As for his other quarterbacks, "I wasn't expecting perfection tonight", Jackson said. He isn't rushing to anything, and he doesn't have to; the Browns don't play another game until they host the Giants on August 21 in a Monday Night Football game.
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 is the raising of a quarterback".
Jackson said he was pleased that Kizer made plays with his arm and legs, and that he "stood in the pocket with poise". You don't make decisions to make them.
There's still work to do, and Jackson isn't going to succumb to outside pressure to rush him.
"I think there are throws he could have made". Jackson said after watching film of T Cam Erving, "it wasn't as bad as I think we all thought". He could bump Kizer up to No. 2 ahead of Cody Kessler.
Jackson said Kizer has to become more proficient calling the play in the huddle and executing the play at the line of scrimmage. Kizer could get more time against the Giants' starters, or he could move up to second team to see better quality defenders to help assess where he is.

"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". I'm sure he's the first to tell there's so many things to clean up. "That takes time. I don't think you do things out of a knee-jerk reaction". "When it's the right time to make the decision that we feel is right to say, 'This is the quarterback of the Cleveland Browns for 2017, ' then we'll make that decision". He could name Kizer the starter moving forward.
Brock Osweiler started the game against the Saints.
"I'm going to think through all these scenarios, I really am", Jackson said.
It wasn't all good for the No. 52 pick out of Notre Dame.
Jackson emphasized it's simply "too soon" to just say Kizer is the guy.
A couple overthrows on balls down the field to Ricardo Louis and tight end Seth DeValve were hard to miss but Jackson felt there was plenty of blame to go around for the lackluster performance from Osweiler.
