Cleveland Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden has looked like a changed man as he’s taken hold of the offense under new offensive coordinator Norv Turner.

Weeden has started both preseason games and completed 18/25 passes (72 percent) for 229 yards and three touchdowns. He’s led the Browns on five scoring drives (three touchdowns and two field goals) in six possessions.

Sounds like someone who would have been named the starter by now, right?

Not Browns Head Coach Rob Chudzinski, who said today that Weeden’s competition with Jason Campbell:


In his last preseason game vs. the Detroit Lions, Weeden connected on TD passes of 10 and 5 yards to tight end Jordan Cameron in the first half as the Browns opened a 17-0 lead. Weeden finished 8/12 for 117 yards, and looks like a legitmate NFL quarterback after he looked anything but as a rookie last year.

It’s his job to lose, and with those numbers, he’d have to do a lot to lose it at this point.
