The Browns have championships, but they all pre-date the Super Bowl. The Browns have never appeared in a Super Bowl let alone win one. Now, if you place any hope in the opinion of retired pass rushers turned analysts, there might be hope for the Browns. Warren Sapp says the Browns are next.1

“They have a quarterback now, they have a running back — in (Trent) Richardson and (they have Brandon) Weeden — this is what you need to jump-start your franchise,” Sapp said on Wednesday’s episode of NFL Network’s “NFL Total Access”. “There’s no more fumbling on the 1-yard line, there’s no more ‘Drive’ for you to cry over. … It’s the Cleveland Browns. They’ll be next.”

Of course in the 24-hour NFL news cycle that has developed over the years, there’s no shortage of opinions on topics that are fabricated. (And here we are commenting on the fabricated topic, so do with that what you will.) Point being that with so much need for constant opinion, there’s not a lot of weight behind a lot of it. It’s a lot of guessing without any kind of follow up or anyone holding anyone to their opinions.

Still, it is fun to think that maybe the Browns might have finally landed the draft that will erase all the demons of the past.
