Daily Dawg Tags: No clear starting QB in Week 14


Spanning the virtual globe to bring you the latest news about the Cleveland Browns and the NFL – these are your Daily Dawg Tags for Thursday, Dec. 1.

It is nice that the Cleveland Browns are off this Sunday, as it gives fans a week off from what has been a miserable season.

After using more quarterbacks in 12 games than some teams use in two decades, the Browns once again don’t have a clear starting quarterback for the team’s next game.

Robert Griffin III, Josh McCown and Cody Kessler are all available to start, making this feel like training camp all over again. Although at least the team hadn’t lost any games yet in July.

Griffin looks like the favorite mostly because he is the one who has played the least, giving Hue Jackson some hope that he can get the team that much-needed single victory in 2016. Given Griffin can stay healthy, he will have four chances to do so.

That is a lot to ask of a notoriously fragile quarterback, but it is the Browns’ best hope to avoid an 0-16 season.

Let’s take a look at that and more in a Thursday edition of the Daily Dawg Tags.
