One of the greatest kick and kick return men that ever graced the grounds of the old Cleveland Municipal Stadium, the Old Home Of the Cleveland Browns says that Brandon Weeden is 3-4 years away from winning in the NFL. Gerald McNeil “The Ice Cube” said, Weeden is a big strong country kid even though he isn’t young in age. He also said it is going to take Weeden time to become accustomed to playing in the NFL. He talked about guys like Manning who took a year or two before he was the quarterback he is today. He also said Weeden is a lot older, but it is still going to take him time.
McNeil went on to say that ,Weeden is a pocket passer, he seemed a bit concerned when he talked about how Weeden moves. McNeil talked about the way the good quarterbacks are playing the game today, guys like RGIII, Wilson in Seattle and others that can scramble out of the pocket to buy the team some time to make a play. It didn’t seem like McNeil thought that Weeden fit onto that category at all. The thing that has me concerned is the fact that McNeil thinks Weeden is 3-4 years away. Those were the same words the NFL scouts used to describe Weeden with before the Browns used a 1st round draft pick on the 29-year-old quarterback in the 2012 draft.
One thing you have to say about McNeil is, he knows his football. He played his college days at Baylor and he played with some of the greatest players in the history of the NFL including Mike Singletary. Watch the Video and see what you think of McNeil’s analysis of the Browns quarterback situation.
