2015 Outlook:

The Browns surprised some people winning seven games last year. They didn’t win those games with their offense though. Brian Hoyer is out as their quarterback and Josh McCown is in. Did the Browns watch him in Tampa last year? He should not be starting in the NFL. I don’t care if Johnny Manziel is drunk while he’s playing he should be in instead of him. They did acquire a couple of receivers who were decent once. Not sure it will help that much though. The running game might be good though. That’s their best chance at scoring.


The Browns defense is good. Really, they have a nice defense. They’ve used some recent first round picks on their secondary and it has paid off. This year’s first rounder, Danny Shelton, should help against the run. They could potentially have a top five defense.

Without a quarterback this team is going nowhere though. That’s just how it works in the NFL. They don’t have anyone on their roster that’s close to passable at QB.

2015 Projected Record: 6-10
