Browns may have the best defense in the NFL, get real

Rookies say the darndest things and Cleveland Browns linebacker Barkevious Mingo might want to slow his roll.

According to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Mingo believes the Browns have the pieces in place to be among the league’s best.

“If everything is going well, I think this defense could be the best in the league,” Mingo said.

Hate to burst your bubble, but he should not be taken serious.

Last season the Cleveland Browns defense finished tied 19th in rushing yards allowed (118.6) and 25th in passing yards allowed (245.2), nothing even close to one of the top defenses in the league.

While the addition of defensive coordinator Ray Horton is a positive step there is still much work needed before this kind of absurd talk.

Seems like it’s just a case of another rookie making a rookie mistake.

  1. Er…. OK then GB. If you say so. I mean, who can argue with such an in-depth rebuttal?. Journalism at it’s finest, clearly.
    Mingo may have been a little too enthusiastic in his assessment of the Browns defense, but at least he actually said something.
    In writing this below par offering, you have barely made the article worth looking at GB, never mind reading.
    If you are going to consider a serious career in journalism, then you really must do better than this in future.
    You say Mingo made a rookie mistake. So did you. Next time, write something that explains your argument, and actually gives the reader the impression you know what you are talking about.
    The Browns defense will be much better this season than last, you can bank on it. I hope you make the same improvement.

    1. Glad to hear the Rookie has some spunk. What’s he suppose to say “We have a crappy defense and the new guys they brought in on the defense are terrible?” I think the Browns defense as well as the whole young team is on the upswing and barring any major injuries I think they are going to surprise a lot of teams this year!! GO Browns!!

    2. Good Comment. Totally agree. Although I doubt they will be the best this year, I thought the writer would back up his argument a little more than stating their rdefensive rankings from last year.
