Doesn't bother me in the least.

Most of them will never admit it, but from a purely football standpoint, the rise of the Browns DOES worry them.

When you are on top, as their team obviously is, any legitimate challenge causes concern, and the Browns ARE legit, whether some Steeler fans choose to acknowledge it or not !!

They will continue to live in denial right up to the final gun of the next (and possibly both this season) Browns victory over Pittsburgh !!

So go ahead, Whiz and Black lovers !! LIVE IT UP !!

WHILE YOU STILL CAN........

I've been hearing the same rhetoric from Browns fans the past 10+ years. Maybe wait till you win something before you start sqawking?? Just a thought.

If the internet had existed back in the 60s, I wonder what Steeler fans would have had to say ??

"You may win the game, but we'll damn sure make that win as painfull as possible."

It's well known that from 1933-1970ish that the Steelers didn't win many games. That is also known as the era before the "modern era of professional football". Hell, a lot of that era the forward pass was illegal.

The Steelers weren't known for winning, but they were known for a style of football that left the other team bloody and beaten.

This whole thing with you bringing up the 60's reminds me of when Browns fans tell me that the 1970's Super Bowl wins don't count because they are so old...but then bring up the four NFL Championships the Browns won back in 1050, 1954, 1955, and 1964.

Or when Browns fans bring up the AAFC Championships in 1946, 1947, 1948, and 1949 like I give a crap about them. They must not realize that that conference is defunct, the championships are not recognized, and that the Steelers were not even in that league.

To be fair about those AAFC wins, the Browns came into the NFL, and pretty much dominated after that for the next couple of year , thus the point could be made that if they were an NFL team at the time, We could've been champions quite easily.

'course without a certain linebacker from Cleveland who learned under paul brown, We wouldn't be talking about any championships in pittsburgh, now would we? :flap:

True, the Browns did come in and dominate when the AAFC finally merged into the NFL. However, we would never know if those championship teams could defeat the NFL's because the two never played, therefore it's a moot point and just speculation.

And nobody ever said that Paul Brown wasn't instrumental to pro football as a whole or that he wasn't istrumental to Chuck Noll. Paul Brown was an effing genious...but many coaches learned from him, not just Chuck Noll.

To be perfectly fair... the Browns did win the NFL title their first year after moving into the NFL.

Did he learn under Paul Brown as a player and/or assistant coach or did he just expand on Brown's philosphies?

Walsh began his pro coaching career in 1966 as an assistant with the AFL's Oakland Raiders. As a Raider assistant, Walsh was trained in the vertical passing offense of Sid Gillman, favored by Al Davis. Walsh would later modify his own offensive philosophy to favor a predominantly horizontal passing approach.

He then moved to the AFL expansion Cincinnati Bengals in 1968, serving under Paul Brown for seven seasons as one of the architects of the team's offense, built around quarterback Ken Anderson and wide receiver Isaac Curtis.

When Brown retired as head coach following the 1975 season and appointed Bill "Tiger" Johnson as his successor, Walsh resigned and served as an assistant coach for Tommy Prothro with the San Diego Chargers in 1976. In a 2006 interview[4] , Walsh claimed that during his tenure with the Bengals, Brown "worked against my candidacy" to be a head coach anywhere in the league. "All the way through I had opportunities, and I never knew about them," Walsh said. "And then when I left him, he called whoever he thought was necessary to keep me out of the NFL."

Yeesh..The Bungals were even pretty stupid back then.

Oh...and Walsh got his revenge in two Super Bowl wins over the Bungles.

Every NFL opening Sunday the sports bars in NEO are packed to the gills with Browns fans, yelling and talking smack to us Steelers fans about how "This is the year", and how revenge will be theirs. And by every week 6-8 or so, year after year after year, there are only a handful of Browns "athletic supporters" left, and they are subdued and keep to themselves, often preferring the deep dark recessed corner booths of the bar, where they can drink their copious amounts of beer (probably required in order to cling to the thin thread of unraveling sanity watching a team lose year after year after year must inevitably bring about) and quietly commiserate their inevitable annual fate, all while repeating the Northeast Ohio mantra "Maybe next year".

Maybe next year, indeed. I admire the spunk, the "never say quit" attitude of these poor miserable loser bastards, so steeped in the permanent reek of failure and loss that the slightest sign of hope is enough for them to desperately cling to. But, let's be serious here. There's no real reason to expect anything but more of the same this year, and this little extra surge of hope just means the inevitable rocks these false hopes and dreams will be shattered against will be just that much more sharp and jagged and painful for the Browns faithful this year.
