Brandon Weeden has a new owner, general manager, head coach, and overall system.  That normally doesn’t bold well for a quarterback that wasn’t hand-picked by the incoming coach. Weeden may not be the favorite to start in his coaches eyes, but according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Weeden has “no doubt” that he’ll be the starting quarterback for the Browns this coming season. “I completely expect to be the starter,” Weeden said before an appearance at the Cleveland Auto Show, according to The Plain Dealer. “That’s my mindset going in. I’m confident in my ability to be the guy, to lead this football team. I expect completely to be better this year than I was last year.” Browns stud running back Trent Richardson is a fan of Weeden’s, and believes his quarterback will be the team leader in Cleveland. “I think he will be my quarterback,” Richardson told “NFL AM” analyst Mark Kriegel in an interview that aired Tuesday morning on NFL Network. “We can’t put too much on Brandon, we got to make sure he believes in us and make sure he believes that we know that he is going to be our quarterback. …We just got to all be behind Brandon.” Unless the Browns draft a quarterback in the draft, or trade for either Alex Smith or Ryan Mallet, I fully expect Weeden to beat out Colt McCoy again.
