MMQB: Browns Take 3rd Place in AFC Rookie Challenge

Colts rookie TE Coby Fleener, and accuser of the Browns' rookies doing some shady work to take third place.

With Sports Illustrated's Peter King on vacation this week, he allowed Indianapolis Colts rookie tight end Coby Fleener to write this week's edition of Monday Morning Quarterback. It ended up being a good fit because Fleener was able to keep a diary of the four days he spent at the AFC Rookie Symposium last week.

As part of the event, Fleener explained that the rookies were participating in an "Ultimate Rookie Challenge." What did that entail?

Four times during the symposium, rookies were given eight different questions and 10 seconds to answer each of them. The top five prizes for the teams that won were: 5th: Xbox Kinect, 4th: Beats headphones, 3rd: Bose Soundlink Wireless music system, 2nd: Bose Music System 3, and 1st: iPad.

The Browns ended up taking third place, finishing behind the Patriots and the Chargers. Fleener added a playful jab at Browns rookie linebacker Emmanuel Acho, wondering how he was able to get so many answers buzzed in before everyone else:

I'm convinced that Emmanuel Acho, formerly of Texas and now a linebacker for the Browns, was somehow cheating the system after he registered the fastest correct answer four separate times.

We've got a genius on our hands. Fleener noted that in addition to the Browns, he was equally skeptical to the fact that the Patriots took first place. Now that I can understand.

A little unrelated, this article has a photograph of Brandon Weeden from when he visited the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Saturday. His choice of attire? That Cleveland Indians shirt that he seems to adore, a Cleveland Browns cap, and a backpack. The guy is still a kid at heart.
