Rookie head coach Rob Chudzinski still not ready to name Brandon Weeden as the Team’s starting quarterback. Weeden looked good in his first preseason game. Offensive coordinator Norv Turner did a good job scripting plays that would keep Weeden from making mistakes.
Obviously, that isn’t enough for Chud to name Weeden as the team’s starting QB. Weeden still stared down receivers and lets face it the Rams defense wasn’t that good. Weeden will face a greater test come Thursday night when the Browns take on the Detroit Lions in their 2nd preseason game of the 2013 season.
The Browns are probably going to script plays that should continue to build Weeden’s confidence and keep him from making mistakes. If he can lead the team into the end-zone a few times in the game, it could give him the advantage over the other 2 quarterbacks in camp.
Weeden still face some consistency problems in camp. Turner came out and talked about those inconsistencies a little over a week ago. While some think Weeden is the man, he still isn’t showing enough to the Browns coaching staff to be named the starter.
Could he be named the starter before the start of the regular season? Sure, but I think a lot is going to depend on his performance in the last 3 preseason games. If he can continue to do things well and not make mistakes he could be the starting quarterback heading into the 2013 season.
But make no mistake about it. Chudzinski would have no problem changing quarterbacks once the season starts if Weeden fails to perform well.
