is the best bridge quarterback the Cleveland Browns have employed since Gary Danielson in 1985. The Tyrod Taylor that was on the field Sunday at FirstEnergy Stadium is also likely going to be the Tyrod Taylor that Browns fans will see all season , which doesn’t negate the opening sentence.While the weather certainly played a factor as Taylor completed just 37.5 percent of his passes (15-of-40), that shouldn’t make fans believe that a different Taylor will line up under center next week against the New Orleans Saints. Taylor under threw several passes against the Pittsburgh Steelers, was hesitant to take chances down the field and looked to run rather than wait for a play to develop.
