This Is Why Phil Wears the "C"

December 17, 2008




It's all Browns all the time over at Deadspin, who dug up the following quote from Browns Captain Phil Dawson from Philly.com that we're obliged to share here:

When asked [after Monday night's loss to the Eagles] how it felt to eclipse the franchise record for most field goals in a season, Phil Dawson, kicker of the 4-10 Cleveland Browns, said: 'There's an old saying back in Texas that says, 'You know that white speck on top of chicken poop? It's still chicken poop.''

That's a good saying. We hope that Dawson might have shared it with his teammates as well. Note that Dawson did not say that he was out there having fun, doing his thing, jibber-jabbering and whatnot, even though he broke a rather prestigious franchise record. Too bad that the young Brownies are so much less likely to look up to the kicker than they would to, say, a certain multi-millionaire receiver who wants to convince us that poop is something other than what it is. (God, f*ck that guy.)

Anyway, thanks Phil, for giving us Browns fans something to cheer about for the first time in quite awhile. You're much more than just a white speck to us.
