Some facts about the Browns in my lifetime

I know this post has nothing to do with teaching, but I am a Browns fan and I wanted to post these thoughts some where.  I have been a Browns fan my whole life, but after looking at these states there hasn't been a ton of success.  I just keep waiting patiently, but I am getting tired of waiting.   I think that the bottom thank you to Brian Hoyer does show what I value in a person.  Determination, grit, and a strong work ethic.  So loosely we can attribute that part to the education blog.  Just trying to get some thoughts out of my head. 

The Browns stats on the playoffs in my life time:
1.       7 times total

2.       5 of those came before I was 6.

3.       I really can only remember 2 of them.

4.       It’s been about 13 years since the last one.

5.       One of my best memories of being a Cleveland fan is dressing up like Bernie Kosar when I was pretty small.  That was probably about 25 years ago. 

6.       I still wear his number on the jersey that has my last name on it because he was the best Browns QB in my lifetime.  ( I Stopped buying new jersey’s because they would go out of style after a season)

7.       Why do I keep doing this?  I guess it is because I love Cleveland and keep hoping that one day the Browns will have a season that will finally make all the naysayers just be quiet for a while.  Or at least stop asking this question: “Why on Earth would you root for the Browns?  They stink!” 

8.       Thank you Brian Hoyer for winning 7 games in 1 season.  If we go back to 1995, Hoyer won more games in 1 season than the quarterbacks of 13 seasons.  The Browns have won 7 games or more three times since 1995.  Now we have 4.  If you look at the last 2 years out of the 11 wins the Browns had 10 of them came from Hoyer’s starts. 

9.       Thank you Hoyer for giving us something to root for.  No one thought you could and most people wanted you to fail so they could see Money Signs Manziel.  I was a fan because of what you represented about Cleveland.  Grit.  Determination.  Studying your craft until your moment came.  Then doing your best.  Too bad no one really got behind you.
