From the 1/27 column, not to advance my opinion of Weeden, but just more data for the board:

• “Brandon Weeden is (nearly) 30 years old, and he is not accurate — you could see in his (throwing) motion that he is a (former) baseball pitcher. He’s fairly athletic, but he does not see the field well. If you are going to develop one, why not take a chance on a younger guy.”

SD:

Not withstanding that a QB need have the ability to spin the bottle in the first place unlike  a hump on this roster I need not name .

Accuracy is a three fold exercise , when a QB has confidence in what he is doing , he will pull the trigger on time and on target as he anticipates a reasonable degree of success .

When a younger QB is badgered and placed in a posistion where he's damned if he does and damned if he doesn't it creates hesitation , and caution which leads to staring down receivers and waiting to see if they're open rather than boldy throwing them open,

and

Thirdly  which is the simplest but most important , true pinpoint thread the needle type throws are rooted deep in the auspices of proper footwork , timing ,repetition and confidence  .

Weeds came from a system which used the shotgun , and his best throws and the  ones he had the most confidence in were outside routes , yet he was repeatedly asked to force the ball inside in traffic  in congested areas  from under center no less  with telegraphed routes in three step drops .

Its one thing to label the results quite another to render a competent decision whether these faults are correctable or not .

Find me the author who says this kid is a hopeless case , then we can talk.

Com'mon Game, you're reaching here.

Weeden was a 70% passer in college and now suddenly he's inaccurate? What could have happened? He got Shurmurized, that's what.

Weeden was one of 4 starting rookies on offense, throwing to inexperienced WR's and a TE who had ringing in his ears for half the season(Watson). That you or anyone else would use that as some kind of proof that BW can't play is ridiculous.

And again, who is this mysterious "younger" guy? Name him.

Wasn't my opinion, its the opinion of an unnamed scout or FO person. I brought it forward because its a comment that's Browns related, nothing more. No agenda, just an interesting tidbit. One person's opinion, to be taken with as much salt as you like.
