Browns Name Kizer Starter Against Tampa Bay

The Cleveland Browns have announced rookie quarterback DeShone Kizer will start the Browns preseason game 3 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Saturday, August 26th in Tampa. 

Here is the statement from Hue Jackson: 

“This morning, I informed our quarterbacks that DeShone will be our starter for the third preseason game against Tampa. He has made a lot of progress by investing the time necessary to learn our offense, working hard to improve on his fundamentals while also effectively moving the offense in preseason games. Development is so important for a young quarterback, this is the next step he needs to take and he deserves this opportunity. We are very excited about seeing DeShone in the role of starter for this week, as he is certainly positioning himself well to earn the starting job heading into the regular season.

“Much like DeShone, Brock, Cody and Kevin have worked extremely hard throughout training camp and have helped create a very supportive environment in our quarterback room. They’ve pushed each other, worked well together and we expect that to continue.”

Published in Sam and Brad

The Cleveland Browns are going with Brock Osweiller at quarterback to start the 2017 preseason against the New Orleans Saints Thursday, August 10th, at FirstEnergy Stadium in Cleveland. 

The announcement came Monday morning, along with the following statement from Browns head coach Hue Jackson: 

“At this stage in the evaluation process of our quarterbacks, we are going to have Brock start the preseason opener against the Saints on Thursday night,” head coach Hue Jackson said. “A lot goes into our evaluation but it’s always going to be about efficiently and effectively running the offense. You want your starter to be able to do that despite any circumstance. Brock hasn’t really gotten any first team reps and this will give him that chance. We look forward to seeing what he can do with this opportunity throughout the week and against the Saints. Cody will be the second quarterback to take the field followed by DeShone and then Kevin. I’m pleased with the way our quarterbacks have competed and improved throughout the offseason and training camp. We are going to see a lot more of all of them this preseason and everyone in that room still has the chance to earn more opportunities and the right to lead our team as the starter when the regular season begins on September 10th.”

"Perfect Parade" Off, Charity On

NFL Week 10, 2016: After a loss to the Ravens, the reality of the Browns going 0-16 on the season, becoming only the second team to accomplish such a feat, became a chilling reality. 

Enter Chris McNeil, aka @Reflog_18 on Twitter. McNeil, on behalf of the city and Browns fans... we think... submits a request to the City to throw a parade Downtown if the Browns in fact go "defeated" for the year.  

The crowd-funded "Perfect 0-16 Parade" took off on social media and over the course of the next five weeks, raised roughly $8,000 on GoFundMe.com.

NFL Week 16, 2016: The San Diego Chargers, with 5 wins to their name in 2016, come to town to face the winless Browns in a Christmas Eve match-up for the ages. In front of a couple of thousand fans (give or take), the Browns pulled off the greatest miracle of 2016: They won a football game.

But what about the parade? Have the Browns let down their fans once again?

"NO," says McNeil! While the parade won't happen, the money that was raised (and the $2,000 + more in the week since the Browns first win) will be donated to the Cleveland Food Bank. 

Since that announcement, the Cleveland Browns, coming off of that first win, have announced that they will match the money that's been raised and donate that to the Food Bank as well! 

So while there is no parade to celebrate(?) the Browns sub-par season, a lot of people who need help are going to benefit. 

Kudos to McNeil, the Browns, and all of the fans who donated to make it happen.
