Some key things:

Only NFL team to win 3 straight championships (once 1929-1931, again 1965-1967)
12 total championships most in NFL (granted GB has been around a lot longer than some)
Lambeau Field: 3 things---Lambeau Leap, Frozen Tundra, Ice Bowl
Also there is no other NFL franchise with the community/team relationship that is woven so tightly
TN, we must have been separated at birth. I've been a Pack fan since 1982. I was kid back then, and I made a habit of picking a new favorite team every year. That year, it was the Packers, and it turned out to be the first time in 10 years they made the playoffs. So I stuck with 'em, and I've been a fan ever since. I got sucked in by the history, the tradition, the whole David vs. Goliath small-town appeal, the unprecedented number of championships, the whole thing. Now I'm a shareholder! I can never imagine being a fan of any other team the way I back my Packers. There's nothing else like the Packers in all of professional sports. They'll always be my favorite.

History and Tradition: A. Jim Brown, Otto Graham, Lou Groza, Mac Speedie, Ozzie Newsome, Hanford Dixon, Bernie Kosar ... And then there's stuff like Red Right 88, The Drive, and of course Art Modell -- not positive points in the team's history, but points that serve to unite the fans and the team nonetheless.
Division: A. It's great being in a division with teams you really really really hate! Heh.
Uniforms: A, for thumbing noses at the NFL's voracious marketing machine. We don't need no stinkin' logo OR The orange helmet is the logo. Take your pick.
Ownership: B-.
Location: A. Location of Cleveland? Or of the stadium? Either way, how can you beat the beautiful shores of Lake Erie?
Stadium: Haven't been there yet.
Fans: A++++++. The reach of the Cleveland Browns Backers Worldwide says it all. Look into the stands next time the Browns play in someone else's house.

2007 Season
Offense: B and much improved. It's nice to see a decent offensive line for the first time in many years.
Defense: D. Trouble stopping the run.
Special Teams: B
Coaching: B. At least they're not doing anything too stupid.

Having been to the new stadium, I'll rate it at least a B+. It lacks the traditional charm of the old stadium, but it is a great stadium in a wonderful location. If it were slightly less commercial, and more nostalgic, it would get the bump into the As. Perhaps time will give it a character all its own...

GO BROWNS!!!!

Well, hopefully you're sticking by the team, regardless. You don't want to prove the fan rankings (Oakland 32nd out of 32 for fan support).

Falcons: D-....could have easily said "F" but our defense is OK, and I have hopes that the draft could be good for us.

Buffalo Bills

Overall a grade C which I would grade lower if not for Kevin Everett and 14 or so players on IR, including a few key starters. Next year is year three for Jauronimo and it will be the year that defines "going up or going nowhere". Wings anyone?

Washington Redskins

Regardless of what happens on Sunday vs Dallas, I give them an A-

They have been resilient after losing almost their entire offensive line and key players for the season, not to mention Sean Taylor's death, and then coming back to win three straight with a backup QB. Hail to the Skins! they are an inspiration and a good example of overcoming adversity.
