The Cleveland Browns kick off their 2013 season Thursday night with their first preseason game against the Rams. The big question surrounding the team is whether or not the Cleveland Browns new offense will be ready to shine.
There has been some concern this season about the Browns offense not clicking yet and their offensive coordinator Norv Turner voiced some frustration over the weekend with all the inconsistencies the offense had.
Well, the team returned to the practice field yesterday and it appeared to be a better day for Turner’s offensive unit. The Browns still have concerns about their former number one pick Trent Richardson but he did return to the practice field on Monday.
It is not clear if he will play against the Rams on Thursday night, his leg injury doesn’t appear to be bad enough to keep him side-lined but the team may sit him just to be cautious. It should be interesting to see the Browns new defense.
Ray Horton has worked hard this off-season to transition the defense into the 3-4. They looked good last Saturday night on family day, but playing the Rams should be a better test. The Browns should be able to display a much improved pass rush this season and we should get a peek at it on Thursday night.
The Browns will test the new offense in the game too. It will be the first real test the team faces with Turner calling the plays and we will get a better idea how Weeden is doing this season. So far there have been some mixed reviews about his second year progress.
