Five Things Paul Brown Was Not – Reliving Yesteryear

paul_brown-yesteryear-compressor

You know some things to be true. That they may technically only be your opinions is just noise. You’re right, and when others disregard or disbelieve you, a certain amount of frustration builds.

Don’t Believe in the Cleveland Browns

Brian Hoyer Cleveland Browns

I blamed CBS. Well, mostly. I couldn’t solely blame the multi-billion dollar corporation, one-stop center for television programming for the elderly, and purveyor of such classic sitcoms as Everybody Loves Raymond, Two and a Half Men, and The Big Bang Theory.1 I couldn’t even blame Steve Beuerlein. It was more the fault of the universal

Josh Gordon doesn’t need to be a savior for the Browns

Scott Sargen/WFNY

Nobody knows exactly what Josh Gordon is going to do for the Cleveland Browns when he finally takes to the field.
