Waiting For Next Year:
Brandon Weeden will become the first rookie QB to ever start a season opener for the Browns. Yesterday, he spoke about having Trent Richardson in the line-up, his coaches and first opponent-
“(On handing the ball to Trent Richardson)- “It will be a good play. It will be one of the better plays we have in the playbook. He’s one of those guys when he’s back there, it’s just a whole other dynamic to this offense. You guys saw a little bit of him, he’s moving around pretty good so it’s exciting to have him back.”
(On what it is like to have guys like Pat Shurmur, Brad Childress and Mike Holmgren teaching him during his rookie season)- “To have guys that you just named, those are guys that have been in this league a long time and have been around a lot of great quarterbacks so I’d be crazy not to listen to them. I’m just a sponge, I’ll ask them questions especially Mr. Holmgren. He is around practice all of the time and he’ll come over and say, ‘I ran this play with Brett (Favre),’ and this and that. And I’ll ask him how Brett approached it or whoever it may be. It’s the same with Brad. He had Brett for a year or two in Minnesota. I’d be crazy not to use those guys as resources and leading up to this they’ve been a huge asset for me.”
(On how fast you have to get rid of the ball against Philadelphia’s defense)- “Obviously, their d-line is sold. You’ve got to get the ball out quick, but you’ve got to protect it. I think that’s there’s a certain order to win. You’ve got to be able run the football, you’ve got to be able to throw the ball down the field and you’ve got to do the small things, but it all starts with protecting especially with our front five including our backs. The ball has to come out quicker at times. You’ve got to pick your spots to take your shots, but I think that’s a very good front seven.””

I’ve said before that I think Browns fans have already taken Trent Richardson for granted. In a lot of ways, even without seeing anything from him other than some training camp time, Browns fans have just plugged him in for somewhere around Peyton Hillis numbers pre-Madden. Really, what else should fans do with a guy drafted number three overall? Even with all that Browns fans...
The Cleveland Browns say Brandon Weeden is ready for some football, but is he? Weeden has to face the team that gave him the most trouble this Sunday as the Cleveland Browns face the pass rush of the Philadelphia Eagles, this is the team that can cause Brandon Weeden to lose the football with hits that weren’t that bad. This week the Browns say Weeden was faced with a lot of pressure...

Browns' head coach and offensive coordinator are excited about rookie QB Brandon Weeden's demeanor and skill set as he is set to begin his NFL career Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles.
BEREAThere are several Browns players who will make their NFL debuts on Sunday , including top picks pick Trent Richardson, Mitchell Schwartz and Josh Gordon.
However, probably the biggest one will be the debut of quarterback Brandon Weeden, the 22nd overall pick from Oklahoma State.
Weeden knows this is not the same stage as when he made his professional debut as a pitcher in...
Cleveland Browns fans are tired of waiting and hoping for someday. The Browns had the fourth youngest team in the NFL last year; and they are going to be even younger in 2012. Fifteen rookies including QB Brandon Weeden and RB Trent Richardson made the team to go along with 11 second-year players and seven players entering their third year. That means that 62% (33 players) of...
According to team beat writer Scott Petrak, Browns running back Trent Richardson (knee) is expected to play this Sunday, Browns coach Pat Shurmur said.Fantasy Spin:Richardson hasn't had any setbacks or swelling. Expect him to get 15 touches Sunday and do enough with those touches to be a solid No. 2 RB option.
According to Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal, Cleveland Browns running back Trent Richardson participated in Wednesday’s practice.

With Richardson practicing today, I believe there’s a good chance he’ll at least get a few carries in Sunday’s opener. There’s no way...

Rookies, QB Brandon Weeden and RB Trent Richardson figure heavily into the future of the Cleveland Browns. Step-one begins Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles.
There is nothing in the world Browns fans want more than a win. The question is will head coach Pat Shurmur place the future of Trent Richardson’s professional football career in jeopardy just to make himself look better and get the fans a win? Lets face it Pat Shurmur isn’t the brightest bulb in the pack when it comes to head football coaches. This is the guy that was in a hurry...
This week was again Rick and Craig mostly talking about the Browns. Again, despite my monitoring, Rick seemed a bit low in the mix. It is totally listenable, but we’ll keep working on making it better.

Trent Richardson is really important (duh!)

The 2012 NFL season has not even kicked off yet, but the injuries are starting to pile up for several fantasy football players. While most of these injuries are not season-ending, as far as fantasy football is concerned people do need to take them into consideration if they are still preparing for a draft. Here’s a look at some advice for a few of the top players in the league...
