Found February 26, 2013 on BlackSportsOnline:
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.

Browns reportedly love Geno Smith

According to Matt Miller of Bleacher Report, the Cleveland Browns love former West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith in this year’s draft.  They didn’t expect him to be available when they go on the board with the sixth pick, but now that the Chiefs traded for Alex Smith, they might be able to snatch him up. I don’t think the new Browns regime believes they have their quarterback...

Draft Zone Spotlight: Tim Sauer, OT, University of Northern Iowa Northern Iowa is famous for putting hogs into the NFL.  Tim Sauer is the next big hog that could make the NFL.  Last year, no one was talking about L.J.

WFNY Podcast – 2013-02-26 Scott Raab talks Cleveland sports, Warren Zevon and more
