Browns fans’ confidence tanks to 43% heading into the bye week

Cleveland fans aren’t happy about the team’s performance since the Ravens game.

This week’s FanPulse voting results are in, heading into Week 7 of the NFL season. If you haven’t signed up to vote each week, you can still do so here.

The Browns confidence dropped a whopping 37 percentage points from 80% to 43% between Weeks 6 and 7. The drastic drop is a result of two losses: voting occurs on Mondays and Tuesdays, so when the previous poll came out, it didn’t quite capture Browns fans’ disappointment in the loss to the 49ers. Therefore, this past week’s poll is fans feeling the impact of going from 2-2 to now being 2-4 heading into the bye. It’ll be tough coming out of the bye too, as Cleveland looks to be facing an undefeated Patriots team.

This week’s national poll looked at who the early coach of the year candidate is. The leading vote-getter was the Kyle Shanahan of the San Francisco 49ers, which was a no-brainer to me. It’s too early to predict anything about the Oakland Raiders, but if Jon Gruden somehow gets that team to keep on winning, then he’d certainly deserve some credit too.
