The Canton, Ohio Browns

Cleveland has done pretty well at the Hall in Canton, Ohio. The Club has 16 inductees in total. The members from the Browns cover every decade of play from the 1940s through to and including the 1990s. Browns' members have been inducted to Canton in every decade since the Hall was created from the 1960s through to and including the 2000s. The first Brown ever inducted was Otto Graham in 1965. The most recent Brown inducted was Gene Hickerson in 2007, who passed away only a few months ago. Dante Lavelli, who was inducted in 1975, also passed away very recently. Jim Brown was inducted in 1971. Only a small handfull of the league's 32 franchises has more members at the Hall: Bears (26), Packers (21), Giants (18), Steelers (18) and the Redskins (17). Of those teams with more members than the Browns only 2 (Packers and the Giants) have always had the same name. The Bears were once called the Staleys also of Chicago, the Steelers were once called the Pirates also of Pittsburgh, and the Redskins were once called the Braves of Boston. The busts at Canton illustrate the storried history of the Cleveland Browns - a history that we should be very proud of while at the same time looking forward to the future. 2009 is a turning point for the Browns. A new head coach and a new GM along with numerous new assistant coaches and an expected change at the QB position all combine to provide a new opportunity for our Team. Let's hope that the legends of the past can spark this new group so that they strive to be in the same company at Canton. Go Browns!
