My personal thoughts:
-- I think Flacco has tremendously improved his game. I wasn't necessarily a "hater" of his game but I didn't think he was anything extremely great either. I'll admit that he has gotten better and some of the throws he made were what you would call "elite" throws. I can imagine it has to be a great feeling to know that you have an offense that can become explosive in a matter of a couple of plays.
-- I think Weeden played outstanding overall. The INT he threw honestly wasn't a really terrible pass; it was just great awareness and coverage by the CB (can't remember exactly who grabbed it). The last throw of the game was pretty bad as well. However, Weeden definitely made some great throws and I'm extremely satisfied in how he handled the football game; especially the last drive of the game. My hats off to him and at least for one night he looked like he could be the QB we've been looking for for a long time.
-- Greg Little has just got to go. The guy is an athletic talent but he just cannot get it as a WR. The two painful drops throughout the game were bad enough but you absolutely HAVE to catch the TD pass that was put right into his hands on the 3rd down blitz by Baltimore. He is just too inconsistent and either needs to figure it out QUICKLY or get out.
-- I am disappointed also that there was not more of Trent Richardson. He is the best offensive weapon we have and I don't feel like he was utilized enough. For two weeks in a row now Cleveland has abandoned the run way too early and put it all on Weeden's shoulders. That formula cannot work over a long period of time.
-- Our secondary minus Joe Haden is abysmal. Brown is a shell of what he once was and aside from him it's marginal players at best. I really hope Cleveland figures out a way to build that up in the near future.
Again.. good game to you all. Would love to hear your thoughts about the game as well.
