Chud Won’t Rule Out Trading Weeden/McCoy


Cleveland Browns Football News – NFL Coverage – cleveland.com.

 

When pressed, Coach Chud won’t commit to keeping either Brandon Weeden or Colt McCoy in Cleveland, and all signs seem to point to him leaving the possibility of replacing them (one or both) via the draft or free agency. And why should he?  Though there are those in Cleveland who are fond of Weeden and/or McCoy, the reality is that neither is going to be an elite NFL quarterback, and neither is the long term answer to the most important position in a franchise.  Weeden, even if he does get better, is just simply too old to invest in long term, and McCoy does lack the physical traits and arm strength of upper echelon quarterbacks.  Why shouldn’t the Browns go out and find a better solution, either short or long term to their constant quarterback woes.  From my perspective, the sooner you admit a mistake, the sooner you can correct it.  In my opinion, drafting Weeden was a mistake.  Using a first round pick on him was a disaster, and drafting another rookie quarterback to replace the incumbent McCoy was just the wrong move.  The sooner we move on, the better.
