The words had just barely passed his lips when Cleveland Browns rookie quarterback Brandon Weeden began having second thoughts.
"I think it was a solid day," he said following the 24-14 loss to Buffalo on Sunday. "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 I like I threw the ball accurately. I felt like I had a good day."
His words raised a few eyebrows, including those of coach Pat Shurmur. Not only did Weeden's numbers (27-43-237 yards, TD, 2 INTs) scream mediocrity, but Shurmur didn't appreciate the idea of his quarterback claiming a good day when the offense managed just 14 points and his team fell to 0-3.
"I would be disappointed if he was walking around saying he played well," Shurmur said. "We've all got to play better."
Shurmur isn't the only one disappointed he said that. Weeden is, too.
"I thought about it before I walked out of the [interview] room," he said. "First and foremost, we didn't win the game, so I didn't do enough to help us win the game. I shouldn't have said I played well. I should have said we didn't win, so I didn't play well, looking back." Source: CBS Sports

The task of beating a more talented divisional opponent won’t be any easier for the Browns now that Mohamed Massaquoi has officially been ruled out of the game. Earlier this week the Browns seemed at least somewhat hopeful that Massaquoi would be available. Or maybe they wanted the Ravens to think they were hopeful. Either way, he is now out.
Additionally, the Browns will have...

Brandon Weeden the Browns new 28-year-old rokkie quarterback who will turn 29 on the 14th of October will learn a lesson in Humility come Thursday night. The instructor undoubtedly will be none other than the 17 year veteran Ray Lewis and his Baltimore Ravens defense. Have you ever listened to one of Weeden’s post game press conferences? The guy is all about...
The fan reaction to the return of the regular NFL referees in time for the Cleveland Browns to play the Baltimore Ravens is funny. While some fans where excited to see the return of the regular NFL refs, other said the Browns are going to need a lot more than the regular NFL refs to get a win against the Baltimore Ravens. The NFL extended the deal for 8 years to bring the referees...
The 0-3 Browns will return to primetime with a visit to Baltimore to take on the 2-1 Ravens.
This game will be the first following the end of the NFL referee lockout, with real referees on tap to officiate tonight. So this means no more complaints, no matter how valid, can be attributed to poor officiating!
After a terrible performance in Week 1, it looked like...
Brandon Weeden has been getting better game in and game out. After a very lousy 5 percent quarterback rating in week 1, Weeden is becoming a better QB. After last week’s performance against Buffalo where he had the Browns in the game until the very end of the fourth quarter, Weeden seems to be getting a better understanding. I expect Weeden to put up big numbers...

We can pretty much guarantee that the Browns will be playing the Ravens under the watchful eye of replacement officials on Thursday night, but it seems there might be a chance that the regular officials will be on hand for this weekend’s games.
So we’ll just have to see how badly NFL owners want to move away from the existing pension plans.

Fans around the league might not remember the Sunday game anymore, now that a wild Week 3 has been capped by one of the biggest referee mistakes in history.

The Ravens will be playing their fourth game in 17 days, and third primetime game in their first four Thursday night when they take on the division rival Browns.
Cleveland is winless and has a rookie quarterback and running back combination in the backfield.
The winless part won’t change for Cleveland because the Ravens’ defense will harass Brandon Weeden into mistakes. Weeden...
With the NFL reaching an agreement with the officials to return to refereeing the league, it has kind of gotten lost in the shuffle that there is an actual game tonight. And at first glance, you’d think any match up consisting of the Ravens, who look like rue Super Bowl contenders in the early going, facing off against the hapless Cleveland Browns would be a pushover. But there...
