Cleveland Browns 2011 Record:  4-12 PPG For:  13.6 (30th) PPG Against:  19.2 (5th) 2012 Cap Number:  $103,789,162 Draft Position:  #4 Overall Pick Just how bad were things in 2011? The Browns played the Colts, Dolphins, Titans, Raiders, Seahawks, Rams, Jaguars, and Cardinals…..and still lost 12 games. Even in those four wins, the Browns needed a miraculous drive against Miami and a phantom holding call that brought back Seattle’s game winning punt return. All in all, the Browns season was an utter disaster. And to think, there was actually a bit of promise brought in from the end of 2010. Heading into last season, it looked like Cleveland had finally found answers at QB (Colt McCoy) and RB (Peyton Hillis), and the schedule set up perfectly for a strong campaign. That sentiment quickly subsided however, as the Browns couldn’t even find their way out of the huddle for a key defensive play against Cincinnati – IN THE VERY FIRST GAME OF THE YEAR! And now, as is their custom, Cleveland finds itself stuck in the same rebuilding cycle that has perpetuated the franchise since their reincarnation. Will this year be the year that Mike Holmgren finally delivers some real hope, or will it be yet another disappointment? It is, after all, Cleveland…don’t get your hopes up.
