Waiting For Next Year:
The official announcement from head coach Rob Chudzinski came today. Brandon Weeden will be the starting quarterback.
Chudzinski said of Weeden, “He’s gone out and earned it. He’s responded very well.”
Brandon Weeden has thrown for 229 yards and three touchdowns in two preseason games. He has completed 72% of his passes and has not had an interception.
Weeden started 15 games last season as a rookie. He completed 297 of 517 passes for 3,385 yards with 14 touchdowns and 17 interceptions. He was the first Browns rookie QB to ever start on opening day.
Coach Chudzinski confirmed that Jason Campbell will be the second string quarterback and Brian Hoyer will be the third. All three quarterbacks have performed well in the preseason.
Weeden was informed of the decision yesterday.

We certainly don’t spend a lot of time talking about fantasy football here at WFNY, but I found this ESPN post (insider) about undervalued QBs to be pretty interesting.

As expected, Brandon Weeden has won the starting job for the Cleveland Browns. But not only is the second-year quarterback being viewed as the No. 1 signal caller on the depth chart.

The new leadership of the Browns made it clear that if Brandon Weeden wanted to retain the starting quarterback job he would need to do everything in his power to prove himself worthy.

Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden has finally been named the starter by coach Rob Chudzinski. It was never much of a contest between Weeden and Jason Campbell.Fantasy Spin:Weeden went 18-of-25 for 229 yards and three touchdown in the preseason.

Cleveland Browns’ offensive coordinator Norv Turner spoke with the media Sunday afternoon, and most of the questions were about second year quarterback Brandon Weeden. Turner is excited by what he has seen out of the Oklahoma State quarterback.

Cleveland Browns head coach Rob Chudzinski let the worst kept secret in the NFL out of the bag on Tuesday, as the coaching staff named 2012 first-round draft pick, Brandon Weeden, the team’s starter for the 2013 season. After starting 15 of the Browns’ 16 games in his rookie season, Weeden—barring any injuries—will join Tim Couch, Kelly Holcomb...
It's that time of year when starting quarterback tryout results are revealed in camps where we almost all know who the starting quarterback is going to be anyways.
Well, that is unless you are talking about the Seattle Seahawks' camp last season. But other than that odd but genius situation, predicting the starting quarterback for most teams is pretty straightforward....
Every week as the season gets closer we will look at players that are on the rising and falling. After the second week of preseason and Training Camp, here are the players that are on the move.
I have loved Weeden as a QB2 since Norv showed up in Cleveland, and now he has looked fantastic in the new system over the first 2 weeks of preseason...
