Browns fans don’t generally want to be negative. They’ve rarely been given opportunity to be positive so far this season, though. Brandon Weeden knows that the record isn’t good enough, but he and the rest of the Browns players seem intent on maintaining a good attitude just the same.

… There’s so much negative vibe outside this locker room. It’s everywhere. In this locker room, my goal and I think the rest of the guys’ goal is to keep the positive vibe in here. It’s good right now. Yeah, we’re all frustrated, we all want to be 3-0, but any time you let all the outside frustrations come into this locker room, it starts breaking guys apart. That’s a recipe for disaster.

It’s good to hear, actually. While you don’t want the guys to be satisfied or cocky in the face of failing to win games to start the year, it’s simultaneously hard to figure it would create an environment conducive to getting off the losing streak if they were getting down inside the locker room.

“Fake it ’til you make it,” and the rest. Just as long as we’re not talking about on-field celebrations involving world-champion sprinters, I’m good. There’s that outside negativity creeping up again.
