The Cleveland Browns new coaching staff must not have too much faith in Brandon Weeden’s abilities to turn things around this season. The team held mini camps last week, it was the first chance of the new coaching staff to have a look at Weeden in the Browns offense.
The talk around the NFL is about the Browns wanting to draft another quarterback, in the up-coming NFL draft. If the coaches had the same faith in Weeden that some misguided fans had, there wouldn’t be talk about the team taking another quarterback this week in the NFL draft.
Could it be the coaches aren’t totally convinced about Weeden’s football ability? He didn’t have the best rookie season and he sure doesn’t show the work ethic to turn things around. Over the off-season reports have surfaced talking about his lack of work ethics and this could be a major concern for the Browns new coaching staff.
This draft is weak at the quarterback position. There isn’t the depth of talent in this draft that there was in last years draft. The Browns could be making a mistake thinking about taking one of the quarterbacks available in the 2013 draft. The team has other needs to fill. They really need a good corner back and a couple of line-backers.
What is it about Weeden that keeps the NFL talking about the Browns wanting to draft a quarterback? He did have problems reading the defense last season and he did make some bad decisions on the field too. He finished the year near the bottom of the list and had one of the worse T.Q.R.’s of anyone.
Some attributed some of Weeden’s poor performance to the former coaching staff of the Cleveland Browns. Perhaps the new coaching staff still doesn’t totally believe that Weeden is the right fit for the Cleveland Browns.
According to NFL.com’s Albert Breer and Sports Illustrated’s Peter King, the Browns want to draft West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith. Please say is isn’t so…….If the team does draft Smith, they would have to be setting a NFL record for taking more quarterbacks than any other team in the history of the NFL, over the past 14 years.
