Found May 04, 2013 on Cleveland Sports 360:
Lets face the facts folks, the Cleveland Browns are stuck with a soon to be 30-year-old quarterback in Brandon Weeden, who should have never been taken in the first round of the 2012 NFL draft, and Rob Chudzinski isn’t completely satisfied with him. Otherwise Chud wouldn’t be so hesitant to name Weeden as the Browns starting quarterback for the up-coming 2013 NFL season. Weeden may have a strong-arm, but Chudzinski, who has worked with a number of NFL quarterbacks over the years isn’t sold on Weeden’s football I.Q.. Weeden has always struggled trying to understand the complexities of football. While he was at Oklahoma State, the offense had to be over-simplified in order for Weeden to get it. Last season with the Cleveland Browns, the offense had to be over simplified for Weeden to understand it. Chudzinski may not want to curtail the Cleveland offense that Norv Turner will lead, to fit into Weeden’s mental capacity. Weeden, doesn’t get the complexities of a NFL offense. Having a st...

Grossi: Wade, Hagg, Kitchen Could Be Roster Victims For Draft Picks

This morning, ESPN Cleveland’s Tony Grossi went through the possible roster casualties in favor of the team’s five draft selections in last week’s NFL Draft.

NFL News: Browns’ Chudzinski won’t name starting quarterback

The Cleveland Browns did not draft a quarterback last weekend, but that has apparently not cemented the starting job for last year’s rookie Brandon Weeden. In an interview with 92.3 The Fan, Browns head coach Rob Chudzinski said that he expects the recently added Jason Campbell to compete with Weeden for the starting job. “We’ll just see as we go forward,” said Chudzinski...

Experience should help Jason Campbell win the Browns starting quarterback role this season.

Jason Campbell sees himself as the Browns starting quarterback, not the second string backup to Brandon Weeden. All Campbell has to do, is play it smart throughout training camp and through the preseason. If he does that, Chudzinski has little choice but to name Campbell as the teams starting quarterback. Campbell should be able to use his 8 years experience in the NFL to beat out...

Browns head coach Rob Chudzinski isn't committing to Weeden as starter just yet

Cleveland Brown head coach Rob Chudzinski is playing this one real safe. Although the team chose not to draft a quarterback like most thought they would, he is still hesitant to name Brandon Weeden the starter. It may be the right way to go to keep the 2nd-year QB on his toes, but even if it's not being said, Weeden will likely be the starter. You think they'll really give...

Browns rumors: Jason Campbell could be starting quarterback

The Cleveland Browns aren’t committing to 2012 first-round draft pick Brandon Weeden as their starting quarterback, leaving the door open for veteran backup Jason Campbell. As a result, Mary Cabot Lodge of The Plain Dealer says talks of Campbell receiving a legitimate shot at winning the starting gig is more than lip service. Lodge adds that the Browns are hesitant to call Weeden...

Browns fans who think Weeden fits Chud’s system better than Campbell may be sadly mistaken.

If you haven’t seen the trend in Cleveland Browns football by now, you haven’t been paying attention. I get a laugh out of all the people who want to say how Brandon Weeden fits Rob Chudzinski and Norv Turner’s system better than Jason Campbell does. What people aren’t thinking about is the fact that these new Cleveland Coaches hand-picked Jason Campbell to come to Cleveland...
