Cleveland head coach Rob Chudzinski has made it official, the Browns are benching Weeden and going to back up quarterback, Jason Campbell to face the 7-0 Kansas City Chiefs this Sunday. Chud said Weeden took the news hard, be he feels Campbell gives the Browns a better chance to win than Weeden Does.
Chud said he likes the things Campbell brings to the table for this game. He is far more mobile than Weeden and the team is going to need that to try and see if they can avoid the heavy pass rush the Chiefs can bring. Chud said the team will evaluate the QB position on a week by week basis.
Chud said he doesn’t want to go back and fourth at the quarterback position. That makes some think Brandon Weeden’s days in a Browns uniform are coming to an end. Why would you keep him on the team, if he can’t do the job?
With the change being made, you have to see the Browns are still in search of the spark to get this team moving in the right direction. There is now way you can say the team is trying to tank the season. If the team was trying to tank the season, they would stick with Weeden as their quarter.
Weeden has lost his starting job with the Browns twice this season. The first one was when he hurt his thumb and then Chud stayed with Hoyer after Weeden was cleared to play. If I am running the Cleveland Browns I would trade Weeden as soon as possible.
