Brandon Weeden is getting very pissed off about losing, that is a good thing. The fact that he has never been part of a losing team has gotten under Mr. Weeden’s skin. After all he is the leader of the Cleveland Browns offense, he touches the ball on every play and some of his mistakes have helped the Cleveland Browns to a 0-5 record. Take the fact Brandon Weeden can’t complete a full game in the NFL without throwing an interception. This isn’t going to help the Browns win.
Brandon Weeden threw 2 interceptions in New York, one was a stupid pass when he should have thrown the ball out-of-bounds. He knew it and the world knew it as soon as he let it go. It was one of the worse passes Weeden ever threw since coming to the NFL. All the losses aren’t Brandon Weeden’s fault. The Browns defense has failed to show up to 3 of the games the Browns lost this season. If Brandon Weeden was indeed the leader he claims to be he would find a way to talk to his defense and get them to play the way they played in the Philly and Ravens game. You can’t win football games in the NFL if your defense doesn’t give the 100% it takes to stop your opponents.
The Cleveland Browns have a lot of problems on this team. They are not all Brandon Weeden’s problems but he does need to find a way to pull his team together and get them to play as a team on both sides of the ball. Weeden has to stop turning the ball over too. You cannot give a guy like Eli Manning extra chances to put points on the score board. Turn-overs kill you in the NFL and Weeden is quickly learning the hard way.
Weeden has the chance to prove he can be the leader of this Cleveland Browns team. He has to find a way to rally his team behind him to get their first win. He has to get the rest of the team as pissed off as he is about losing. The Browns take on the Bengals next and their defense isn’t that good. If Weeden and his Browns can stop the turn-overs and the Browns defense can play the way they played against Philly and the Ravens they could pull off a win.
Weeden has to get his guys on the same page before Sunday.
