Cleveland Browns 2013

Since 1999 the Cleveland Browns have not held up to the expectations of the fans. Some would argue its been nothing but disappointment as far back as 1964. For some of us its been an entire lifetime of heart break and futile hope in an organization that was once the Yankees of football. We have grown up listening to stories of Paul Brown, Otto Graham, and Jim Brown. My stories are the stories of what could have been. I don’t know if we are cursed but I know one thing: we have suffered enough and deserve more.

2013 brings another year of uncertainty and hope. We ponder and question if Jimmy Haslam will change the game in Cleveland. Once again we will see a new coach, general manager and president. Nobody can truly promise the playoffs this year but the promise of a new era of Browns football is certain.

We have waited long enough. There is something brewing in Cleveland. Its a slow creep can be felt from the Muni Lot to Browns Backers Clubs in far off corners of the country. This year I visited Browns Backers across the country and the optimism is apparent despite the disappointing record. Everywhere I have been someone has said, “for the first time in a while the Browns are fun to watch again.”

The pressure is too great not to get it right. In my heart of hearts I believe Haslam senses the necessity to not only build a franchise but to raise the spirit of a city. We still suffer from the hangover of Modell stripping the franchise away from its home. Even though Modell has passed on, the pain he caused will not be subdued until our Browns become a winner.

I do not know what will happen between now and September but we all agree its a crucial period for the Browns. It is time to get it right. It will not be perfect but the blood in my veins tell me it will be better. There will be improvement.

When the day comes. When Browns gear is sold in retail outlets across the nation. When teenagers and entertainers don our gear. When we are the lead story every week on Sports Center. When the band wagoners arrive… take pride. Take pride in knowing you were already there. Waiting and watching. You were there for hard times and I was with you. Stay strong Browns fans, better days are coming. If you are reading this then you are the core of the Browns. You are its heart and no sports fan deserves a winner more than you.
