The 4-10 Cleveland Browns travel to play the New York Jets this Sunday. The Browns are facing another season with double-digit losses. This is what the fans in Cleveland are accustomed to. Some fans would like to see if Alex Tanney can play quarterback, or is he just a youtube wonder made famous by doing his trick shots with the football.
Jason Campbell has been the starting quarterback and he has done a fair job, it’s the Cleveland defense that has let the team down. Over their last three games, the Browns defense let the lead slip away in the last 2 minutes of the games.
Last week the Browns defense gave up 179 rushing yards, this isn’t the defense Ray Horton thought he was going to have on the field by Thanksgiving is it? Cleveland has a lot of things that need fixing. More so than who is at the quarterback position.
At this point in the season, does it really matter if the Browns finish the season with a 6-10 record or 4-12? The team isn’t ready for prime time and they need to get some top play makers in the up-coming NFL draft.
The first thing they need to do is solidify their receiving group. They then need a quarterback who is smart enough to play in the NFL. Their running game is none existent and they have to find a tough durable running back who can hit the holes hard and make positive yards.
Starting Tanney to see if this kid can play on the NFL level isn’t a bad idea. We all know Weeden is gone after this season and the team is going to need a solid back up quarterback. We may as well see what they have with Tanney in at least one of the 2 games left this season.
