    This was just said by a reporter during the Ravens parade

    "These fans have been so patient waiting 12 years for another Trophy."

    32 teams. Average wait is 32 years.

    Then you have the Seahawks, Bills, Browns, Bengals, Eagles, Cardinals, Titans, Houston as a city, Jaguars, that have never won.

    Chiefs haven't won in 43 years, Dolphins haven't won in 41. We don't have it as bad as some others.

    Forgot the Vikings and the Lions.

    Imagine being a Browns fan. Putting up with all that for years. Then the team has some epic losses. INT to lose the game against the Raiders in the late 70's. The drive. The fumble.

    Then the team moves, and goes on a great 15 year run, with 2 SB victories, being led by your HOF tight end as their GM.

    I still can't believe the Ravens won. Some organizations get lucky and some don't. Jets just can't get over the hump

    I watched it. Just screwed with the TV color so the purple looked more greenish.

    I can pretend.

    Thanks for pointing out the Chiefs and the Dolphins, the Jets are under more scrunity because they are a NY team.

    You forgot that they are also division rivals. I think the Browns fans have it worst of all.

    You are aware that the Browns have only bben around since 1999.

    The old Browns won EIGHT championships BTW. The Jets won't have eight until about 2115 (if ever).

    The Lions also have a few championships. Been awhile but more than the Jets.

    Yes the Browns and Lions were dominating in the 50s. Although some of the Browns championships were won in the AAFL or whatever it was called, before they joined the NFL. That's like saying Herschel Walker was a world champion in the USFL.

    So for any Brown fan not currently on Medicare, all he has seen are heartbreaking losses in the playoffs, then see their beloved team MOVE, get a new set of scrubs while the old team goes on the best 15 year run since Otto Grahm was slinging the pigskin around.

    I would take being a Jets fan over that any day.

    Actually, the Browns don't really have it all that bad. I recall a telecast in which the announcer said the Ravens has sent all the old records back to Cleveland. So the Ravens now consider themselves to have first come into existence in their first year in Baltimore. Jim Brown's acheivements and all those NFL Championships are part of the current Browns.

    The stipulation of the move had all Cleveland Browns records staying in Cleveland when they originally left for Baltimore.

    I don't know anyone who gives two sh*ts about the NFL pre-1960's.

    Interesting. Judging from the comments here about the sorry history of the Browns, apparently there are not a lot of folks who know this.

    Yes try to discredit anything possibly positive about the Jets... how new and original.

    The NFL, as we know it today, was created by the NFL/AFL merger in 1970.

    Anything prior to that has no relevance whatsoever to today's NFL.
