    BB Tips His Hoodie to Paul Brown

         One of the past coaches that BB holds in extremely high regard is former Cleveland Browns/Cincinnati Bengals head coach, Paul Brown. I mean really...how many other coaches have their team named after them: 

    "The name of the team was at first left up to Brown, who rejected calls for it to be christened the Browns.[70] McBride then held a contest to name the team in May 1945; "Cleveland Panthers" was the most popular choice, but Brown rejected it because it was the name of an earlier failed football team. "That old Panthers team failed," Brown said. "I want no part of that name."[71] In August, McBride gave in to popular demand and christened the team the Browns, despite Paul Brown's objections.[72] With the roster fixed and the team's name chosen, Brown set out to build a dynasty. "I want to be what the New York Yankees are in baseball or Ben Hogan is in golf," he said.[73]

    When he passed Paul Brown for lifetime wins as a head coach, he wore a fedora in tribute to Brown:
