Andre Knott the Browns beat reporter said there is no doubt Colt McCoy understands the Cleveland Offense better than Brandon Weeden and it shows at practice. Weeden who is still making mistakes may not be ready to be the Cleveland Starting quarterback once the season starts according to Knott who is at the Browns training camps. It is understandable McCoy understands the Cleveland Offense better, McCoy has been here longer.
Weeden himself has already said there is a lot to take in learning the offense in the N..L.. The Browns shouldn’t rush Brandon Weeden into the starting Q.B. spot. If they do and Weeden doesn’t do well and he makes a lot of mistakes it could do damage to his confidence. The Cleveland Browns have made that mistake before, example Tim Couch. We all know what happened with Couch, his professional career end before it ever really got started.
It is true Weeden is 28 years old and has already dealt with failure in his professional sports career. He failed in trying to make it to the big show with the Yankees. Maybe failure in the N.F.L. won’t affect Weeden as bad as others. Still, there is no reason the Cleveland Browns should take the chance in rushing Brandon Weeden into the starting role if he doesn’t know the offense yet.
Colt McCoy can do the job, especially with the new talent the team can surround him with. The fans in Cleveland don’t need to see another failure with a Browns quarterback. They have seen to many already. Give the guy time to learn the offense, let him watch what McCoy does, then give Weeden a chance. Lets hope Pat Shurmur has enough experience to know better…
