All Our Favorite, Depressing Signs from the Browns 0-16 Parade

Browns fans took to the streets around First Energy Stadium Saturday afternoon, in a convivial display of team pride in the face of virtually unprecedented disaster. After an 0-16 season, an ignoble record achieved only one other time in NFL history, local organizer Chris McNeil planned the parade to hold the front office accountable and to raise money for the Cleveland Food Bank. Though not without controversy, the parade was emblematic of the fan base's endurance and grit rather than of its (some said) inappropriate sense of humor. The Lake Erie wind chill was extreme, but the sun was out and the signage was on point. Here were some of our favorites. All photos by Sam Allard.
