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.
