The Prez Sez: Browns Backers President’s Week 7 Predictions vs. Bengals

The Browns need a cupcake game and the President has mandated a Cincinnati loss in the Battle of Ohio Part 2

Pikes Peak chapter

There are Browns Backers chapters all across the globe.

The Browns Backers of Italy are primarily made up of current and former U.S. Military stationed in Vicenza, Italy. Due to the high OPTEMPO of units, they have low membership numbers and a high turnover rate - but somehow make it work. Everyone in the installation knows who they are because every Friday they are wearing Browns gear.

Browns games air at 7:00 PM (their local time) and watch it via either NFLGamepass or AFN (Armed Forces Network). NFLGamepass has about a 20-second delay. The problem that arises here is that friends of this chapter located stateside will sometimes text messages about the game just viewed in real time and ruin the surprise.

Each week, DBN invites five Browns Backers chapter Presidents to provide their insight with the outcome of Cleveland’s next opponent.

This week’s Presidents and their predictions:

Stark County Browns Backers

President: Janice Rea

Canton, Ohio

Favorite former player: Bernie Kosar

Favorite current player: Myles Garrett

Viewing location: Jerzee’s All American Bar and Grille

Best menu item: Wings

Week 2 prediction: “The Browns are a great running team and we should have a good game but need to watch out for Joe Burrow - he is a good quarterback. We also need to win the games in the division. Browns 35, Bengals 23.”


Pikes Peak Browns Backers

President: Kevin Sabins

Colorado Springs, Colorado

Favorite former player: Leroy Kelly

Favorite current player: Myles Garrett

Viewing location: Old Chicago Pizza and Taproom

Best menu item: Pizza

Week 2 prediction: “The “Battle of Ohio” is always a tough one to predict, regardless of the teams’ records. In the second meeting of these coaches, a new rivalry develops. QB Joe Burrow is improving quickly and will be a formidable opponent for years to come. Baker Mayfield currently has the better offensive line and skill players. Myles Garrett should add to Burrow’s sack total, but I see another close game with the Browns edging out the Bengals 31-28.”


Browns Backers Italy

President: Frank Lauer

Vicenza, Italy

Favorite former player: Lyle Alzado

Favorite current player: Myles Garrett

Viewing location: Caserma Ederle

Best menu item: BBQ pulled pork nachos

Week 2 prediction: “Touchdowns for everyone on the Browns’ squad in this match including RB D’Ernest Johnson. Browns will win this one 42-17.”

Huntington Browns Backers

President: Josh Carey

Huntington, West Virginia

Favorite former player: Jim Brown

Favorite current player: Myles Garrett

Viewing location: Bar None Sports Tavern and Grille

Best menu item: BBQ chicken tenders and fries

Week 2 prediction: “Joe Burrow, the former No. 1 overall pick has played well in his early career and hasn’t turned the ball over much to this point. With that being said, the Bengals offensive line are the league leaders in sacks allowed. Meanwhile, a Browns’ offensive line led by Myles Garrett ranks Top 12 in the league in sacks.

This will cause major problems for the young quarterback. The Baker Mayfield-led Browns’ offensive unit will have plenty of opportunities for success on their side of the ball with the Bengals either punting or turning over the ball. The Bengals give up the second most rushing yards of any unit in the league, which bodes well for a Browns’ offense that leads the league in rushing. Expect Kareem Hunt to run frequently and successfully in this match-up leading to play action success in the passing game to OBJ, Landry, Hooper, and company. Browns overpower the Bengals and easily walk away with the in state victory 31-13.”


Spokane Browns Backers

President: Skip Leasure

Spokane, Washington

Favorite former player: Ozzie Newsome

Favorite current player: Nick Chubb

Viewing location: 24 Taps

Best menu item: Poutine Burger (if you don’t know what poutine is, look it up - it’s delicious)

Week 2 prediction: “Unfortunately, I see us dropping this game. My feeling is that we win in Pittsburgh (for the first time in 17 years) and that this will be a let-down game. Cincy is much better than advertised and I think Joe Burrow is the real deal. It will be close, but I think we lose 23-20.”
