Now with Manning probably gone in Week 2, the Browns have four favorable matchups to start the season. It's not out of the realm of possibility for the Browns to play four winless teams in a row. Then it's Oakland, Seattle, and San Fran after the off week. I wouldn't pick any of the Browns' first seven opponents to make the playoffs, not even the Colts.That's what it will take for the Browns to surprise -- the schedule to play as it looks on paper. After that, they need to stay healthy. They appear to be very thin.To be a true contender, they need someone to step up on offense. Still no one to catch the ball. For all the raves Sam Bradford received under Shurmer, well, the Rams only scored 18 more points than the Browns last season. I just don't see the Browns offense being better than last year without the personnel being better.

Though he doesn't even mention the lack of continuity with a new coach/scheme that the Browns face, it does seem as if the Browns fit most of his core attributes for being a sneaky sleeper. Though I'm not as high as some people, I do think Colt McCoy will legitimize himself this year as an NFL QB and I don't think 8-8 or 9-7 is out of the question just because of the schedule.

And remember how the Football Gods paid them back for their idiocy with Welker's 99-yard touchdown on the next play? Well, I ran that version of the fourth-and-goal fade pass in last week's NFL preview, rolling the dice with Baltimore to miss the playoffs and Cleveland to jump in its place. In retrospect, we'll remember that plan as the second-worst idea of the fall, behind The Playboy Club. After the Bengals hung around for three quarters, then ran a trick play for A.J. Green's go-ahead touchdown catch in the fourth, Colt McCoy completed just 3 of 12 passes for 20 yards and a pick in crunch time. What happened? Put it this way: There's a reason Mohamed Massaquoi, Greg Little, Brian Robiskie, Josh Cribbs, Benjamin Watson and Evan Moore didn't get drafted in your fantasy league. You can't make the playoffs in the National Football League if you can't play from behind. SELLING: All 1,000 shares.
