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. “I’m excited about what Brandon’s been able to do. The thing that we’ve spent a lot of time working on is trying to find out the things that he does best, and combine them with the things our players do best. And a lot of the things that we do on the practice field, it’s not experimental, but there’s a process you go through to get everyone on the same page. Hopefully when we get everyone in the games, we feature all the things that our guys do best. Through the preseason action that Brandon’s had, we’ve been able to do that. And we’ve had a lot of guys playing well. He’s taken advantage of the way they’ve been playing.” Weeden is 18 for 25 through two preseason games, with 229 yards passing and three touchdowns. He has not thrown an interception. In fact, he hasn’t even come close to an interception. “He was an accurate passer in college. When we watched him and when he got set and got his sights on someone and the guy was open, he didn’t miss him very often, and that’s what he’s done here. And, again, I think it’s about percentages, and if you’re trying to throw the ball to guys you shouldn’t be throwing to, you’re not going to be real accurate. If you’re making good decisions, and we’re throwing the ball to the backs already, and I don’t mind that; I like that, in fact, if you’re still getting big plays up the field.” Turner also said that the fans have a reason to be excited. “I’m excited. Our players are excited. I hope our fans are excited. I’m a realist. You can only control what we’re going against. We’ve played the Rams; we’ve played Detroit. They gave us more than what people think. Both teams blitzed us and we handled it real well. Both teams mixed their coverages and I thought we handled it well. It’s not the regular season, so we just have to continue to prepare for the regular season. I don’t think we’re going to go out and complete 75 percent of our passes in the regular season, but we’re doing it now, and that’s something to build on.” The Browns are 2-0 in preseason games, and play the Colts in Indianapolis this Saturday.
