CLEVELAND -- In one of the oddest estate sales in memory, officials began selling off yesterday the remnants of 50 years of Browns history -- from Art Modell's luxury toilet to splintered bleacher seats -- to clear the way for the arrival of a new franchise in three years.Thousands of the Browns' legendary fans and some of their old players trooped through the carcass of Cleveland Stadium, paying their final respects and sifting through mounds of memorabilia that will be auctioned off next week.

Returning to Cleveland may be a bittersweet memory for Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome and several other employees who worked for the franchise under its previous incarnation as the Browns. For Morgan Cox, the trip is memorable for a different reason. On Dec. 26, 2010, the long snapper tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee while blocking on Billy Cundiff's 27-yard field goal in the second quarter en route to an eventual Ravens' 20-10 win. Fortunately for Cox, he hasn't allowed the memory of that injury to seep into his consciousness when returning to Cleveland Browns Stadium.

As a devoted Cleveland Browns fan, it's really hard to listen to the accolades about Art Modell and what a super guy he was ("NFL will have a moment of silence for Art Modell at all stadiums this weekend," Sept. 7). Conveniently, Mr. Modell always blamed his moving the team from Cleveland to Baltimore on "the politicians and bureaucrats who covered their own rear end. " Really? Art could have sold the team and kept it in Cleveland. He would have solved his money problems and not needed to hire armed bodyguards.

You want to cheer on Baltimore's newest team but don't have the $4,000 or so in the cookie jar for permanent seat licenses to take the family out to watch the Browns at Memorial Stadium next year.There's a solution: Instead of waiting for the Browns to come to Baltimore, go to their final game in Cleveland.The Browns' last regular-season game at Cleveland Stadium will be Dec. 17 against the Cincinnati Bengals. There were nearly 8,000 no-shows for the Browns' game Sunday against the Houston Oilers, and if Clevelanders don't build a bonfire with their tickets to the Bengals game, they probably can be bought at reduced cost from scalpers.

An Ohio judge temporarily blocked the Browns yesterday from moving to Baltimore by ordering the National Football League team to abide by its current lease until a dispute over the document can be settled in a trial.The ruling, although disappointing to the team, does not prevent it from moving here eventually."We expected this. We're going to be in Baltimore, and we're going to be in Baltimore soon," said team owner Art Modell. "It was a no-win situation for us. We're still going ahead with the process of moving."

CLEVELAND -- Cleveland Browns owner Art Modell was hung in effigy outside Cleveland Stadium and verbally lashed by commentators Bob Costas and Mike Ditka on NBC yesterday.Costas called Modell's proposed move to Baltimore "one of the outrages of the century in sports" and said it's ironic that Modell is a Brooklyn native because he will "become his sport and his generation's Walter O'Malley," who moved the Dodgers from Brooklyn to Los Angeles in 1957.Costas said that Modell was a "good man who made a terrible mistake" and added, "No doubt most of this is his fault."

George Kokinis, the Ravens' pro personnel director, sizes up the Browns: Strength of offense Stability at quarterback. They went back and forth with Kelly Holcomb and Tim Couch last year. Jeff Garcia has won a lot of games and has completed a lot of passes. He can make plays when plays break down. His mobility and ability to see the field are his biggest strengths. Strength of defense Front line. There's talent there with a lot of high draft picks, but it hasn't jelled yet. Defensive tackle Gerard Warren has rededicated himself and wants to prove that he is worthy of where he was picked.

Ravens run offense vs. Browns run defense: Jamal Lewis has owned the Browns, averaging 191.4 yards in the past five meetings. Last season, the NFL rushing champion gained 333 of his 500 yards against Cleveland on six carries. But the loss of left tackle Jonathan Ogden, who is unlikely to play with a sprained left knee, could limit the Ravens' outside runs. The Browns ranked 23rd against the run last season, surrendering 200 yards three times (Lewis twice and San Diego's LaDainian Tomlinson)
