The 80's Niners is the golden era of football.

They won with beauty back in a time when beauty was unthinkable.

Changed the game forever.

A real eye opener to people who only know his name as a coach, as I did before I read it.

A credit to the organisation. RIP.

Only because they wore Golden helmets.

But seriously the Packers in the 60's, the Steelers in the 70's the 49ers in the 80's.......90's era no one cares about (Cowboys), 00's Patriots all golden eras of our great game.

Which is the best? Who knows?
80's had great teams but less parity.
I think a lot of us would put it at the top because its the decade a lot of us found football.

lol of course the Browns of the 50's was the best

On another note out of the eras you mentioned, though i have only ever seen highlights of that era my choice would be the 70's, seemed to be far more competitive and you had some great D back then. The 90's with the Cowboys/Niners and Packers was only very good

50's no one remembers or talks about these days.....but clearly a one time league like todays SPL
60's was classic but we dominated
70's Steel Curtain, Raiders, Cowboys, Dolphins I would say of the old days this was the best.
80's we know about
90's was really Cowboys/49ers not us. Wasn't the best until the middle of the decade when the affects of free agency took hold.
00's awesome and awesome Super Bowls
10's good but rule changes have chipped away at the game.

I disagree i think it was good to see an old established franchise like the pack wake up and come to play so to speak and as for the 50's well all im going to say is if an original NFL team, say like the Eagles/Bears or Giants had done what the Browns did then we wouldnt be playing for the Lombardi trophy as it would be called another name

I suppose I look at it with regret one Super Bowl with the talent we had was disappointing. But the Cowboys well and truly had our number.

maybe true, but I think it was just before the game caught the national attention it isn't any anti Browns bias.

The Brown Trophy doesn't sound right.
