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.

Texas Longhorns quarterback Garrett Gilbert, who lost his starting job after two games and then-had season-ending shoulder surgery, is planning to transfer.

He has been given his unconditional release from his scholarship to explore opportunities at another school.

Gilbert won this season’s training camp battle to keep his job but was replaced by Case McCoy and David Ash in the second game.

Gilbert was a much-ballyhooed high school national player of the year, came off the bench as a freshman to replace the injured Colt McCoy in the 2010 BCS title game that ended with a loss to Alabama.

He started every game in the 2010 season when the Longhorns dropped to 5-7 and missed a bowl game for the first time since 1997.

Bengals shock Browns in season opener, 27-17

Rookie wide receiver A.J. Green caught Cleveland’s secondary napping to score his first career catch, a 41-yard touchdown from backup quarterback Bruce Gradkowski as the Cincinnati Bengals spoiled a sloppy debut by Cleveland under new head coach Pat Shurmur.

The Bengals won 27-17.

Gradkowski, who played for the Browns in 2008, came on in relief of injured rookie quarterback Andy Dalton, called for a quick snap as the Browns were still trying to figure out the Bengals offensive alignment, lobbed the ball to Green, who scored with 4:31 to go in the game and shocked the Browns and all the fans in Cleveland Stadium.

The Browns fell to 1-12 in season openers since their return to the NFL in 1999.

Another bright spot was Bengals running back Cedric Benson, who rushed for 121 yards and cemented the game with a 39-yard run down the right sideline for a TD with 1:49 to play.

Dalton, the Bengals rookie QB, looked good in the team’s first three drives. The second-round pick from TCU, took advantage of good field position to help the team to a 13-0 lead; two Mike Nugent field goals of 24 and 47 yards and a 2-yard TD pass to tight end Jermaine Gresham.

But the Browns came alive in the second quarter after a long Joshua Cribbs kickoff return.

Cleveland QB Colt McCoy threw a 34-yard TD pass to tight end Benjamin Watson halfway through the second quarter for their first score.

McCoy then threw a 56-yard completion to Mohammed Massaquoi, the longest pass of his career, set up a 2-yard TD to tight end Evan Moore, three plays later and the Browns led 14-13.

McCoy, is the Browns’ eighth different opening-game QB in the last nine seasons.

The Browns led 14-13 at the half despite shooting itself in the foot with 10 penalties for 67 yards. While the Bengals were concered about their rookie QB Dalton, who had his right wrist injured in the second quarter. Although X-rays did not show anything severe at halftime, the Bengals coaching staff turned to the veteran Gradkowski, who had looked very capable as a backup during the preseason.

Dalton looked very poised and under control in his NFL debut. He completed 10 of 15 passes for 81 yards for a TD and a quarterback rating of 102.4.

During the game, Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis became the longest tenured coach in team history when he began his ninth season with the team. He passed owner and founder Paul Brown (1969-75) and Sam Wyche (1984-91). He will soon become the winningest coach in franchise history.

The Bengals played the game without starting offensive guard Bobbie Williams, who is serving a four-game suspension for violating the NFL policy against using performance enhancing substances.
