Trying to take a cue from their city’s winning baseball team, the Browns are looking to score two points this weekend.
“We are going to try and emulate a winning program,” said Browns coach Hue Jackson. “Obviously, we’ve been struggling this season, so we’re going to do our best to take a page out of the Indians’ book and score ourselves two points.”
When Indians GM Terry Francona learned that the Browns were looking to them for guidance, he commented that he was “flattered but also pretty sad for [the Browns].”
“They know two points isn’t a lot in football, right?” said Francona, concerned. “Oh god, maybe they don’t… Someone help them.”
The Browns are adopting this new plan as their attempt to model themselves after the Cleveland Cavaliers doesn’t seem to be working out.
