How many 29-year-old rookie quarterbacks can say they got their first NFL win on their 29th birthday? Better yet, how many 29-year-old quarterbacks are there in the NFL? Today the Cleveland Browns got their first win on the 2012 season beating the Cincinnati Bengals 34-24. Weeden didn’t have his best stuff and he showed it is OK to be lucky. Three times Brandon Weeden’s passes didn’t clear the linemen, that was three times the Browns could have turned the ball over. Weeden has to learn to throw the ball on an arc. This is not major league baseball and you have to throw the ball over the linemen’s heads.
Brandon Weeden completed 17 of the 29 passes he threw. He got his first win and it is his birthday so we should let him enjoy the moment. The Browns defense stepped up big in the second have to get their old man quarterback his first win in the NFL. The Browns would have set a record if they would have lost today’s game. It was nice to see them finally get a win and put the 11 game losing streak behind them.
Weedne still has a lot to learn in the NFL. Lets hope he continues to learn.
