The Cleveland Browns have a new coach and he didn’t want to talk about Brandon Weeden at all during his first press conference at the Browns camp in Berea Ohio. If you listened close to some of the statements Jimmy Haslam III makes about his new coach, he talks about the fact that Chud has always helped to turn the young quarterback into a better player. Does Weeden fit the description of being a young quarterback? It doesn’t seem like the Browns brass has much faith in Brandon Weeden. Lets face it Chudzinski is coming to the Cleveland Browns from a team that had a Q.B. who could move out of the pocket, Cam Newton rushed for over 700 yards in both of his NFL seasons.
Weeden had 111 rushing yards in the 15 games he played this season. Not only did Newton out rush Weeden he out passed him too. Browns fans that were sold on Weeden’s arm strength are really disappointed with the season he had in 2012. Some who thought this guy was the answer are already jumping down off the band wagon. The Browns are building something in Cleveland that is going to last for years. They brought in a young head coach and they want to go with a young starting quarterback too.
With Chud’s refusal to talk about Brandon Weeden, you have to wonder if he is less than impressed with what he has seen. If Weeden stood out in the NFL crowd you would think that Chudzinski would be singing praise about coming to Cleveland to work with Brandon Weeden. That was not the case. Chud remained tight-lipped about Weeden and this makes some skeptical about Weeden’s future in Cleveland.
The Fact is Rob Chudzinski declined to comment on whether or not Brandon Weeden will be his starting quarterback. “I don’t want to get into specific players right now, any of the players on the roster,” said Chudzinski.
If Weeden was the stud player some think he was, you would think the new head coach would have offered some praise to lift the guys spirits. That wasn’t the case. Now you have two of the three guys at the top of the food chain in the Cleveland Browns front office not welling to talk Brandon Weeden. Joe Banner refused to give an evaluation on Weeden during the press conference they held to tell us they were looking for a head coach. That leaves the impression the Browns are less than impressed with Brandon Weeden…..
