Last week: 96 percent confidenceThis week, 80% of fans voted for their confidence in the direction of the Browns, a 16% decline from last week. This is the lowest confidence rating the team has had all season, and it is no surprise that it comes after the only game they weren’t competitive in all year. Cleveland has yet to lose back-to-back games Womens Larry Ogunjobi Jersey , so this week’s road game against the Buccaneers will be a big one with respect to the confidence meter.Believe it or not, the Browns’ 80% confidence mark is still the highest in the AFC North. The Ravens jumped back up to 77% this week, but the Bengals dropped down to 64% confidence, while the Steelers are at 59% confidence.Will the Browns win or lose in Week 7?Odds: Buccaneers are 3-point favoritesDawgs By Nature FanPulse: Browns by 3Bucs Nation FanPulse: Buccaneers by 4Buccaneers fans only have 22% confidence in the team, though, and they just fired their defensive coordinator.Which young QB would you take for the next 10 years?The graphic above shows the voting across all 32 NFL blogs. 55% of fans would take Patrick Mahomes over the other three quarterbacks.

But one area of the game in particular catches his fancy.Johnson, who is entering his fourth season with the Browns Authentic Darren Fells Jersey , is open to the idea of catching the ball on a full-time basis, going so far as to actively lobby head coach Hue Jackson for a position change, as he told cleveland.com:Before anyone gets the idea that Johnson is unhappy with his current role, especially fresh off a contract extension in the offseason, he went on to say that he would only be bummed out if the Browns limited him to simply running the ball.That is not likely to happen, however, given how effective Johnson is in the passing game. A year ago he set a team record for running backs with 74 receptions Authentic Damarious Randall Jersey , surpassing Greg Pruitt’s 65 receptions in 1981. Those 74 receptions were the fourth most for a running back in the NFL, and Johnson’s 693 receiving yards were third best at the position.Johnson has caught 188 passes in his three years with the Browns, placing him at No. 25 on the franchise’s all-time receptions list. Another solid season this fall and Johnson could finish the year solidly in the team’s top 20 list for career receptions.That seems very likely given that the Browns signed running back Carlos Hyde in free agency and selected running back Nick Chubb in the second round of the 2018 NFL Draft. They should see the bulk of the carries this season, limiting the amount of touches Johnson sees in the run game. (Another area where Johnson holds his own as he has averaged 4.2 yards per carry in his career.)No matter what position he is listed at, Johnson adds a valuable, if sometimes overlooked, presence to the passing game. Having him on the field with wide receivers Jarvis Landry and Corey Coleman Womens Denzel Ward Jersey , along with tight end David Njoku, provides an array of problems for opposing defenses, and a reliable target for quarterbacks Tyrod Taylor and Baker Mayfield.
