Don't Take It Personally

I know that the Browns looked bad last night, even though I was unable to actually see the game.

But don’t take it personally, okay? This was preseason, and it was wise (and customary) not to play many starters. No sense risking injuries when most coaches have a pretty good idea of who will be where when the games begin to "count".

And yes the Browns finished 1-3 in the exhibition season. Well, I am here to tell you that they looked like world-beaters in some preseasons past and fell flat on their faces when the bell rang on the regular season.

And hey, the Lions, Eagles and Bears were not exactly chopped liver.

So…disappointment? Maybe I can see that. But don’t take it personally until the games start to count.
