I would be the first one to admit that being a Cleveland Browns fan is very tough. I get pretty tired of hearing whining from the Chicago Cubs fans about not winning a championship for almost a century. The Browns have never won a Super Bowl. Heck, the Browns have never even gotten to the Super Bowl. In fact, of all the old-school NFL teams, only the Browns and Lions have never made it that far, though it stands to reason that the improving Lions are going to make Read more »
The Cleveland Browns have not been performing that well in recent seasons. However, there was a time when they were one of the best teams in the National Football League. During their long history, the Cleveland Browns have had an impressive list of coaches. The Browns best coach in recent years was Marty Schottenheimer. He led the Browns to three division titles, but he failed to reach the Super Bowl. He left the Browns and coached the Kansas City Chiefs for a decade.

Bobby Mitchell is one of the greatest all-purpose players in the history of the NFL. He could do everything the Browns asked him to do and more. When the team needed a big play, it was Mitchell’s number they called. He could take a handoff the entire distance of the field for a touchdown every time he touched the ball. Browns fans are familiar with Joshua Cribbs, but Bobby Mitchell was a better version of Cribbs. He could return kicks for touchdowns as well, and he was good at catching passes. Mitchell was the Read more »
Otto Graham was the starting quarterback for the Cleveland Browns from 1946-1955. He led them to 10 straight division or league championships under the AAFC and then under the NFL when the Browns joined that league in 1950. Graham led his team to four AAFC and three NFL championships.
Graham was originally drafted in 1944 by the Detroit Lions of the National Football League, but the 2nd World War intervened. Upon his return, he was signed by the Cleveland Browns of the AAFC. Graham would go on to be awarded with the AAFC’s Most Valuable Read more »
The question of whether anyone can stop Peyton Hillis this season rests solely on a single aspect of football – can he continue to remain healthy for the entire season? So far in 2011 Hillis has had some minor health issues (strep throat) unrelated to play on the field that have caused him to miss a game, but other than that Hillis continues to perform as usual albeit in a weakened condition. As Hillis regains his strength he should be able to mimic or better his performance of 2010. Thus far this season Hillis is at Read more »
Whenever the thought of rating the Browns best tight ends comes to mind, one name comes to the forefront rather quickly – Ozzie Newsome, and for good reason. In a Hall of Fame career that spanned from 1978 to 1990 Newsome was a three-time Pro Bowler and the centerpiece of the Browns offense. In the history of the Cleveland Browns franchise there is no other tight end that comes close to Newsome’s career numbers of 662 receptions, 7,980 yards or 47 touchdown receptions.
Another player that deserves mention in rating the Browns best tight ends is Milt Morin who played for Cleveland from 1966 to 1975. A Read more »

Cleveland Stadium was home to the Browns from 1946 to 1995. Built by Lake Erie It was called “The mistake by the lake.” But Cleveland Stadium had a charm to it that today’s parks don’t match.
It was not the greatest venue for a sporting event, but perfect for football. The field was grass and dirt. The games were played outdoors in the rain and snow. It was famous for the wind that affected the outcome of many games.
Who can forget the ‘Dawg Pound’ of rowdy Read more »
The Cleveland Browns and The Pittsburgh Steelers have a long and storied rivalry. It is one of the longest and fiercest rivalries in the NFL and it still continues to this day. The Fans of the Cleveland Browns hate the Steelers for many reason and here are five of the most important reason why they hate them.
