On February 2, 1981, the Associated Press reports of Cleveland Browns quarterback and NFL MVP Brian Sipe throwing the only touchdown recorded by the AFC during that very season’s Pro Bowl. Unfortunately for Sipe, playing in the annual recognition game a mere one month after the infamous Red Right 88 game, he lost a fumble and threw two interceptions. He would go on to complete 10-of-15 passes for 142 yards. Cleveland’s Sam Rutigliano was the AFC’s head coach.

Grossi had been the leading advocate on the Hall’s selection committee for the righteous cause of keeping Modell out, so the line was that the Art Modell induction ceremony that had heretofore...
Veteran NFL quarterback Donovan McNabb has been in the news and some around the league feel that his next suitor could be the Cleveland Browns.
WKNR 850AM mid-morning radio host Tony Rizzo tweeted live from Indianapolis that three separate sources have linked the former Philadelphia Eagle quarterback to three of his former superiors in general manager Tom Heckert, current Browns...
Residents of Cleveland may be surprised by the unseasonably warm weather that has settled over the city in recent days, as well as the mild winter as a whole. While meteorologists and scientists scramble to articulate the exact scientific reasons for this beautiful weather, many Cleveland Browns fans may be inclined to offer an alternative explanation: the storm clouds that hung...
