Browns' Fan Rant Curses Ryan Pontbriand In Loss To Rams

After an embarrassing loss to the Houston Texans last week, local comedian and Browns fan Mike Polk went on a rant in front of a dark Cleveland Browns stadium.  The video itself has been viewed over a half-million times, and can be seen here if you missed it.

In the video, Polk is seen wearing a Ryan Pontbriand jersey.  Pontbriand is the long-snapper for the Browns and has become a sort-of cult legend in Cleveland after being drafted in the 5th Round of the 2003 NFL Draft.  He is one of only twelve long-snappers to actually be drafted since 1982.

So what happens on Sunday against the Rams?  It is a bad snap by Pontbriand that leads to Phil Dawson's missed 22-yard field goal late in the 4th quarter.  The miss cost the Browns the game.

Polk was asked about the Browns' latest loss and what part his Pontbriand jersey may have played in the game.
