Browns fans, I am a Broncos fan working for Mid-Utah Radio in Manti/Richfield, Utah and as an aspiring NFL journalist, I have been doing predictions throughout the NFL in alphabetical order. Today, I made it to Cleveland so here goes. Please feel free to comment and even criticize if you feel so inclined.
As the Cleveland Browns prepare for their preseason opener Saturday at Green Bay, there are plenty of questions in C-Town in need of addressing.
While Clevelanders still remain upset with the fact native son LeBron James spurned them, it’s obvious that this metropolis on the banks of Lake Erie is still a football city, come what may.
While it’s apparent that Delhomme and McCoy make a quality comedy duo, as heard on Jim Rome’s radio show last week, the jury is still out on whether or not they can work together solidly through training camp as they strive to make the Browns the best they can be.
Nevertheless, let’s accentuate positives for Cleveland, such as Josh Cribbs. The swift of foot, six-year veteran out of nearby Kent State has proven to be the Browns’ most consistent weapon.
The explosive Cribbs has numerous talents that served Cleveland well last season and with his vast skill set, he is a weapon that other teams have to focus on all week in preparation prior to a game against the Browns.
Additionally, tailback Jerome Harrison (194 car, 862 yards, 5 TD’s) showed some signs of improvement last season while the acquisition of Peyton Hillis from the Denver Broncos adds another weapon to what could be an excellent backfield.
Ultimately, I’m not sure how the Browns season will play out but it will be intriguing to find out.
