NFL Preseason (finally) Finished

The Browns ended their preseason winless with an 0 and 4 record. Repeat after me three times - Exhibition games DON'T MATTER! There is some truth to this statement. The only other time the Browns didn't win a single preseason game (1972) they made the playoffs. In recent years, the Indianapolis Colts ignored the results of preseason games with no lasting effect. Okay that's the sunny side to this story.

Here is the truth. They didn't just lose the pre-season games. No, they looked sloppy and undisciplined while losing. They suffered various minor and major injuries while losing.

A win over the Dallas Cowboys in the season opener would cause all that to be forgotten. However, right now pessimism reigns.

You think the pre season was hard on the Browns? I still can't fin my teeth.

Bill, I could be wrong but I believe it was 1972
