Eagles Vs. Browns 2012: Brandon Weeden Disappoints In Debut

The Cleveland Browns almost pulled the upset over the Eagles on Sunday, but a late Philadelphia rally turned the tide. SB Nation Browns blog Dawgs By Nature wasn't happy with rookie quarterback Brandon Weeden's performance in the loss, but also noted that it was just Week 1:

I'm very disappointed with Weeden's performance, because this is not the level of incompetence I expected. In the long run, though, we need to stay focused as fans. For as bad as Weeden was, you don't give up on the quarterback you committed to after his first game as a rookie. Hopefully Weeden is humble about this, re-gathers himself, and comes back with a better performance next week against the Bengals.

Weeden finished 12-35 for 118 yards and four interceptions.
