DeShone Kizer on game-winning TD & more quotes from Browns preseason win

Browns QB De Shone Kizer impresses in NFL debut

Browns QB De Shone Kizer impresses in NFL debut

It was a carryover effect from the game Thursday, and Jackson wasn't having any of it. Jackson is in no rush to name a starter for that nationally televised game and indicated he may wait several more days before deciding who takes the field first. He was measured initially in talking about the rookie quarterback, noting Kizer struggled at times to call plays and did some things which were "un-Kizer like" throughout his debut. This is obviously the lesson to be learned here as Garrett continues to learn how to be a professional.

"He'll be the first to tell you that there were some things that were not DeShone Kizer-like from practice", Jackson said. And I think we're just in the beginning phase of it for him.

How quickly Kizer gets made the starting quarterback remains to be seen, but the head coach seems pretty happy with the building process thus far.

"It's the making of a quarterback", Jackson said.

"If a guy is good enough and deserving of an opportunity, trust me, we are not in a position to where we wouldn't give the best player an opportunity". He completed 6 of 14 passes for 42 yards. "I think there are some where our receivers could have gotten open a little bit better", Jackson said.

Kizer went 11-for-18 for 184 yards, a touchdown and a 114.1 rating playing the entire second half against Saints backups, and Jackson said he took a positive step.

While Jackson liked how Kizer stood in the pocket, showed poise and threw the ball down the field Thursday night, he would like to see Kizer improve calling plays in the huddle as well as with his execution at the line of scrimmage. That would be a daunting schedule for any quarterback, never mind one who only made 23 starts at Notre Dame. He said Kizer sometimes holds the ball too long while trying to read the defense.

Kizer said he was never surprised in his first National Football League action, got more comfortable as the game went on and was able to "let it rip". "You want to do what's best for your team and your players".

"There are throws he could have made (better)", Jackson said.
