The Browns' preseason begins tonight http://www.yadeos.com/cameron-artispayne-jersey-c-1_37.html against the Saints of New Orleans. Brock Osweiler, the latest name to bounce around the front office spin cycle, will take the helm at QB. You can almost write the rest of the season from there.
But before all of that begins, we'd like to take you on a trip into the past. Before we abandon all rationality and dive into a season of numbing pain, we, as Browns fans, must take a moment to remember from whence we came
Here, after 18 seasons, are the 18 stories that best encapsulate the modern Browns era.
18. Trading Our Opening Day Starting QB After One Game - Charlie Frye or Derek Anderson? Derek Anderson or Charlie Frye? Or maybe Brady Quinn? That was the question throughout training camp, leading up to the 2007 season. Charlie Frye won the job in camp. The hometown kid was tapped to start the opener. The whole town rallied behind him against the Steelers, the old rivals from across the border. Frye played less than one half of that season. He was benched before halftime, the team lost 41-7 and, the next day, the Browns traded him to Seattle. (This one was embarrassing at the time, but this move actually helped, as the Browns went 10-6 this year behind a career season from Derek Anderson.)
17. Draft Day - A movie being made about your hometown team should be exciting. But this fictional film wasn't about playing football, it was about the NFL Draft. And because of how awful they've been as a franchise, the Browns are now so synonymous with the NFL Draft that of course they were the subject of this film, an extremely unrealistic portrayal of what it's like in an NFL war room on the day of the draft. (Cleveland notoriously got the nod after Ohio's film tax credits beat the bottom line on what the studio would have to spend on the original subject, the Buffalo Bills.)
16. Two Bad Endings in 2015 - 2015 was another bad year for the Browns. Go figure. In the grand scheme of things, losses are actually helpful to the organization, always improving their draft position. But these two losses were just so bad that they had to be included.
The first loss was in October to the San Diego Chargers. The Browns moved the ball all the way down the field in a last-minute drive, scored a touchdown and converted for two points to tie the game up. San Diego then drove the ball back http://www.arimtex.com/gary-sanchez-jersey-c-1_35.html down to set up a last-second 39-yard field goal. Kicker Josh Lambo kicked the ball wide right, and it seemed like the Browns would get a chance to win the game in overtime. However, seconds after the miss, it was revealed that cornerback Tramon Williams was offsides. Lambo got another chance, made the field goal, and the Chargers won the game. However, replays clearly showed that Williams actually wasn't offsides; he said that the NFL told the Browns that they made the wrong call, the NFL denied they said anything.
The other loss was to the Ravens on Monday Night Football toward the end of the season. With the clock running down, quarterback Austin Davis scrambled to set up a potentially game-winning 51-yard field goal. Browns rookie kicker Travis Coons had connected on all 18 of his field goals up to that point. With time expiring, Coons attempted kick was blocked, the Ravens Will Hill picked it up, and ran 64 yards for the winning touchdown.
15. The Motorcycle Accident - The Browns had high hopes for tight end Kellen Winslow Jr., drafted with the sixth overall pick in 2004. Winslow broke his leg after two games of his rookie season. Then, after rehabbing his leg injury, he decided to get on a motorcycle a few months before the 2005 season. He got in an accident, tore his ACL, and missed the entire 2005 season. Winslow did have a couple of good Michael Lorenzen Youth Jersey years for the Browns, including an excellent 2007, but his career never reached the level that many had hoped.
