I'm high on the Browns this year. I'm not saying they're a Super Bowl contender, but I do think they'll win a lot more games then many people think.
A comparison I like to make is this. The Bengals of 2008 were pretty bad, they started 1-11-1. Then, an outburst by a running back that wasn't with the team at the start of the year (Cedric Benson) led them to three straight wins to close out the season. They go on to make the playoffs in 2009 with Cedric having a career year.
The Browns in 2009 were pretty bad. They started 1-11. But, after an outburst by a running back that was unknown to many (Jerome Harrison), they go on to win their last four games.
I'm not trying to say the Browns will win 11 games or there as good as the 2010 Bengals...but who knows?
I think Harrison will continue to be very good and the Browns will surprise.
