With concussions to both Jason Campbell and Brandon Weeden, the Browns were forced once again to go out and shop for a quarterback. Surprisingly, the team signed Caleb Hanie.
Hanie hasn’t taken a snap in an NFL game since 2011. His numbers suck and it makes me scratch my head as to what the Browns were thinking. Just a week earlier the team signed trick shot artist, Alex Tanney.
Hanie tried out for the team at the same time the Browns signed Tanney. Tanney was the guy they picked and he should be the guy they start in the game against the Patriots.
There are a couple of reasons for this. First he has a strong arm and he is supposed to be a very accurate quarterback. Second, he is hungry to show the NFL what he can do. The kid would put his heart into this game and he would be a better choice than Hanie.
Hanie doesn’t bring much to the team, his numbers suck and he isn’t better than Weeden. Hanie has a career rating of 41.6. He has thrown 3 career touchdowns and 10 interceptions.
Tanney is unproven and he should be given the chance to show the team what he can do. Of course if the Browns medical staff clears Campbell to play, none of this matters unless the Patriots knock him out of the game.
It is going to be interesting to see who Chud starts this Sunday. Stay tuned to Cleveland Sports 360, I’m sure we will hear something today about who will play QB for the Browns.
