This is "Clown will always suck" is just a bandwagon steelers fan. It appears you live in akron OHIO. You just like the steelers because they are a winning team and now your pissed because your "hometown" team is going to be better than the stillers. We'll see what you have to say at the end of next season. I don't care what any steelers fan says their team will not be as good as last year. Which by the way was 10-6 who else had a 10-6 record? Okay go had and say who made the playoffs. Go ahead. Sorry we lost a tiebreaker when the titans played a backup team. Good luck steelers you'll need it.

Thankyou for the lesson. My reply was a joke, J-O-K-E, joke. You'll excuse me if I don't spend to much time on a thread worrying about grammatical errors.

Actually, the Browns were named the "Brown Bombers" (after Joe Lewis) when founded in the AAFC. They were NOT named after anyone with a surname of Brown. Pretty bad when a Steeler fan has to point this out. And you call yourselves fans?? Talk about ignorance!

During that time, they also had a wee, little Brownie Elf as a mascot. HAHAHAHA!!! I do not like Steely McBeam, but at least he is not a fairy elf!! Pretty fitting...

I really like what Savage has done the last couple years. I would rather have Brady Quinn, Corey Williams, and Shaun Rogers, than a 1st, 2nd, 3rd round pick in this years draft. I believe those three players will have much more of an impact then the picks would. Also like the Stallworth signing, it upgrades an already pretty good receiving corp. Going to be hard to double team Edwards or Winslow, with Stallworth's speed. Joe Jurvericus makes a real nice 3rd wideout, possession type receiver.
Browns will win the division this year.
fyi,
Rothlesberger signed for 8 years and 102 million!!
rogers and Williams are better than DP's because they can contibute right away. BQ is still a draft pick from last year, but is better in the long run.

That is a vicious rumor. Read the book PB: The autobio of Paul Brown, which disspells that story. In addition there are numerous other sources that you can find by using GOOGLE. You are a fairy misinformed elf.

How the Browns Were Named Just how did the Cleveland Browns get their name? One popular myth is that the team was named after the popular boxing champion, Joe Louis, "The Brown Bomber." The truth, according to several published reports, is this: When owner Arthur McBride brought an AAFC team to Cleveland in 1945, he held a newspaper contest to name the team and offered a $1,000 war bond to the winner. Most of the entries submitted wanted the name Browns, because the extremely popular Paul Brown was the team's head coach. Coach Brown thought it wouldn't be proper to name the team after him, and the entry "Panthers" was selected. A few weeks later, a man approached McBride and said he owned a semi-pro team in the 20's called the Cleveland Panthers and he still owned the rights to the name. McBride could have bought the man off but Brown vetoed the idea. The coach didn't want the new team to be associated with a losing franchise. Instead of holding a new contest, Brown reluctantly agreed to name the team Browns. But, in sticking with his original ideals, Brown suggested publicly that since Louis was "The Brown Bomber", that was how the team got its name. Not a single entry in the contest listed Louis or his nickname as a reason for choosing "Browns."

Soooo...Brown named it after himself, but then denied it publicly?? I think I'd prefer routing for a team named after Joe Louis, as opposed to someone who lies about how the team got the name. Looks like Brown himself started the "vicious rumor".

I may be a fairy elf, but at least I'm not the mascot for the Browns.

I must admit at first I hoped they'd trade DA for some picks, but now I see that it's only because fans find the draft so sexy. A couple previous posters have been right, I'd rather take a few young proven players than draft guys who could be busts 50% of the time or more.

Also, DA probably will improve... I'm very unimpressed by his underneath passes, and sometimes his decision making, but those are all things an extremely young QB can learn to correct.

Go Browns

still wondering why steelers fans bother to the keep up with the browns. one would think they would prefer reading pittsburgh papers and posting on those boards. must be that, they, like their steeler fan brethren everywhere, suffer from terminal ignorance and what is known around the league: steeler fans are the single most obnoxious of any team; intellectual pygmies who somehow irrationally believe they are smarter than a tree stump. one look at the posts from steelers fans in here and its not difficult to ascertain these so called "fans" are astonishingly deluded. is my grammar and spelling correct? lmbo. that english degree i spent 4 years on is really paying off now---lol.

is that why he had a franchise tag??
We franchised him and by doing so received a 2nd and are off the hook with his salary. Another thing; he had some interesting comments about his former team after leaving GB. The way I see it, GB gave him an opportunity by selecting him in the 6th round (this tells me he was no big talent being sought by teams). To have bad attitude and say you were not
happy; I've heard where other players have made similar comments about their former team. This tells me that Corey is looking out for Corey; this is cool, but don't rag the team that gave you an opportunity to make some serious money. I say Mr. Williams will under achieve in Cleveland and glad we got something for him. I still say he's only a good backup and not an every down guy.

O.K. Rusty,(from Indianapolis?), I'll try to enlighten you a bit. The biggest reason that Steeler fans keep up with the Browns is because they are their primary competition for the division. Always keep a close eye on your chief adversary is one way to describe it. Next, the world is becoming a place of open communication with the use of computers puting the world at your fingertips. In a matter of minutes you can read and comment on issues like never bfore. Finally, true fans of the game and sports in general don't just read about their team. They surf the net to get the latest info on every team. One more just for good measure- The Akron paper with the topix comment format makes it open to many to read and comment on. Why the Bengals don't have something simalar surprises me. By the way Rusty, you did not answer my question yet. Who should start this year, DA or BQ?

He wasn't lying you numbskull, he was being gracious. Reporters asked him the question and he kidding around about it. Paul Brown was the days Kneute Rockne. He had coached Massilon to dominance, in the toughest state for high school football, coached Ohio State to a National Championship and coached a dominant Great Lakes Naval Base Team. The team was clearly named after Paul Brown and so too should the the NFL Championship Trophy.

Follow the logic according to your post:

1. The team was named after Paul Brown
2. Paul Brown "...suggested publicly that since Louis was "The Brown Bomber", that was how the team got its name..." - your exact words.
3. Perhaps he was being "gracious", but it still was not the truth according to fact. Ergo - it is a falsehood, a.k.a. a lie - numbskull.

I know he was a great coach. Perhaps in this instance he should have chosen truth. He could have either graciously accepted, or could have decided on a different name for the franchise. I find it ironic that "Panthers" was reminicient of a losing team and he wanted to avoid that, but "Browns" became the same thing - a losing team to date.

The Lombardi trophy is aptly named. It does not need to change.
