“[I]t’s not what anyone expected from the golden-armed redhead on opening day.” — Mary Kay Cabot on Brandon Weeden
“I did not see a guy that was starry-eyed. Not at all. … I’m not discouraged at all.” — Pat Shurmur on Brandon Weeden
“Aw, man, I gotta get out of Cleveland. I gotta get out of Cleveland.” — Michael Vick on Cleveland
If you wondered how the Eagles finished 8-8 last season despite a roster supposedly loaded with talent, or if you wondered what coaching tree Pat Shurmur was plucked from, you’re wondering less after watching the Philly average over 5 yards per carry yesterday with one of the league’s best running backs (even with three plays of 10+ yards called back on penalties), yet insist on calling 60 pass plays to 23 runs. After the Browns pulled within four points in the third quarter, the Eagles went three straight series without a single rushing attempt, resulting in two three-and-outs and a throw by Michael Vick straight into the arms of D’Qwell

What constitutes a game-winning drive? Simply put, it's when a team secures or wrestles away the lead late in a one-possession game, rescuing their standings outlook and building character within the clutch.Michael Vick not only drove his offense to a 17-16 "vicktory" over the Cleveland Browns, but he essentially saved the Eagles' season, his starting job, and ...
It’s very easy to pile on Michael Vick after his 4 interception performance against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday. Anyone who reads this site with any regularity knows without any doubt that I’m no fan of Michael Vick. Never have been, probably never will be.
The problem is that Michael Vick is the Quarterback of the Eagles, which happens to be the team I love and would give...
Perhaps this was a sign we should’ve taken heed to before the ball was even kicked off. Brandon Weeden got caught under flag during the pregame ceremonies.
Now this is the starting quaterback of an NFL team, he should be able to out run 80% of the population, but the fact that he couldn’t out run the flag holders might be a slight cause of concern.
While this is quite funny...
GET ME OUT!
So far, this is our favorite moment of NFL opening Sunday.
Watch Browns rookie QB Brandon Weeden – making his first pro start, and clearly still adjusting to the NFL stage – get caught under the American flag during today’s Browns-Eagles pre-game ceremonies:
As SBNation points out, Weeden is clearly a patriot, and has draped himself in the stars and...
So many points of concerns from the Philadelphia Eagles’ ugly 17-16 win over the Cleveland Browns on Sunday that it’s hard to know where to begin. Mike Vick’s poor decision making? The beating he took in just one game (thank God for military-grade Kevlar vests…)? The pass/rush imbalance? And how happy should we really be about winning a game by one point given the fact...
The Philadelphia Eagles needed everything it took to pick up a week 1 win over the Cleveland Browns on Sunday. They withstood four interceptions from Michael Vick, poor play-calling from Andy Reid and a defense playing against a rookie quarterback and rookie running back, which has only happened in the first week four times in the past 44 years.
The Eagles may have escaped with a...
Brandon Weeden will always remember his first career NFL start, but not for good reasons. The 28-year-old rookie quarterback had a rough debut for the Browns, completing a little more than a third of his passes in a Cleveland loss to the Eagles. Weeden completed just 12 of 35 passes for 118 yards with a whopping four interceptions in the 19-16 defeat. If Weeden had been even just...
If The Cleveland Browns are going to be successful against the Eagles today they are going to have to keep the N.F.L.’s 2011 top ranked pass rush away from their 28-year-old starting quarterback Brandon Weeden. Browns fans and coaches have to be concerned with what Browns G.M. Tom Heckert describe as Weeden’s inability to hold onto the football. Heckert went on to say “those...
That did not take long.
Odds are, this did not turn out well.
One day into Brandon Weeden's pro career
and half the Cleveland
fanbase is ready to high-side him for a quarterback known for his toughness and
There's no question Weeden's performance yesterday was brutally bad.
Either the coaching staff did not prepare him...
As I perused the sports news this morning, I noticed a few things. For starters, a bunch of running backs had awesome games, which sucks for a guy like me who wants to sell high on Kevin Smith and Alfred Morris. Second, Jon Hamm is still my favorite St. Louis Cardinals fan and he’s packing heat. Third, Rihanna apparently performed at the closing ceremony of the 2012 Paralympics...
CLEVELAND -- Michael Vick threw four interceptions Sunday, but it was his touchdown pass in the final minute of the game that saved the Eagles from a Week 1 upset at the hands of the Browns. Vick capped a 91-yard, 16-play drive with a 4-yard touchdown pass to Clay Harbor with 1:18 left to rally the Eagles past the Browns, 17-16. The Browns have lost 13 of 14 season openers since...
“They’re schemed to rush the passer,” Browns head coach Pat Shurmur said. “You just look at the way they’re lined up, wide-nine techniques, they crowd the ball and they get after you.
“A first game loss is only fatal if we let it be,” Browns coach Pat Shurmur said on Monday. “That’s it. That’s the story. There are no moral victories."
