|Browns want Weeden to reduce INTs -- Wed Nov 14 9:00 pm --|
Rookie QB determined to improve
|The numbers aren't good, at least not good enough. Brandon Weeden doesn't need anyone to tell him that. The Browns rookie quarterback doesn't have to scan his statistics to know he has to play better. He's well aware that he's thrown too many interceptions, won too few games and has yet to convince Cleveland owner Jimmy Haslam and new CEO Joe Banner that he's the franchise's future. Weeden understands he must improve. Just don't bother bringing it up. "I'm not a moron," he said. Following a bye week to rest his arm, relax his body and mentally block out the bad stuff from the season's first nine games, Weeden said Wednesday that he's determined to play at a higher level and lead the Browns to some victories in their last seven games.

FF Today's Take: Weeden's performances this year have been inconsistent. Despite four multi-touchdown games, the rookie has thrown more interceptions (12) than any quarterback other than Tony Romo (13). He remains a bench-filler at best in single quarterback leagues.
