10:32 AM ET 06.16 | The Browns were very pleased with how Brandon Weeden threw the ball and just seemed more confident in minicamp. The coaches were excited about his ability to get the ball downfield -- and how several receivers responded in the new up-tempo passing game. Now, the coaches are challenging Weeden to study the new playbook harder than ever before. This is his chance to establish himself as a starting quarterback. If he fails with Norv Turner and Rob Chudzinski calling the plays and drawing up the Xs and Os, that's on him. No more excuses about learning an offense not fitted to his skills.

A Brandon Weedon thread when the Pats are selling Tebow Jerseys on their team web site for $99.95? That just ain't right.

I think there will be a lot of improvement this year.

The earliest you can go on Social Security is 62. Weeden is 29.

Norv can take a QB a long way, reacting fluidly when game plans go awry. This is the best chance Weeden will ever have.

Nobody succeeds in Cleveand.
