New Browns offensive coordinator Norv Turner offered some of his thoughts on QB Brandon Weeden and his future with the team. “I saw a young guy that I think now and I thought then has a real positive upside and when I look at him on tape, I haven’t spent any time with him, but when I look at the tape I see a guy who can be a really good player,” said Turner, via Sports Radio Interviews. “I think a lot of playing quarterback has to do with the people you have around you and getting those guys playing at a high level. People may think it’s being unfair to Brandon to say ‘well they’re being cool about it.’ I think it’s being fair to him to say ‘hey we have a young guy that has some talent and we’re going to find out about him.’ We’re going to coach him and do everything we can to make him the best player he can be and let’s see where it goes. He’s going to have an opportunity to go compete, play and grow and I’m excited to be working with him.” Weeden, 29, didn’t do a whole lot to justify being an NFL starter in his first year in the league, but there’s no question that he could use some more help at receiver. Turner is obviously a glass-half-full kind of guy, which isn’t always a bad thing. It will certainly be interesting to see what the new regime decides do with Colt McCoy and Weeden in the coming months.
