Perception: The Browns simply don't have enough talent to compete and win a lot of games.
The Browns have talent; the problem is, they are the youngest team in the NFL and underdeveloped.
They are starting a rookie quarterback, a rookie runner, a rookie right tackle and a rookie wide receiver.
When you look at some of the Browns losses, they were very competitive against very good teams, but their inexperience ultimately cost them games against more experienced, superior opponents. It is also worth noting that they have been playing without their best defender in Joe Hayden, who missed four games due to a suspension.
Of course, it all comes down to how quickly Brandon Weeden can develop with his young weapons, but on paper, there is enough talent to win more games than they are "supposed" to.
