NU: I've seen significant growth. In the past four games, he has completed 75 of 132 passes (57 percent) for 915 yards and six touchdowns with three interceptions for a passer rating of 83.9. In the first four games, he completed 90 of 167 passes (54 percent) for 997 yards and three touchdowns with seven interceptions for a passer rating of 60.4. For the most part, he continues to cut down on mistakes he made earlier this season. He hasn't committed a turnover in the past two games. That includes the Browns' 7-6 win over the San Diego Chargers in windy, rainy, cold weather Sunday in Cleveland. His teammates have responded extremely well to him. He's just one of those guys who can get along with anyone. I believe his age, 29, and his down-to-earth personality have definitely helped him in the locker room. He's a rookie, but he doesn't act like one. The Browns have three seasonal captains -- middle linebacker D'Qwell Jackson, kicker Phil Dawson and left tackle Joe Thomas -- and they name a fourth captain for every game. Weeden was the selection for Week 8, so there's concrete evidence he is viewed as a leader already.
