Browns Want Attacking-Style Offense But Haven't Decided On A Quarterback

The Cleveland Browns have a lot of work to get out of the basement in the AFC North, one of the league's toughest divisions. They're planning to apply an attacking offense but no decisions are being made at quarterback right now.


Though Mike Zimmer was considered for the position, the Cleveland Browns elected to hire former Carolina Panthers offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski, who quickly built an impressive coaching staff to develop a struggling franchise into a competitive organization within one of the league's toughest divisions.

One of those hires is former San Diego Chargers head coach Norv Turner, who Chudzinski said will call the plays in 2013, changing the original plan prior to hiring Turner.

During Friday's press conference during the NFL Combine in Indianapolis, the Browns head coach hinted at the team's offensive philosophy, putting pressure on the defense with an attacking-style offense.

However the team isn't sure about the quarterback position, with Chudzinski telling Mary Kay Cabot with the Cleveland Plain Dealer of a probable competition.

“We have three guys here that provide competition and we’ll leave it open to whatever happens in terms of any other possible scenarios,'' said Chudzinski. "We’re going to look at everything, every possibility to try to make the team better. I’m excited about Brandon.

Obviously Colt has been here, has won games, has some unique abilities himself that I’m excited about. Again, getting all those guys in the building and see what they can do and being around them and really getting a chance to really evaluate them. You can look at tape and evaluate tape, but until you’re around guys, until you understand when you’re asking them to do certain things and seeing how they react to that and how they react on the field and how they play ultimately is what decides how far they can go.”
