Interesting even a Philly fan who attended the Browns season opener observed how bad Brandon Weeden played, he said “Weeden sucks”. The same fan went on to say if the Browns have problems producing offensively in Cincinnati the Browns will pull Weeden and play Colt McCoy in the second half of the Bengals game, he also said if the Browns did use McCoy in the second half they would win the game today. It could be wishful thinking on his part as well as other Browns fans. Pat Shurmur has stuck to his bad plan all week when asked about his starting quarterback, his reply was always Weeden is our starting quarterback. Many people thought if Shurmur would have used McCoy last week the Browns would have pulled off a win against the Eagles. Even this Philly fan said the Eagles didn’t deserve to win the game. It is almost funny how everyone around the NFL can see the Browns made a mistake naming Weeden the starter except for the man responsible for doing so. Pat Shumur has a storied past of ...

Browns Still Win-Less Despite A Much Improved Brandon Weeden

If I didn’t see it with my own eyes I may not believe it, Brandon Weeden the man who had a 5.1 quarterback rating in his first NFL regular season game turned things around today to silence some of his credits. Sure it was only one game as Weeden himself would be quick to point out, nonetheless Brandon Weeden looked like a much improved quarterback. Weeden would throw the first...

Brandon Weeden Sets Browns Rookie Mark for Passing Yards

From the Browns- “Rookie quarterback Brandon Weeden completed 26 of 37 passes (70.3%) for 322 yards and his first two career passing touchdowns. He finished with a 114.9 rating. His 322 passing yards were a Browns rookie record surpassing the previous mark of 310 set by Eric Zeier at Cincinnati on October 29, 1995.” MOST PASSING YARDS IN A GAME BY A BROWNS ROOKIE      ...

Browns 28-Year-Old Rookie Brandon Weeden Hits His First NFL Touchdown Pass

Brandon Weeden finally found the end-zone with one of his passes, it was a short pass underneath the running back Trent Richardson who was able to beat the Bengals defenders to the end-zone for 23 yards late in the first quarter of the Bengals game. Weeden didn’t throw a touchdown for the entire preseason for the Cleveland Browns. Although it wasn’t one of those long accurate...

Cleveland Browns Curse: Brandon Weeden Fails To Stop The Bleeding

It's another gloomy day in Cleveland. After Sunday's road loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, the Cleveland Browns drop to 0-2 on the year.For most teams in the NFL, this wouldn't be any reason to press the panic button and jump ship.But the Browns have now lost their last eight contests, dating back to November of last year when they won a nail-biter over the Jacksonville...

Your Week 2 Early Games Open Thread

On Friday, an unfeeling Internet troll vandalized Brandon Weeden’s Wikipedia page by adding that the rookie quarterback’s nickname is Doopy Pantz. Now, it takes very little to make such a cruel tweak to a Wikipedia entry and the change has already been undone by another user. Furthermore, the derisive nom de scat was most likely applied as the result of one atrocious performance...

Shurmurball Week 2: It gets better?

It can’t get any worse for Brandon Weeden and the Browns offense today in Cincinnati against the Queen City Kitties. But can it be just as bad? And the defense? Did it contain the Eagles last week or did the Eagles contain themselves? The Week 2 NFL picks are here and the rest is your Shurmurball Week 2 support group open thread. Tweet

Richardson and Weeden complete rare feat

Cleveland Browns 1st-round picks Trent Richardson and Brandon Weedenpulled off a rare feat for a pair of rookies on Sunday afternoon against the Bengals. Hopefully Weeden isn't the next Tony Banks They became the first pair of rookie teammates to throw for 300 yards and rush for 100 yards in the same game since 1996. The down side to this accomplishment? The previous duo doesn’t...

Eagles DE Babin fined for roughing Weeden

Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Jason Babin was fined $15,750 for roughing Cleveland Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden in last Sunday's season opener, according to Philly.com. Babin was fined for "unnecessarily" driving Weeden into the ground, even though no penalty was called on the play. He received a fine on a similar play last year for roughing the passer...

Browns move ball but defense dominated by Bengals

“The Browns’ young secondary battled, but was strained by the loss of Haden to his suspension and Brown to a neck stinger.” — Mary Kay Cabot “Last week [against the Ravens] was just bad. This week some of the [Browns' longer gains] were checkdowns that we missed.” — Bengals cornerback Leon Hall “I wish I had a dollar for every hour I put in this week.” — Brandon...

Cleveland Browns vs. Cincinnati Bengals: Hero and Zero of the Game

In a game that was supposed to be one of the more boring games in the NFL this week the clash of Ohio turned out to be a high scoring barn burner.  Both teams wanted to come out and show that last weeks performances were just anomalies and they could really play. In a game with many heroes and no zeros I thought we would do an ode to Hockey giving out the three stars of the game...

Cleveland Browns Find Positives In Loss Against Bengals

I was able to take in the Browns at Bengals game this afternoon from the 30-yard line at Paul Brown Stadium, and despite a tough division loss, the Browns looked better than I thought they would.Defensively, Cleveland took a step backwards, giving up 27 points (the other Bengals TD was a punt return).  This was to be expected with star cornerback Joe Haden out due to a suspension...

The Cleveland Browns: Ten observations from the Browns vs Bengals game

  Brandon Weeden played like a 28 year old 1st round draft pick, and that’s a compliment. He broke rookie QB passing records, and that list includes Bernie Kosar, Brian Sipe, Otto Graham and Eric Zeier to bring the list and the accomplishment back to reality. I was one of the biggest screamers that if he did not improve he would have to get yanked by week 6.  After a 26-37...

Grantland fantasy advice? Trade Trent Richardson “NOW”

If Rey Maualuga didn’t provide enough motivation, maybe someone can point Trent Richardson to Grantland to see what they think of his prospects as a fantasy player. He and Weeden get skewered in talking up this week’s matchup with the Bengals. I warned you last week about T-Rich, and I will tell you again: TRADE HIM NOW! Don’t read too much into Baltimore’s manhandling of...

Idle chatter: A pair of long seasons ahead?

1. That we keep using the word "historical" with the, um, achievements of the Browns offense can not be a good thing. How do the Browns go about getting it fixed? McManamon: Hope. Thats basically what the Browns are relying on at this point. Hope that Trent Richardson gets better quickly and revives the moribund running game. Hope that Brandon Weedens opener was just an...
