History

The Cleveland Browns are a member of the NFL’s American Football Conference. The Browns initially began play in 1946 as a member of the newly formed All America Football Conference (AAFC) and were named after their original head coach Paul Brown. Brown was considered the father of modern football and led the Browns to the AAFC Championship in all four seasons before the league folded in 1949. The Browns then moved to the NFL where they continued to be very successful.  

Between 1950 and 1955, they reached the NFL championship game each year and won the championship on three occasions. In 1957, the Browns drafted fullback Jim Brown, who quickly emerged as a star. Jim Brown led the NFL in rushing in all but one season he played. In 1958, Brown gained 1,527 rushing yards which was almost twice that of his closest competitor and an NFL record at that time.

However, during the 1960’s, the relationship between head coach Paul Brown and fullback Jim Brown became strained. Jim Brown, along with some other players, did not agree with Paul Brown’s disciplinarian tactics and, in 1963, team owner Art Modell terminated Paul Brown from his coaching and general manager positions. The Browns won the NFL championship the following season and qualified for the playoffs three more times during the 1960’s. However, they failed to reach the Super Bowl, which began in 1966.

The Browns fell into mediocrity during much of the 1970’s and early 1980’s. In 1985, the club drafted quarterback Bernie Kosar who lead the franchise to three AFC championship games in the late 1980’s but was unable to get the franchise into the Super Bowl.

By 1995, the team continued to struggle on the field and club owner Art Modell was experiencing financial difficulties. He decided to move the franchise to Baltimore, which was a highly controversial move at the time. Modell was required to leave the Browns name, colors, and heritage in Cleveland and the NFL promised an expansion team to the city by no later than 1999. The Browns did not play between 1996 and 1999 during which time their former home, Cleveland Municipal Stadium, was demolished and Cleveland Browns Stadium was built in its place.

In 1999, the franchise resumed play in the NFL but has struggled on the field ever since. The club lost their first game of the ’99 season 48 to 0 against Pittsburg and ended the season with a 2 to 14 record.  The team has been able to make the post-season only once since re-joining the NFL in 1999.
