In Cleveland, hope dies last

Browns punt on the 2013 season after just two games

Starting quarterback Brandon Weeden? Out for third-string quarterback Brian Hoyer. Supposedly it’s because of Weeden’s injury, but that is just the excuse the team was looking for to make a switch that has probably been in the works for a while.

Staring running back Trent Richardson? Shipped to Indianapolis for a No. 1 pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.

Add in all the things the Browns did not do in the off-season: fixing holes at right guard and corner back, among other areas; basically sitting out the 2013 NFL Draft; hoarding cap space for … what exactly? … and Wednesday’s moves and it is clear that Banner has closed the books on this season – with 14 games left on the schedule.

We try to make some sense of all this at The Cleveland Fan.
