The Cleveland Browns open their regular season tomorrow at home against the Miami Dolphins. Greg Little will be the Browns number one receiver and we all know how good this guy can be. Little has had problems with drops since coming to the Browns.
He has greatly improved over the past 2 seasons. He worked with Weeden over the off season and they seem to both be on the same page coming into the 2013 season. Little is a beast when he gets into the open field.
Fans just have to hope the Browns can keep the pressure off of Weeden long enough for him to deliver the ball to Little. If Weeden has time to throw he will do a good job. It is when he is pressured he tends to make some mistakes.
Little is a big target, at 6’2″ he has the ability to beat some of the defensive backs in the league, he also runs very well once he gets the ball. If the Browns are going to be successful in the home opener it will be because their offense can control the pace of play.
This is going to be a good test to see how much the work Weeden and Little did in the off-season pays off. The Browns are have only won one opener since returning to the NFL in 1999 and that was in 2000.
If they can find a way to win this home opener there is little doubt that the fans will have a great week following a win. It is going to come down to a Little luck and some solid game planning.
