‘Strictly Business’ for the Browns

#StrictlyBusiness Browns: (From L to R) LB D’Qwell Jackson, OT Joe Thomas, OT Tony Pashos, LB Chris Gocong and LB Scott Fujita model their new look.

This Cleveland team is a serious bunch.

Tired of played-out chest bumps, butt bumps, high fives and head butts, the Browns’ fourth-ranked defense is choosing to celebrate big plays with a gentlemanly handshake.

It’s part of what linebackers Scott Fujita and Chris Gocong call the team’s “strictly business” approach. Oh, and there’s a team-wide facial-hair push, too.

“Mustaches packed for our #StrictlyBusiness trip,” Fujita tweeted Friday, before the 3-3 Browns rolled west to play the 5-1 49ers.

As you can see below, T-shirts have been produced and it’s catching on in the Dawg Pound, with offensive lineman Tony Pashos asking Browns fans to send in their mustache pics via Twitter.

Without question, Cleveland’s young team hasn’t encountered anything like Frank Gore and the 49ers’ offense in 2011. We’ll see how this business trip pans out.
