2. Johnny Manziel had 2 wins as a starter, amazingly enough. Bet you forgot that?

6. That would be Arthur Bertram Modell, who, acting as his own GM, traded Jim Kanicki and Ron Johnson to the Giants for Homer Jones. But what was worse was trading future Hall of Famer Paul Warfield to the Dolphins for the right to draft Mike Phipps in the 1970 draft. The idea was Bill Nelson did not have the arm to hit deep threat Warfield, so we needed the strong-armed Phipps as the new QB. Only Warfield wasn’t there anymore.
7. Terry and Wayne Kirby; Leroy and Pat Kelly; Mike and Karl “Pongo” Pagel; and Ron and Alex Johnson. This was actually a trivia question on an ad several years ago, except that they only asked for three sets of brothers. Thus of us who are true Browns nuts could actually name four.
8. False, it was just the division playoff in January 1981. It was a tough playoff loss, but not an automatic ride to the Super Bowl. The Browns would then have had to then play San Diego and then the Philadelphia Eagles. It’s not like those were going to be easy wins. For this writer, the 1972 loss to the Dolphins hurt more because Paul Warfield was on the wrong side, yet the Browns almost won anyway versus the undefeated Dolphins.
9. Josh Gordon, Jordan Cameron, T. J. Ward, Joe Haden, Joe Thomas, Alex Mack. There was some talent on the team in those days.
10. Kosar (Cowboys), Byner (Washington as a player, and Ravens as a coach), and Pruitt (Raiders).
