Brandon Weeden played terrible for the Cleveland Browns today against the Baltimore Ravens. Weeden threw 2 interceptions and couldn’t hit an open receiver if it were to save his mother’s life today. Brandon Weeden gave the world a good display of why he never made it as a Major League pitcher. Ssure, Weeden can throw the ball hard, he just doesn’t have any control over where it is going to go. Some fans in Cleveland are all excited thinking the Browns have finally got their franchise quarterback. These are obviously what it takes to be a consistent NFL quarterback. Brandon Weeden is far from consistent. The only thing you can count on Weeden to do with any consistency is turn the ball over by throwing bad passes, he has been able to do that since coming into the NFL. Weeden now is only one interception short of the NFL lead for throwing Interceptions.
Don’t worry all you Weeden fans I am sure if he continues to start for the Browns for the rest of the 2012 season he will control that stat all by himself by the season’s end. Lets take a look at the great performance Brandon Weeden gave the Browns fans today. First pass of the game Weeden overthrows little by at least 10 yards, the Browns go 3 and out on their opening drive…
2nd series Weeden throws first pass to T-rich who gets 9 and then a hand off T-Rich Fumbles and Schwartz recovers it, on 3rd and 1 Weeden misses a wide open Chris Ogbonnaya with a over throw and to compound it, the Browns take an offensive Pass interference call. The Browns punt That is 2 majorly overthrown balls by Weeden in 1st 2 series. If he hits Ogbonnaya it was off to the races.
On a critical drive in the second quarter Weeden throws the ball well behind Trent Richardson he was open, Weeden missed him by a mile….Where is that highly accurate arm all these people talk about with Brandon Weeden? He missed Richardson by at least 5 yards on the throw.
On another 3rd down and nine the Browns throw the ball for 3 yards to Alex Smith and the Ravens cover for only a 3 yard gain. Dawson sent in for field goal. Ravens lead 14-3 Browns couldn’t get in the end-zone…. Brandon Weeden has now played 2 full games without throwing a touchdown pass. He couldn’t get it done last week and he couldn’t get it done this week either. I could go on and on all day here with each series that Weeden played today. But instead lets have a look at Brandon Weeden’s numbers for the game.
Weeden completed only 20 of the 37 passes he threw today. Sure the guys may have dropped some, the fact is many of the passes were poorly thrown balls. Weeden only had 176 yards passing and threw 2 interceptions. He did make a nice completion to the Browns line backer D’Qwell Jackson while he was sitting on the Browns bench today. On that play Mr. Weeden had all day to complete a pass but failed to see his wide open tight end and threw the ball away.
Weeden missed wide open guys all day. The game hasn’t slowed down for Weeden and he is still having trouble being able to see the field. The Browns are now 2 & 7 and it looks like the only game the Browns may win in the AFC North this season is the one they already took from the Bengals with the giant contribution the Cleveland Defense made in that one. There is little excuses for missing this many passes today to wide open receivers.
Brandon Weeden must be hearing footsteps back there. He could have won this game if he could have found the end-zone a couple of times today. Weeden could find the strike zone in M.L.B. and now he can’t hit a body that is 6 foot tall or taller and weighing over 200lbs. Now I for one can completely understand why the Cleveland Browns general Manager Tom Heckert didn’t want to use the 22nd overall pick the in the NFL draft on a guy named Brandon Weeden. The scouting reports were perfect and Holmgren should have listened to them.
After all Brandon Weeden sucked big time in the senior bowl and it surely showed it was the receivers at Oklahoma State that made Brandon Weeden look good. Not Weden making the Receivers look good.
