In weeks past, Browns coach Hue Jackson has been quick to name a starting quarterback.
But at 0-14 and coming off another less-than-inspired quarterbacking performance from Robert Griffin III, Jackson has flung the door back open for Cody Kessler or Josh McCown for this week’s game against the Chargers.
“Everything’s going to be on the table,” Jackson said, via Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer. “I’m going to look at everything. I just have to. I owe these guys the best opportunity to win in the locker room. With the effort they’re giving me, I have to give back to them as a leader. I have to make sure I’m putting the right people out there for them. . . .
“Everybody. Everybody is in play. Absolutely.”
Had Griffin given them any real reason, he could have had the next two games as an audition for the future. But they’ve scored an average of 11.0 points per game in his three starts, so there’s no compelling reason to keep on with the experiment, the story pointed out. Griffin was better in Week 15 than Week 14, but it hasn't produced a victory.
