Welcome to SB Nation FanPulse — a survey of fans across the NFL http://www.thebrownsfootballauthentic.com/joe-schobert-jersey-authentic , powered by SurveyMonkey. Each week, we send 32 polls to 100+ plugged in fans from each team. Browns fans, sign up HERE to join FanPulse.The Week 6 polls are in, so let’s look at the results to see how optimistic Browns fans are getting!How confident are you in the direction of the team? Last week: 83 percent confidenceThis week, 96% of fans voted for their confidence in the direction of the Browns, a 13% increase from last week. Cleveland has now bounced exactly from 83% to 96% from Weeks 3 to 4, and now from Weeks 5 to 6, to correspond with the team’s wins and losses.The 96% confidence mark is the highest in the AFC North. If you recall, the Ravens were at a perfect 100% last week. All it took was one loss to the Browns for that confidence to plummet to 42%! The Bengals are at 87% confidence, while the Steelers are at 36% confidence.Will the Browns make the playoffs?In a new question this week, fans were asked if they thought the Browns would make the playoffs. Some may look at 43% of fans saying “yes” as being way too optimistic, but I actually see it as quite reserved. The 96% confidence from early shows that fans really like the overall direction the team is headed, but aren’t convinced that will lead to an immediate playoff spot in 2018.Will the Browns win or lose in Week 5?Odds: Chargers are 1.5-point favoritesDawgs By Nature FanPulse: Browns by 5Bolts from the Blue FanPulse: Chargers by 6Each fanbase is confidence in their respective team’s chances of winning this week.Who is the best team in the NFL?Between the Rams and the Chiefs Youth Myles Garrett Jersey , fans across all SB Nation sites gave the honor to the Rams of being the best team in the NFL. That was my selection too — but it would be a heck of a game to see if they squared off against each other. Former Cardinals coach Bruce Arians continues to talk about a job for which there鈥檚 no indication anyone wants to talk to him. But Arians knows what he鈥檚 doing, because if he says the right thing at the right time to the right audience, the right person could decide he鈥檚 the right man for the job.Arians, who for years refused to play political games or otherwise promote himself for open positions, has opted to subtly launch a media-based effort to build support for the Browns鈥?head-coaching job. It started innocently enough, with a seemingly spontaneous blurt that he鈥檇 return to the game for only one job 鈥?the Browns job. It continued over the weekend with quotes on the record to the NFL’s in-house media outlet regarding his interest in the job.And he said he’s ultimately interested in the job not because of the presence of a young franchise quarterback who could lead a team to the Super Bowl, but because of (wait for it) the fans.“I’ve always loved Cleveland,” Arians told NFL.com. “The fans, shoot, one of the best groups in the league and when I called their game this past year, I got that feeling about them.”When he was asked point blank to attribute his interest to the quality of the roster or the fans, Arians said,聽“Mostly the fans.”It’s a smart move by Arians. Even though the job has been open for several weeks Authentic Terrance Mitchell Jersey , and Arians is available to be approached, he apparently hasn’t heard from G.M. John Dorsey. Indeed, Arians pegged his chances of getting an interview at “one percent” before adding, “We’ll see.”We’ll definitely see, based on whether the fans take to Arians the way Arians has taken to the fans. Because if one homeless guy can influence owner Jimmy Haslam to select Johnny Manziel, imagine what thousands of home-dwelling (and ticket-buying) fans can do, if they get behind the idea of Arians becoming the next head coach.Of course, there’s also a chance that interim coach Gregg Williams wins enough games to get the fans behind him. Regardless, whoever gets the fans has a good chance of getting the gig, and Arians is wisely doing what he can to get in line.
