The New Millenium
I know what you are thinking....."Why is 1999 on this page??"
I figured that a new start deserves a new page. If you would like to continue
this story with the Baltimore Ravens, then you can go to "www.hell.com".
As you can see, this page isn't complete yet, and it won't be for another 8
years. Let's hope it looks something like the 40's, 50's, or 60's page. Even
an 80's page look-a-like would be something to be proud of. Well, here's the
story so far, let's just dream the rest!

|Summary: The triumphant
return of the Browns to the lakefront brought few bright spots. Tim Couch
didn't look like a 10 year veteran, and the defense looked pretty good
when they didn't have to play 45 minutes in a game. Thankfully, we got
the low point of the season out of the way in a hurry, with a 43-0 shellacking
by the Steelers. We did exact revenge on them, however, by stunning them
16-13 with a 3 pointer as time ran out. The first (new) franchise win
came on aTim Couch desparation Hail Mary pass with no time left on the
clock against the Saints found it's way into the hands of Kevin Johnson,
who happened to be standing in the endzone. A late season thriller with
the 13-3 Colts at the end of the season gave hope to the fans that next
year would bring better things.Photo
||AFC Central Division:
3-13-0 - .188
Summary: This was supposed
to be the year that the Browns were going to contend for a playoff spot,
much like the Jaguar and Panther expansion teams of a few years earlier.
Cleveland got off to a promising 2-1 start, with a beating of Cincinatti
and another last second thriller with the Steelers that the Brownies
emerged victorious from. However, the team lost Eric Rhett and JuJuan
Dawson in the game against the Raiders and began a seven game slide.
I awoke to headlines of "Couch Potato" after a Cleveland Friday
practice, and I learned that Tim Couch's season was over, much like
the Browns. Lame duck Doug Peterson came in to lead the Brownies to
another disappointing season and assured Cleveland of the number 3 overall
draft pick in the 2001 draft. The highlight of the 1-12 finish had to
have been the sandlot style of ball that the Brownies played against
playoff bound Philladelphia. The Browns used 3 different quarterbacks
on the first series (on purpose. Kevin Johnson threw a couple of balls
and Dennis Northcutt ran out of the shotgun). The team got a standing
ovation for that performance, even though it was an 11 point loss. I'm
getting sick of waiting for next year!!Photo
