Brock Osweiler has 'no regrets' giving Cleveland his all

"I thought he managed the team well, accomplished some things and we'll keep coaching him up".

"We're not going to blink about it and move forward, " said Jackson.

"While I think DeShone's done an incredible job and he's exceeded most people's expectations, that doesn't necessarily mean he's ready to be the starter tomorrow", Thomas said.

The first-year gunslinger out of Notre Dame established a rapport Saturday night with Cleveland's first-team weapons, namely second-year wideout Corey Coleman.

It appears like the Browns learned what most already knew around the league, Brock Osweiler isn't really a very good quarterback.

His performance throughout training camp and the preseason has apparently been enough for Jackson to grow comfortable with the idea of having Kizer lead the offense when the Browns open the regular season on September 10 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

"I feel comfortable with him, " Jackson said after the Browns defeated the Bucs 13-9 in the dress rehearsal game in Tampa that improved the Browns to 3-0.

Osweiler failed to live up to expectations at Houston, and he seems to have squandered his chances to win the starting quarterback job with the Browns as well. He completed 19 of 31 passes for 258 yards and one touchdown, and he added a touchdown on the ground. A dropped pass and a fumble in the red zone marred his outing Saturday.

Sears Holdings to close more USA stores, including 28 Kmart locations
Sears posted a $1.16 per share adjusted loss, compared to a Wall Street forecast of a $2.42 per share adjusted loss. Sears' comparable store sales declined 13.2%, with a 12.1% decline excluding the consumer electronics category.

Perhaps being featured on the HBO Sports series "Hard Knocks" is not a good thing for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

"Every time I do step out there I feel that pressure, but whether it was last week going in second or this week going in first, I'm looking to gain the respect of the coaches and players every time out there", he said.

Kizer put 23 points on the board with three touchdowns and one field goal in the two preseason games. "I like to see him when he's in those tough situations".

Osweiler started in the preseason opener against the Saints on August 10 and failed to lead the Browns to any points in four series. While Cody Kessler will get time as the team's second-string quarterback, but unlike Osweiler he's looked viable in his limited play.

Perspective is always important, which yard sales prove: One person's junk is another's treasure.

Kizer threw the ball away when asked to run a shotgun rollout from the end zone; Jackson called that "awesome". "Obviously, he did some good things and he made a jump".

-If Le'Veon Bell's Tuesday night tweet is legit, the running back plans to return to the Pittsburgh Steelers at the beginning of next month.
