"We're going to get with DeShone and ride him through it all".
"He came in here as an outside linebacker and played about 15 pounds overweight", Jackson said August 23. "He has the talent and makeup we're looking for". "He's earned the right through his preparation". It's very exciting. It's been good to watch his development. "Our unit has to play better around him".
"There's a lot to show Joe Thomas", said Kizer, in position to be Cleveland's 27th starting QB since 1999. He's the second rookie to have that honor. The first was Brandon Weeden in 2012, who lost 17-16 to the Eagles en route to a 5-11 Browns season.
In the first three preseason games, Kizer has completed 25-of-49 (51%) for 351 yards with 1 TD and 1 INT for a 72.7 rating.
Folk's second field goal of the game capped off a seven-play, 31-yard drive that took 3:18 off of the third-quarter clock. "That's why I feel good about the things that he accomplished tonight". Peppers mentioned a desire to "come together at times like these"; well-meaning as they may have been, the players demonstrated their desire for unity by doing something different from everyone else around them.
"I myself will be raising children that don't look like me, and I want to do my part as well to do everything I can to raise them in a better environment than we have right now", DeValve said after the game. "At the same time we also respect the great liberties afforded by our country including the freedom of personal expression". But if he struggles enough, it would not be surprising to see him pulled. "I expect him to do well, our organization expects him to do well and his teammates expect him to do well".
"He did not fall flat on his face, " said Jackson. For now, it looks like the Kizer Era is ready to begin for the Browns.
Kizer threw the ball away when asked to run a shotgun rollout from the end zone; Jackson called that "awesome".
Coaches like to say players make their biggest jump from their first to their second season.
