As much as I’d love to inundate you, dear reader, with irreverent musings about Le’Veon Bell’s holdout and Nike’s latest—and boldest—branding endeavor, I’ll digress and instead wax poetic about the Cleveland Browns. Fun!
Cleveland finished with a league-worst 1-15 record in 2016, which prompted then first-year head coach Hue Jackson to infamously exclaim: “We are not going 1-15 [in 2017].
No, or I will be swimming in the lake over there somewhere.
That is not happening. I just know me too well. I know me and I know these guys too well. We are not going 1-15 next year, OK? You can write it if you like. Hue Jackson said it. We are not.”
It was hilarious at the time and it’s hilarious in retrospect. You see, the 2017 Cleveland Browns did not finish 1-15; they finished 0-16, a nearly unparalleled feat of stunning ineptitude.
As has become customary in Cleveland, three different quarterbacks fielded snaps for the Browns in 2017, including rookie DeShone Kizer, who started 15 games and committed approximately a thousand turnovers.
None of these quarterbacks are on the roster this season.
Kizer was shipped to Green Bay for Demarious Randall, a functional and surprisingly versatile defensive back who can play cornerback and safety; Cody Kessler was traded to Jacksonville for a draft pick;
Kevin Hogan departed in free agency. In their stead, Cleveland, picking first in the 2018 draft, anointed former Heisman Trophy winner and future all-purpose television star Baker Mayfield the franchise savior and signed Tyrod Taylor, a former Pro Bowler who last season guided the woebegone Buffalo Bills to their first postseason appearance since 1999, as their bridge quarterback.
Should some sort of calamitous happenstance render Mayfield and Taylor unavailable—which, given Cleveland’s recent history, is a virtual certainty—journeyman quarterback Drew Stanton, the No. 3 man in Cleveland, boasts a respectable 11-6 record as a starter.
Speaking of novelties, Cleveland revamped its receiving corps and backfield.
Before the draft, the Browns traded for and immediately signed Jarvis Landry, a three-time Pro Bowler with the Miami Dolphinswhose status as an “elite slot receiver” is almost a backhanded compliment.
Even if Landry doesn’t amass a ton of yards or score a bunch of touchdowns this year, he’ll definitely catch a million balls, enabling Cleveland’s offense to churn out first downs with metronomic regularity.
Landry, as Taylor’s primary security blanket, will also divert opposing defenses’ attention away from fellow reception-hog Duke Johnson — a player who is, in my opinion, one of the best receiving backs in the league — and whatever version of Josh Gordon suits up this season
