Team Report Card: Browns Still Need Help

The Browns had a lot of questions going into last season and most were left unanswered.  But there were some bright spots like rookie RB Trent Richardson. 


Cleveland Browns

2012 Record:  5-11

 

Grade: D

 

The Good:

  • - Rookie RB Trent Richardson is a force to be reckoned with. 
  • - New Head Coach, Rob Chudzinski is an offensive mastermind
  • - 8th rated pass defense.

 

The Bad:

  • - QB Weeden threw the 3rd most INTs (17) and only for the 24th most TDs (14)
  • - Offense was 25th in total yards.
  • - 1-7 in roads games.

 

 

The Future:

  • First Draft Position # 6  - OLB Jarvis Jones or QB Matt Barkley
  • Free Agent Targets – OT Branden Albert, TE Fred Davis and WR Wes Welker
  • Trade:   If they miss out on WR in free agency, they should make a trade for a veteran to add stability to their receiving corps.

 

Do you think QB Brandon Weeden is the answer for the Browns?

    Keep Weedon for another year. You need to improve other spots in this offseason and in a draft where there aren't many good rookie quarterbacks available. Get rid of Weeden after this year though.
