Pleasant and Unpleasant Surprises at Midway Point

Cleveland (2-7)

Pleasant: In July, using a second-round supplemental draft pick on Baylor’s Josh Gordon seemed like a desperate reach to augment a shoddy wide receiver corps. It wasn’t. Although he’s had some costly drops, Gordon is the big-play threat that Cleveland’s offense has needed. Gordon has four touchdowns and is averaging 21.9 yards on his 19 receptions.

Unpleasant: The future of the organization is uncertain once again with Jimmy Haslam buying the team from owner Randy Lerner in October. The Browns are on their fifth head coach without a playoff victory since returning to the league in 1999. That number will jump to six if Pat Shurmur isn’t retained after just two seasons in Cleveland. - Alex Marvez (AP Photo/Rick Osentoski)
