LBS-The Browns may be 0-3, but their record isn’t getting Terrelle Pryor down.
Pryor still has confidence in his team and even said on Tuesday that he feels Cleveland can win the rest of their games.
“We’re so close to getting over that hump,” Pryor said, via Cleveland.com. “Once we get over that hump, I think we’re going to have a lot of success, even this year. We’ve got a chance to be real good and I don’t doubt anything. I think we can win all the rest of the games. It depends on our mindset. It depends on how we look at it. It’s just one week at a time.”
And here I was thinking that Drew Brees' optimism was insufferable. Just over here rolling my eyes when the Saints quarterback was talking about the team "eventually" coming together like the season isn't 16 games long and an 0-3 record isn't an absolute death sentence. His undying belief in a fatally flawed team might be delusional, but at least he's got the track record and clout to make such statements without getting fitted for a straight jacket.
Can you imagine being a long time Browns player that's been repeatedly beaten down by perils of playing in Cleveland, and having to listen to some dude who's had one good game in his career talk about how great your shitty team is? Waltzing around the locker room telling every person with a microphone that you're not going to lose for the rest of the season when you've started 3 separate losing quarterbacks in 3 games. I'm all for not quitting on your team before October even begins, but I'm also a big proponent for living in reality. No one knows the reality of inevitable failure quite like long tenured Browns players.
Terrelle Pryor's glass isn't even half full, it's basically brimming with false confidence. I just have to imagine that someone in his locker room is bound to slap it out of his hand if he keeps waxing poetic about a crappy situation like it's going to result in a Super Bowl appearance. The overly negative dude that thinks everything is doom-and-gloom is never well received in the locker room, but neither is the overly positive guy that thinks everything is sunshine and rainbows. Check a forecast one time for me Terrelle, because the sun has never come out in Cleveland 13 weeks in a row and there's literally not a single reason to believe it's going to start now.
