Browns Quarterback Brandon Weeden said he had a great practice Wednesday in the Cleveland Browns final training camp session. Now Weeden needs to take that to the field. It is a little easier to find a guy like Mohamed Massaquo in 11 on 11 drills when Mo Mass knows he isn’t going to take the big hit. That has been a big part of the Browns game-time problems, the Cleveland quarterbacks would find their receivers only to watch them drop the ball. This season we have already seen some of that take place in the preseason.
With Weeden finding his timing and leading his receivers on the run maybe the Browns will break through. If Weeden faces the pass rush he could have the tendency to throw the ball away too. It is UN-clear at the present time just how much playing time Weeden will get in the Eagles preseason game this Friday night. It would however be a valid test of Weeden’s competency as the Browns starting Q.B.. The Eagles have a great pass rush this season and it would show two things, first it wold allow us to take a good look at the Browns offensive line, second it would show us if Weeden is going to crack under the pressure.
Brandon Weeden has yet to face a team this preseason that can bring the pass rush like the Eagles can, if Shurmur plans to play Weeden for at least the first quarter it could answer the question if Weeden can stand in there without panicking and get the job done. Training camp where Shurmur limits the hitting is one thing, Game time with a killer Pass Rush is another.
