Steelers to face rookie QB DeShone Kizer in Week 1

Cleveland Browns quarterback De Shone Kizer rolls out against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers during the second quarter of an NFL preseason football game Saturday Aug. 26 2017 in Tampa Fla All Browns Players and Coaches Stood for the National Anthem Because of This Man

The Cleveland Browns have yet to officially name their quarterback of choice to start Week 1 of the regular season.

Ready or not, here comes the rookie from Notre Dame.

What made the play even more exciting for those loyal to the men in brown and orange was Kizer's footwork, first stepping up into the pocket, exiting to the left, stepping up again and throwing on the run, all while never pulling his eyes down from the field ahead. I think we have been more in the gun than probably anything lately, but we have a variety of different things we do. I've been feeling pretty good about what I feel and what I think for a little while now, but you have to let things, as I've always said, play out.

Finally, Jackson said Kizer did some things better than he expected.

Overall, Kizer made Jackson look rather wise in deeming him "the guy" for at least this week. He did not score a touchdown and he did throw an interception. With the Kizer locked into the starting role for Cleveland, expect Brock Osweiler to be on the block and likely released before the start of the season if no deal can be found.

Osweiler entered the competition with an obvious edge because of his experience, but his inability to move the ball Monday night against the New York Giants may have doomed him.


"He came in here as an outside linebacker and played about 15 pounds overweight", Jackson said August 23.

Schwenke, who signed as a free agent with the Colts in March to play guard, had been battling a foot injury that kept him out of offseason workouts and training camp.

Perhaps the most remarkable math embedded in Osweiler's performance is the 25 yards on SIX completions. Rookie quarterbacks who see action from Day 1 aren't doomed to fail by default.

Kizer played the second half against the Saints and led the Browns to two touchdowns. Rookie Zane Gonzalez kicked a 39-yard field goal in the third quarter to finish a 68-yard drive with Kizer at quarterback. Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota both started the first week of their first seasons and both are widely considered to be the leaders of the next generation of quarterbacks. Both are 21 years old, have shown tremendous flashes to be excited about, but have a lot of growing in the National Football League to do. As much as Jackson talked up Kizer, there were missed throws and an interception that were the result of staring down a receiver on third down on the Cleveland side of the 50.

The Browns don't figure to be competitive during the 2017 season, though, so it wouldn't be a surprise to see multiple quarterbacks get playing time.
