The Browns Fan

 

I am brand new to this site, and this is my first Blog, but I felt compelled to write how i feel about the Cleveland Browns.  I have been a Browns fan my whole life.  My mother moved from Illinois to Ohio when she was just out of high school.  She was a Packer fan but she wanted to be a local fan and took the Browns under her wing.  I was born in 1980 and being a Browns fan was not that bad growing up.  They were winning the Central Division, making the playoffs and things were alright.  I even laughed during the 2007 Draft when they showed a picture of Brady Quinn in the Bernie Jersey.  I had almost the same exact picture growing up.

 

I am a fan through and through, I will never give up cheering for the Browns, but I can’t stand what the front office is doing the team.  When the Browns hired Mangini all I heard was how he was going to get the Browns back to History.  When I think about the Browns history, I think or Paul Brown and Otto Graham winning 7 championships in 10 years (and the 3 they didn’t win they were still in the championship game).  I think about Jim Brown beating the Baltimore Colts, Bernie leading the team to 3 AFC Championship games.  So when Mangini says he wants to return the team to glory, I am all for that.  My problem is that the moves he is making is not helping the team.

 

I understand that he is rebuilding and it takes time.  Next year will be better… I guess.  But to me there has to be someone that you rebuild a team around.  He has shipped away the decent players to other teams (Jets) and benched Brady Quinn.  To me, if you say you are rebuilding the team and you choose a Quarterback, that is who you are going to build the team around.  Give the kid a chance to grow with the team.

 

It is hard to be a Browns fan today, but I just have to stick it out.  I will utter the words that have become synonymous with Cleveland sports, “Well, there is always next year!”
