FILM STUDY: Brandon Weeden Week 1 vs. Eagles

After watching All 22 game film, I decided to breakdown Brandon Weeden's rough Week 1 outing vs. the Eagles. First, a theme I noticed with film photos, then my notes on of all 35 of  Weeden's passes.

PROBLEM: Weeden struggles in the pocket when his protection breaks down to the right side

Trent Richardson fails to hold a block on the rushing end, Phillip Hunt

The pressure is there and though Hunt stumbles, he is nearing Weeden, forcing him to get rid of the ball

Weeden gets it out before he's hit but it's underthrown for the intended receiver Travis Benjamin deep down the right sideline...

And intercepted by Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, who is in perfect position to easily pull it down

On this play, Cullen Jenkins breaks free and is flustering Weeden to his right shoulder

Mohamed Massaquoi is wide open deep down the right sideline but as you can see, the pass is nowhere near Massaquoi, sailed over his head out of bounds

Weeden excelled in short drop, quick release play setups, the source of most of his completions. He struggled when forced to make reads in the pocket and when pressure could build up around him. The gameplan for Week 2 should include more of these quick release plays to minimize the potential for mistakes and allow Weeden to build confidence.

1- Three-step drop, slant 24 yards to Massaquoi, 18 YAC
2- play action to TE A. Smith, -1 yards
3-  stood in pocket, 3 yds, Watson
