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.

Browns trade up to 3rd spot to nab Alabama RB Trent Richardson

During the NFL off-season, Cleveland Browns fans had heard the name of QB Robert Griffin III as the player that the team coveted. But they were not going to beat the Washington Redskins out for his services at #2.

So, the Browns braintrust turned to trading their number-4 spot to the Minnesota Vikings to gain the third spot to get another need, a running back.

They drafted the best runner in the NFL Draft in Alabama’s Trent Richardson.

They weren’t going to let their next choice get away and traded three later round picks to the Vikings to get a playmaker for their anemic offensive attack. The Vikings received picks in the fourth round (# 118), fifth round (# 139) and the seventh round (#211).

Richardson is a dynamic and explosive running back who should help an offense who scored just four rushing touchdowns and 218 points in a 4-12 2011 season.

Eventhough Richardson is just 5-foot-9, 228-pounds, some media experts think that he could be the next Greg Pruitt in Cleveland at running back. He rushed for 1,679 yards last year at Alabama.

Some Browns fans were mad that the team did not address another need in the first round, wide receiver. The team passed up Julio Jones of Alabama and Justin Blackmon of Oklahoma State.

South Carolina surprises #1 Alabama, 35-21

South Carolina head coach Steve Spurrier finally got the biggest win of his tenure in Columbia, South Carolina.

Stephen Garcia threw three touchdown passes, two to Alshon Jeffrey and Marcus Lattimore scored three times as the 19th rated Gamecocks stunned Number 1 Alabama 35-21 Saturday.

The defending national-champion Crimson Tide had won 19 straight games, including last week’s 31-6 shellacking of Florida and had not lost since the Sugar Bowl after the 2008 season to Utah.

South Carolina, who is 4-1 overall, 2-1 in the SEC, had never beaten a Number 1 team in four previous games.

Spurrier, in his sixth season at South Carolina, had the players to upset Alabama using the Tide’s formula of speedy running backs and elusive wide receivers.

South Carolina depleted the country’s top-rated scoring defense, putting up the most points on Alabama (5-1, 2-1 SEC) since a 41-34 loss to LSU in 2007.

The Gamecocks scored four touchdowns when they got inside the Alabama 20 which was doubled what the Crimson Tide had allowed coming into the game.

The running back duo of Alabama, Mark Ingram and Trent Richardson were held to 64 yards on the ground.
