Paul Brown founded the Bengals after being fired by the Cleveland Browns, Cincinnati had a team in the 1930s called the Bengals, so it was named after that team, but the High School that Paul Brown attended and later coached was also called the Tigers so it had that link as well.

Interestingly Paul Brown chose the exact same shade of orange that the Cleveland Browns used.

Funny enough the Cleveland Browns were named after Paul Brown, though that team eventually moved and became the Baltimore Ravens, with a new Cleveland Browns reentering the NFL a number of years later. The New Cleveland team was allowed to adopt the records of the old Cleveland Browns team,
The Audacity of naming a team after yourself.

How garbage is that Browns leprechaun mascot?

Brown wasn't the owner of the Browns, just the head coach. Art modell eventually bought the Browns and had a massive falling out with brown and sacked him. Brown then founded the Bengals. Modell eventually screwed Cleveland over and moved the club to Baltimore and became the Ravens.

Niners undisputed best D in the NFL all season!

Philly 16th best D against rushing yardage....

Christian McCaffrey - Elijah Mitchell - Deebo - and the best blocking FB in the game Kyle Juszczyk with the genius of Shanahan in formulating running/blocking plays that noone have ever seen (and the likes of Kittle + Trent Williams power and athleticism as lead blockers) will create nighmares for the Eagles D!

Jalen Hurts will seriously have to play a lights out game at QB!

Fred Warner as 49ers defensive QB + Nick Bosa's pressure on Hurts will be the difference if the Niners win!

I am nervous - but confident in this unit and would bet against them at your peril!

I ain't counting any chickens brother!

Just an honest assessment - albeit from a partisan supporter!
