Browns will be “looking clean” on Sunday against the Titans

“If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again,” may as well be the Cleveland Browns’ motto this year. Facing the 2-3 Tennessee Titans on the road this Sunday, the 0-5 Browns will be trying out yet another new uniform look for the regular season.

Announced by a tweet from the team on Thursday, the Orange-and-Brown will be wearing white jerseys, white pants and orange socks for their Week 6 match-up:

If you’ve been following along, you know that I’ve been naming the team’s uniform combinations every week, which has proved to be as challenging as it is to watch this team at times. When I think about this particular look, the orange feet (ok, socks… but bear with me) really stick out—and they make me think of a duck. “Duck Dynasty?” No. “Oh Duck No!?” Maybe. But thinking about the way the Browns have been dodging wins like they’re running backs they can’t catch, I’m going to go with “Duck, Duck, Lose” for the team’s Week 6 uniform look.

I’ve heard a lot of fans and analysts around town say that if the Browns don’t win this week, they likely won’t win all season. Fingers crossed, gang. And hey, orange you just glad they’re not wearing all brown again?

A reminder, as always, of what the Browns have worn—and how they’ve fared—so far this season:

    Why does this team want to dress like Denver?

  • Garry_Owen

    If we want to win, we need to be willing to go full oranger orange.

    Embarrassing that both the Dolphins and Broncos have been willing to orange crush their unis and the Browns haven’t. Gutlessness.

    I believe it should be pronounced “orn-JEE-er” rather than “ORN-jer.” It’s more pleasing to the ear, don’t you think?

  • Garry_Owen

    I like it.

    By decree: It is now “orangier.”

  • NankirPhelge

    Good man! Our next task is to determine if anything rhymes with orangier. I hope not.
