This documentary tells the story of how the Cleveland Browns got where they are today. The Browns were a fifth-place team at the time they were cut from their Super Bowl hopes. They had the players and the right people behind the scenes to win, but they didn’t have the talent. After a five-game losing streak, Art Modell announced a move to Baltimore. This announcement shocked Browns fans and led to the team’s defeat in the Super Bowl.
The move to Baltimore was made because the Browns’ new coach, Bill Belichick, was able to get a new stadium in the state within a few months. But once BB’s influence started to wear thin in the organization, he was forced to sell the team. He hoped the story wouldn’t be revealed until the Browns were out of town. This was not to be.
