Browns receiver Josh Gordon has made the fantasy football sleepers list. Even though Gordon will miss the first 2 games of the regular season, he comes in at no. 6 on the list. Not only do they given Gordon plenty of respect for his receiving talent, they kind of slam Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden by saying, It’s just a shame that he doesn’t have a better quarterback throwing to him.

Browns fans are excited about this upcoming season. They all think Weeden is the next best thing to sliced bread. For some reason the people who comprised this lest don’t see it that way.  Weeden has been reported to be practicing very well this year.

He has to complete passes all over the practice field. The thing is there is no one putting any pressure on him. Once the season starts all that can change in a hurry. The Browns new coaching staff is going to have to see how Weeden can respond to the pressure once preseason starts.

The new head coach of the Browns has yet to name his starting quarterback for the 2013 season despite the fact that Weeden has taken most of the snaps in mini camps with the first team. It doesn’t mean anything to the coaching staff until they see how Weeden performs under pressure.

This has been Weeden’s problem throughout his college and professional career, he has yet to prove he won’t fold under pressure. Perhaps the people who wrote this Fantasy Football Sleepers report know that.

Maybe with a better quarterback, they would have rated Gordon higher than the 6th spot.

    Weeden I believe has the skill set to be very effective and hopefully with a better offensive scheme in place he wont be pressured, which you are right is his weakness. If Norv/Chud can get a offense around Weeden that can be effective with better blocking schemes and better routes for receivers and TE’s become rather effective I think Weeden can have a very good season, if its more of the predictable B.S. we seen from Shurmur, prepare for a horrible season.

    LG says that Weeden makes mistakes under pressure, well I read an article that Rob Ryan says that when they beat New England its because of the pressure they put on Tom Brady and the Denver coach blamed all of Peyton Manning’s interceptions on pressure put on him. So LG has put Weeden in the same class as Brady and Manning. Thanks LG

      I think there is a disconnect here. What Peyton Manning and Tom Brady see as pressure can’t be compared to what brings down Brandon Weeden. And especialy what it takes to knock him out of a game. Come on guys this is a QB with so much situational awareness that a Flag was able to take him down.

        LMAO you are right…..

        Peyton Manning was 1-15 his first year, Tom Brady got to sit and watch and learn. Weeden is not Manning or Brady but all quarterbacks have problems with pressure. If Manning was 1-15 his rookie year in Cleveland you experts would have run him out of town. Thankfully you don’t own the Browns and never will.

    Gordon has bigger problems than who is going to throw him the ball, such as is his butt even going to be in a game to catch a ball? Let’s see here, drugs! Incredible lack of judgement! ( Miami and labitch).funny thing about talent is that it is fragile and can fade based on how you protect it or don’t. Drugs and parties with people who have no character! These are not the actions of a boy who takes himself or his team seriously! This team needs men! Not boys. My fear with Gordon is that he will end up being a major disciplinary distraction to a team that I believe is on the threshold of a new and winning era.
