Head coach Rob Chudzinski is less than pleased with the interceptions his defense is generating in training camp. Chud has good reason to be worried, he knows in the back of his mind that Brandon Weeden is a guy who makes bad decisions.
In Monday’s practice the Browns defense generated more interceptions. Chud said; When you are out here and you are asking the guys to learn plays and learn to understand what certain throws are, you want to see them push the envelope out here,” “This is a little bit different than a game would be. You still, at the same time, do not want to see interceptions, but you do want to see guys make throws and work on the throws that they are going to need to be able to complete within working in the system.”
Nonetheless, he doesn’t like to see the interceptions being thrown. He knows that if a guy is making mistakes in practice they could carry into game time situations. He is going to have to make some tough decisions this season.
The Browns are giving Weeden every chance to prove himself. If he keeps making mistakes in practice, those mistakes could cost the team a chance to win games. The Browns brought in Jason Campbell to help Weeden. Could Campbell end up being the starting quarterback for the Browns?
Sure he can. Chud wants wins. He doesn’t want to see mistakes being made that could cost the team wins. Turn-overs are never easy to overcome. Chud knows this and he has to give his Browns the best chance to win games.
That chance may or may not include Brandon Weeden starting for the Cleveland Browns. Even though it is camp, Chud made it known he doesn’t want to see interceptions. With Weeden he is going to see them. The guy has trouble reading the defense. He doesn’t have the football experience a guy like Campbell has.
