Amid this season of depression and despair, the Browns haven’t lost hope. Sadly, there’s still another level of misery for the Browns (0-12), now four losses from joining the 2008 Detroit Lions as the only teams in NFL history to complete a 16-game schedule without a win. This is new territory for Coleman and Cleveland’s 17 other rookies, who in addition to adjusting to life as paid professionals, are getting their first real taste of failure as athletes.
