Brandon Weeden after the Browns’ 24-14 loss to the Buffalo Bills-

“I think, and I’m speaking offensively, we started too slow. I think after a week like we had last week, that’s disappointing. I think that’s the difference in some of these games. I think you just can’t be where we were in the first half, 0-5 or 0-6 on third down and doing some things early and expect to win many games. We’ve got to start faster and that’s on us. That pretty much sums it up. You put yourself in a hole, 14-0; it’s kind of tough to dig it out. Especially against an offense like that, that spreads the ball out and throws it well. It’s tough sledding.”

(On the pressure he was under in the pocket and whether or not it was hard finding open receivers)- “They have a great front four. I said that during the week, I think they have guys who can really get after the passer. I think, throughout the game they really started doing some things to those guys up front. I think overall, our guys did a great job. I think our offensive line gave me time to throw, there were some tight coverages; some tight windows to throw into but I think overall my offensive line did great. The touchdown pass to Travis (WR Travis Benjamin), you know they got to him a little late. But, I felt pretty good other then some play action stuff as far as the protection went, all day.”

(On the main problems on the early series where the offense couldn’t convert on third down)- “I think a number of things. One, you have to give them a little bit of credit. They made tackles at the line of scrimmage; they were coming off blocks and doing a good job in the run game. When we beat them with the pass, they did a great job of tackling. So you got to give them credit. They played a hard fought game. They tackled well and did some things there. But I think that, without seeing it, you know a lot has happened since then. I think those are the kind of the things that stood out to me. Like I said, went three-and-out however many times there to start the game. That’s tough.”

(On his opinion of his play)- “If you take away the last throw, I think it was a solid day. You know really, I mean I threw the ball where it needed to go all day. I felt extremely comfortable in the pocket. I felt my reads were really good. I felt like I threw the ball accurately. I felt like I had a good day. I mean we take away that last throw. Me and Ben (TE Ben Watson) were just talking about it, he knew I was coming to him, because the guy dropped out and the guy ran right through it. Neither one of us saw him and he made a great play, but you take away that throw, it was a solid day at work. With all that being said, the most important thing is we didn’t win this game, so to me, I didn’t do enough.”

(On fighting through an 0-3 start)- “You know you just have to keep your head down, don’t get distracted by what’s going on around outside this locker room, and keep grinding and doing what were doing. The simple matter of fact is that we have a short week this week. So even though we lost and it’s a tough pill to swallow. We got to turn around and as crazy as it is we have to turn around to play on Thursday night. This locker room has got a lot of level-headed, good sound quality guys and we’re going to stick together. That’s what you’ve got to do. None of us want to lose, a lot of us have come from other places that haven’t lost a lot of games, we’ve got to continue to fight, and stick together and stay positive. Like I said, it’s a long season. You can’t get distracted by what’s going on around you. “
