Rob Chudzinski made it aware in his press conference on October 21that he will look into a quarterback change this week with his staff. He also mentioned looking at other starting roles as well. Chudzinski made it aware that he wants to put the best personnel on the field that will help them win games. The Cleveland Brown’s need something after suffering a 31-13 loss last week against a Green Bay offense that was without their top two wide receivers. Cleveland is now on a 2 game losing streak with Brandon Weeden as the starter.
Chudzinski said that the coaching staff would evaluate every position the same way they do each week. The coaches will talk about the performance from the previous game with the individual positions coaches, they will look into position needs based on schemes and personnel reports, and they also take feedback from the players as well. Chudzinski reports that it isn’t all Weeden’s fault, and that there were errors in plays and problems with other players as well. Chudzinski also said, “Brandon needs to play better, but we all need to play better around him.”
This is a change from last week when Chudzinski didn’t even mention a thought about a quarterback change after losing to Detroit. The Browns might see action from backup Jason Campbell. Campbell has played for a multiple of teams, but has seen most of his starting action in Oakland. Campbell has gotten a bit older, but still is able to move outside of the pocket if he needed to. The Browns also have MarQueis Gray as the emergency quarterback. Gray was a starter at quarterback in college but was moved to wide receiver his senior year.
The Browns also could sign another quarterback this week. Free agents such as Tim Tebow, Trent Edwards, David Carr, JaMarcus Russell, Matt Leinart, Patrick White, and Vince Young are all looking for a job. The Browns are stockpiling draft picks to gain a shot at rebuilding in 2014 and get a franchise quarterback with one of their two 1st round draft picks. Whatever the case, the Browns need to find someone to provide a spark like Brian Hoyer did.
