2. The Expectations
The Challenge: My prediction for this year’s team is 9-7 and that is certainly on the lower end of the spectrum. I’ve heard predictions having this team finish at 13-3. The bottom line is that everyone is expecting the Browns to play well and make the playoffs. It’s a new feeling in these parts compared to how just winning a game last year got us free beer.
The Fix: Win…duh. It doesn’t take a genius to state that fact. Actually, winning cures all. However, more specifically, I would take the first point of this article in absorbing the hype without letting it affect the play on the field in a negative way. This team has a tremendous amount of talent, which is not the issue. It’s the mental aspect. Compartmentalize that and it’s a smooth ride to success.
