Over that past two offseasons, a lot has changed in regards to the Cleveland Browns which makes these 10 cruel Tweets no longer relevant
Remember when the Cleveland Browns were a joke?
If you’re a bandwagon fan, the answer is NOPE.
But for the rest of us, there’s been some pretty grim years since about, oh, 1973-ish.

You can’t even count the mid to late eighties when the Browns played decently but were John Elway’s playoff beyatch.
Believe it or not, newbie Browns fans, before John Dorsey, Freddie Kitchens, Baker Mayfield, Jarvis Landry, Odell Beckham Jr. and company, the Cleveland Browns were the butt of many an NFL joke.
Bullied like a bespectacled 98-pounder, the old Browns couldn’t draft well or win many games or inspire confidence in their fans so a cornucopia of cruel jokes and then Tweets began to circulate because lord knows Cleveland wasn’t already feeling bad enough about itself without them.
But now, Dorsey be praised, the Browns are predicted by many to win the AFC North and whispers of their name can be heard whenever there’s talk of Super Bowl LIV.
So once and for all, let’s put these horribly unkind (and no longer relevant) Browns tweets to rest.
Here are Ten Cruel Browns Tweets that the Dorsey / Kitchens / Baker / OBJ Browns have now made irrelevant.
There are plenty more, sure, but let’s kill these first.
10. Why is Daddy Sad on Sundays?
Okay, as funny as a sad Browns coloring book is as an idea, the fact that it sold well on Amazon and at Target should cause any true Browns fan to be embarrassed.
Browns daddies will no longer be sad on Sunday, kids, because their team now has Myles Garrett and Olivier Vernon hunting quarterbacks while Larry Ogunjobi and Sheldon Richardson are burying running backs, and that’s just on D.
9. Browns: Rebuilding since 1964
Between 1964 and 1969, the Cleveland Browns went to four of six NFL Championships and only won one of them, but that’s not at all embarrassing compared to only going to the playoffs twice since 1990.
Tear up that sign, sad Browns fan, because your team is in year four of a five-year rebuild and for the first time in their franchise history and thanks to Dorsey, the rebuild in Cleveland is actually working.
8. Famous Browns Multi-QB Jersey
Twenty-eight quarterbacks have started for the Browns since the 1999 draft.
That (and the mockery) all ends with two beautiful words: Baker Mayfield.
7. “I Cry At Night” Jersey
As respectable as it is for this man to be vulnerable enough to admit his pain, no football fan should ever be driven to tears by his team’s incompetence, yet there it is, printed on an expensive Browns jersey.
It’s ironic because when it became public that Dorsey had somehow snagged Odell Beckham Jr. from the New York Giants, many a tear was shed by elated Browns fans.
6. When your team only loses by 3 points this time.
The biggest moans and head slaps in Cleveland have come from the loyal Browns season ticket holders, who for years of painful losing found enough grit in their soul to sit in ice-cold lake effect weather through all that bad game plan execution and the resulting losses.
Now, thanks to a solid run game plus Mayfield to Beckham or Landry or Rashard Higgins or Antonio Callaway or Damion Ratley or Duke Johnson or David Njoku, the ‘dumb 3 point loss’ officially takes a back seat at FirstEnergy.
5. Worthless Browns Tickets
For many NFL seasons, you couldn’t give Browns tickets away, even to folks who love being angry and freezing cold at the same time.
Now those same tickets are really worth something – leave them in my kids’ Trick-or-Treat bag, pal, I dare you.
4. Dad, what’s the Super Bowl? I don’t know, we’re Browns Fans…
Remember when the Cleveland Browns couldn’t even win a game all season and even cartoon characters named Cleveland Brown mocked them?
Now that there are only two other AFC teams favored more than the Browns to make it to the Super Bowl (Patriots and Chiefs), Browns fans need to stop pretending like we have no chance at a Lombardi Trophy.
3. Man we suck
Man, we certainly did – why else would the Browns think Johnny football would solve their problems?
No more using Browns jerseys to make fun of the team – now fans will use them as Dorsey intends: for bragging rights.
2. Female Browns Fans Expect No Rings
Well, that hurts, but only because it was true for so long.
Ladies, things are different now, and the Browns are getting good enough to be in some Super Bowl conversations, so get your ring fingers ready, some big jewelry might just be coming Cleveland’s way.
1. Being A Browns Fan Stopped Being Fun
Well, being a Browns fan is now officially a blast, finally, and it’s just going to keep getting more and more fun in Cleveland.
Bring on the new crop of Browns tweets – chances are they’ll be a lot kinder than the previous lot.
Winning football games changes all that, and Browns fans can’t wait.
