It is never good when former Cleveland Browns players take pot shots on Twitter at their former team.
In recent years as we continue to move beyond (and try to forget) the dismal 1-31 era, it does happen less frequently, but it is still a thing that is likely to happen until the Browns win a Super Bowl.
Today’s edition of Browns bashing is courtesy of DeShone Kizer.
Obviously, there are arguments for and against which feats are most impressive in that comparison.
The Tweet In Question
“Unfortunately TB12’s rings ruin all football GOAT discussions, but if there was ever anyone who could create a compelling argument against him it’s DW after he wins a Super Bowl w/ the Browns…”

The Beginning Of Watson’s Great Expectations
Kizer clearly has great expectations for Watson and the Browns in 2022.
It appears that Watson could be suspension-free assuming that his civil cases are not resolved before August as both sides’ attorneys have agreed not to take any cases to trial between August and March.

That means Watson has 17 games to live up to these lofty expectations that are the reason he is the Browns QB1.
The Watson era officially starts on Tuesday with the beginning of the Browns’ offseason workouts.

He will be shaking off the rustiness of not playing in a competitive football game since January 2021.
Kizer is not alone with his big expectations for the 2022 Browns.
However, cautious optimism should be the modus apparatus right now in the offseason; there are a lot of pieces yet to fall in place.
We can revisit this discussion next February if all goes well.
