KENT, Ohio — How are you feeling after that Monday Night Football meltdown as the Cleveland Browns lost 31-3 to the San Francisco 49ers?
"Well that certainly could’ve gone better," our own Mike Polk Jr. said as the Browns reached their third loss of the season. "No reason to fear. No reason to doubt. Everything is still OK, Cleveland. Relax. We’re going to have these growing pains."
And he's not the only person with that feeling.
Polk ran into UFC heavyweight champ Stipe Miocic in Kent after watching the loss unfold, and the fighter had a simple message for frustrated Browns fans.
"We’re good. We’re fine. We’re going to be fine," Miocic confidently declared with a smile. "They’re going to figure it out. Listen, they’re a brand new team. They have a lot going on, a new coach. It’s a lot to figure out, but they’re doing well."
We have faith.
"If he ever starts showing negativity, that’s when we’re really in trouble, Cleveland," Polk joked.
Up next for the Browns is a 1 p.m. battle with the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday, Oct. 13 at FirstEnergy Stadium in Cleveland.
