In the auditorium that is used as a situation room for the NFL Draft, you can see four retired jersey numbers hanging on the wall: Brown (32), Davis (45), Fleming (46), and Groza (76). There are actually five total numbers retired by the Browns, the fifth being of quarterback Otto Graham (14) who played with the Browns from 1946-1955. See more »

It is a great flick! I love football and was thrilled to see a couple of my Favorite teams portrayed in this movie.... KC and Seattle! There are several NFL teams in this movie. I saw a special screening of it before it was released. I took my friend who does NOT like football and she actually really enjoyed it. It is more about the draft process of the teams than any actual football being played. I liked the story line really well and it was a good paced movie, never boring. I recommend the movie whether you are a football fan or not. Give it a shot and go see it. I am actually going to buy the DVD when it comes out. I think Kevin Costner did a great job! S
