PLAYERS: Phil Dawson
TEAMS: Cleveland Browns
Eb
There has been on constant since the Cleveland Browns returned to the NFL in 1999. That is Phil Dawson, the Browns kicker. He has been on the team in every opening game since the team came back to Cleveland. Dawson made 93.5% of the kicks he attempted in the 2012 season. That puts him at a tie for 8th on the list for field goals. Dawson would have finished higher had the Browns offense been able to get into field goal range more often. With free agency getting ready to kick off in just a few days there is still no word of the Browns making an offer to Dawson to return for his 14th season with the team. The Browns may think he is too expensive. Now that word is out about Cribbs lowering his asking price to return to the Browns, some wonder if the team is expecting Dawson to do the same. Should Phil Dawson take less money to finish his career in Cleveland? Dawson said at the conclusion of the 2012 season he hoped to return for the 2013 season. The team has made no moves to help that h...

Tough decisions loom for Browns on fan favorites

Twenty-two combined seasons in Orange and Brown. Four Pro Bowls. Two fan favorites. Both free agents. Cleveland fans love to hold on to their sports heroes. Josh Cribbs and Phil Dawson have been consistently the best things about Cleveland Browns football since the team returned in 1999. Josh Cribbs walked on the team as an undrafted free agent after playing QB for Kent State in...

2013 NFL Mock Draft: Defense dominates the first round

This latest 2013 NFL mock draft takes into account where players could be drafted so far in the process and takes in account the Alex Smith to the Kansas City Chiefs trade. The NFL Scouting Combine is over, and a lot of players shot up the board due to their performance. Eddie Lacy dropped out of the first round due to opting out of the combine. Sharrif Floyd and Sheldon Richardson...

I don’t feel like it, but let’s talk Browns

People are always talking about the Browns, it seems. Usually I’m one of the ones talking the most, but I don’t really feel like it right now. So to prove it to you, I’ll talk Browns just enough to tell you why it’s kind of boring to me right now. Brandon Weeden’s name has been in the news because nobody can predict the future. Really, that’s what it comes down to, right...

Browns reportedly love Geno Smith

According to Matt Miller of Bleacher Report, the Cleveland Browns love former West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith in this year’s draft.  They didn’t expect him to be available when they go on the board with the sixth pick, but now that the Chiefs traded for Alex Smith, they might be able to snatch him up. I don’t think the new Browns regime believes they have their quarterback...

It’s Time For The Cleveland Browns To Cut Receiver Mohamed Massaquoi

The Cleveland Browns need to part ways with receiver Mohamed Massaquoi. He has never lived up to all the hype he got from former team president Mike Holmgren. Massaquoi has never been the same guy since taking a hit to the head from Steelers line backer James Harrison. If you were to visit the official Browns web site you would find Mo-Mass on the Reserve/Injured list. He only played...

Attack is the keyword for the Browns defense

Some day its the chicken, others the egg. So it goes with the Cleveland Browns' new defensive system, a chicken or egg question if ever there was one. Did the Browns adopt the new system because they hired coaches who believe in it, or did they choose the coaches because they believe in the Browns preferred system? CEO Joe Banner had a plain answer last week when he met the...

It’s J.R. Rickert, Cribbs Agent That Should Know The Tampering Rules, Not Josh.

It’s comical how many people want to come out and accuse Josh Cribbs the Cleveland Browns great return man of tampering because his agent has talked to many NFL teams about acquiring the soon to be free agent. Lets get one thing perfectly clear, it is Rickert’s that should know the tampering rules, Not Cribbs. Why do you think Cribbs has an agent in the first place? The first...

Josh Cribbs says his agent is meeting with several NFL teams, agent quickly denies it

It’s become abundantly clear that NFL players don’t quite have an understanding of NFL rules. Free agency start on March 12 and until that date players can’t begin negotiating with any other team but their own. If players were to meet with other teams, it would be considered tampering. But that didn’t stop Vontae Leach from tweeting that former teammate Sean Smith was negotiating...

Come (back) to Colinwood

There was a really good piece by Joe Crea in the Plain Dealer last week about an influx of new businesses and other development in Cleveland’s Collinwood neighborhood (“where Frankie Yankovic first learned to polka”) and its center, the Waterloo Road District, home of one of the best concert venues (and brunch spots) in the U.S.A., the Beachland Ballroom. The article contains...
