How much better is Brandon Weeden going to be this season mentally? If you recall last season he came out after he discovered what a tight end was and told everyone via the news media they didn’t have those at Oklahoma State.
Of course he was kidding (we hope) and he found out you can throw the football to these guys and they can make things happen for the offense. This off-season it seems like Weeden is more mentally prepared to come to camp and compete for the starting job.
He has even talked up Browns tight end Jordan Cameron. Weeden thinks he will be a good fit in Norv Turner’s offense. What a difference one off season in the NFL has made in Weeden’s life.
In 2012 he didn’t know what a tight end was, and in 2013 he thinks one could make a difference in Turner’s offense. Is this a sign of good things to come? Is Weeden busting his hump studying Turner’s play book? Is he actually doing things this off-season to make himself a student of the game?
Just imagine if he has. The team might actually win more than 4 or 5 games. There was a day in Cleveland’s football history when the tight ends were used very effectively. They not only blocked, they went out and caught a ton of passes too.
The Browns had one of the best tight ends in the history of football who went by the name of “The Wizard of Oz.” The fans loved him and he was one of the most dependable receivers in the NFL for years.
Just think if Weeden finds out how to throw a pass from the 5 yard line into the corner of the end-zone this season. The Browns could use the tight end to catch them and they could score once the team is the red zone.
How exciting would that be? I am glad Weeden feels comfortable enough to think he knows what will work in the team’s offense. Maybe this is a good sign of things to come….Lets all hope so….
