The Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers will battle it out for the Super Bowl on Sunday.
If you're a Cleveland Browns fan, you know that it's really going to be the "once-upon-a-time" Browns that will take the field against the San Francisco 49ers Sunday. The Baltimore Ravens play in Super Bowl 47 on Feb. 3 at 6:30 p.m on CBS (Channel 19-WOIO) It's the Ravens second Super Bowl appearance since 1996, when the late Art Modell moved the Browns from Cleveland to Baltimore. In that same span, Browns fans have suffered through years without football and a consistently lousy football team that boasts only one playoff appearance, ending in a heart-breaking loss to Pittsburgh. With all that said, who are you rooting for in the Super Bowl? Are there any Browns fans that will be rooting for the Ravens? Tell us why in the comments. Or are…

With Chip Kelly off the board, where will Jimmy Haslam and Joe Banner go next?
Around this time last week, I wasn't very high on Chip Kelly becoming the Cleveland Browns next head coach. Yet somehow I spent too many moments of my weekend checking Twitter and ESPN to see if Kelly chose mashed or baked potatoes for his steak dinners with the Browns and Philadelphia Eagles. Finally, on Sunday The Plain Dealer reported the Browns "walked away" because Kelly wouldn't likely leave the University of Oregon. Sure. I believe it. Just like the nerd in high school who told everyone he just didn't think taking the homecoming queen to prom wasn't going to work out. She didn't say no, he just didn't think it was a good idea. No matter what, Chip Kelly will stay in Oregon and Cleveland is back to square one. There are many names …

It has been reported today that the Cleveland Browns' head coach and General Manager Tom Heckert have been fired on Monday.
Everyone saw it coming after the Cleveland Browns 24-10 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday, but it was confirmed on Monday: Head Coach Pat Shurmer and General Manager Tom Heckert are gone. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported through Twitter Monday morning that both had been fired after a less-than-stellar 5-11 season. Shurmer had a dismal 9-23 record over his first two seasons as the head coach. He took the position in 2011. Heckert was hired in 2010. With Shurmur out the door, the Browns will begin their search for a new head coach immediately. The Plain Dealer reports some names in the running are University of Oregon coach Chip Kelly, Penn State's Bill O'Brien, Indianapolis Colts offensive coordinator and interim head coach Bruce Arians …

Ernie Green, a Browns legend who played alongside Hall of Famer Jim Brown, was diagnosed in 2005.
In the spirit of 'men can get breast cancer too,' we wanted to share the story of a Cleveland legend who survived breast cancer. When he played for the Browns from 1962-1968 as a fullback alongside Football Hall of Famer Jim Brown, Ernie Green lived in Shaker Heights, according to The Plain Dealer. Green watched his two sisters survive the disease before he was diagnosed himself in 2005. He was treated at University Hospitals Case Medical Center. Active in philanthropy and a successful business man, Green lives in Dayton. So before you dismiss that lump you feel, get it checked out. Related stories:
