According to Todd Haley, the Browns quarterbacks room is “probably one of the best – if not the best – quarterbacks rooms.”
“This is probably one of the best – if not the best – quarterbacks rooms, in general, that I’ve had,” Haley said, via Brown.com. “The group, in general, is what I’m excited about. I think that it’s an intelligent, intelligent group, with ability to throw the football and make plays with their legs, some of them. When you have that, I think that good things happen. Competition is created in the room, even though they’re working hard together to help each other and get better as a group.”
Haley also spoke highly of Tyrod Taylor and the job he’s done up to this point.
“I thought that Tyrod has done a tremendous, tremendous job of establishing himself as the leader of this offense. His car is there every morning in his spot when I get here in the morning, and it’s there when I’m leaving,” Haley said. “That’s what you’re looking for in the leader of your offense. I think that he’s done a great job with understanding the terminology, concepts and all of the different things. Like I said, we threw a lot at him. He’s more of a show what to do, more than by talking. I’ve really been impressed and encouraged by him.”
