Jeremy Fowler, ESPN Cleveland Browns Beat Reporter says optimistically, the Browns can win 6 or 7 games because its a top 5 Offensive Line and a Top 10 Defense. He takes a look at the plans of Ray Farmer acquiring all the talent in the trenches and that if it doesn’t translate into wins, its back to the drawing board and starting all over. He explains how the Browns strategy was designed assuming you would have an elite and dynamic WR in Josh Gordon and that without him, the offensive plans have fallen through a little bit.
Jeremy says Josh McCown is here not to win games, but to not lose games, and that the margin for error in that sort of game plan is incredibly small. He looks at the continual development of Johnny Manziel, what has and hasn’t translated to the NFL, and which keys are the biggest towards him possibly competing for the starting job with Josh McCown. He feels that Duke Johnson is the most reliable running back and possibly the best play-maker on the team
