And he's fresh out of bubblegum, motherfuckers!
I don't think there's any chance of Kizer starting early this season
but I don't think that link provides any credence.
For several reasons.
1. The Browns know what they have in Oswiler (terrible) and Kessler (a solid backup quarterback who does not have the arm strength to be a starting quarterback in the NFL.
2. Throwing Kizer to the wolves in late November when the team is 2-9, half the offensive line is out with injury, and the weather is awful is setting him up to fail. Get him the first-team reps in training camp/preseason and get him out there with a healthy group.
3. The Browns have to find out what they have now -- With two 2018 first-round picks and three second-round picks, they absolutely have the capital to move up to #1 overall and take a QB. They need to figure out sooner rather than later if Kizer is their guy.
He's not terrible. He's worse than that. He made us wish to have any one of the four-headed-monster that was Hoyer/Mallet/Yates/Weeden back under center. Deandre Hopkins had 1500+ yards with those FOUR under center in 2015. He had 954 yards last year...
everyday for 90 days, a diet that he claims has given him more arm strength and is throwing the ball harder without any extra effort. Diet was put together by Browns nutritional staff.
Any word that he actually is showing improvement in camp?
Kudo's to him for determination, I know I couldn't do it for 2 weeks much less 90 days.
with Kizer's natural size and strength is an adequate NFL QB and somewhat underrated. Jackson seems to really like him because plays with grit. IMO It's going to be tough for Kizer to unseat him to start the season but I wouldn't see it as any sign that Kizer is underperforming if he does. Alternatively if Kizer starts it will be a very good sign that Kizer is progressing at a nice clip. I just think Jackson will default to Kessler if the competition is neck and neck to start the season.
He had multiple passes batted down in yesterdays practice and then there is this report from today's. Granted--it's only a few practices, but he looks limited in upside:
But I'm skeptical in reference to the improvement in arm strength. Twenty three year olds don't normally gain noticeable arm strength. His lack of height is also an issue as mentioned.
between looking in good in shorts and starting in the NFL.
Granted, his competition is not that strong, and he may be able to outplay Kessler and Osweiler, but on most teams the article would read more like rookie playing well in camp. The Browns have been looking for a savior at QB since Kozar, any possibility of one is going to be overplayed.
I think Kizer can be a good NFL QB. He may be the Browns' best option Week 1, but that does not mean he would be the best option on almost any other team.
The Browns are horrendous and have some terrible QBs.
