Not much has gone right for the Cleveland Browns this season, but for the first time, in a very long time, the quarterback position isn’t an issue.
Cody Kessler has played well, especially considering the circumstances, and he’s done to keep his job as Cleveland’s signal caller the rest of the season.
On Sunday against the Titans, Kessler rallied the Browns to a furious last minute comeback, scoring twice in less than two minutes, but falling short 28-26. Kessler set a career high with 336 yards passing and two touchdowns.
On the season, both replacing injured QBs and starting, Kessler has fired four touchdown passes while completing 65% of his passes.
A third round pick by the Browns, Kessler has played well so far this season.
With another lost year for the team, now is as good a time as ever to find out if the Browns have their QB of the future in Cody Kessler.
Yes they added Robert Griffin III in the offseason, and Josh McCown plays well when he gets the chance to, but this is long term here.
All those quarterbacks for all those years since 1999, from Couch to Dorsey to Holcomb to Hoyer and everybody else in between, this is about finding out if the Browns finally have their signal caller.
Let’s see what the kid’s got.
He’s earned the starting job not just for now, but for the remainder of this season.
