    The New Lions?

    The New Lions?
    While thinking about how annoying it is to follow a team that - once a season begins - never gives its fans a glimmer of hope, I took a look at the Browns' record over the first 8 games for the past decade.

    It was as ugly as I thought.

    Other than 2002 (when the team was 4-4), and 2007 (5-3), 6 times the Browns have been 3-5, once they were 2-6 and once 1-7.

    A person with a sunny disposition would say that at least Browns fans aren't ever given a false feeling of hope.

    The rest of us would say that they are a team without hope. In other words, they are hopeless.

    My only consolation is that since I live outside of the TV range of northern Ohio, I do not have to watch the rest of the season as it unfolds.

    Rinse and Repeat for 50 years and you have it.

    Oh, don't forget to add 5 HOFs during the period, including the best RB of all time.

    OH, and make sure you actually exist for the entire lifetime of the SuperBowl and never go.

    And also make sure your GM/Pres/Whatever is THE international standard for ineptitude and longevity in the face of bad performance.

    But don't get me wrong, Cleveland has a good start. Now comes the real work. it's time to grind down the hopes of your fans by time and futility.

    Other than Ozzie Newsome and seeing Leroy Kelly when I was 7, before my time.

    Millen is the Gretzky of suck, so his standard will never be reached.

    You were only talking about the last 10 years.

    Go back to Bernie or Kelly or Newsome and you have good performance. No SuperBowls, but how many playoff wins did you have in the last 50 years?
