Cleveland Browns OT Joe Thomas expressed his frustration about rumors the team would relieve head coach Rob Chudzinski of his duties. The team later fired the coach Sunday, Dec. 29, following the Week 17 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. "You look at the great franchises. They don't fire your coach after the first season. You can't do it," Thomas said. "It sets everything back. You just hit the reset button. Anytime you hit the reset button, it severely damages the organization, and it lengthens the amount of time that it takes to get back to the playoffs and turn the team into a consistent winner."

Browns | Will wait on naming starting QB

Mon, 23 Sep 2013 09:13:17 -0700

Cleveland Browns head coach Rob Chudzinski said he will wait on naming a starting QB for the team's Week 4 game. Chudzinski wants to get updates on QB Brandon Weeden's (thumb) health, watch game film, and coach his players before making a decision.

Fantasy Tip: With Brian Hoyer coming off a strong game, it would make sense for the Browns to go back to him in Week 4. Still, both quarterbacks don’t have much fantasy value at this point.

Browns | Coach defends going away from the running game

Tue, 10 Sep 2013 13:17:36 -0700

Cleveland Browns head coach Rob Chudzinski defended getting away from the running game in the team's Week 1 game. "You can always second-guess everything when you don't win," said Chudzinski. "We had some things we liked. Some of them came up, some didn't quite as well. And they tightened up a little bit against the run when we got into the third quarter." Chudzinski also talked about how it is important to keep RB Trent Richardson fresh throughout the game. "We want to make sure that he stays fresh as well and that's part of the plan," said Chudzinski.

Fantasy Tip: Even with a mediocre outing in Week 1, Richardson is still a must start running back in every format.

"At times, we got cute," Smith said. "We did things that weren't necessarily us, like the underutilizing of [running back] Mike Tolbert. But we're out of that. The past is the past."

Browns | Want to create quarterback competition

Tue, 19 Mar 2013 12:58:55 -0700

The Cleveland Browns want to create a quarterback competition, possibly from within, according to offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski. "I see it as creating competition," Chudzinski said. "That can be from a number of different places. We have some guys that are there. We're gonna coach them all, coach them hard. We're gonna give them all opportunities to show what they can do. "So I think there'll be competition from within the room. And then, the other part of it is, of the great players I've been fortunate to be around, competition comes from within, too. I think as coaches we have to bring that out in our guys. Being around Norv (Turner) and seeing him working with quarterbacks – and my style is similar to Norv's in that way – he's been able to do that and I have no doubt he'll be able to bring that out in our guys"

Fantasy Tip: It is safe to assume that Brandon Weeden will be the front-runner in any quarterback competition going into the 2013 season.
