The Cleveland Indians Have a Fan In QB DeShone Kizer

Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

With so much going on in the world of football it has to be hard for players to find the time for anything else, but rookie QB DeShone Kizer has found some time to help root on his city. Sure, the Browns are not starting off so hot this season, but that does not mean that Kizer has forgotten the things he loves to do.

Kizer was recently quoted as saying he, “loves the camaraderie they have in the locker room” about the Cleveland Indians. He is hoping to have enough time to attend a game or two this postseason and expressed sheer excitement about their upcoming games.

The Indians are certainly a bright spot for Cleveland right now since the Cavs are just getting the season started. Hopefully, for the city of Cleveland, they can have a deep run into the playoffs and then jump right to the Cavs continuing last season’s dominance.

Brock Osweiler Starts For The Browns

Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

Brock Osweiler announced as Browns starter for the preseason opening match versus Saints

Brock Osweiler is set to start the preseason opening match on Thursday evening, versus the Saints at First Energy Stadium, according to Browns manager Hue Jackson.

The second man will be Cody Kessler, followed by Kevin Hogan and DeShone Kizer.

This does not mean though, that Osweiler will begin the season opening match versus the Steelers on September 10. Kizer could well end up doing that instead.

Jackson said that, at this point in the quarterback assessment process, he will have Osweiler start in the Thursday preseason opening match versus the Saints. While many factors are taken into account during the assessment, it is ultimately about running the offense effectively and efficiently, Jackson noted. Jackson went on to say that he wants his starters to have the ability to do this in all circumstances.

Osweiler has not really got any reps in the first team, so this will provide him with that opportunity. Everyone is looking forward to watching how he fairs in the limelight during the week and versus the Saints.

Speculation is rife that the Browns might be attempting to groom Osweiler for trading. However, on Monday, Adam Schefter from ESPN was interviewed on the Dan Patrick show. Schefter said that the Browns have declined trade offers and do not wish to get rid of the veteran.

Now that Osweiler has moved to number one, for this week at least, this does not look encouraging for Kessler, with regards to his quarterback ambitions this season.

Coaches on the hot seat in 2017

 

1 Jets Cuts of all the vets won’t help the win totals and cost the coaches their jobs.
 

2

Browns After a 1-15 season, they better get at least 6 wins to keep their jobs
 

3

Bears After a 3 win season, they better get at least 6 games or Fox & company are gone
 

4

Colts Bad ownership & GM will cost HC Chuck Pagano his job.  Part of the blame is on him and his staff.
 

5

Bengals had better get to the playoffs & win a game or Marvin Lewis cpuld be history
 

6

Panthers need to get control of QB Cam Newton or Rivera may be history.
 

7

Jags better get more than 3 wins or Bye Bye. Doug Marrone has failed before could fail again.
 

8

LA Chargers Moves are always hard. GM has not done the Coaches any favors.
 

9

The Vikes may have to get back in the playoffs or Mike Zimmer could be in trouble. Injuries have plauged the Vikes
 

10

Ravens HC John Harbaugh is not in serious trouble but OC Marty Morinwheg is not helping him. Playoffs or MM is out

That is what I think.  Tell us what you think by commenting here or tweeting me @NNRonDSN.
