Revis Says Pryor Is ‘One Of The Best Athletes’ In NFL

Tags: , ,

This week was quite the week for celebrity back scratching. Darrelle Revis stood up for Terrell Pryor shortly after Pryor stood up for him in the midst of criticism.

Revis praised Pryor by saying that he is one of the best NFL athletes to date. He states the fact that Pryor seemed to flawlessly switch positions as his reason for so supporting him. Revis went on to say that he was happy to see Pittsburgh guys excelling.

Pryor started the player code when he defending Revis through a whole lot of criticism about his speed reduction as a 31-year-old player. Terrelle Pryor said that Revis still had what it took to lock things down.

All praise aside, Revis is correct about Pryor’s ability. Not many people can make such a massive position switch and excel at it like Pryor did. Hue Jackson made a smart move when he made the decision to keep this person around.

Pryor has excellent standings at this moment. He is leading the team in areas such as touchdowns, yards and much more. He is a good  player, and he is solid where he stands. Pryor has proven to be a true diamond in the rough.

Cleveland Browns Josh McCown Back In Practice

Tags: , , ,

 

Browns QB Practices Despite Injury

Josh McCown started the season as Robert Griffin III‘s backup. He ended up starting game 2 on the season but suffered a broken collarbone in the first half of the game versus the rival Baltimore Ravens. He ended up finishing the game but has not appeared in a game for Cleveland since.

This week, the veteran QB returned to practice. He has his eyes set on the goal of winning back the starting spot at quarterback for the Browns. The Browns are 0-5 on the season so far.

So far this season, 5 different players have appeared at the quarterback position for the Browns. The original starter, Griffin, was injured in game 1. Then McCown started game 2. Since then rookie Cody Kessler, wide receiver Terrelle Pryor, and career journeyman Charlie Whitehurst have all appeared at the position for the Browns. It is important to note that Pryor was drafted out of college by the Raiders to play quarterback after starring at the position in college at Ohio State.

Kessler was injured in week 5 against the New England Patriots. It was originally thought that he had broken bones in his check, but X-rays revealed that to be not true. The quarterback situation this year is a perfect representation of the Browns situation at the position since the team’s inception in 1999.

Cleveland Browns Terrelle Pryor Can Do It All

Tags: , , , , , , , ,

Terrelle Pryor began his college football career at Ohio State as the starting quarterback for the Buckeyes.  It makes sense that he now finds himself in Cleveland with the Browns.  He recently showed his skills in receiving, rushing, and passing against the Miami Dolphins team. This player can do it all! And the Browns need him to do it all until they have a solid option at quarterback.

Pryor Switches to Wide Receiver

He boldly switched positions only a year ago to keep his NFL career going.  This receiver is a valuable player because he recently gained 21 yards rushing, 144 yards receiving, and 35 yards passing.  He is the first player since Billy Kilmer in 1964 to catch three passes, throw three passes and carry three times.  This is an impressive feat for any player.

Terrelle Pryor is a valuable asset to the floundering Cleveland Browns (0-3).  Since he is over six feet tall and can run at lightning speed, he adds depth to the team.  The Browns are currently starting their third string quarterback and it is entirely possible that Pryor may be passing even more in the upcoming games.

Hue Jackson is the head coach for the Browns and has created several packages to better utilize the unique skill-set that Pryor brings to the table.  It will be interesting to see what number 11 will accomplish next.  His teammates love his positive attitude and he is also a fan favorite in Ohio.

Browns Announce Five Captains For 2016 Season

Tags: , , , ,

The Browns announced who their five captains will be on Wednesday. They decided to go with Robert Griffin III, Demario Davis, Joe Thomas, Tank Carder and Joe Haden.

The 2016 season looks like it is going to be a fantastic once for the Browns. Joe Thomas is the chosen left tackle, and Joe Haden is the chosen cornerback. Demario Davis is going to be the quarter back, and Griffin will be a linebacker. Tank Carder is going to be the special teams standout. The Browns seem to have a mix of champions going on.

The Browns will have these captains for an entire season. This is the first time in Browns history that they have done that.

The head coach, Hugh Jackson, said that he was excited about having these gentlemen chosen as the five captains. He said that he knows they will change the culture, and he looks forward to it. Jackson also looks forward to changing the team’s fortune.

Griffin is going to have an amazing time, as he has not started since 2014. He is coming from spending our wonderful seasons with the Redskins.

Griffin said that he was proud that the coach and players trusted him enough to put the Cleveland letters on his jersey.

Haden has had seven glorious seasons with the Browns. He says that he is extremely excited about being a captain. It’s an important role to him that he cherishes and wants to continue to grow and lead the team by example.

An Unforgettable Night For Robert Griffin III As Browns Lose, Fantasy Value Set To Peak

Tags: , , , ,

Robert Griffin III was at his stellar best in the second week of preseason matches. Now, let’s take a peak into what this means for the fantasy league.

The quarterback for Cleveland Browns gave a plausible performance despite them losing 24-13 to the Atlanta Falcons on Thursday evening. What better way to extend his recent form than to score two touchdowns, and complete 6 out of 8 passes from 96 yards out. Three scrambles rushed for 36 yards without a single turnover was a considerable improvement from the first preseason week. At the beginning of the first quarter he proved why he is one of the highlights of the forthcoming season by throwing a flighted deep ball to get Terrelle Pryor for a 50-yard touchdown. Almost soon after he topped that off with an elegantly executed touchdown throw for Gary Barnidge from 29-yards.

Hue Jackson –the Brown’s coach- has shown immense dedication towards RGIII, and it paid off two-fold as the team morale was boosted. On the flipside, seeing flashbacks of the prominent rookie RGII once was reminded the team of how his new-found form could propel their prospects for the upcoming season. But RGII Achilles Heel is of course, inconsistency. So expect him to be quarterback option 2 at present.

Cleveland Browns Starter Robert Griffin III

Tags: , , , , , , , ,

Robert Griffin III has recently been named the new starter for the Cleveland Browns, and now comes the time to prove himself on the playing field. Griffin has been the top choice for starting quarterback for a while, and it has simply been a matter of whether the team’s head coach would choose to make this decision.

Hue Jackson, the coach, announced on Monday that Griffin was the second pick for starter, and now he’s become the 25th different quarterback for Cleveland’s team since 1999. Griffin has previously been named the Washington Redskins’ rookie of the year on the offensive side. In the wake of him being named starting quarterback, questions and some doubts have come up about whether he’ll be able to recapture the glory of his earlier years as a rookie player for the Redskins.

Time will tell if this decision to name Griffin as quarterback will be a positive one, since the team has seen several downturns in recent years. Coach Jackson has released a written statement that Griffin has earned the right to be named to this team position, and he will be more than willing to perform every action needed to fulfill this role. Griffin has gained the respect of his teammates and of the coaching staff through this entire process, and all are confident he has good chances of success in upcoming NFL seasons. Probably the best indicator of Griffin’s success will be his willingness to trust in the coaching decisions of Coach Jackson.
