and another winning season in ten years doesn’t really rank the Browns as a top franchise in the league. Let’s hope that these “new guys” are building a core that will see success and make Cleveland a competitor in the ever-tough AFC North for years to come. For now, all we have is that good old familiar word; hope. Let’s anticipate this new regime is change we can believe in.

  1. Right on, Sef! I completely agree. This is good, old fashioned football in its approach. Do not build expectations; keep the media at bay; use the Draft to fill actual needs rather than pick up flashy names regardless of position; work on the trenches; and have high expectations for the players at training camp in terms of work ethic.
