There are two types of Cleveland fans when it comes to Watson. One section hated the decision to sign the women-abusing quarterback because they can’t get behind that. Another sizable group doesn’t care about that as long as they win. But right now, Watson is infuriating both sides and that’s bad news for an already bad team.
The more mistakes he makes on the field, the more the fans will turn against him. This will increase the pressure on the franchise and the player because it was extremely controversial to sign him. Meanwhile, it provides more ammunition for opposition fanbases when Cleveland is on the road (via The Comeback).
