Jason Campbell comes into the 2013 season with the Cleveland Browns, showing that he can be a capable starting quarterback. Reportedly, he has out-played Brandon Weeden at the quarterback position for the Browns.
Campbell brings 7 years of experience to the Browns. Something they haven’t had in years at the quarterback position. Campbell is bigger, faster and smarter when to comes to NFL football than Weeden.
Jason Campbell wants a chance to prove he can get it done,this far in the mini camps and Browns practices he is doing just that. If the Browns had to pick a guy to start now, they would have to pick Campbell.
He is not going to sit back and settle for a back up role. If the Browns are seriously going to put the best guy at quarterback into the starting position, they have to go with Campbell based on the performances they have seen this far.
It is understandable why Campbell can out shine Weeden. He has a long history of understanding different offensive schemes in the NFL. He understands how to read a defense and he understands what the quarterbacks role is in the NFL.
The Cleveland Browns have to turn things around this season. The team is young and they need to go out and play competitive football. If Campbell give the team a better chance to do this, they have to go with him.
Reports have Campbell showing a very strong arm and completing passes all over the field in practice with good accuracy. Something else we haven’t seen out of Weeden this far. The team needs to produce more than 5 wins this year. The fans deserve it.
Steve Doerschuk from the Canton Repository has been covering Browns football for a while, had this to say about the Browns practice session. “It was a glimpse of why Campbell might really be in the hunt to take the job from Weeden.”
