Who Will Be the Browns' Starting Quarterback in 2013?


Now that the Browns have signed Jason Campbell, current starter Brandon Weeden finds himself smack dab in the middle of a good ole’ fashioned quarterback competition.

Campbell is a veteran with plenty of experience, and had two consecutive 3,000 yard passing seasons with the Redskins. He has shown glimpses of a better career, but was either surrounded by marginal talent at the time or injured.

Weeden had his own positive glimpses in 2012, but regressed as the season wore on. Though he is 29 years old and will turn 30 during next season, it’s important to note that he was a rookie last year and new head coach Rob Chudzinski’s offense seems to better suit Weeden’s talents.

But this new front office didn’t draft Weeden and therefore has no reason to keep him. If the Jimmy Haslam/Joe Banner/Mike Lombardi triumvirate isn’t high on him now, they can dump him without any regret.

Therefore, the competition to be the Browns’ starting quarterback is wide open. Who wins it?

    Come on, let’s get off Weeden’s ass. The guy had ONE year in the NFL. As a life-long Browns fan, I know the sense of urgency, but let’s not lose our minds. Let’s see how he does in a new offense, one better suited to his skill set. He deserves better that the Browns have given McCoy. Let’s cut Colt loose and let him find a team that can use and appreciate him.

    Look at some old film of Weeden at Okie State. He ran the hurry up offense to perfection with defenses having to call time out just to get new players in or catch their breath. And the Okie State offense was certainly a vertical passing game, with an average TD drive of less than two minutes. He often had 500 yards and 4 TD’s in less than three quarters. If he gets comfortable with his offensive unit, receivers especially, he will do just fine. Give him a little protection and watch the show.
