The Browns Are Handed Their 17th Loss After Muffing A Tweet About Saquon Barkley

At this point, you can’t really blame the Cleveland Browns for their perpetual shittiness. There must be a higher power in play here that has a unrelenting grudge on the franchise and its fans. The Browns not only have the worst uniforms in professional sports, but they haven’t sniffed the playoffs in 15 years and haven’t had a winning season in a decade. This year, the Browns secured as many wins as Tim Tebow had sex, becoming just the second team in NFL to finish the season with a goose egg in wins.

Nine-year veteran cornerback Jason McCourty can breathe easy after a punch line of a season:

“I’m just glad this nightmare of a season’s over with,” he said. “Right now, I’m just looking forward to spending time with my wife and kids. That’s the only thing I’m thinking about.”

They say losing is contagious and that was certainly evident when the Cleveland Browns social media team tweeted the below:


The misstep: that is not Saquon Barkley, but freshman safety Jonathan Sutherland. In the Browns’ defense, Sutherland wears the same number as Barkley due to the size of college football rosters and the AP caption for the photo even captioned it as Barkley.

Hey at least the Browns were able to laugh at themselves about the blunder. You gotta have thick skin when you’re the laughing stock of professional sports.

Next year the Browns are righting the ship. Book it.
