|The idea of the Cleveland Browns going from an 0-16 season to Super Bowl champions in one year seems crazy Patric Hornqvist Jersey , but one of their very own believes it's capable of happening.Wide receiver Jarvis Landry, whom the Browns acquired in an offseason trade with the Miami Dolphins, believes his new team will pile up the points. Not only that, but he believes the Browns are capable of winning a championship in 2018."You'll be lucky if we don't score 40 on you," Landry said, per Ben Baskin of Sports Illustrated. "If we get everyone playing to their potential, we can win the Super Bowl this year."The Browns certainly look much better on paper this year. They'll have wide receiver Josh Gordon, hopefully, for an entire season. Throw in Landry and the signing of running back Carlos Hyde Dustin Hopkins Jersey , and the Browns have some big pieces on offense that could make a big difference on any given night.Cleveland also traded for Buffalo Bills quarterback Tyrod Taylor, before drafting Baker Mayfield with the first overall pick. If one of these two players can make the most of the talent around them, the Browns certainly have a chance to surprise. That being said, the Browns do have many mountains to climb before they can think about a championship. The Pittsburgh Steelers have been kings of the AFC North for a decade, and they don't look ready to relinquish the throne.The AFC is loaded with other playoff-hopeful teams, including the Jacksonville Jaguars, New England Patriots, Tennessee Titans, Houston Texas Henry Anderson Jersey , Kansas City Chiefs and Oakland Raiders.Cleveland has the potential to surprise many in 2018, but it may be going too far into believing they can win a Super Bowl. But we've seen crazier things happen, so Browns fans can't give up on the dream. With quarterback Kirk Cousins on his way out the door, Washington traded with the Chiefs for quarterback Alex Smith. And coach Jay Gruden knows that Smith will need to hit the ground sprinting.
鈥淗e has got to get it down by the first game,” Gruden told reporters on Tuesday regarding the question of whether Smith has until the middle of the season to get up to speed on the terminology of the offense. “So I think he is already close to having it down for the most part. Each game plan is going to change with different concepts depending on who we play from time to time. But he needs to get it down and he will get it down. That鈥檚 why we got him here. That鈥檚 why we wanted to get a veteran quarterback here that can adjust to different schemes and alert on the fly.”
Then came the mandate for the team’s new quarterback.
“One thing about Alex, he is the smartest guy I have ever been around, without a doubt, and he is in great shape,” Smith said. “He can move around and he can handle a lot of different things. We are not in here to build the team around him http://www.greenbaypackersteamonline.com/kentrell-brice-jersey , the team is built and he has to lead it like right now. This isn鈥檛 a two- or three-year process. This is a one-year process and we have got to win right away.鈥?/p>
Smith has the skill to do it, but does he have the talent around him? That remains to be seen, and the problem is that, if the team doesn’t win, Gruden (whether he means to or not) is positioning Smith to take the bulk of the blame for it.
Gruden still believes Smith can do it. Because Gruden thinks Smith has the confidence to do it.
鈥淐onfidence is very, very important and presence . . . is important,” Gruden said. “It gives other players confidence, and the whole job a quarterback has is obviously getting the most out of the people around you. That鈥檚 what I think he does as good as anybody. He鈥檒l get the most out of the tight ends. He鈥檒l get the most out of the backs. He鈥檒l get the most out of the receivers and offensive line because they鈥檙e going to want to play for him and they鈥檙e going to feel confident that he鈥檚 going to make something happen in a positive way or at least give it everything he鈥檚 got and take responsibility if something doesn鈥檛 work out. [He’s] just a great leader-type guy and a good person, good player Zach Miller Jersey , that players all seem to react well to and play well with.”
Again, if that doesn’t happen, the blame won’t fall to the subpar players around him or to the people who gathered the players or those who coach them. It’s all on Alex Smith, according to the guy who has far less job security (frankly) than Smith enjoys.
