Using an arbitrary and made-up methodology of measuring, Bill Barnwell has concluded that the Cleveland Browns might be the fifth fastest team in the NFL. This is the kind of stuff that doesn’t matter at all… until it does. By that, I mean that measuring the Cleveland Browns in any other manner other than wins feels pretty trivial by this point. Still, when others do it, I find it fun to imagine it could be meaningful as we are on the eve of another NFL season.
The Browns placed fifth after Tennessee, Washington, the New York Jets and the Buffalo Bills. The only other AFC North team in the top ten was Baltimore at No. 9 and the Bengals come in at No. 11.
It’s fun to look at, but in the end, speed has translated all that well to winning, it wouldn’t seem. Tennessee won seven games in 2013. Washington won three. The Jets won eight. The Bills won six. The Cleveland Browns (you might remember) won four.
If only we could have some Wonderlic equivalent for coaches, general managers and owners…
