ESPN ranks the Browns dead last in off-season power rankings

Browns Power Rankings

You can take these things with a grain of salt or you can choose to figuratively kill them with fire. The Cleveland Browns getting picked dead last in ESPN’s post-draft power rankings is ridiculous. No, it doesn’t matter, but they committed it to their website, so I felt like discussing.

The reason that I find it completely ludicrous and insulting is because Vegas – a place that has to actually put money on the line for their rankings – has the Browns as 75-1 odds of winning the Super Bowl. There are at least six teams below them with bigger payouts currently. The bottom three in order are Minnesota, Jacksonville and Oakland.

But what does Vegas know?

Again, it doesn’t matter other than for debate, but sorry if I think this makes these prognosticators look silly.

    Conspiracy Theory – ESPN is only trying to fuel Manziel’s competitive nature to maximize his vengeance and reap the revenues.

    but Johnny is merely the backup QB.

  • Pat Leonard

    ESPN has already decided that they will not allow that to happen.

    Don’t worry, Mike Bitonio is on his way to Bristol to straighten some things out

    More Cleveland hate – this infuriates me.

    too late, Johnny was arrested this morning for disorderly conduct driving to Berea. He attacked a traffic light when he thought it implied he was yellow.

  • Harv 21

    perfect. Occuring to me that maybe one reason I don’t dig gifs is b/c I have no idea how you found something so comment specific. A jealousy thing.

    Yeah, it sucks that every single time I think about defending the Browns in something like this, I feel like a total homer, but I feel like dead last after the successful off-season we’ve had is a little bit much.

    As long as we keep having drafts like that, ESPN can rank us at the bottom every year. As far as I’m concerned.

  • James Bond

    Offseason power rankings are as useless as mock drafts. Just gives some so-called experts something to write and feel important about.

    “All right people, we got 10 minutes ’till game time, let’s all gather ’round. I’m not much for giving inspirational addresses, but I’d just like to point out that every newspaper in the country has picked us to finish dead last. The local press seems to think that we’d save everyone the time and trouble if we just went out and shot ourselves. Me, I’m for wasting sportswriters’ time. So I figured we ought to hang around for a while and see if we can give ‘em all a nice big shitburger to eat!”
