    Normally ESPN obsesses about East Coast teams, the Cowboys and the Packers but they seem to have strategically set the Browns up to fail by talking about them 12 hours a day. Give it a break ESPN. I don’t need to hear Colin Cowherd and Stephen A Smith talk about Baker Mayfied for 12 hours a day. Finally, some New York Giants broke into the ESPN news sphere by starting Daniel Jones. Never thought I would actually be happy to see ESPN cover the Giants. The act is getting old. ESPN is now a reality TV channel

    It reminds me a lot of a few years ago when Cards were hyped to be a SB favorite coming off the 13-3 season and tanked.

    We never received coverage at any level near this. ESPN talks about the Browns more than all other teams combined

    Easy solution is to stop watching ESPN.

    Uh, Cowherd hasn't been on ESPN in YEARS.

    Who watches ESPN anyways nowadays? It's been a trainwreck ever since it decided to concentrate on being an SJW rather than actually being about sports.

    I just got YouTube TV and it keeps popping up. And you are right: It wasn’t Cowherd, it was Skip Bayless. Good call: I actually couldn’t tell the difference. I haven’t watched ESPN in years

    Bayless is all over the Cowboys....he compared this years team to 92 team. Not even close

    Yup...Fox Sports is an ESPN retirement home.

    A lot of blowhard 'talent' has been plucked from ESPN to Fox.

    ESPN will never be awesome again, bit they have a few young guys/gals that are decent. Unfortunately, though, there's an obvious agenda to have some sort of schtick, emphasizing on the E (Entertainment)...and less on the S (Sports).

    It was awesome when they announced Berman and Jackson back with their SNF show....but it's also (to me) a slap in the face, to only have it available on ESPN+. Those guys deserve better and I'm sure, given a chance, they would find a new audience.

    REgardless of what you think of them, Cowherd and Bayless get ratings.

    Don't like either of those guys but would rather listen to 8 hours of them to one minute of S.A. Smith.

    But at least the Cardinals accomplished more to warrant that hype, while the Browns have been more of the true definition of hype... building a story on unproven potential so far
