I was surprised Baker said this the other day. IMO, I never picked up on the desire to see the Browns lose. I think a lot of people are adopting them as their second favorite team. I'd rather see them deep in the AFC playoffs as opposed to the fucking Patriots, Steelers, Chiefs, or Ravens. But I guess that isn't saying much.
No...Baker is a very polarizing figure. People either love him or really hate him and want to see him, and this team, crash and burn. The Browns have gotten a TON of hype for a team that's really done nothing but lose since 1999. I think that's why a lot of people are pissed that they are getting all of this media darling love. They won't sneak up on anyone this year, like they did last. Teams will be gunning for them.
