    Always happy to see our best player since the rebirth of Browns’ football playing for us.

    It’s a shame that Pontbriand couldn’t have done his part to make Dawson 26 of 29 rather than 24 of 29. Two more wins would have been nice, but with the way they played 80-90% of last season, they just cemented that they couldn’t put points on the board.

    We’ll see if the Front Office does enough in the draft to improve the offense, because they have completely ignored it in free agency.

  2. Phil Dawson is one of the best to ever kick the ball. It’s always nice to see guys like that get a good contract. I’m sure he would prefer a long-term deal, but maybe he’s thinking of going somewhere else next season. Either way, he’ll perform well.
