The Prez Sez: Browns Backers President’s Week 3 predictions vs. Bears

These Presidents know a thing or two about Cleveland Browns football

Hilton Head Island chapter

Browns Backers Presidents just don’t simply look good and do all the work to organize their chapters. They know football, and more importantly, know Cleveland Browns football.

The Browns Backers of Hilton Head Island chapter has spent the past two seasons building both their local membership as well as welcoming all visitors to this tourist-oriented area. They do orange Jell-O shots after each Browns’ touchdown - while they last. For fun they try to do a pajama party for a night game once a year. In the past before the pandemic, they were able to do bus trips and a BYE Week Bar Crawl.

This chapter also does their fair share of fundraising. The past two years they have made two of the largest donations of toys to “Toys for Tots” of any location on the island. This year they are switching to help families more directly through the “Angel Wish Tree Program” run by the local Child Abuse Prevention Association. The Hilton Head Island group started the first three weeks of the season in support of Hilton Head Humane Association through their “Going to the Dawgs (and Cats)” supply drive. Members and visitors were dropping off items from the Humane Association’s wish list plus cash donations.

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:

Central California Browns Backers

President: Mark Frantz

Fresno, California

Favorite former player: Leroy Kelly

Favorite current player: Kareem Hunt

Viewing location: BJ’s Restaurant

Best menu item: Deep dish pizza

Weekly prediction: “The Browns face a Bears team that seems to be in transition. After finally throwing in the towel on Mentor, Ohio native QB Mitchell Trubisky, Chicago picked another QB with some buckeye state background. Anyone who follows Ohio State knows Justin Fields went to the Windy City as a first-round draft choice in 2021. He gets the start against a remade Brownie defense that unleashes the hounds and puts together the kind of game we’ve been waiting to see. A five sack, two interception explosion from the likes of Jadeveon Clowney, Myles Garrett, Greg Newsome, and JOK set up the offense with great field position all game. Baker Mayfield has a big day hitting on TD passes to David Njoku and Kareem Hunt while Nick Chubb tops 100 yards rushing in back-to-back weeks and scores two rushing touchdowns. Cleveland 35, Chicago 6.”

Quebec Dawg Pound

President: Jean Cabot

Ville de Quebec, Quebec - Canada

Favorite former player: Clay Matthews

Favorite current player: Myles Garrett

Viewing location: Pub Chez Girard

Best menu item: Cheeseburger

Weekly prediction: “The Browns offensive line is ranked by many experts as one of the best in the NFL. Add to that a great one-two punch at running back, the Bears’ defense is not a good match-up for the running game. On the other side of the ball, excellent pass rush and improvement in the secondary will do a great job. BROWNS by two scores, 34-17.”

Gwinnett GA Browns Backers

President: Deke Young

Sugar Hill, Georgia

Favorite former player: Hanford Dixon

Favorite current player: Rashard Higgins

Viewing location: American Legion Post 127

Best menu item: Cheeseburger

Weekly prediction: “The Browns came up short in Week 1 vs. the Chiefs when they could not contain Patrick Mahomes, Travis Kelsey and Tyreek Hill. None of these play for Chicago. The Bears will be starting rookie Justin Fields. Cole Kemet and Allen Robinson are hardly the same threat as Kelsey and Hill. The Browns start our early and cruise to an easy two score lead. Chubb and Hunt will grind the clock. Expect the bench to get a lot of snaps in the second half. Browns 31, Bears 10.”


Browns Backers of Hilton Head Island

President: Jason Todd

Hilton Head Island, South Carolina

Favorite former player: Hanford Dixon

Favorite current player: Myles Garrett

Viewing location: Street Meet The American Tavern

Best menu item: Soul Kitchen - Chipotle ranch tossed wings and fries basket

Weekly prediction: “If Week 1 was an indicator of things to come, Baker and the passing game should jump out to an early lead in this one. The Bears’ secondary is suspect and the Browns’ offense looked very capable for most of the game in KC. Hunt will be involved in both the air and ground attack. Slipping him out for a screen could slow the Bears’ pass rush. The TE’s should also see a lot more targets in this one. Of course, the backbone of the offense Nick Chubb will pound the ball with the lead and preserve this win.

The defense should prepare for more Justin Fields even if Andy Dalton is still starting this game. The Bears also come in with a strong backfield led by David Montgomery. He is a strong runner that will test our tacklers. The defense should be able to gel a little more with the new starters by Week 3 and we could see the Bears’ offense struggle to score. The Browns will beat the Bears at home 31-17.”


Point Place Dawg Pound

President: Becky Turner

Toledo, Ohio

Favorite former player: Bernie Kosar

Favorite current player: Myles Garrett

Viewing location: Mayfly Tavern

Best menu item: Bacon mushroom Swiss burger with hand-cut fries

Weekly prediction: “It is wonderful to see the way our team is coming together. As a life-long Browns fan, I believe our time has finally arrived. We have so much talent and with Baker and Coach Stefanski leading the team I see great things in our future. I always hoped for greatness for the Cleveland Browns, and after last season’s accomplishments I know we can go all the way! We want it more! Browns 24-17”
