Last Season: 5-11, 2-4 division Playoffs: Missed the postseason Stat Leaders: QB Brandon Weeden (3,385 YDS, 14 TDS, 17 INTS); RB Trent Richardson (950 YDS, 11 TDS); WR Josh Gordon (805 YDS, 5 TDS); LB D¿Qwell Jackson (118 TACKLES, 3.5 SACKS) The Buzz: The Cleveland Browns are a bit of a mess, but franchise leaders hope the massive renovation project starts producing wins sooner rather than later. Rob Chudzinski takes over as the team's new head coach. Norv Turner, who has always been a better offensive coordinator than head coach, will lead the Cleveland offense, while Ray Horton is the new defensive coordinator. Brandon Weeden struggled as the starting quarterback last season, tossing more interceptions than touchdown passes. Cleveland could easily cycle through multiple starters at the position this season, which is never a good sign for a team. The team needs a lot of help from its running backs, but Trent Richardson leads a group that has been beset by injuries and fallen short of expectations. The team could see some immediate improvement on defense after adding Barkevious Mingo, Leon McFadden and Paul Kruger. Luck Factor: We wish Browns fans luck patiently waiting for their team¿s next playoff appearance.
