Norv Turner knows quarterbacks having coached some of the all time greats. Troy Aikman raves about Turner and his play-calling, and won two Super Bowls with him as his offensive coordinator. Turner may not be that good at being a head coach, but he sure is respected as one of the best offensive coordinators in the business. Turner is in a perfect place, he’s looking to groom Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden and see if he can coach up the kid. Turner spoke to ESPN 850 WKNR with the Hooligans about how he thinks Weeden could be a legit NFL quarterback after studying him on film. “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. 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.” var switchTo5x=true; stLight.options({publisher:''});
