Found February 01, 2013 on The Penalty Flag:
The Cleveland Browns were hoping to have the same results other NFL teams with their rookie quarterback selection of Brandon Weeden. It’s safe to say things didn’t go as planned. Weeden struggled in the West Coast offense, throwing more interceptions than touchdowns. His play has left many questioning the selection in the first round. In his first game, Weeden had a 5.1 passer rating after throwing four interceptions in a loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. According to Wikipedia, it was the sixth lowest rating in a season opener by any quarterback attempting at least 15 passes since the merger in 1970...

  • yes....he will fit the new offense much better then weeden...
  • There is no telling who is the better choice. Wheeden was given the job and Colt was thrown to the sidelines and not even given a chance after the abyssmal team performance of 2011. Colt did well and looked better than Wheeden (first years combined, despite stats). Wheeden is old and the time it will take him to develop would require finding another QB anyhow. It was a foolish draft choice by the Browns and they need to find a good, younger QB or give COlt the job.
  • Wheeden telegraphs all his passes, every throw is a bullet, and is 30 yrs old. The only problem with Cold is a weak long throw arm. If I had to pick between the two, it would be Colt. I would still try to get a better QB and trade of Weeden.
  • Weeden is inaccurate, he is afraid of being hit, cannot read defenses (did he call an audible all season?). It will be a miracle if he survives.
