#Browns HC Rob Chudzinski on decision to name Brandon Weeden as his starting QB:
"As part of this week, with the exception of
right guard, corner and the kicker and punter positions, we will start the group that we are expecting and planning on starting at the beginning of the season.
That also includes the quarterback position, where Brandon Weeden will be our starting quarterback for this team.
A couple of points about my decision in terms of the quarterback: number one, all three quarterbacks have shown very well. I have seen improvement, significant improvement, out of all of them and have become very comfortable with them all.
(Browns offensive coordinator) Norv (Turner) has done a great job with them. There is great chemistry in that room, and I expect that to continue. It was important for me and for us to go through the process and this process that we follow, the plan that we followed throughout the offseason and started in April in the meetings, carried out into OTAs on the field, the multiple minicamps that we had, the number of weeks in training camp that we had, as well as the first two preseason games so that we could get these guys and see them react to a lot of different situations that would come up and how they would handle them and so forth.
Based on this process, Brandon has earned this job. That’s extremely important to me that he did. He has gained my complete trust. He has gained his teammates complete trust and this organization’s trust. We are all behind him and we will all be there to support him.
As far as the timing, I felt like the timing was right in this process as we are shifting and just completed our training camp and broke camp
the other day."
