The fifth season of The NFL Network's "A Football Life" program has had nearly all black subjects; Okoye, Owens, Bettis, Page, etc. There's been only one white football player, Steve Largent. Dick Vermeil was the subject last week. You can guess how that went--Vermeil worked his players hard and cried. On Friday night, there is a good one from a historical perspective, the late Browns and Bengals coach (and Bengals owner) Paul Brown. Brown created the Cleveland Browns for the All America Conference in 1946. They won the NFL title in 1950 when the AAFC folded. Paul Brown and Browns ower Art Modell became bitter enemies when Modell fired him after the 1962 season. Brown was given the Cincinnati Bengal franchise in 1968 as owner-head coach. In his last year with the Bengals in 1975, Paul Brown went 11-3. He had many innovations and unlike Lombardi, many of his former players and assistant coaches were successful as head coaches. Chuck Knoll and Bill Walsh are two examples.
