Maybe he doesn't, in which case, the sooner we get someone else the better. It's not like Weeden lit up the league last year, he flashed, but lots of QBs flash. What he didn't do was play well consistently, or show a steady upward trend of reading defenses and exploiting weaknesses. It might be better coaching, but again, competition should not hurt. Exhibit 1A, Russell Wilson and Matt Flynn. Speaking of, what are the options for bringing in some competition. Alex Smith or Matt Flynn would be alright with me, we've got the cap, might as well spend some of it if the guaranteed money isn't that big. And if the coaches believe those guys can fit and excel in Cleveland. Put 'em up against Weeden and see what happens.If they don't want to go that route, I wouldn't blink twice in using our first pick on a QB. Matter of fact, if I were GM, I'd use my first or second pick in every draft on a QB until I found one. It's a roll of the dice, but until you Yahtzee a QB, you're going nowhere anyway. Fill in around that pick with whatever else you can get and free agents.
