Won't argue with that assessment one bit buck. Everyone is on the Hoyer bandwagon right now. I heard Boomer Esiason say Sunday the Browns have found their QB. And while I like what I have seen from Hoyer, I had to laugh at that comment. He really hasn't been tested yet.
The Brown's D will keep them in games. It did last year. But you still have to put points on the board. There were several games last year, close games, where we had the lead in the 4th quarter (though slim) and found ways to let it slip away. I thought it would happen this past Sunday.
Our next five games, before the bye week, are the Bills, Lions, Packers, Chiefs, and Ravens. Of those games, the only ones I see them having a chance of possibly winning (and they are home games) are vs the Bills and Ravens. 2-3 at best, but I say 1-4 is more likely. So that would put us at 3-6.
Of the remaining 7 games, which includes games vs the Bears and Patriots, I see the possibility of 3 more wins... split with the Steelers (who are awful), Jags, and maybe Jets. We won't win our re-match in Cincy IMO.
So that would put us, like you say, at 6-10. 7-9 is a long shot IMO. But 5-11 is attainable. LOL
