Jason Campbell sees himself as the Browns starting quarterback, not the second string backup to Brandon Weeden. All Campbell has to do, is play it smart throughout training camp and through the preseason. If he does that, Chudzinski has little choice but to name Campbell as the teams starting quarterback.

Campbell should be able to use his 8 years experience in the NFL to beat out Brandon Weeden for the starting job in Cleveland. Campbell had his best season in 2011 as the starter for the Oakland Raiders before going down with a broken collar-bone courtesy of the Cleveland defense.  Before his injury he had a 4-2 record and the Raiders were in contention.

Campbell should be able to use the lessons learned in his 8 year NFL career to best Weeden for the starting job. He is a big man and he is faster than Weeden. Campbell could be more of a complete quarterback the Browns are looking for. Weeden looks like he is afraid out on the field. Campbell will use his speed to buy the Browns offense some extra time to make some plays.

There are very few reasons to keep Weeden as the Browns starter. He has one of the worse T.Q.R.’s in the 2012 season. He has a history of making bad decisions and he led the team to one of the worse records in the red-zone in the history of the team.

It is time for the Cleveland Browns to step up and play like a NFL team. Campbell could help them do it. The most important thing Campbell brings to the Browns, is his want to be a starting NFL quarterback. If he continues to have that want, he should beat Weeden out of the job, hands down. Weeden only brings one thing to Cleveland, a strong-arm. Other than that he has nothing to offer this team.

It shouldn’t take much for Campbell to take over the Browns offense. Weeden hit less than 25% of his passes over 25 yards last season. His accuracy sucked and he had trouble with the touch pass into the corner of the end-zone. Campbell has to be able to do better than that…..

Campbell says; “It’s not about egos and things like that.”   “I’m going to help Brandon as much as possible, but at the same time, I’m going to push him and compete.”

That’s a competition Campbell may very well win.

          This is actually the worst article ever! There aren’t any substantial fact, and it is elementary in concept and delivery. Sorry if it hurts, but the truth does. I was disappointed that I took five minutes to read it!

    The Browns showed everybody what they think of Weeden at this years draft. This guy is out for sure, loading picks to insure they can make a move up next year to get their guy. Campbell will play at some point this season most likely sooner than later. What a waste of a 22nd pick!!!! At 30 years old by the time he learns the game his body will be on its way out. Arguably one of the worst draft picks ever.

      A wasted pick at 22? we got a starting QB in the NFL who added 6 more points a game and kept us in every game last year..how is that a waste?

        5 Wins what are we celebrating for? 5 wins sucks….

         
        • dan dyer

          ..and you celebrated McCoys 6 wins and he had 2 1/2 years in the league!

            I don’t see how you say I celebrated 6 wins. I think the team sucked for years, The record reflects that. I will say if the Browns would have played McCoy last season I think we would have have more than 5 wins….

    Weeden will be pushed by Campbell,but not very much. He will be pushed harder by an undrafted rookie free agent that the Browns picked up named
    Ryan Apling out of Ark. State U. He is good.He won’t be able to push Weeden enough. You seem to overlook the fact that Weeden had the best rookie QB season in Brown’s history. A huge amount of those incompetions were passes that bounced off the hands of the receivers,or their pads or other body parts and should have been caught. It will look very different this year . Go Browns!!! 10-6

      Best Browns rookie season in history. Geez, that means 5 wins is a record setter. What a freaking joke……

    yes!! he looked scared a lot of times and couldn’t make simple passes. I just hope he can move on from that. he’s very sloppy.

    Can Weeden or Campbell bring Cleveland a Superbowl Trophy? As a Cleveland Browns fan I want a Superbowl Trophy and neither I believe and obtain one.

      I have been a Browns fan for a very very long time too. I have to agree with your statement. I would however take Campbell before I would take Weeden.

    Harrison is no longer a Steeler…..Good news for WeeweeDin his pants….

    First Steelers game last year…..Harrison closing down on Weewee boy……Weewee was already out of the pocket…..he slid for a 5 yard loss in the backfield……My impression would be totally REDACTED here……but from that moment on…I knew he didn’t have the lugnuts it takes to play QB in the AFC North….

    Weeden is skeered…..he plays skeered….he’s a poser….When the fight or flight adrenaline kicks in…I sure don’t want a flighty little girl like Brandonna Weeden playing QB….

     
    • LG

      Well, Weeden still has to face Harrison twice a year when he faces the Bengals if he is the one playing…..

    I know you very much dislike Weeden and the 5 wins is not Weedens fault, a win is a teams job, not just a QB’s. Weeden did have the best QB rookie season in Browns history and he fits in Norv Tuners/Chuds better then Campbell. Also Weeden was not totally at fault, he had inept play calling in the worst situations. If Little/Gordon continue to improve and we get a 100% health T-Rich your going to see what Weeden can do, and if not Campbell is there.

      Then why would Chud and Turner bring in a guy they don’t think fits. All you people kill me with this Turner Chud offense. You haven;t seen it yet and have no idea what it really is.

    Weeden will be our QB for at least 5 yrs. he will show all this year under a better OC. He can play.
