2. They ditched all the combinations
If memory serves me right, Alec Schiener was in the charge on the business side of things when the Browns revealed their new uniforms ahead of the 2015 season.
The uniforms we ultimately got were supposedly heavily researched, with Nike and the Browns even going so far as to suit up actors and watch them play on TV.
Twelve different uniform combinations, is what Cleveland’s marketing department sold us on! Geesh, the team had mad more uniform combos than wins in the first four seasons the Browns wore those threads.
I think most fans don’t care about uniforms, as Cleveland won. That said, the uniforms the Browns gave to history yesterday will forever be synonymous with a historical futility. There aren’t many teams who had as bad a run as the Browns did while wearing those digs, and now thankfully, they’re gone forever.
