Dear Browns fans,
We find ourselves in quite an interesting quandary. The achilles heel (or thumb) for the quarterback with whom all of our hopes and dreams rest for the Browns' 2013 season has been discovered and exploited. Our most 'talented' offensive weapon and hall of fame hopeful was traded for a draft pick. To overcome these challenges, the Browns staff has hired the fresh-limbed Willis McGahee, who is well rested because he hasn't played football in about a year, and decided that Jason Campbell was second string in name only.
At this point in the season, it is clear that the Browns have no chance of winning a significant number of games. Unless Brian Hoyer channels Tom Brady and replaces Weeden like Brady replaced Bledsoe (I suppose he could as he was Brady's understudy), we are once again waiting till next year before we truly have a team to root for.
Yet we are Browns fans, and we root for the Browns against all rational inclination. There is something in our blood- it's like a genetic defect. Yet, at this point what does it mean to root for the Browns? Are we rooting for losses and playing the long game? Or are we rooting for wins? Independent of the intentions of the Browns' front office, and without any knowledge on the future of the season, would you be happy if the Browns beat the Vikings?
Tell me what you think.
