THE BROWNS BOARD

The Browns live in Hell

There's a guy who posts very interesting videos, Jon Bois, who also works for SB Nation. I enjoy both his 'Chart Party' and 'Pretty Good' series, eventhough when he talks about sports I don't follow like baseball or basketball. 

Funny enough, he has done season's last Chart Party and it is about the Browns.

I hope no one gets angry, I find it interesting because he provides a lot of data, and as desperating as the video is because of what he says, I think it is better to post it now that the Browns have reached the peak of futility.

Note: he consideres the Ravens as the Browns successors and the current Browns as an expansion team.

... Enjoy?

The Old Norse feminine proper noun Hel is identical to the name of the entity that presides over the realm, Old Norse Hel. The word has cognates in all branches of the Germanic languages, including Old English hell (and thus Modern English hell), Old Frisian helle, Old Saxon hellia, Old High German hella, and Gothic halja. All forms ultimately derive from the reconstructed Proto-Germanic feminine noun *xaljō or *haljō ('concealed place, the underworld'). In turn, the Proto-Germanic form derives from the o-grade form of the Proto-Indo-European root *kel-, *kol-: 'to cover, conceal, save'.[1]

The term is etymologically related to Modern English hall and therefore also Valhalla, an afterlife 'hall of the slain' in Norse Mythology. Hall and its numerous Germanic cognates derive from Proto-Germanic *hallō 'covered place, hall', from Proto-Indo-European *kol-.[2]

Related early Germanic terms and concepts include Proto-Germanic *xalja-rūnō(n), a feminine compound noun, and *xalja-wītjan, a neutral compound noun. This form is reconstructed from the Latinized Gothic plural noun *haliurunnae (attested by Jordanes; according to philologist Vladimir Orel, meaning 'witches'), Old English helle-rúne ('sorceress, necromancer', according to Orel), and Old High German helli-rūna 'magic'. The compound is composed of two elements: *xaljō (*haljō) and *rūnō, the Proto-Germanic precursor to Modern English rune.[3] The second element in the Gothic haliurunnae may however instead be an agent noun from the verb rinnan ("to run, go"), which would make its literal meaning "one who travels to the netherworld".[4][5]

Proto-Germanic *xalja-wītjan (or *halja-wītjan) is reconstructed from Old Norse hel-víti 'hell', Old English helle-wíte 'hell-torment, hell', Old Saxon helli-wīti 'hell', and the Middle High German feminine noun helle-wīze. The compound is a compound of *xaljō (discussed above) and *wītjan (reconstructed from forms such as Old English witt 'right mind, wits', Old Saxon gewit 'understanding', and Gothic un-witi 'foolishness, understanding').[6]

Kinda confused by some of the stats that try to downgrade them even more.... 

Browns have only played in front of America 3 times and lost them all... in 2008 they smoked the Super Bowl Champs on Monday night football, but they didn't count it because it was on a cable network... so how many other things like that fit in there?

Then the draft picks.... when the Browns don't get the first pick in the draft, half the time better 1999 and 2018 the teams that did get the first pick lost to the Browns that season?...  

i kinda drifted off after those two things...
