I’d say the chatter doesn’t matter. The expectations for us within the locker room last year were higher than what we accomplished,” Mayfield said.
“Outside the locker room, people threw us in the trash before the season. They didn’t expect much out of us just because, the year before that, [the] Browns were 0-16. So, you know, you can only go up from there. And I think now we need to have the same mentality. It stays within that locker room.
“You’ve got to believe in it and take it one week at a time. Because I wouldn’t say that everybody wants to beat us. I think in the media and everything that comes with the hype around our team right now, people want to see us lose, just because the hype is so real. But we’ve got to go out there and take it one week at a time. We’re trying to win every week.”
“It went from having excitement over Bud Light coolers being opened [when the Browns ended their losing streak] to now people waiting to see us lose so they can say, ‘Oh, they got too hyped up,’” Mayfield said. “That’s why you’ve got to have an even-keel mindset when it comes to that stuff.”
Not sure people want to see the Browns lose, that’s what we’re used to.
It would be a nice change of pace from a fan perspective to see them win for a change.
