What happened next was a decade of ups and downs the likes of which were dramatic enough that it often seemed like a Hollywood script was unfolding before our very eyes. There was a drive, a fumble, even retired quarterback Don Strock made his return straight off of a golf course. Beloved coach, Marty Schottenheimer, left and Bud Carson arrived to take the Browns back to the verge of the Super Bowl in 1990, only to fall short, once again being defeated by the emerging icon, John Elway, wearing number seven for the Denver Broncos.
Bill Belichick would arrive soon after in 1991, a visionary before his time that never quite got it with the Browns, and by the time he departed, cut a hometown hero and was the captain of sinking ship as Modell announced the move on that dreadful November day. One could wonder what would have happened had the Browns not left Cleveland in 1995, but no one can dispute the absolute thrill ride the hometown boy, Bernie Kosar, from Boardman Ohio took us all on for ten glorious years. This is the story of Cleveland Browns, the passionate fans and a decade that truly was the last great era in Cleveland football.
