Joe Thomas: QB Competition Isn’t Close

Cleveland Browns coach Rob Chudzinski said this week that there is a “close” competition for the starting quarterback job between Brandon Weeden and Jason Campbell, a point which seemed to run counter to the way things have actually been playing out in Cleveland.

Weeden has been running with the ones for quite a while now and there hasn’t been any groundswell of support for Campbell to nudge him out of the way coming out of Cleveland. It doesn’t appear one is about to start either. Left tackle Joe Thomas has a different vantage point on the quarterbacks than his coach and he doesn’t sound like a man who sees a close competition playing out between the guys he’s protecting.
