Cleveland Browns HC insists Brandon Weeden isn't on short leash


Brandon Weeden was looking to start the season off right, throwing three interceptions wasn’t what he had in mind. Aside from the six sack beating he took from the Miami Dolphins defense he is getting beat up by fans and reporters. Browns’ head coach Rob Chudzinski insists that the Browns will give Weeden time to prove himself and he won’t make any rash decisions.

“I don’t look at it as a leash,” Chudzinski said, via the Cleveland Plain Dealer. “These guys are developing players and they’re learning how to play in this system and I expect us to keep getting better and improving.”

Being sacked six times can’t be blamed on Weeden and can certainly make a quarterback force throws and as a result create interceptions.

“The protection issues were there and that’s something you have to contend with,” said Chudzinski. “I thought Brandon had some ups and downs. I know there are some throws and some reads he’d like to have back. I think the one thing you saw yesterday, you saw his resiliency and toughness. If anybody had questions about that prior to this game, you look at the game and he’s pretty tough and kept bouncing back.”
