It seems like everyone-and I mean EVERYONE-has them pegged as a near lock to make the playoffs & even compete for the AFC crown.
And yes, looking at their roster, they got talent all over the place: Mayfield, Chubb, Hunt, a certain someone who used to play WR for the Giants, Landry, Njoku, Garrett, Richardson, Schobert, Ward, etc.
On paper, that's a damn good roster. But I see how this team unravels easily: a rookie HC + a team with a lot of guys who think they should be the number one option getting the rock. They lose a couple of games & the bitching begins publicly & it snowballs. And their schedule before their Week 7 bye isn't exactly a cupcake schedule: TN, @ NYJ, Rams, @ Ravens, @ SF, Seattle.
I have nothing against Cleveland & would like to see them do well if nothing else that I hate Pittsburgh & Big Ben, but I think people would be wise to, as Shurmur says, slow their roll when it comes to anointing them as the next big thing.
