Per Tom Reed of Cleveland.com, Browns coach Mike Pettine is looking to do everything he can to reverse two decades of tough times for the Cleveland Browns franchise --
“If you’re mired in a culture of losing, you’ve got to fight your way out of it,” Pettine said.
“Football is a tough sport for tough people. When you are trying to change a losing culture, mental toughness is as important as physical toughness.”
The Cleveland Browns will need every bit of "fight" they can to change perceptions of a team and an ownership group that has been bashed in the national media for years for perceived dysfunction and disorganization.
However, despite rumors that the Cleveland Browns pursued a trade for San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh this offseason, Mike Pettine is well aware that the onus is upon him to turn the Browns into a winner sooner rather than later.
