People who had the displeasure of watching Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden start the 2013 season already know he has problems playing the position. After week one ESPn has him ranked next to dead last. There is only one quarterback int he NFL with a worse T.Q.R. than Brandon Weeden according to the ESPN ranking system.
Weeden comes into his second NFL season playing just as bad as he did in his first NFL system. This time, the fans can’t blame the Browns coaching staff. The entire coaching staff has been revamped and according to them, they custom-built the Browns offense to fit Weeden’s skill set.
In his last 2 performances it looked like Weeden was going to struggle. The only time he looked half way decent was against a not ready for the season Lions in the preseason and the St. Louis Rams in the preseason. When Weeden faced the pressure of the Colts pass rush in game 3 of the preseason he couldn’t compete on the NFL level and after watching him in the season opener he could compete against a Miami Dolphins team that wasn’t favored to come into the Browns home stadium and win the game.
The Cleveland Browns front office knew they had a problem at the QB position coming into the season and that is why they signed Campbell and Hoyer. The problem now rests on the shoulders of rookie head coach Rob Chudzinski who may have his own problems to fix, but that is the topic of another article.
The Browns may be off to another losing season and it is a shame for the die-hard fans who want to see a winning season. It is going to be difficult for that to happen is the Browns continue to start a struggling Weeden.
