USA TODAY names Carson Wentz the rookie of the week

One knock against Reid during his tenure in Philadelphia was wasting timeouts because the play clock was winding down. He actually did a respectable job last season as it pertains to the stat line, but he dealt with injuries and had to miss a lot of time while the Browns tried to figure out how awful Johnny Manziel was on and off the field.

They were blown out by the Eagles in Sunday's season opener, torched by the quarterback they passed on with the second pick in the draft, and forced a day later to place Robert Griffin III on injured reserve with a shoulder injury. He passed for a team-record 457 yards and led the Browns to one of their three wins, a 33-30 overtime thriller at Baltimore on October 11. "I just saw the ball. I am very blessed to have an opportunity to play it".

"You have to make sure you acquire the type of people you want to go away with and I think - not that that's what we're going through - but I think the process of what we're doing in here, we're in it". He was stuck behind Sam Bradford and Chase Daniel. "If the doctors say I'm good, the trainers say I'm good and my body feels good, then that's the goal". One thing that has him excited is the chemistry between him and rookie quarterback Carson Wentz. "And I think he knew the plays the first month he got there because he's been invested in this game".

"I will, however, give McCown credit for saying what he has to say under the circumstances". "You don't survive 15 years in the National Football League without knowing how to take care of your business, even in the face of adversity". If McCown got hurt, Browns wide receiver Terrelle Pryor could be an option. "His maturity level is about how well he does balance work with so many outside influences whether it be the media, autograph sales, autographed jersey sales, jersey sales, autographs and different things like that".

"It was something I've trained all week for", Agholor said. "I'm optimistic about the Hue Jackson era and believe the Browns will someday find their mythical franchise leader at quarterback. Because I'm up there early every day, and to see him up there before me - and I get there at 5:45 [a.m.] - the auto looks like it's kinda cold as far as you see the steam from the vehicle and stuff like that".

"Largely, our guys handle themselves appropriately and don't let themselves get consumed by (the rivalry)", Tomlin said. It followed an easy drop by Matthews.

Fangio's Bears will host Wentz and the Eagles on Monday night at Soldier Field.

"This is where I can step in and help protect him", Pederson said.

It's early but Agholor has an objective to play for in Wentz, and that's good news for the Eagles. That is just the nature of the business when you are involved in a high-power position in the NFL. There are no plays off.
