“I think that I was disappointed initially” Brown explained.

Cleveland Browns Hall of Famer is best known as perhaps the greatest player in NFL history.

Brown did the most in the least amount of time. He left with health intact and a legacy of being the best of the best. He led the NFL in rushing yards eight times in nine seasons with the Cleveland Browns and led the league in rushing touchdowns five times.

Second place on that sack list, Los Angeles Chargers pass rusher Melvin Ingram, earned AFC Player of the Month honors for his September performances. Ingram totaled 5.5 sacks, including a three-sack game against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 3.

The veteran would have passed Brown long ago if he got some better blocking. Gore hasn’t had a 100-yard game since his last wearing a San Francisco 49ers jersey in 2014. As a Colt, Gore has spent 20 games below the 100-yard barrier. That struggle isn’t a Gore problem; it’s an Indy problem.

“I’ll be honest, because I’m playing now, I’m really not thinking about it because I am still active and I want to be successful here,” Gore said about passing Brown. “I want to do whatever it takes to help this team win.”

He got the yardage necessary when he gained 16 yards on a run to the left side with about a minute left in the first quarter. The run gave him 30 yards on three carries in the first quarter.


Coming of age in America’s turbulent 1960s, though, Brown is also recognized for a social activism beyond football that led to the Black Economic Union and the Amer-I-Can program which has changed the lives of former gang members and ex-convicts.

The Bengals QB should find many of the same windows Jacoby Brissett threw through last Sunday. DeShone Kizer won’t play scared, either. Would like to cheap jerseys see the Browns use Isaiah Crowell a bit more.

The Browns offense is a mess. DeShone Kizer has had massive valleys and few peaks through four weeks. The running game is almost nonexistent.

And the receivers are either injured or ineffective. Hue Jackson needs to get Isaiah Crowell rolling Sunday versus a Jets defense that has given up the fourth-most rushing yards per game in the NFL this season (143.8) to take some pressure off Kizer. Without the threat of the run, defenses have keyed in on the quarterback, knocking him around and getting creative in coverage packages. Play action doesn’t work when no one believes you can (or will) run the ball.

Brown had one of the most prolific final seasons in NFL history. In 1965, he rushed for 1,544 yards and tied a career-high with 17 rushing touchdowns. That stood as the most rushing yards for a player in his final season until Tiki Barber of the Giants broke it when he rushed for 1,662 yards in 2006.

On the first play, Roethlisberger launched his best toss of the night, a 23-yard dart to the left sideline, where Brown hauled it in with a deft Julio-esque toe-tap. Brown followed up that unbelievable catch with another, this one a 14-yard grab to get Pittsburgh in field-goal position. Chris Boswell redeemed his earlier extra point miss soon after, knocking in a Heinz Field-record 53-yarder as time expired to seal the victory.

When Brown arrived on the NFL scene in 1957, he fought for equal rights in a league that still limited the number and influence of African-American players. “That’s two questions sort, of. My wife made sure that I voted and she voted,” Brown said. “I was always told that one of the greatest freedoms we have in this country is the fact that we are allowed as a part of the people to vote on our candidates. It’s a privilege and it represents freedom. It represents a civil kind of approach to living.
