Hue Jackson Named DeShone Kizer Starting Quarterback and It Broke His Brain

Hue Jackson Named DeShone Kizer Starting Quarterback and It Broke His Brain

"We're going to get with DeShone and ride him through this". "This is not just for the moment". "He has the talent and makeup we're looking for".

The players who kneeled seem to have their hearts in the right place, wanting to demonstrate a call for a more peaceful, conciliatory world through prayer.

Kizer, thankfully, is not Weeden (at least we all better hope not), but it will be a bit of a surprise if he sees the field Thursday night against the Chicago Bears, meaning the next time he is in game action will be against the Steelers.

Kizer will be the 15th different season-opener starter for the Browns in 19 years when he takes the first offensive snap at First Energy Stadium on September 10. Kizer was also the fourth quarterback drafted behind Mitch Trubisky, Patrick Mahomes and Deshaun Watson, but the first to earn a starting job.

Kizer is the first rookie quarterback in recent memory that I can recall that didn't LOOK like a typical rookie, as he showed no fear in throwing the ball deep down the middle, hanging in the pocket and showing leadership in the huddle.

One of quarterback Kirk Cousins' most consistent and effective targets, Reed had 66 catches for 686 yards and six touchdowns last season despite missing four games with injury. A dropped pass and a fumble in the red zone marred his outing Saturday.

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. "Today, I wanted to finish the things I wanted to watch, have the conversations I wanted to have with others and just kind of move from there". He came well prepared to play.

"I thought he led the team and gave us opportunities which we didn't finish as a unit", Jackson said.

Coach Hue Jackson has elected to go with the second-round pick from Notre Dame over veterans Brock Osweiler and Cody Kessler. But if he struggles enough, it would not be surprising to see him pulled. He did something that I was very proud of.

"He doesn't have the National Football League experience, but the only way you get that experience is by playing". "I expect him to do well". Elite teams win games when they are better than their opponent. Though it makes sense to get a rookie who's only made one start some more quality reps, Jackson hadn't planned on playing many, if any, of his regulars in that game.

"There's nothing in my mind that says he's not going to do well", Jackson said Wednesday.

Kizer connected three times with Corey Coleman, including once for a 32-yard sideline route on which he rolled to his left and put it where only the single-covered Coleman could get it.

Kizer's game should be looked at on balance.

"He's doing everything I'm asking him to do, " said Jackson.
