Browns Daily Wrap: One more at home

Posted Dec 10, 2013

On Tuesday’s edition of “Cleveland Browns Daily, Driven by Liberty Ford,” co-hosts Vic Carucci and Nathan Zegura discussed the future of Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler. Vic and Nathan were also joined by former Browns running back Greg Pruitt to elaborate on the tough loss against the New England Patriots, and to get Greg his two cents on what the Browns need to do going forward. Je’Rod Cherry made his daily appearance and weighed in on the possibility of Cutler becoming a member of the Browns and how it would affect the team.

Browns tight end Jordan Cameron also sat down with Jamir Howerton, of, to express his confidence in this team moving on and how they have been able to stay resilient.

Here are some highlights:

Nathan Zegura: “There are options that don’t have to come with a high price tag and there are opportunities. You want to see this Browns team get a good victory and against a good Chicago bears team.  The talent is there and the standout players are there for the Cleveland Browns to build around that foundation and it’s exciting to see the additions to make to those superstars. The thing to remember is the great quarterback Class of 2015. If you bring Jay Cutler in, you are hoping to go to the playoffs. If you bring him in, you are not worried about going to the draft the following season.”

Vic Carucci: “I don’t think there is any doubt that (Bears quarterback) Josh McCown is playing better football than most quarterbacks in the NFL (in the place of the injured Cutler). Josh McCown is a hot hand coming to Cleveland. I wouldn’t be opposed to a scenario (with the Browns) that had something maybe working out with Jay Cutler from Chicago and still draft a quarterback. I’m still not opposed to throwing multiple assets at the quarterback position. Why not? Why not take a good run at that now and put things in place? The other thing to look at from a business-model standpoint, it isn’t consistent with the Browns to go that max level because whoever is bringing in Cutler is paying a lot financially.”

Greg Pruitt: “It was a tough loss (to the Patriots) and now you have to try to benefit from that. The Browns can compete with anybody, and Sunday we saw an example of that. You have to stay in the game and realize where you are and if they would have stayed in the game all the drama would be eliminated. What they can learn from the Patriots’ loss can help us win three or four games in the future. You have to review it and look at the situation to see what you should do next time. The season is not over and the Browns need to pick up and play at a higher level and they need to find confidence in themselves. I am truly encouraged that we are on the right track. I look forward to next year and getting a start on being able to compete for a playoff position. I think we are much closer than we were a year ago to be a team to compete despite the current record.”

Jordan Cameron: “Our team is very resilient and very tough and we keep battling and fighting back and are able to prepare each week. The Bears are great team and it’s going to be a great game and it’s going to be very physical. We want to show our fans what we are made of and end on a positive note and put this week together and continue battling.”

Je'Rod Cherry: “Jay Cutler can make throws and make plays. My hesitancy with him is the leadership aspects; he doesn’t show up enough for me with the amount of money he will be asking for. Jay Cutler should do the unselfish thing and say, ‘Take this ride,’ and sit back for the ride (with Josh McCown) and see what will happen. Jay Cutler comes off like a spoiled brat quarterback rather than a leader quarterback.”
