The 10 Most Disappointing Moments in Cleveland Browns History

You know where this is going. And it won't end well.

Being a Cleveland Browns fan since 1965 means you are a glutton for punishment and enjoy having your hopes and dreams crushed into ashes.

No Cleveland Browns team has won a championship since 1964. The franchise remains one of only five to never have appeared in a Super Bowl.

(The other four are the Texans, Jaguars, Lions and Saints)

The complete disintegration of the team this past Sunday in Denver brought to mind some spectacular past failures against the Broncos which, in turn, raised more bad memories from the entire franchise history.

Looking back on the history of the Browns, it's frustrating to realize the Dwayne Rudd Helmet Toss, the 49-0 beatdown from the Steelers in 1999 and the entire 2008 season don't even make the Top 10.

Even Jim Brown retiring a few years earlier than he should have doesn't make this list of failures, disappointments and embarrassments.

To be a Cleveland fan in the 21st century is an exercise in patience. It is the sports-fan equivalent of the Bataan Death March.

The Browns currently are undergoing their fourth rebuild since they returned to the league in 1999. That's a lot of bad football. Considering the Browns were the New York Yankees of football until Art Modell purchased them, it should be no surprise no dates prior to 1961 appear on this list.

While it's never fun for a Cleveland fan, enjoy this trip down memory lane.
