    Cheering for the Browns, collecting Browns memorbilia.
  1. How bad can it get ????

    Iam a long time fan of the Browns, starting back in the late 70's. It really sucks when you cheer for a team that used to be a major threat in the AFC. And when the team was taken from Cleveland and was given a new team with all the historic records, players, and colors, I was happy to begin a new era and ready to build new team records etc. But the records this team is collecting in its history is all for the worse. This team tries to get better, and move office personnel around, and coachs come and go. 1st round draft picks turn out to be flops, and this team continues to lose week after week, year after year. Its just not fun being a fan of a team that just cant win. Iam not turning in my fan support to the Browns, but being a fan these days is just depressing.
  2. As a Browns fan, we all love the BROWNS-STEELERS match ups. Over the past 18 yrs since the Browns returned to the NFL, this classic divisional rivalry has been totally one sided. Even though the Steelers have the winning side of our match ups, is this still looked at as a rivalry, or just another match up? Has the classic hatred for eachother still excite this match up each year? As for me, its just another game, because the winning percentage goes to the Steelers, but if the Browns begin winning games each match up then the rivalry will return.
  3. Ghoolie Goes Black

    I don't get too over excited about the start of any season anymore. I just hope that each game is a successful game and a win and the end. As for the QB's, just keep the hopes in a positive mind. I keep my mind also on the past from the 70's & 80's. Just to keep those days fresh and remember how the Browns used to be.
  4. Browns McFarlane / Madden figures - Miles Garrett

    Not to be rude or ignorant, but what does my age have to do with enjoying a sports hobby of collecting sports memorabilia of the Cleveland Browns? Let me ask you a un-related question. On your job, do take a lunch break ? And if so what do you do , eat a lunch, smoke a few cigs, or read a book, etc ?
  5. Iam a long time collector of football figures, and I have all the McFarlane Browns figures, plus I did some home made figures of my own. I did a Brian Sipe, Lyle Alzado, Clay Matthews, Bernie Kosar, Ozzie Newsome, and a Tim Couch. The actual figures I have are, Jim Brown, James Jackson, William Green, Brady Quinn, Payton Hillis, and Johnny Manziel. Iam hoping the next Browns figure will be a Miles Garrett. And if the Miles Garrett figure does or doesn't make it into production, I have BEARS Julius Peppers figure i'll use to make a custom M. Garrett of my own.
  6. Reflecting Back on Head Coaches...

    Those were the good ol days when the BROWNS were a dominating force to deal with. Sam's years with the Kardiac Kids era with Brian Sipe , Greg and Mike Pruitt, Ozzie, and on defense we had Clay Matthews, Lyle Alzado, Etc. Marty's era was even better, rookie Bernie Kosar , Kevin Mack, Ernest Byner, and veteran ozzie, and on defense we had mean and nasty Eddie Johnson, Bob Golic, Mike Johnson, Clay Matthews, Hanford Dixon, and Frank Minnifield who created our now infamous end zone fan club, The DAWG POUND. I wished the Browns would have stayed in Cleveland, there was no telling how many Super Bowls this franchise could have gone to if it was given a chance.
  7. Iam a long time Browns fan, and over the past 15+ yrs, there hasnt been much to be proud of due to the lack of winning games. And I ofter go back in time during the Brian Sipe era and Bernie Kosar era and watch games from when times were much enjoyable. Early 80's known as the Kardiac Kids, then the Dawg Pound was created, and the back to back AFC CHAMPIONSHIPS against the Broncos, 3 games in 4 years were good times. Though they were losses, at least we made it to that far. So having those games to look back on keeps my thoughts positive about the team of Brown and orange. We have the best colors and the best end zone fan section known as THE DAWG POUND. It may not be as the infamous Purple People Eaters, The Doomsday Defense, The Killer B's, The Steel Curtin, but ours is just as unique. Lets hope for a much improved team and bring back the Browns glory days. GO BROWNS.
  8. player equipment / protection

    Iam just wondering how the NFL forces their rules on player protection? Over the years the way the helmets are made have improved to absorb hard hits and contacts to the ground, etc. But at the same time, as these players are much more larger in size, as being muscled, and in shape etc, They are wearing smaller shoulder pads, and less padded equipment such as thigh pads, and knee pads. I understand that the players want to have more mobility for better movement, and less constricting pads in their way, but, wouldn't these pads also help less injurys? Look how the players were covered in pads, from helmet to knees , arms wrapped , elbows, padded, forearms padded, and thighs and knees padded. Today they wear basic uniform pants and little to know pads on the shoulders etc. Why cant the NFL put in place a mandatory rule that certain shoulder pads are to be issued for each team, depending on size of player and the same for other position etc. ?
  9. Browns home game entrance song

    The Browns should have the song THE GAME by Motorhead being played as they run onto the field .
  10. It's time for this team to win.

    The Browns need to have their players leave their ego's, and high fashion appearance at the front gate when they enter the Browns property. Once they set foot on the Browns grounds, they are all the same, they are players and they all need each other to make this team a winner. Put all the street jive, and flashy jewelry at home. Its time this franchise start putting their foot down and start being a meaningful force in the NFL, and not the same old door mat to keep getting stepped on. This means all coaches and players come to WORK, and earn a paycheck that you have been selected to work for this historic team. Lets not keep having this team in the history books as constant losers year after year. And the only way we get back to the mean and nasty playing days is if these players are taught that "you can be replaced". All I know is if I had the chance to be the owner I would have this team in check and work as if they were in a military mind set. But that's just my opinion. Lets get those glory days of winning back.
  11. Is Brock a keeper?

    Its been a revolving door with the Browns and QB's since their return in 1999. If you look at the list of who have been a starter since 1999, its very embarrassing. And now this team has gone to another QB and Brock Osweiler could be a keeper for a positive way. Is Kessler going to survive a full season, will Brock be a back up? I only hope that both QB's can bring wins every game they play in.
  12. How about something like, THE BROWN DESTROYERS !!
  13. Iam a long time Browns fan, going back to the late 70's. There has been many good seasons, and the best years were during the late 80's going to the AFC Championship game 3 times in 4 years, and they were all against the Denver Broncos. Each one of those losses were crushing because we were at the brink of reaching the Super Bowl. But we never made it. Then the 90's began, and that's when things began to really sink low. We had a future great coach in our hands and the ownership didn't know it. Coach Bill Belicheck was ours and the wins just didn't happen for us. Then the big news that the beloved Browns were no longer going to reside in Cleveland. The ownership was packing up and moving to Baltimore. How low can it get for Browns fans at this point.? Fortunetly, the NFL made an agreement that the Browns will return with a new stadium, and a brand new team. All historical records, team colors and name will return as well. Well, its was high hopes for all Browns fans at that point. Then the new season began, a rookie QB, Tim Couch, was expected to bring wins and future records , but sadly those never happened. And this team hasn't had a true winning season since the team returned. One season back in 2002, we made it to the playoffs, but since then, theres been only heart ache year after year. Head coaches came through and left as quick as the seasons changed. Qb's, cant even think about the tragedy of that position. Too many to even remember. If there is an NFL record for starting QB's for a team , we own it. But as a Browns fan, me along with thousands of fellow Browns fan keep having high hopes that maybe just maybe we can have a season worth bragging about. Well, that was not even close to reality. The drafting of hot shot QB Johnny Manzeil was exciting until it went way out of control with his ego and off the field life style. So that was just one more bad story in Browns historic history. Then 2016, new attitude of better times ahead, and then the big let down. We went to having the worse record in team history, and the worse in the NFL. Winning just one game that came by luck. There's not much to bragg about the Browns, being talked bad and horrorible by national sports reporters and the jokes were no fun to hear. But as a Browns fan, we look forward to a new season just ahead, with Myles Garret leading the defense with his destructive playing style. And iam hoping that this defense will be mean and nasty, and put the Dawg Pound back in biting mode. To sum it all up, being a Browns has its true fans backing them through tough times and there is no tougher times than what this team has dealt with. But those days are going away. Winning seasons start now. Look out NFL, theres a new dawg in the league and the team is ready to bite.
  14. Clay Matthews, Doug Dieken H.O.F.

    I have a question on how many fellow Browns fans feel that Clay Matthews & Doug Dieken should be in the H.O.F. Clay holds Browns team records at his LB position for years of service, and I feel his NFL years of service at his LB position should make him a candidate. As for Doug Dieken, I feel he should be in as well. I look at other OT players that are in, and one specifically ponders my thoughts of how or why. Iam thinking of Cardinals, Dan Dierdorf. The Cardinals had no better records as a team than what the Browns were doing diuring the same era. Doug played almost the same exact years as Dan Dierdorf. Whats your opinion?
  15. Hey fellow Browns, lets give a great big fan shout out to the Greatest of all time, the one and only JIM BROWN.
