CLEVELAND — Many fans have their spirits high and are moving past the recent allegations from Cleveland Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson. Watson made his regular season debut as a Brown as QB1 against the Houston Texans on Sunday afternoon, his first game in 700 days.
"Start something good here," said Louie Lopiccolo. "Put the past in the past. Start something good here."
However, Lopiccolo still has Watson's controversy in the back of his mind.
"It'll be a lot to get over," he said. "But I think, you know what? Everybody deserves a chance, a second chance."
Others can tell the difference on the field between Jacoby Brissett and Watson.
"I'm feeling pretty good about it," said Lauren Halloran. "I'm excited to see what he's able to do for the Browns and how much of a difference it is from Brissett."
