So last article I said that I would explain what the Browns needed to do to gets some wins this year.
And I can explain it with one word, HARD.

We saw this tag on the shirts in training camp.
And that is exactly what they need to get back to.


Each year we see the same level of expectation in training camp.
Each year is our year, The year we reach the playoffs, the big turnaround.
And each year we are let down.

It’s almost like the players buy into the narrative that this team is “Cursed.”
All hype, then a few bad plays or missed kicks, and that’s it.
The players then start to doubt themselves, and believe that there is no way they can win.
You will hear it in interviews and talking to the players.
They begin to believe that no matter how HARD they play, Its just not enough.

So Mr. Jackson.
Its all on you now, you have the job, you have the talent.
Your job is to change the Culture, Motivate, and finish the cleanse you started.

So, comment below or on twitter @grindstonejohn.
Is Hue’s job on the line this week?
What do you think the Browns need to change?
Will the victory fridge finally open?
Will the beer taste as good this week as it would have last week?

As always,
Stay Classy Cleveland
