06:32 PM ET 01.23 | When Chip Kelly was rumored to be close to becoming the next head coach of the Cleveland Browns, it was reported that Colt McCoy would be a part of the new offense and not Brandon Weeden. When Kelly went to Philadelphia rather than Cleveland, the mindset on Weeden apparently hasn't changed, as Rob Chudzinski said it's "premature" to call Weeden the starter in 2013. Chudzinski comes from Carolina, where he had one of the most mobile quarterbacks in the NFL in Cam Newton. New offensive coordinator Norv Turner also likes his quarterbacks to be semi-mobile and both men seem to be high on former Texas Longhorns quarterback and current Browns backup Colt McCoy. But with the new regime in town, the option of drafting a mobile quarterback in this year's draft isn't out of the question. However while the duo seems to be down on Weeden, they are still impressed with his skill-set and are simply saying the job is up for grabs. That's not totally a slight against Weeden, rather it's just the nature of the beast right now in Cleveland.

With a few more key players on offense the Browns maybe looking at 8-8 next season or better.

Weeden will be the QB anyway. Even if they start him, Colt McCoy won't last three games before someone knocks his head off. McCoy kinda leads with his chin....
