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.

Cleveland native Robiske cut by Browns

Brian Robiske, a Cleveland Browns fan since his youth while serving as a ballboy when his dad was an assistant coach with the team, had a chance to play for the hometown team.

Robiske was a star player at Chagrin Falls High School. He was an Ohio State star, finishing eighth on the all-time list with 127 catches in 51 games.

Robiske, the first of three second-round picks by the Browns in 2009 and the 36th overall selection, was cut on Tuesday in favor of running back Thomas Clayton, who was signed due to the injuries to Peyton Hillis and Montario Hardesty.

The move was in the air for weeks as Robiske only had three catches for 25 yards, the lowest of all the Browns receiving corps.

Robiske never really had the production in the NFL that is expected of a possession-receiver. He caught seven balls as a rookie in 2009 and 29 catches in 2010.

Benson’s 150 rushing yards helps Bengals end losing skid

The Cincinnati Bengals 10-game losing streak started with a 23-20 loss in Cleveland on October 3. The streak matched the 1993 team for the longest losing streak in one season.

It was ironic that the streak ended on Sunday against the same team, the Cleveland Browns. The Browns in October were not a very good team but the team has improved over the season and was favored to beat Cincinnati because most media observers said all week that the Browns running back Peyton Hillis would be unstoppable.

As it turned out, the Bengals running back Cedric Benson was the one who was unstoppable. It was like odd times, as Benson ran past, around, over and through the Cleveland defense for 150 yards on 31 carries, scoring a touchdown as the Cincinnati Bengals beat their Ohio rivals, 19-17 at Paul Brown Stadium in Cincinnati.

With the loss, the Browns secured their 10th losing record in 12 years since they returned as an expansion team.

The Bengals rookie placekicker Clint Stitser looked good again, as he kicked four field goals of 25, 39, 34 and 20 yards. He is seven-for-seven on field goal tries since the Bengals signed him to replace Mike Nugent who was lost with a season-ending injury.

The Browns scored a touchdown on their opening drive on a trick play. The very creative trick play put only three lineman on the line of scrimmage while the other players lined up around the sidelines. Tight end Robert Royal outran the coverage down the sideline for a 20-yard touchdown catch.

The game had a downside, as Bengals receiver Terrell Owens hobbled off the field with a knee injury and is lost for the season.

Browns offense a dud in loss at Buffalo

Cleveland Browns running back Peyton Hillis ran for 108 yards to put him over 1,000 yards for the season, that’s the good news. The bad news is that the Browns offense earned only nine first downs and 187 yards while failing to pass midfield in the second half in a disappointing 13-6 loss to the Buffalo Bills.

David Nelson scored the games only touchdown of the game as Buffalo upped its record to 3-10. The Bills other two stars of the game were kicker Rian Lindell had two field goals and running back Fred Jackson rushed for 112 yards.

The Browns dropped to 5-8.

Browns win on missed field goal try by Panthers’ Kasay

Jake Delhomme beats former team (file photo)

The Cleveland Browns over the past several years have seem several games slip through their hands late in the fourth quarter and almost let another one slip by the way side when they got a break.

Carolina Panthers 41-year-old placekicker John Kasay, who had made 3 of 4 attempts during the game from 40-plus yards, missed a game-winning attempt from 42 yards as time ran out on Sunday. The kick had the distance but drifted off and hit the left upright and Cleveland won 24-23 in a game that they dominated from the outset until the second half.

The Browns built an early 21-7 lead on three Peyton Hillis touchdown runs. But they allowed the 1-10 Panthers to get back in the game by making mistakes and turning the ball over.

It was a very emotional day for Jake Delhomme who beat his former team by completing 24 of 35 for 245 yards and two interceptions.

His replacement in Carolina, rookie Jimmy Clausen struggled again, 16 of 28 for 195 yards and 1 touchdown.

Peyton Hillis, the Browns new, star, running back rushed 26 times for 131 yards and added another 63 yards on 6 receptions.

The humbled Hillis, couldn’t believe it after the game when reporters told him that his name is in the team’s record books with other great running backs of years past, Jim Brown and Leroy Kelly. Hillis’ 11 rushing TD’s are the most of a Browns running back since 1968 which was accomplished by Kelly.
