The Cleveland Browns moved their practice inside this morning for what they called inclement weather. The real motive for this move may have been not to expose Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden to the public eye. The fans in Cleveland are not as happy as they once were when they were thinking Weeden could help the Browns win. Now the real football fans, the people who really know football are on to the fact that Weeden is the worst quarterback taken in the first round of the 2012 draft.
True Browns fans are less than happy with the fact Head Coach Pat Shurmur’s decision to not give Colt McCoy a fair chance at eh starting role came to fruition. The fans I have talked to think this could have been Colt’s year. Many have said they don’t understand why Shurmur was so quick to jump the gun and name Brandon Weeden the starting quarterback for the Cleveland Browns before he even saw how Weeden could perform in the NFL.
Many think Shurmur is stuck with his decision now. The fans I have talked to also say if Shurmur changed his mind now and made Colt McCoy the starter, he would look that much more inexperienced. Some fans are even hoping Brandon Weeden suffers a season ending injury in the game against the Green Bay Packers Thursday night. I say no one deserves to be injured while playing a sport. It isn’t nice to wish that on anyone.
While I agree with the fact Shumur may have made a mistake naming Weeden the starter, I also wonder why the Browns would move the practice inside this morning. This is football, there was some rain in the Cleveland Area this morning and from what I can recall, they play Football outdoors in the rain. If I were Pat Shurmur I would have held the practice out side as planed. Weeden may have needed some practice in the rain. We saw how bad he was last Friday in decent weather, GOD only know how bad he will be once the ball is wet.
I know for a fact there were some games Colt McCoy played in when the weather was less than desirable. You’re not helping your rookie quarterback Pat Shumur. A little practice in the rain could have helped… Now, some of you reader may think this article is a joke. I wish it were. The fans I talked to really do feel this way…. Some fans are already comparing Weeden to Mike Phipps
