Browns: 27.6%

Posted by disappointmentzone on 1 November 2007

Football Prospectus has updated its playoff odds report through the games of Week 8 and the Browns, who last week were given a 19% chance of making the playoffs, now find themselves on the quick climb towards probable with a 27.6% chance of representing the city of Cleveland in yet another post season, which would put the three major Cleveland teams in the playoffs in the same season since, like, I really don’t know. A long time. At least six years, maybe longer.

    It has never happened… but I think you knew that. The closest year was 1994 when the infamous baseball strike took place. A brief history:

    1954 Browns & Indians – Cavs not a team
    1985 Cavs & Browns
    1988 Cavs & Browns
    1989 Cavs & Browns
    1994 Cavs & Browns – Baseball strike, Indians would’ve made the playoffs
    1995 Indians & Cavs
    1996 Indians & Cavs
    1998 Indians & Cavs
    2007 Indians & Cavs – Browns still playing (above .500)
