Rookie QB Weeden debuts in Browns 19-17 win over Detroit


Cleveland Browns rookie QB Brandon Weeden had quite a few obstacles in his way in his NFL debut at Ford Field in Detroit.

He was without fellow rookie, RB Trent Richardson and TE Ben Watson and he lost WR Mohamed Massaquoi after the first play of the game.

But the 28-year-old from Oklahoma State hung in despite being shaky.

In three series against of action against a very aggressive Lions defense Friday night, Weeden completed 3 of 9 passes for 62 yards, with one lost fumble, one interception and a dismal 19.0 quarterback rating in the Browns 19-17 win.

Weeden started the game off on a very high note, completing a 12-yard pass to Massaquoi and a 34-yarder down the deep left sidelined to rookie Travis Benjamin.

The other quarterbacks did well in relief of Weeden.

Colt McCoy was 6 of 8 for 88 yards. Seneca Wallace threw a third quarter touchdown to rookie Brad Smelley to cut the Lions lead down to 14-12. Then Thad Lewis led the fourth quarter charge with Adonis Thomas scoring from 3 yards out.

The Browns won the game on a 45-yard field goal by Jeff Wolfert’s 45-yarder with 28 seconds left in the game.

The Cleveland Browns have no intention of moving any of their quarterbacks from a year ago, Colt McCoy or Seneca Wallace, according to team president Mike Holmgren.

It has been obvious since the drafting of former Oklahoma State quarterback Brandon Weeden, that the team favors him but are not saying so publicly.

The two quarterbacks from 2011, or at least one of them are expected to be the backup to the rookie.

Holmgren did say that it could be possible to keep all three quarterbacks due to the injury factor.

Browns put heat on McCoy by drafting QB Weeden with 22nd overall pick in draft

To most NFL teams looking to draft a quarterback, Oklahoma State QB Brandon Weeden looked too old at 28 to use a first round pick on.

To the Cleveland Browns, he looked to good to pass up at the number-22 overall pick.

After all Weeden has some eye-popping stats: 13 games in 2011, 408 completions in 564 attempts, for 4,727 yards, 37 TD’s, 13 Interceptions, a 72.7 completion percentage, a 159.78 passer’s rating, 43.4 passing attempts per game and 363.6 yards passing per game.

The former minor league pitcher will give a good challenge for the starting position with Colt McCoy, who has struggled in his first two years at quarterback as the starter. But to be fair, McCoy did not have but two play-makers around him, departed RB Peyton Hillis and WR Joshua Cribbs. So how can he really be evaluated?

Weeden has a more superior arm than McCoy. His arm can put pressure on defenses through the air if the Browns receivers can catch the football which they are prone to drop quite frequently.

Oklahoma State, the nation’s leader in total offense, never trailed and scored at least 33 points for the 11th time this season.

The Cowboys will now have to wait to see if their two best offensive players bolt for the big bucks of pro football.

Weeden and Blackmon are both on the projection boards as high NFL draft picks. Blackmon was chosen as the Big 12 offensive player of the year.

Arizona dropped to 7-6 on the season with their fifth straight loss to end the year.

Nick Foles completed 32 of 50 passes for 280 yards and a touchdown, but he suffered three interceptions, one was returned 62-yards for a touchdown by Markelle Martin.

The Wildcats had their chances early in the game, but on six possessions inside Cowboys territory in the first half and only could cash-in on one touchdown.

With Arizona playing in the game, the Pac-10 returned to the Alamo Bowl for the first time since 1994, ending a 15-year run with the Big 10. The Pac 10′s deal with the Alamo Bowl runs through 2013.
