  • If it weren’t for the Browns, I would say this team is the biggest joke in professional sports.

    Marion, don’t look at it. Shut your eyes, Marion. Don’t look at it, no matter what happens!”

    Even though I realize our longest winning streak is 4, and I know saying this now makes no sense with little evidence to back it up…..BUT….this team still has a “big” streak coming at some point this year. An 8 or 9 game streak is still out there and will happen – I believe that. And if it happens at the right time, under the right circumstances, we could find ourselves right back in it.

    Crazier things have happened in this game.
