It’s easy to crap on the Cleveland Browns. Their lack of success on the gridiron has made them a punching bag and synonymous with ineptitude.
In recent years, when a team is an absolute disaster, it’s become commonplace to call the franchise a dumpster fire.
Well, today, there is literally a dumpster fire outside of the Cleveland Browns stadium.
After starting the season 0-4, they’re now rushing to put out a second dumpster fire in the “Mistake By The Lake.”

The Browns cruelly gave their fanbase hope after going 4-0 in the preseason. Many believed they’d had a successful draft and were finally on course for a successful rebuild. Then their first overall selection Myles Garrett went down with an injury, effectively setting the tone for the rest of the season.
But not everything stinks in Brown Town.
If you can manage to get past the smell of burning rubbish, the team has competed in every game they’ve played. Perhaps they’re a young team that needs to learn how to win, but the Browns appear to have plenty of talent on their roster. T
hree point losses to the Steelers and Ravens suggest they’re as close to being mediocre as ever.
That would be a huge step up for them…
