2013 Preseason Week 1: Rams at Browns

Rams

  • Daryl Richardson will be the #1 back to start the season in St. Louis. 4 carries for 24 yards and 2 receptions for 20 yards.
  • Isaiah Pead fumbled once on 3 carries for eighteen yards.   That fumble and his one game suspension, is not going to help him get more playing time.
  • Chris Givens is really fast and a legit threat on the outside.  He continued to look good after his impressive rookie year.
  • Steadman Bailey and Brian Quick also contributed, but I want to see more of both of these guys.  Quick has great upside but is still raw.
  • No catches for Tavon Austin.  Don’t worry about that.  He will catch plenty of passes this year.

Browns

  • Dion Lewis appears to have the edge on the #2 RB job.    I expect this to be a fluid situation.
  • Brandon Weeden looked good.  I have been saying for a while that he fits Norv Turners offense very well.  If the receivers help out he could have a good year.
  • Travis Benjamin is very fast.  91yard punt return.  Good news for a team that lost one of the best special teams players of all time, Josh Cribbs.
  • Jordan Cameron could have a big season, but I need to see more of it in the preseason.  One Catch for 30 yards.
  • I really like the front 7 of the Browns.  Size, speed and versatility.   Sleeper defense for certain.
