For a 2-7 team, the Cleveland Browns have an extraordinary number of bright spots and upsides.
This season really hasn't been that bad, despite its close calls and crushing moments. Many fans are enjoying the games again. Watching a bunch of young guys try, and sometimes fail, is actually rather encouraging. The rest will come with experience.
