Paul Brown was a football genius and the father of two NFL franchisesthe Cleveland Browns, who carry his name, and the Cincinnati Bengals. Arguably the most important figure in the history of the sport, he was a renowned coach and owner, and when he passed away on August 5, 1991, the game lost a giant. But for the Browns and Bengals, his death would herald a new era of bad luck, poor judgment, and comic folly that soon had fans whispering about a curse.

Paul Browns Ghost explores the mystery surrounding the greatest ghost story in NFL history: why these two once-proud franchises have been perpetually denied good fortune in such dramatic, yet different waysas if theyre being haunted by their mutual patriarch.

Jonathan Knight takes readers through a haunted house filled with tales that explain the fraternalalmost biblicalconnection between the teams. He examines the colorful characters and memorable moments that both defined and defiled the history of a rivalry that evolved from three decades of bad blood between Brown and Cleveland owner Art Modell.

From coaches they shared to draft picks they both lusted after, the Browns and Bengals are connected in ways even their die-hard fans may not realize. Readers will discover the key role the Bengals played in the original Browns move to Baltimore, how the Browns were instrumental in the Bengals financially crippling new stadium deal, and how the Bengals actually almostbecame the new Browns.

Through the lens of the enduring legacy of one of footballs pioneers,Paul Browns Ghost is a witty, whimsical look at decades of absurd incompetence set against the offbeat rivalry between footballs two most hard-luck teams.
