Weeden caught under flag during pregame

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: (via mocksession.com) As SBNation points out, Weeden is clearly a patriot, and has draped himself in the stars and...

Brandon Weeden Gets Caught Under American Flag Before the Game

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...

Cleveland Browns Week 1 thoughts

Follow @ClevelandDTR By: Eric Grinnell Week 1 of the Cleveland Browns 2012 season is officially in the books. I’ll get into specifics below, but I think the quick summary of the game is that this was one of the most impressive defensive performances by the Browns since the return, but conversely, one of the poorest offensive performances. 1. Let’s start with the good...

Noted America Enthusiast Brandon Weeden Gets Trapped Under American Flag Before Game (Video)

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...

Jason Whitlock: Andy Reid is “a moron” for not running more against Browns

I can’t say that I wouldn’t be unhappy with Andy Reid’s play selection Sunday if I were an Eagles fan. It’s interesting to read such fallout for the coaches of the winning team. Leave it to Whitlock to resort to name-calling. At some point that probably detracts from credibility in most people’s minds. In a tight game the Eagles led for much of the day, Reid waited until...

Trent Richardson trucks Kurt Coleman, sends helmet flying

In Sunday's Eagles-Browns game, Browns rookie running back Trent Richardson absolutely demolished Eagles safety Kurt Coleman. Richardson lowered his head and smashed it directly into Coleman's head, sending the defensive back's helmet flying as Richardson picked up nine yards on the play. He'd be stopped behind the line on the next play, and the Browns would...

Eagles 17, Browns 16

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...

Cleveland fans need to give Weeden a season

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 numbing mediocrity.  There's no question Weeden's performance yesterday was brutally bad. Either the coaching staff did not prepare him...

A Disturbing Trend Continues

“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."
