about this item

When the Cleveland Browns selected Bernie Kosar in the 1985 Supplemental draft, few knew just how much that would impact the next decade of Cleveland Browns football. They were coming off of a rough patch, but had a long history of winning. The fans were passionate and ready to support a winner.

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.

Interviews include Brian Brennan, Reggie Langhorne, Tommy Vardell, Leroy Hoard, Matt Stover, Ed Sutter, George Lilja, Felix Wright, Brian Kinchen, Brian Hansen, and Michael Jackson
