2012 Year in Review: The Cleveland Browns

In celebration of the year ending, I present to you, "2012 in Review: The Cleveland Browns." Please go through the photo gallery above, and make sure you hover over the pictures. I have put custom descriptions for each picture's caption.

If you don't feel like going through the whole list, listed below is the draft I came up with when conceiving this gallery. From the draft to collecting the pictures and writing the captions, this probably took me 5-6 hours of work, so please share your comments below on some of your favorite moments of the year, or if you feel I left any moments out.
