Browns fans have seen a plethora of atmospheres in Berea over the last decade. Every coach and front office do things a little different.
With a new owner and new front office regime, changes aren't limited to the practice field.
Grantland's Chuck Klosterman revealed in feature piece that the facility now boasts a "brand new cafeteria," the one aspect of the organization "everyone insists has been truly reinvented."
"For breakfast, you used to just get a greasy breakfast sandwich," he quoted punter Spencer Lanning. "It made you feel worse. Now we have all this great cereal."
Akron's own Klosterman concurred: "The food is borderline delicious. On the day of the draft, they serve prime rib for lunch and crab legs for dinner. It seems curious that the concept of nutrition had never occurred to the Browns until 2013."
Tight end Jordan Cameron even mentioned in an interview on ClevelandBrowns.com, "We’ve got this cafeteria with this new food, so it’s really good to see the changes and see them open-minded about stuff that really benefits the players."
But he didn't stop there. Cameron said there is a whole new energy.
"You can feel it with the players and the coaching staff, and the trainers, and the management. You can definitely feel they want to win," he said. "You can feel they’re competitive, and they’re doing anything they can to give us an advantage or an edge on our opponents.”
New wide receiver Davone Bess said the players are really buying into Coach Chud and his system, according to CBS Cleveland.
Linebacker D'Qwell Jackson, who is on his fourth regime in eight years, agreed.
"Guys are excited," he said. "They’re competing, and that’s what you want to get out of this time of year," according to ClevelandBrowns.com.
This team, these fans, desperately need a total culture change in Cleveland. Tracking the evidence of that will be important to those who are tired of hearing it and want to finally actually see it.
