Well, no one said playing N.F.L. Football was going to be easy, for some they make it look easy, others like the Cleveland Browns 29-year-old Q.B. Brandon Weeden it hasn’t come easy. For each fan that thinks Weeden is the guy there are a few that say they don’t think so. One fan had this to say, ” There’s a word for Weedon. SISSY!” He must be talking about the fact that Weeden is afraid to stand in the pocket until the last second and take the big hit. Weeden has been described as easily rattled when it comes to pressure. Most fans see Weeden falls apart when faced with serious pressure. If the Browns opponent pressures Weeden at the start of the game, some say Weeden is shot for the day.
Lets take a look at Weeden’s numbers. I remember fans getting so excited because Weeden threw for over 300 yards. The fact is Brandon Weeden has only threw for over 300 yards 2 times in the 12 games he has started. If you take a look at Andrew Lucks stats you would see he has 4 games with over 300 passing yards and one game with over 400 passing yards. That’s a total of 5 games out of 12 where Luck has thrown for over 300 yards passing. Then we could talk about RGIII. He too has played 12 games and has 3 games over 300 yards passing, RGIII also has 642 yards rushing in 2012. Weeden has 72 yards rushing and Andrew Luck has 183 yards rushing….
Now lets look at wins and losses. Brandon Weeden has three of them in 2012, Luck has 7 wins, RGIII has 5 wins, Ryan Tannahill has 5 wins, Wilson in Seattle has 6 wins and he was drafted in the third round. Weeden was a first round pick 22nd overall…What a joke that is, the Cleveland Browns used a pick that could have been used on someone who could have helped the defensive secondary on Brandon Weeden who has 3 wins in the NFL…..Now lets talk about how many football games Weeden started where he has less than 200 yards passing…..Weeden has 4 games with less than 200 yards passing. That is double the games he has with over 300 yards. In the 4 games I am talking about Weeden has one with 118 yards,one with 129 yards, last weeks game where he was handed 8 turnovers by the Browns defense he only threw for 158 yards and in one other game Weeden had 176 yards.
Now looking back to 2011 Colt McCoy had a game where he threw for 350 yards against the Tennessee Titans and McCoy only had one game where he threw for less than 150 yards in all the games he played in 2011. If you look at the numbers I can’t really see how drafting Brandon Weeden was worth wasting a 22 overall pick in the 2012 draft. He hasn’t made the Cleveland Browns into a winning team and the fan who made this statement probably has a point…… There’s a word for Weedon. SISSY! That isn’t going help the Browns win is it???
We should have seen the writing on the wall when Brandon Weeden got sacked by the American Flag at eh Browns season opener.
