I had been told that Brandon Weeden did not look very good through the first two days of OTAs and this was confirmed on Thursday. Weeden himself admitted this was his worst day of the week. He struggled to find the open read on many throws, missed a few open receivers and had multiple miscommunications with his wide outs.
Jason Campbell didn’t look much better. While Weeden throws a better ball, Campbell seemed more comfortable finding the correct read. Once he found that read, however, he did not consistently deliver the ball in a place that led receivers away from the defender. It was a rough day for the QBs.
I wanted to hire coordinators who had NFL experience. In meeting with Pat, it was one of those "is this too good to be true" moments… We just seemed to hit it off… I asked Pat, "where do you see yourself?" and he said "I just want to win." … Pat’s office is right next to mine and I know his door is always open… His personality, his mind set, it was a slam-dunk for me.
