The Way WE Hear It...

June 30, 2003



"If somebody knows my name," Ryan Pontbriand told
PFW last week, "it's a bad thing as far as the
fans go." Ah, the life of a long-snapper.
Pontbriand, a rookie from Rice, assumes that role
for the Browns, replacing Ryan Kuehl, now with
the Giants. Kuehl is regarded as one of the
league's best long-snappers, but Pontbriand
believes he can step right in without the Browns'
special teams missing a beat. "I know exactly
what they want, and I know I can do it," he said.
A good season for him, he said, will be one with
no bad snaps. The Browns are likely to judge his
performance the same way. The team surprised even
Pontbriand by using a fifth-round pick on him.
But we hear the Browns are pleased with the way
Pontbriand has looked thus far. "He's doing very
well," Browns special-teams coach Jerry Rosburg
said in June. "Never has a long-snapper received
so much attention. I think very highly of him. I
like to sleep on Saturday nights." Pontbriand is
aware of P Chris Gardocki's streak of 906 punts
without being blocked. "I don't plan on breaking
that for him," he said.
