The Cleveland Browns were established in 1946 by former owner Arthur B "Mickey" McBride. Paul Brown was named vice president of the Browns many years before he would go on to establish the Cincinnati Bengals. The Cleveland Browns name was taken from Paul Brown who was a popular sports figure in Ohio.
Brown wasn't just involved in professional sports he was a coach of the Ohio State Buckeyes and gained a lot of notoriety in that position. The team was almost named the Cleveland Panthers but a business man claimed that he owned the rights to that name and didn't want it to be used for the football franchise. The name Brown Bombers was also another title that was being considered and it was a reference to former boxing legend Joe Louis' nickname.
The team originally played in the AAFC All-American Football Conference from 1946 to 1949. They joined the NFL in 1950. Legendary fullback Jim Brown played for the Browns during the late 50s all the way up to the middle part of the 1960s and this is considered one of the golden eras in the history of the team. Another memorable era for the Cleveland Browns was during the late 70s and early 80s when they were known as the Kardiac Kids. They earned this nickname during this time period for playing close football games that where their opponents and spectators were really nervous about who would win the match.
Red Right 88 was a passing play that was supposed to have been executed in the last few seconds of a playoff game against the Oakland Raiders in 1981. The play wasn't executed properly and the Cleveland Browns lost the game. Many people in Cleveland consider this particular play a part of the many curses that haunt the Browns ability to play in a Super Bowl game. Throughout the years the Browns appeared in the playoffs 28 times and they had a total of 13 divisional championship games. The Browns currently use the Cleveland Browns stadium as their home arena and they used the Cleveland Municipal Stadium in the past.
