On Monday, Browns head coach Rob Chudzinski spoke to the media about the team’s opening game against the Dolphins.
In context, he was being asked about the players’ mentality given the history of losing opening day games and the seasons that seemed to slip away following them.
“This is a new time and a new team,” said Chudzinski of his 0-1 record. Anything else is just noise out there.”
For fans of the team, the “noise” he refers to are thoughts about the team being the same old Browns. A win in week two against the Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens would go a long way towards quieting that noise.
Baltimore lost in Denver on Thursday night 49-27. Peyton Manning shredded the Ravens’ secondary for seven touchdowns and 462 yards passing.
