Franchise QBs - gotta have one.
Give this guy a see-gar!
And the rumor is that is actually what the new owner is driving for.
Ya gotta have a QB, and the Browns, over the last 14 years have failed miserably.
I've been a life-long Brown fan since around 1965 (remember when Kelly took over for Brown). And what is funny, when it comes to us Brown fans, is that if you ask them who was the last really good QB for the Browns, they go back to Kosar (80s). Now that was a long time ago. Kosar was good.... but he wasn't that good. He was surrounded by a lot of talent.
The Browns reconfigured the defense in the off-season and, IMO, will be rock solid. Of course this year may not show that simply because they'll be worn out being on the field so much from all the three-and-outs the offense is gonna put up.
Most Brown fans have been screaming at this management for years to start prioritizing the offensive side.
And while it stinks, since we've only two games deep into this season, I think that is what they are now attempting to do, going into next season, with the offense.
Richardson and Weeden were Holgrem's boys. A new owner comes in, cleans house on the coaching staff, and it's only natural they want to acquire (build) with players that fit their scheme. I like Chudzinski and Turner (offensive coordinator). And Richardson didn't fit into the type of RB scheme that Chud wants. And Weeden will be gone too.
Interesting article that projects what the Brown's two 1st round picks will be at..... http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/eye-on-...-2nd-6th-picks
So we'll see.
The initial shock has worn off, and I'm back to my normal Brown fan numb state. LOL
