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.
