About the Book
Each autumn Sunday, a new chapter is written in the long and storied history of the Cleveland Browns. Win or lose, with each contest, the mythos of this beloved franchise is extended and enriched in the hearts of the sport’s most loyal fan base.
The team has played nearly one thousand games over the past eight decades, and The Browns Bible colorfully tells the tale of each one. Through individual game stories and box scores, it encapsulates every victory, every defeat, every touchdown in the team’s extensive history, stretching from 1946 to the present day.
The most comprehensive account of the Cleveland Browns ever written, The Browns Bible narrates the legend of this cherished franchise season-by-season, week-by-week as it gradually ingrained itself in the fabric of the city’s culture - starting with its dominance of the All-America Football Conference through the glory years of the 1950s, the Kardiac Kids and Dog Pound eras, and the franchise’s rebirth in the 21st century.
Within these pages you’ll find snapshots of the inherent drama of each contest: accounts of crisp clashes under the bright autumn sun and gridiron wars fought in the bitter cold of winter. The ultimate highs and the heartbreaking lows. Moments quickly forgotten and those remembered forever.
Through these stories, the heroics of the storied players of the past unfold: the achievements of Otto Graham, Lou Groza, Jim Brown, Leroy Kelly, Brian Sipe, Bernie Kosar, and countless others who created and strengthened this team’s legacy through the generations.
From Sunday-afternoon spectacles to Monday-night madness, from the Shamrock Bowl to the Playoff Bowl, The Browns Bible is the definitive reference guide to one of the most significant teams in professional sports.
