Holmgren expects significant improvement in Cleveland this year

The Browns went from 5-11 in Mike Holmgren’s first season as president to 4-12 in his second, but Holmgren isn’t getting discouraged.

Instead, Holmgren said in an interview on ESPN 850 WKNR in Cleveland, he sees reason for optimism and believes the Browns will be a lot better in 2012.

“I expect us to take a pretty good jump this year. I would not be particularly happy if we had the same record or close to it,” Holmgren said, via SportsRadioInterviews.com. “I believe in this group and I think we’re on track, I really do. I think if you look at last season as an example, the record was what it was, but we had if you remember say the snaps from center, kicked field goals, or PAT’s, if we had made three of those instead of missed three of those we would’ve won seven or eight games or something like that. Now you’re 5-11, 8-8, then you take the next step and boom in the fourth year you are where you should be. That’s what I’m thinking. I would hope and I would be very disappointed if we didn’t take a pretty good jump this year.”

It’s true that the Browns had several close losses and could point to a few plays here and there in those games that could have made the difference between 4-12 and 8-8. Then again, the Browns’ four wins were close enough that they were only a half dozen or so plays away from 0-16.

That's almost as funny as Flacco expecting top 5 QB money!

And I expect that one day my children will listen to me.

I'm not a betting man, but I'd guess that there are better odds of all 3 of my kids listening to me on the same day than there are the browns doing anything on the positive of a .500 season. OH wait, .500 is an improvement for the browns!

And I fully expect to lose 100 lbs. by sitting on my couch and eating Cheetos chased with milkshakes.

Even this has better odds than the browns having a better season!

One more for the good guys Ginger!

Maybe Buddha looses 50 lbs and the Brownies go 9-6. IT COULD HAPPEN! And truck 2 of your 3 listen to you. In a perfect world it could happen.

I like your optimism SD, but I think it might be misplaced in the browns going 9-6

HAHA! That's where you're wrong! I just lost roughly 175 lbs. this week alone by taking Truck off my Christmas card list.

So you're still 385 lbs. And I'm sure given enough down time you'll find a way to put the 175 back on. Sort of like the browns finding a way to screw up a good start to the season.

And now you're off my Arbor Day card list.
