Waiting For Next Year:
The twitter brigade in Berea kept us informed today that rookie RB Trent Richardson was not on the practice field again, and that QB Brandon Weeden isn’t expected to play at all on Thursday.
Still no Trent Richardson for #Browns. Expected him on field by this point this week. I’m sure we’ll get the usual “he’s making progress.”

Not sure that Richardson would have gotten much accomplished today, as the team prepares for their final preseason game against the Bears. The Browns say he is “on target” to play in the opener.
Other news from Berea today was that Brandon Weeden will not play in the final preseason game.
“Starting quarterback Brandon Weeden won’t play in the Browns’ preseason finale Thursday night against the Chicago Bears, coach Pat Shurmur said this afternoon during his post-practice news conference. Colt McCoy will start, and fellow quarterbacks Seneca Wallace and Thaddeus Lewis also will play, Shurmur said.”
Not that anyone expected him to play much, but it could be argued the first unit could certainly use some work.
BEST OF MAXIM
On one hand, no one will ever go broke questioning the legitimacy and competence of the Holmgren/Shurmur regime. It’s easy enough to see pretty much any decision they make as resulting primarily from some combination of arrogance and fear, including the one to sit Brandon Weeden in tonight’s final preseason tuneup. Of course they don’t want anyone to get hurt tonight, but worse...
I think [Brandon Weeden] is very prepared. I think he’s had an outstanding camp. I thought he had an outstanding offseason. Really he’s kind of improved every day. For a guy that’s going through this for the first time as a pro, I think he’s very ready.

Browns rookie quarterback Brandon Weeden knows he needs to get a grip.
Weeden has already fumbled three times during the exhibition season, losing the ball twice and costing Cleveland points with his turnovers. In Friday's 27-10 loss to Philadelphia, Weeden fumbled twice in the first quarter. The first one wasn't his fault as his protection broke down on a botched screen...
Pat Shurmur announced today that Brandon Weeden was going to sit out the fourth pre-season game this week. It has created debate all over sports talk radio and twitter as people try to figure out what their stance is on the topic. On the one hand, Brandon Weeden and the starting offense might want to have something in their memories that’s a bit more positive than what they did...
BEREA, Ohio (AP) -- Browns rookie quarterback Brandon Weeden knows he needs to get a grip.
Weeden has already fumbled three times during the exhibition season, losing the ball twice and costing Cleveland points with his turnovers. In Friday's 27-10 loss to Philadelphia, Weeden fumbled twice in the first quarter. The first one wasn't his fault as his protection broke down...
No Brandon Weeden and potentially no fans inside of the stadium despite being forced to pay regular season prices, but that won’t stop us from analyzing the game from the comfort of our own homes. The home stretch before the start of the regular season, the Browns will be forced to use tonight’s contest to widdle their roster from 75 to 53 by the close of business tomorrow. You...
I have evaluated all the quarterback situations around the league and I have made my final conclusion. That is that, Brandon Weeden will perform better than any rookie quarterback in the NFL Draft. I know everyone is wondering about Robert Griffin III or Andrew Luck, but I think Weeden can be the best.
Weeden is far more mature then all of these quarterbacks, he understands the...
Cleveland Browns head coach Pat Shurmur has announced that rookie Brandon Weeden will sit on Thursday, giving the nod for the final preseason game to Colt McCoy.
The Browns announced weeks ago that Weeden was the starter, and typically starting quarterbacks sit out the final preseason game. But Weeden isn’t your typical starter. He’s struggled the past two preseason games and...
After 3 preseason games the Cleveland Browns sit at 2-1, and what does that mean? Absolutely nothing! Preseason games are where teams practice situational scenarios that they’ve worked on in practice. This allows them to implement exactly what they practiced for weeks in actual game action.
So what should you expect from a preseason game? You want to see your team have continued...
