The Cleveland Browns are one of the oldest football franchises playing today, circa 1946. The Browns haven’t had much to cheer about in 2008 and 09′ isn’t much better.
Looking at the cast of players in Cleveland, it doesn’t seem like there’s much for them to be too excited about either.
The 2007 season for the Browns gave Browns fans some optimism for the future – in sports nothing is guaranteed, especially winning.
The 09′ season for the Browns has been dismal at best. Brady Quinn is scrambling for his life and Derek Anderson has yet to regain his form from the 07′ season. When two different quarterbacks throw more interceptions then touchdown passes, you know you are in trouble.
The team lost a 27-6 game to the Broncos in Denver. The Broncos had one of the downright worst defenses in the 2008 season, and they looked absolutely spectacular in week 2 against the Browns. The Browns didn’t have anything going their way on either side of the ball.
Cleveland lost this game by a whole 21 points to a Broncos team that isn’t said to be too strong this year. The defense in Denver certainly isn’t one of the better ones in the league, yet they still held the Cleveland Browns to less than a touchdown.
The Cleveland Browns have only scored one touchdown in their last 33 quarters of football. This stat is downright deplorable and I can’t remember another team that’s gone through any kind of a similar streak.
It seems the Browns will be getting a very high draft pick in the spring time – that can be one of the turning points for their franchise.
