According to Chudzinski, Turner will be calling the plays while also serving as the quarterbacks coach. And while no decision has been made on who the starting quarterback will be in 2013, Turner did have good things to say about Brandon Weeden.
“I looked at things where I know he needs to improve, needs to get better to do the things we want him to do, but I think he has the lot of the skill set we’re looking for,” said Turner. “This is early in terms of the evaluation, but he does have a big arm and he can throw the ball all over the field.”
As a rookie head coach, having a veteran like Turner calling the plays was a no-brainer move by Chudzinski. It takes pressure off of him while putting the offense in the hands of a coach who has been there many times before. And if Turner/Chudzinski can help straighten Weeden out, the prospects of the Browns’ offense in 2013 are looking very good.
