If you are reading this, you are a Cleveland Browns fan that is optimistic about the team’s chances at reaching a Super Bowl. We’re getting close to now 60 years since the Browns won a football championship. In 1964, Cleveland beat the Baltimore Colts for the NFL title. The following year, the NFL decided to create the Super Bowl and the Browns have been the unluckiest team in NFL history.
You would’ve thought that considering the success that the Browns had had from the late 1940s all the way to 1964, winning eight titles along the way, that winning a Super Bowl or two in the past 59 years would have been a realistic happening. However, the football Gods have it in for our beloved Browns. It really is unbelievable that Cleveland has not been to one or two Super Bowls yet. There are only a couple of other franchises, like the Detroit Lions, that haven’t reached the big game, but Cleveland fans have earned a Super Bowl or at least an appearance in one considering the fandom we give to this organization.
I used to think certainly Cleveland would make it to the Super Bowl in my lifetime, but now as I’m in my mid-50s, I begin to wonder if that’s going to be a reality and for so many of us fans that have cheered on the Browns in the past this becomes a real concern. However, here are five reasons why this current team has a good opportunity at reaching the Super Bowl in the very near future.
