    Gotta give Weeble his due he looked like the QB Heckert and Shurmur wet themselves over the night he was drafted. The first half wasn’t all that impressive but in the second the “kid” went off. He had some nice velocity plus accuracy and did it while staying in the pocket under pressure. All that aside though he wasn’t exactly facing the league’s top defense. BUT as bad as week 1 was this was the complete opposite. Lets see what happens week 3 now.

    In game 2. I was in a grocery in MD with a browns shirt on and a ravens fan said, hope the QB will do a little better this week. I asked, “Who Flacco?” and he said no the Browns QB. I said, well he is a rookie, and they guy said yeah but 5%? Got to love ignorance
