    Saquon Barkley will be out of New York after next season, tough being a fan of any New York teams. ๐Ÿคฃ

    • Bearboy193

      +DuttTxpe_ Nope not happening

    • Militantreturns

      Keep dreaming

    • Gutslinger

      Didn’t Saquon like Bleacher Report’s post on Instagram. The post that had the video of the dude yelling, “I’m gonna get you out!. You don’t belong in there!” at a cat locked inside a store, and had the caption of “Odell to Barkley after leaving the Giants.”

    • Bearboy193

      +Gutslinger Probably lol

  2. Daniel Reid

    Unbelievable turnaround to be even having this conversation. Props to the Browns for once ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™Œ

    • Sniper Town

      That my cittyy

    • Geoff Thompson

      It wasn’t that long ago people were talking about the Browns not winning in over a year when folks in Cleveland had the beer fridges locked until they win a game.

    • Soungjong Lim

      Giants made one wildcard game with OBJ. That’s it.

    • Browns fan since March 12, 2019


    • rk 4391

      Patriots | Browns

      No one else in the AFC.

  3. Stxner Kenny

    No but it makes them AFC north champs, Stephen A salty the Steelers about to get swept by the browns ๐Ÿ˜‚

    • Charlie Harper

      +Surya p not 1 team in that division wins more than 9 games…. They’re all mediocre

    • Surya p

      +Charlie Harper browns, ravens, and Steelers can all make the playoffs …..if u have 3 teams in contention for the playoffs it’s definitely not the worst

    • Charlie Harper

      +Surya p none of those teams compete for a playoff spot outside the division title…

      AFC South and West both better. All NFC Divisions are better.

    • Charlie Harper

      +Surya p

      Ravens. 9-7
      Pitt 8-8
      Browns 7-9
      Bengals 4-12

    • Jeremy Burkhart itโ€™s not one of the hardest. Ravens won the division with a 10-6 record. Thatโ€™s fucking garbage. The Chargers, wild card team, had 2 more wins than the AFC North Division Winner. Thatโ€™s just sad for the AFC North

  4. LA Clippers

    Remember when Stephen A. Smith said the Browns will never be better than his Steelers in 5 years? ๐Ÿคฃ

    • Timothy Martin

      +Chris Robinson used to

    • Shawn Smith

      Timothy Martin 8 ๐Ÿ‘€where ๐Ÿคฅ

    • Shawn Smith

      Timothy Martin Cleveland huh only for that city thanks LeBron

    • Tharealcheeser

      LA Clippers stick to basketball chump

    • KaiTsar

      hold your horses boys remember how the Eagles “Dream Team” worked out a few years back everyone was saying the same things about them that they are saying about the browns now and they went 4-12 don’t get trigger happy yet.

  5. Trey Bens

    SAS you labeled Dwayne Haskins a runner

    Nobody cares about your football labels

    • Snatcher Claus

      SAS doesn’t know a damn thing about football.

    • Banquet Meal

      Browns make one trade and all the bandwagons come out. You better hope and pray you win it all this year because all you’ve done is set yourself up for cap hell the next 3 years.

    • Francisco Davis

      +Mel L wow lmao he is an organic portal for sure

    • iMAJESTiC

      Just assumed that because he’s black lol

  6. D. McBride J.D

    Coming from Baltimore Ravens fan… hard to believe but Browns are AFC North Champs .

    But AFC still has come through Chiefs/Patriots

  7. kiko connie

    Stephen a hairline built like the top of a stop sign ๐Ÿ›‘

    • Finest and brehia


    • P4T21CK K1NG

      Jalen Rose’s hairline is so much worse. It’s clearly drawn with sharpie.

    • Damian Lopez

      It’s the same on each side….top bottom diagonally ๐Ÿคฆ

    • Action Jackson

      kiko connie hilarious

  8. Tarantula Guy

    Aaron Rodgers needs to request a trade to the Browns.

    • Mike Jones

      Nah, Giants

    • The left upright at soldier field

      As a Bears fan, I would do whatever it takes to get that guy out of Green Bay

    • Nicholas Provenzano

      +Mrberry11 Gaming imagine, if mayfield went down, Fitzpatrick could still hold the ship for like 4 days

    • Militantreturns

      For what they aint going nowhere

    • hunter dude

      He can come be the water boy lol and wipe the sweat of baker

  9. Kenny Harris

    Calm down ESPN! Always having to jump to conclusions!

  10. Iann Hines

    0-16 to Baker, Kareem Hunt, Nick Chubb, Landry and now Odell LOL that is some crazy stuff.

    • Sacklife Sak

      Throw Nick out of there

    • ETT Media

      +808bboarder nah, he was the best deep ball passer in the NFL last year. And if he started all the games last year, he throws over 30 TDs as a rookie.

    • On paper all they need is a back up cb, a safety, and some d line help. They’re d line is set but they need some rotational pieces

  11. JerichoFPS

    Cleveland Browns are the new America’s Team.

    Everyone is rooting for them to do well regardless if that’s their team or not. lmao after sucking for so long , they definitely deserve it.


    Best recieving and running core in the league

    • Inferno

      +Chosenxeno Lol browns receivers are way better than eagles dude..

    • Bradley Sad Falcons Fan And Alabama Fan

      Inferno 1.Atlanta 2.Vikings 3.Browns

    • Chosenxeno

      +Inferno You say that but in 2018 the year we won the Super Bowl(I can’t find this years yet) Alshon, Agholor and Ertz(Top 3 TE competing with a Healthy Gronk and Kelce) were THIRD as a Unit for production. Now we are replacing Agholor with with Jackson(not really replacing him he’s basically Desean jr.) That year only the Vikes and Pittsburgh(Who had the REAL best receiver in the league) were ahead of us. This was just the season. Not the post season. So you can go ahead and scoff but it’s quite possible that the Eagles have the top Rec. Corps. I will agree that it’s impossible for us to be number 1 overall if you can name a better Rec. Corps in the NFC than what we have now:)

    • Chosenxeno

      +Thomas Wheeler I will make you a deal. Tell me who has a better Rec. Corps in the NFC than the Eagles and I’ll give up my argument that they can be considered number 1.

  13. Isaiah Santana

    If the Browns had a kicker this past season they wouldโ€™ve beaten the Steelers and Saints putting them into the playoffs.

    • Surya p

      lmao every team can play this what if game

    • Surya p

      +Mrberry11 Gaming u can also say if lamar doesn’t make a ridiculously unlucky fumble, the ravens go up by 28, and are u going to forget the td they called back in the third quarter for a horrible holding call? It goes both ways. Browns were the lesser team

    • Surya p

      +Matt Greaves lamar had a td called back on a phantom hold. Nice to see everyone with selective memory

    • Matt Greaves

      Surya p Baltimore still scored 3 that drive, u acting like they lost a whole 7 points. So with those two blown calls done right the score would end up being 31-30, Browns win. So go ahead, accuse me of selective memory smh

    • Frankie Cruz

      Not gonna lie Lamar a great Running back oh wait! ๐Ÿคฃ

  14. John Dorsey for president 2020๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ change America around like he did the Browns

  15. Skyrimosity

    Iโ€™m not necessarily calling them contenders yet but itโ€™s clear they have the roster to earn their way into the conversation this year

    • Dewayne Montgomery

      They definitely going to the playoffs SB not a chance not with Freddie Kitchens especially when you going against Andy Reid and the greatest coach ever Bill Belichick

  16. Mark Malafarina

    Coming from Hue Jackson, Kitchens going to look like Vince Lombardi ๐Ÿ™‚

  17. Anthony Pena

    Molly is always talking over Max and Steven A

  18. Trawn Barrington

    Like if the Clevland Browns are going to the playoffs this year

    • John Nolan

      Trawn Barrington do you feel good now that you have validation from strangers, your confidence grow a bit? ๐Ÿ˜€ they could win but your a sad desperate fool for asking for likes

    • chad galapagos

      Trawn Barrington nah

    • Timothy Martin

      +zan zy you’re high on crack

    • Sandy Stevens

      They should at least get a wild card spot at the least

  19. Kp Parris

    The steelers have lost their best players in one off season thatโ€™s ridiculous ๐Ÿ˜ญ

    • Same with gaints

    • Ethan B

      +Truee ๐Ÿ™

    • Todd Harris

      Conner had a season( for the same period of time played )that was better than #26 & the Browns couldn’t stop him, at all. JuJu had more catches than #84, in his 1st year as a starter & he crushed the Browns. The Steelers are the class of the North, until further notice..

  20. johnny Rook

    Time for the Giants to get rid of Eli,Shurmer and GETTLEMAN
