Article Summary:

As Super Bowl LVI is inching closer, Cleveland Browns fans are once again disappointed. The Cincinnati Bengals only exist because former Browns owner Art Modell ran the Browns Hall of Fame coach Paul Brown out of town to start a new team in the rival American Football League.

You probably are aware that the Cleveland Browns were founded with Brown as its coach in 1946 in the now-defunct All-America Football Conference in 1946, and won every championship in that league’s four-year history. The following year, all three Browns quarterbacks – Bernie Kosar, Gary Danielson, and Mike Pagel – were injured and the Browns narrowly lost in the playoffs with fourth-string Don Strock under center after two weeks of practice.
