Sam Wyche

NFL Network

While you’re watching the Bengals-Browns game, set the DVR to record “Paul Brown: A Football Life” (9 p.m. Friday, NFL Network), an excellent profile about the innovative genius who founded the Bengals and Browns.

Brown was the first coach to use game film to scout opponents and create a playbook for his team. He was the first to put a radio receiver inside the helmet worn by his quarterback (in 1954!) and put a face mask on it.

“There’s nobody in the game that I have more respect for than Paul Brown (and) his contributions to the game, to the way it's played, to protective equipment, to the playbook,” says Bill Belichick, New England Patriots coach.

Former Cincinnati Bengals head coach Sam Wyche will be tail-gating with the Romney-Ryan "Commit to Mitt Early Vote Express" bus outside Paul Brown Stadium before tonight's nationally-televised Bengals-Steelers game.

Wyche is expected to join the Romney-Ryan bus, which is traveling the state promoting early voting for the GOP presidential tickets, at 5:30 p.m. in parking lot D near Paul Brown Stadium.

Wyche coached the Bengals from 1984 until 1991. He held the record for most wins by a head coach (64) until he was overtaken by Marvin Lewis, the current head coach, in 2011.
