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’m asked of. If I throw five touchdowns and no interceptions or four interceptions and no touchdowns, I feel like I want to give my team a chance to win. It’s a long year. It’s a long season. Obviously, I don’t want anyone to remember the first one because we’e going to turn it around and play again in seven days and this one is in the past. Unfortunately, we can’t do anything about it. It stings — it’s going to sting for a few days. Part of my makeup is that I have a pretty short memory and I’m not going to let anything get to me. I’m going to continue to work, bust my tail and give this team a chance to win.

– Cleveland Browns rookie quarterback Brandon Weeden following Sunday’s 17-16 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. Weeden threw four interceptions while completing only 16 of his  34 pass attempts, recording a passer rating of 5.1.
