Cleveland Browns: The 5 Biggest Positives of the 2011-12 Season

It's difficult to have too many nice things to say about a team that finishes a season 4-12.

At least the Browns didn't go 3-13?

Even in Cleveland, where "positive thoughts" aren't really our thing, that sounds completely absurd. 

Sad but true; by the numbers, we should all be hiding under a rock somewhere and refusing to admit where we're from or that our city even fields a football team at all. 

But lucky for us, the numbers don't tell the whole story; it wasn't all bad. 

Oh sure, realistically, most of it was. Nobody finishes 4-12 and at the bottom of their division because they're just so much better than they look. 

But there were absolutely some positives, and since we're so used to trading in doom and despair, it's time we took a look at a few of them. 

Following are five positives that Cleveland Browns fans can take away from the 2011-12 season. Who knows? Maybe the Browns really will finally get 'em next year.
