Found September 10, 2012 on No Guts, No Glory:
In case you missed it, here is the stat line Browns rookie quarterback Brandon Weeden put up against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday 12-35 for 118 yards with 1 interception, 1 fumble and a quarterback rating of 5.1 And though it was clear from the moment that Weeden got caught under the America flag during pregame that Weeden was in for a rough day, he insisted to Bud Shaw of The Plain Dealer that he wasn’t overwhelmed in his first NFL start. He just needs to play better. “The outcome wasn’t what I wanted,” Weeden said, “but I wasn’t overwhelmed.” “I’ll be the first one in the building tomorrow [to watch film].” Browns coach Pat Shumur also attempted to downplay Weeden’s dismal performance by adding that he wasn’t disappointed by Weeden at all. “I wasn’t disappointed in the way he played quarterback,” Shurmur said. “I was disappointed in just a lot of the bad plays we had.” Look, Brandon Weeden is a rookie quarterback so he will struggle. But when you look

  • He was lost, his accuracy wasn't even close. He can't handle pressure. The offensive line was alittle better than last year. Management was terrible. Colt McCoy became gun shy last year because of knock downs. What makes management think Brandon won't become gun shy. Why was all the blame put on Colt. I think it was obvious. Management will never admit a mistake.
  • I am sick and tired of failure by Cleveland quarterbacks. Will it ever end? 5.1 rating, Weeden you suck.

Weeden: We’re Going to Turn it Around

As an athlete, even though you wish you’re going to be all up, there are going to be some downs. Fortunately for me, I’ve had games where I haven’t played as well but I felt like I had given my team a chance to win. And today, there were times where I didn’t really do that; that’s the part that gets me the most. I really take a lot of pride in giving whatever it is I...

Five Reasons to Believe Brandon Weeden Can Be Better

I decided after my exercise in recapping this afternoon to figure out some ways to look at the bright side. It is in my nature, anyway, so why not? So, here are five (non-slideshow) reasons to help us all think that Brandon Weeden’s first game as a pro was something of a fluke and he can be better. 5. The Eagles defense is really good. Nnamdi Asomugha and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie...

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,...

Terrible Tuesdays: Because the careening dumpster fire that is the Holmgren/Shurmur regime and the 2012 Cleveland Browns is too much to clean up after in just one day.

Rick and Craig are back at it again and no we still don’t have an opener. Sorry, I was too busy bringing a new child into the world. Excuse me. Get off my back, ok? Anyway, Rick and I talked about the Browns and Buckeyes mostly. As soon as I get TD or Jon on we’ll get some Tribe in the action. Scott will make an appearance soon too, I’m thinking. Joe Haden’s suspension Pat...
