November 18, 2008
Rejoice! The Browns won a game on the road on a Monday Night where the winds were howling and Brady Quinn was the starting QB. That’s the good news. The bad news is that the defense nearly choked on another double digit lead and literally forgot how to tackle. If not for the magic foot of “Philly The Groin,” Phil Dawson, we would all be sitting here this morning wondering how such a winnable game got away.
You can have any kicker you want, give me “The Groin.” Seriously, how clutch can one man be? I know he hasn’t played in the big games, but Phil Dawson is moving towards the Adam Vinatieri category. He went 5-5 on the night, including the game-winning 56 yarder on a night where the wind was whipping. This is just the latest in a long line of clutch kicks by the last original “new” Brown.
