Numb. I’m simply numb. The Browns traveled to the Windy City on Christmas Eve, hoping to capture their first win of 2017. They left defeated 20-3. They lost to a fucking shit Bears team, and it looked as if they were playing a Super Bowl contender. A 3 win team looked miles ahead of the beleaguered Browns.
There’s really no point in breaking down the game, stats, or anything similar. It’s over. They looked like dog shit. This next week the Browns will travel to Pittsburgh to take on the Steelers. This past game against Chicago was our last hope, and it was stomped on.
They did however, fall ass-backwards into the first overall draft pick this year. Hooray? Some fans would be excited to have the chance to draft so high, and potentially find a franchise player whether it’d be a Quarterback, elite Pass Rusher, or a skilled receiver.
I hate it. The first overall pick absolutely sucks. 0-16 is even more gut wrenching. The Browns also hold a second top 5 pick thanks to the Deshaun Watson trade with Houston. A sad, sad consolation prize.
@Browns just make it stop please!!! Some teams hope for playoff births, playoff bye’s, or Super Bowl runs. I just wanted one lousy god-damn win. They simply could not get it done in 2017. Let’s just pray to the Football gods that 0-16 is FINALLY rock bottom. You know it’s bad when you’d gladly sacrifice a limb for more points than the other team when the clock hits 0:00.
They’ve sucked since ’99, and fans like myself always thought, “It can’t get worse, can it?”. Well, it always got worse. From Brady Quinn, to Colt McCoy. Butch Davis, to Eric Mangini. Johnny Manziel and Justin Gilbert, and many more names. It always got worse without fail. Maybe this time is the charm? I sure hope so. Who the fuck knows, 1. who we’ll pick, and 2. if pick would even want to play for the Browns?
So, tune in on New Years Eve to witness some history! The Browns will turn their head, and cough for the Super Bowl primed Steelers, at Heinz Field. Browns fans, brace yourself for memes, losing statistics, and retread jokes. It’s going to be really hard for me to come back from a black mark like 0-16, but I’ll never fully give up hope.
Part of what makes being a Browns fan fun, is thinking about how awesome it would be if the ever managed to be good. I reckon it’d be the best feeling sports could offer (besides Big Z hoisting Lord Stanley of course). Hang in there Browns fans, only one week of hell left.
For the last time in 2017, let’s go Brownies!
