Weeden: "My play wasn't good at times."

May 20, 2013 -- 8:17am

By Aaron Goldhammer |


Browns QB Brandon Weeden joined "The Really Big Show" on ESPN 850 WKNR on Friday morning to discuss his off-season and whether he thinks he will be the starter in 2013. 

What do you think of the new offense?

"I'm getting coached every single play...Guys are really confident in the routes they are running, they're confident in the schemes up front, whatever it may be. I love this system. I think Norv Turner is great for everybody involved."

Do you like the fact that the new coaching staff is making everyone earn their starting job?

"This is a win now league. This league is all about W's. Whether you win by one or 40, it doesn't matter...Every team across the league, if you're not a guy that's getting it done, they'll find guys to replace you. You've got to go out and prove that you're the guy. You've got to prove that you can make a team better."

Do you feel threatened by competition?

"I'm worried about me. If I worry about other stuff that's going on around me, it's tough to get out there and function and be the guy; be the quarterback I want to be. I'm worried about myself. I didn't listen to all the draft stuff."

Do you have a chip on your shoulder going into this season?

"Last year was kind of an eye opener for me because I've never really been through a season like that in any sport: basketball, baseball, or football. I've faced adversity, don't get me wrong, but the roller coaster of an NFL season in grueling.  You only win five games. You have some rough patches. My play wasn't good at times. Looking back at the tape, I don't want to go through that again."
