This was a time when Cleveland Coach Paul Brown roamed the sidelines……and Hall of Fame players like QB Otto Graham and RB Marion Motley in the early 50’s….who was followed by RB Jim Brown….who ruled the gridiron as the greatest running back of the decade of the 60’s….providing creative offenses for the Browns…..while the Giants featured an offensive juggernaut headed-up by QB Y A Tittle, RB Frank Gifford and WR Kyle Rote, Sr…..as these two storied teams played games of intense rivalry during the 50’s and 60’s…and provided the content for this video…..which so aptly evidences HBO’s opinion….as hosted by Barry Tompkins and Paul Macguire of HBO sports….in this walk down memory lane as one of the all-time greatest rivalries in NFL history.
