Check out this really good article from Grantland about the Browns new QB and Trent Richardson:

It is a good article, it really points out how hard or a worker and how intelligent Weeden is. Says he basically picked and taught the new O Coordinator at OkState last season, how he had to make more reads on ever play than any QB in college or the NFL. Not only did he have to make several passing reads on each play but he would also have to do that on his 410 stick plays where he had to read whether or not to hand off the ball on a run and then read who to pass it to if he decided to keep it.

I don't describe him as a system QB just an intelligent and gifted passer. That's why he was able to pick up the WCO during the senior bowl as quickly as he did and out perform all the other QB's.

I can see the concerns about his feet and that he doesn't handle pressure too well.

But he also isn't clown footed like DA and doesn't collapse under pressure. Hopefully they've got a plan to get the ball out of his hands quick (which they do), because he sure as hell can sling it on the slants and out routes.

Watch the highlights from the Fiesta Bowl on the article. Very WCO'ey IMO.

And I wouldn't be surprised if on some of the poor throws in that highlight clip, the WR was in the wrong place.

there isn't too many rookies to not have problems dealing with pressure. its a concern, but no more than it was for colt. my focus is now on the coaching staff....hopefully they're worth a damn.

He's going to see a lot of pressure his rookie year, they are going to test him had, especially in the AFC North ... which is good news for Richardson who might have a 1500 yard season his rookie year,including a lot of delayed hand-offs.

The ability to be able to make throws anywhere on the field may help him get out of trouble easier than other "system" QBs like McCoy, but, as we saw in DA, it may lead to dreadful mistakes as well.

Having good backs and TEs that are always open short is another great way to keep pressure from coming at him all the time.

If Weeden can go across the field and over people's heads like McCoy couldn't AND hit the open outlet receiver with precision like DA couldn't ... then we might finally have ourselves a QB.
