Can the Browns Do Well This Season?

It's no secret that the Browns have been miserable aside from one season and have had one playoff season. Why is this team struggling so much to actually put up a decent season? Below .500 is constantly expected of this team and it hasn't failed to do so. It's pretty sad and pathetic but there is no one answer that's going to magically turn this team around into something special. I think they can really make a run at the playoffs as long as the team is willing to put the time and effort into doing so. I really haven't seen much effort by the players themselves like they want to be out there. My feeling is that the team just doesn't want to be out there playing and would rather be on another team. They are too many injuries on this team. What they need is something either proper training or the players start trying some new work out routines that could actually prevent from getting injuries so quickly. I should also state that if the team is not used to playing together as a team, there's going to be a natural struggle. It can take at least a year or 2 for them to really find a strong and good rhythm. That's the key to any franchise is when the players are used to playing as a team. If there's any ego involved with that franchise thinking about what they can do for themselves and not trying to benefit the Browns, needs to be squashed like a bug. It doesn't help when there's tension and anger on that team playing each other for problems. I know they are in a tough division but still they can put the effort into being very competitive and beat teams within there division. Teams like the Bengals, Steelers, and Ravens have to be beaten for Cleveland to even have a chance at contention for at least a wild card spot. Ownership needs to seriously put the effort into helping this team get better. If the owners don't care, then the team will continue to struggle until someone decides to buy this team. A price would be made and then go from there. I think this team needs to start playing they want to be there and give the city of Cleveland even more hope than they've ever had. It doesn't matter who is the QB of the team as long as he gets the victories. Interesting note, they've yet to make the Super Bowl, hopefully at some point they can get there and win it but that's another story for another day.

According to a lot of sports people on STO, I don't know if you get that channel or not, but they say how we actually have no chance whatsoever even though we have Brady Quinn now. I don't think we're going to get that far yet, it takes time. Just like it took Lebron four years to get the Cavaliers to the Finals.
