An unexpected close win for the Browns this week against San Diego puts them at 2-6 for the season at the halfway point. I'm sure it's not where the team would have liked to be after eight games, but the Browns have been competitive up to this point.
A catch here, a turnover there, this season may have had a different complexion going into the last half of the 2012 campaign. Playoffs are a distant long shot at 2-6, but this team does still have a lot to play for.
The Browns coaching staff is auditioning, week in and week out, to keep their jobs. Owner Jimmy Haslam has already "retired" Browns president Mike Holmgren, so the remaining front office and coaches will be on a short leash. They must be in a position to win every game from here on out.
This being said, it will be an exciting second half of the season. The slides that follow chronicle how the Browns will fair.
