In the forefront of media personalities talking about the Browns is CBS Sports Network’s Jim Rome.
He has been calling the Cleveland Browns the new “America’s Team” for years.
Rome said the “Browns are coming” in 2021.
After the NFL schedule release, Rome renewed his support for the Browns.
Here are a few highlights from his show.
1. Rome Calls Week 1 Game Against Chiefs The AFC Championship Preview
Jim Rome thinks the NFL was brilliant with the crafting of the 2021 schedule.
Sending the Browns back to Kansas City is the ultimate challenge for a team on the rise.
He calls it the AFC Championship Preview in Week 1.
It pits the revamped Kansas City Chiefs offensive line against the reloaded Cleveland Browns defense.
For those thinking the Browns will shrivel away from the challenge, Rome quotes NBA Coach Monty Williams who said:
“Everything you want is on the other side of hard.”
Regarding the @browns : as the great Monty Williams likes to say, everything you want , is on the other side of hard. And the @Browns and I aren’t looking for any handouts, we’re looking to take part … we’re looking to take over @jimrome #americasteam

The Browns aren’t afraid of hard work or challenges.
2. Holidays Will Be Fun For Browns Fans
Rome talks about how the Browns host the Steelers on Halloween and travel to Lambeau to take on the Packers on Christmas Day.
He says Browns fans are finally getting their due to see their team on high profile games on national holidays.
3. Rome Is Infuriated By The Lack Of Prime Time Games
Jim Rome is not the first to comment that the Browns only have three appearances on Thursday, Sunday, or Monday night football games.
The Browns’ AFC North rivals, the Baltimore Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers, each have five prime time appearances.
In fact two of the three Browns’ prime time appearances are against the Ravens and Steelers; the other is against the Denver Broncos.
Rome also points out that the NFL needs to start flexing the schedule early because according to him, there is not a nationwide demand to see the Chicago Bears yet they have more prime time games.
He also says it is hardly equitable that the Giants have the same amount of prime time games as the Browns, citing that the Giants have not been good in years.
Rome is well aware that he was the first with a national megaphone shouting the praises of the Cleveland Browns.
Jim Rome started this movement in 2018.
He is not bothered by the dissenters and continues to share the message.
Jim Rome has been a faithful supporter of the Browns, and one of the many reasons it would be fun to see them have a Super Bowl run is to see how he would cover it.
