How does a fanbase respond to a 1-31 stretch, including an 0-16 season? Those who are truly passionate about their team stick with them, knowing that better times will come soon. This makes the Browns fanbase one of the best in the NFL. Browns fans have always stuck with their team, through good times and through bad. Even during a difficult two-year stretch for the team, the passion of Browns fans never waned. The Dawg Pound at FirstEnergy Stadium always has the same rowdy, intense energy, win or lose. The team’s difficult stretch, however, appears to be over. It looks likely that Browns fans are soon to be rewarded for their patience with a young roster that may well become a perennial contender.
A longtime problem of a revolving door at quarterback now seems to be solved, as the selection of charismatic former Heisman Trophy winner Baker Mayfield with the first pick of the 2018 NFL Draft should have the Browns solidified at the position for a long time. The roster also features other young stars like defensive end Myles Garrett, running back Nick Chubb, and cornerback Denzel Ward. With a well-stocked roster and a retooled coaching staff, the Browns look ready to begin their ascent to glory.
