Hi, I'm Matt Williamson with yard barker and talk about the Browns.
It's easy to say that the Browns won the off season and then kind of smirk and call him the same old Brown's.
I mean, this is a franchise that hasn't won their division since 1989.
I get that and is a former Brown scout and someone that grew up in Pittsburgh and now works closely with the Steelers.
I totally get that.
But this offseason really wasn't just collecting talent, like in previous years, but instead building properly for this new coaching staff.
But this isn't his staff, and such teams could really be behind the eight ball this year with all that's going on.
Plus, CFC North looks really strong right now.
The offense is loaded with high end skill position talent, though, and I feel I fully expect Baker Mayfield to be far more comfortable going forward under Kevin Stefanski.
Clearly, he wasn't last year.
Cleveland did a terrific job of upgrading their tight end, an offensive tackle situation which really plays well for Mayfield insta fans.
They're gonna use a lot of double tight end sets, the Brown should run the ball really well with what I think is the best pair of backs in football in Nick Chubb and Kareem hunts and allow for favorable situations.
For Mayfield, a lot of play action the Browns play of Brown's played a very difficult schedule last year, including just a brutal group of opposing defense that might've been the toughest slate of defense is in the entire league of all last year, and this get this year scheduled outside division looks far more favorable.
The Browns also sacrificed 269 more penalty yards and last year, then they benefited from like that's bound to come back to the mean and coaching could help in that regard as well.
But there might finally be a winning plan in place in Cleveland.
Or are these just the same old Brown's? Thanks so much.
I am Matt Williamson with Yard Barker.
