Terrelle Pryor’s being laughed at for saying that the 0-3 Browns could win the rest of the games on its schedule.
And with good reason. Even if Cleveland had Robert Griffin III or Josh McGown under center, and injured rookie wideout Corey Coleman back on the roster, winning 13 straight is, well, laughable.
“We’re so close to getting over that hump,” Pryor told Cleveland.com earlier this week. “Once we get over that hump, I think we’re going to have a lot of success, even this year … I think we can win all the rest of the games. It depends on our mind set. It depends on how we look at it. It’s just one week at a time.”
The idea unsurprisingly attracted a Twitter wise crack from Pittsburgh Steelers running back DeAngelo Williams, who suggested that Pryor must have meant Ohio State winning out.
Running the table would certainly be more plausible were Pryor still in Columbus. The undefeated Buckeyes still have some Big Ten heavyweights on the slate in Wisconsin, Michigan and Michigan State, but that’s not nearly as tall an order as the upcoming games the Browns have with the Patriots, Giants and Cowboys. Not to mention two a piece against the Steelers and Bengals.
