The Browns have been the doormat of the National Football League for years. The only way to change perceptions is to walk the walk and talk the talk. The Browns did do some talking, and then they did some walking (into the end zone).
It’s the second day of training camp and the Browns quarterbacks are in the far corner of the practice facility. They’re tucked away from most of the crowd, lining up on the goal line, and attempting to toss footballs into a garbage can in the back corner of the end zone. There weren’t many people watching, but I was, and it did not take long for Baker Mayfield to steal the show.
I got the chance to attend Cleveland Browns training camp the other day. It was fun. I’ve attended Browns training camp in the past, but this one was different. Partly because I got the chance to talk to Browns Defensive Coordinator Greg Williams for a few minutes. What he told me would make any Browns fan feel really good about the upcoming season.
No one loves their sports teams like Cleveland sports fans. I’m one of you. I was born and raised five minutes from Downtown Cleveland and I (like you) have been through it all. One thing you quickly learn about Cleveland sports fans is how we love talking about our Cleveland sports teams. I’m hoping this blog provides a safe place we can all do this together. And I think I may have figured out what makes us all so crazy about our teams.
