Browns Will Stick With Weeden

In his press conference, head coach Rob Chudzinski stated that Brandon Weeden would remain the Cleveland Browns quarterback.  He did not dismiss the idea of Jason Campbell playing but emphasized the idea that it was just one game and Weeden made plays that allowed them to win the game against the Buffalo Bills.  Rather than going to Campbell, Chudzinski wants to focus on the good things Weeden can do and eliminate what he described as ‘critical mistakes’.

More than anything, the fact that the Browns are stuck with Weeden is an indication that all of their options are bad.  They found some solid play in Brian Hoyer but getting lucky twice in one season is just not realistic.  Campbell has been a mediocre quarterback for years, so the Browns are trying to make it incredibly clear what they have in Weeden.  No one expects a miracle and the Browns know full well they need to draft a quarterback this year, but they have to get through the rest of the season.

The Browns offense cannot run with any consistency, but they have been able to move the ball when they have gotten just average play from the quarterback position.  Their defense is doing enough to keep them in games and potentially win them, but they need enough offense to win.  Weeden, Campbell, or a random quarterback off of the street; they know they need a quarterback and an answer is not coming during the season.
