Brandon Weeden has one of the worst games I have ever seen from a Cleveland Browns quarterback. I have watched Browns football since 1963 and I don’t think I have ever seen a game when a starting quarterback played the entire game and ended with a rating of 5.1. Weeden threw 4 interceptions and fumbled the ball 2 times. The guy went 12 of 35 for 118 yards. The Eagles did everything but gift wrap and hand Brandon Weeden his first game in the NFL. Lets face the reality here people, ,the Cleveland Browns problems weren’t all Colt McCoy’s fault. Brandon Weeden is not going to help the Cleveland Browns win football games with the offensive system head coach Pat Shurmur is using, it isn’t Weeden’s game and Browns president Mike Holmgren was stupid to force his G.M. Tom Heckert into picking Brandon Weeden.
Unless the Cleveland Browns change their entire offensive system, they aren’t going to win many games this year. Brandon Weeden played terrible and so did some of the Browns receivers. Colt McCoy should have been put in the game to get the Browns the win today. The Browns defense kept the team in the game for 58 minutes. It was the defense that got the Browns their only touchdown on the day. Weeden has yet to find the end-zone in his professional career and as far as all this arm accuracy we keep hearing about, the Browns must not have wanted to have him show it yet.
Brandon Weeden is a failed major league pitcher who thinks he can come into the NFL and make a name for himself, what we saw today is the reason Weeden left baseball. His had an open receiver in the end-zone early in the game and he couldn’t find him. He had an open receiver running down the sidelines again he could not find him. As a matter of fact going 12 for 35 with 4 interceptions you can already see Weeden couldn’t find much. Lets take one of those interceptions away from Weeden, he did hit Little right in his hands but like the Little we all came to love he couldn’t catch the ball and it was tipped then intercepted.
People think the Browns offense needs time and they are right. The problem is the Brown don’t have time the season is here and we are already 0-1. Weeden couldn’t find the end-zone today when the Eagles painted the path for him. He sucks. The Browns need a line too, but that is another story in itself. The big story on the day is a 28-year-old rookie quarterback who finished the day with a 5.1 quarterback rating. Yes he is a rookie, so is RGIII and Andrew Luck and nether of them sucked like Brandon Weeden did today….
