For the past few seasons the Cleveland Browns have used the excuse that the team is young. It didn’t take long for new rookie head coach Rob Chudzinski to catch on. After the beating his team took at the hands of Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts Saturday night, Chudzinski was quick to jump on the young team bandwagon.
Nothing the Cleveland Browns did in the game looked good. Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden couldn’t sustain a drive to save his own life in the game. Chudzinski and Turner have spent their entire time in Cleveland building this immobile old guy up.
Weeden is anything but young, he turns 30 soon after the season starts and as they say it is too late to teach an old Dawg new tricks. Weeden looks scared each time he is under pressure. He completely losses all accuracy and still has major problems reading the defense.
The Browns looked horrible in their first game against a team with a half way decent pass rush. Chudzinski has been lucky this far in his first NFL head coaching job. He won his first two preseason games and he didn’t have to face the media after his team looked terrible.
His first mistake as the team’s head coach, was naming Brandon Weeden as the team’s starting quarterback without seeing the guy play against the Colts. Weeden missed wide open receivers and showed that he is still unable to read a defense. Now that Chud has named him as his starter, he can only lose face if he changes his mind.
Nothing the Browns did in Saturday’s game looked good. Special team’s started off the game with poor coverage and the Browns defense was poor in their pass coverage. The Browns offense was never able to get anything going and now other team’s on their schedule this season will look at the game film and know all they have to do is pressure Weeden.
The Browns already knew how to lose football games Mr. Chudzinski. They have made a living out of it since returning to the NFL in 1999. So what lessons can come out of this hammering the team took in Indianapolis?
