We all know how the Browns general manager Michael Lombardi feels about Brian Hoyer. When the team sign him many thought it was because of how much Lombardi likes this kid. The team already signed Jason Campbell and planned on using him as Weeden’s back up.
But now with the Injury to Weeden’s thumb. Browns head coach Rob Chudzinski isn’t so quick to name Campbell as the starter when the team travels to Minnesota to take on the Vikings in week 3. Some think Lombardi may be applying some pressure to Chudzinski to start Hoyer instead of Campbell.
Hoyer did display some know how in the Browns last preseason game against the Bears and some fans can agree that Hoyer should get this start. Chud could be just playing a little game not naming his starter to try to make the Vikings guess. But the way the Browns offense has performed thus far this season, there really is very little reason to do that.
It will be interesting to see which back up quarterback will get the start if Weeden can’t answer the call.
It will really be interesting to see what happens if the guy who gets the call out plays Weeden. What would the Browns do if that happens? Tell us who you think should get the start if Weeden can go on Sunday.
