AP Pro32 comments about Browns
NEW YORK (AP) - Comments on the Cleveland Browns by the AP Pro32 panel (ranking in parentheses):
CLEVELAND BROWNS (29)
Chris Berman (ESPN, 28) - Keep finding ways to lose.
Clifton Brown (Sporting News, 25) - You can see this team improving, but coach Pat Shurmur needs wins.
Rich Gannon (CBS Sports/SiriusXM NFL Radio, 28) - This team has lost too many close games, but it's not surprising with so many young players on offense.
Bob Glauber (Newsday, 28) - Browns come close in Dallas, but can't finish off the upset. Woulda shoulda coulda - the three words that have come to symbolize the Browns since their return to Cleveland in 1999.
Rick Gosselin (Dallas Morning News, 29) - The 2-8 Browns led in the fourth quarter of each of their last two games against playoff contenders Baltimore and Dallas and wound up losing both times.
Clark Judge (CBSSports.com, 30) - We interrupt this week's coaches' meeting to ask everyone to log everyone on to Realtor.com.
Ira Kaufman (Tampa Tribune, 28) - Once again, Browns fans turn their attention to the NFL draft.
Pat Kirwan (SiriusXM NFL Radio/CBSSports.com, 29) - There is no quit in this team and there were a few calls in the Dallas game that turned a win into a loss. The young players are really starting to play well.
John Lynch (Fox Sports, 29) - Cleveland battled hard in Dallas.
Alex Marvez (Foxsports.com, 29) - A heartbreaking overtime loss to Dallas guarantees Cleveland its ninth non-winning season in 10 years.
