    They could have hired Clyde the orangutan from those Clint Eastwood movies, and I'd be fine with it as long as it meant Ray Horton was sent packing.

    Overall record since 1999: 88 wins, 200 losses, .306 winning percentage.

    Needless to say, that's the worst in the NFL.

    I normally enjoy your stats. This seems a little obvious. Other than if you had just asked the over/under on 88 I'd have sadly had to think about it

    To go a little deeper, in their 18 seasons, the clowns have averaged the following per season:

    Points Scored: 268.1 (16.75 ppg)
    Points Allowed: 366.9 (22.93 ppg)

    They've been outscored by an average of a TD per game since their return.

    The defenses have been mostly bad, but their inability to field even an average offense has been downright staggering. If you consider 320 points scored (20 ppg) the "Mendoza Line" for NFL offense, in the clowns 18 seasons, they've achieved that TWICE. Two times, TOTAL. They haven't done that since the outlier 2007 season that saw them score 402 points (25.1 ppg). That's nine straight years below the "Mendoza Line". The only other season they reached it was their lone playoff year in 2002, scoring 344 points (21.5 ppg). I consider anything under 17 ppg (272 points scored) to be "anemic." The clowns "offenses" have come in under that ten times.

    Defense has been a problem at times, particularly the past two years, but not nearly on the level of the absolute shit-show this franchise has been offensively.

    The clowns are well known as a QB graveyard. It achieved meme-status years ago. The clowns have managed a total of FOUR 3000 yard passers since they were, ahem, re-born:

    Brian Hoyer, 2014, 3326 yards
    Brandon Weeden, 2012, 3385 yards
    Derek Anderson, 2007, 3787 yards
    Tim Couch, 2001, 3040 yards

    Seven times, they failed to field a QB that reached 2000 yards, three times nobody could eclipse 1500 yards.

    In eighteen years, just one Browns QB has eclipsed the 20 TD Pass barrier, Derek Anderson with 29 in 2007. ONE in EIGHTEEN years.

    In 18 years, they've sent one QB to the Pro-Bowl, Derek Anderson in 2007. We all know what happened after that.

    QB play hasn't been the only issue. 1000 yard rushers seem to be a dime-a-dozen these days. This giggle-fuck franchise has managed four, or one every 4.5 years.

    Rueben Droughns, 2005, 1232 yards
    Jamal Lewis, 2007, 1304 yards
    Jamal Lewis, 2008, 1002 yards
    Peyton Hillis, 2010, 1177 yards

    The Clowns have never had a RB selected for the Pro-Bowl.

    What about WR/TE, you say? Seems like there's stacks of 1000 yards receivers every year. Hell, many teams have two. Well, they've done marginally better there, producing 7 in 18 years:

    Kevin Johnson, 2001, 1097 yards
    Antonio Bryant, 2005, 1009 yards
    Braylon Edwards, 2007, 1289 yards
    Kellen Winslow II, 2007, 1106 yards
    Josh Gordon, 2013, 1646 yards
    Gary Barnidge, 2015, 1043 yards,
    Terrelle Pryor, 2016, 1007 yards

    In that time, 4 clowns receivers have earned Pro-Bowl recognition; Edwards/Winslow in '07, Gordon in '13 (also All-Pro), and Barnidge in '15. Edwards and Winslow were one-offs as they never approached that success again, Gordon turned out to be an actual retard, and it appears unlikely Barnidge will approach that level again unless they miraculously figure out the QB situation (longshot).

    So, in 18 years, the clowns have had a total of 11 players surpass the 1000 yard threshold, and have sent a total of 5 skill-position players to the Pro Bowl. Each of them were one-timers. Three of them were from the flukey 2007 offense that fell off a cliff the following year when they actually had to play a challenging schedule. That's just stunning incompetence from a personnel standpoint.

    Ladies and gentlemen, YOUR Cleveland Browns.

    well, the 2017 season highlight is already in the books with the greg williams presser, where he made a fool out of tony grossi and espn 850 immediately cut away from the press conference.
