NORTH CANTON, Ohio - Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan thinks the Browns are moving in the right direction.
Ryan spoke at an event at Walsh University in North Canton Thursday, taking on typical campaign issues like jobs and the economy. However, at the start of his speech he delved into another always contentious issue, football.
The Republican congressman from Wisconsin, who called himself a big football fan, brought up the Browns' preseason matchup with the Green Bay Packers.
Ryan praised Browns' rookie quarterback Brandon Weeden.
"I think you've got a good quarterback. This guy was great at Oklahoma State," Ryan said.
He continued to say he sees a "good future" for the Browns.
Many NFL experts disagree with Ryan, predicting the Browns to finish in the AFC North's cellar. Some think they'll finish as poorly as 1-15 with Weeden at the helm of the offense.
You can form your own opinions as the Browns square off with the Packers Thursday at 8 p.m.
Ryan also talked about the economy and a plan he says that will put more people to work thanks to less government red tape. He also talked about Medicare and the need for a new energy policy utilizing more of our domestic resources.
