By LG

Browns starting quarterback and we use the term quarterback loosely, is starting to drive die-hard Browns fans away. I have received messages that said, they will not buy another ticket to a Browns game as long as Brandon Weeden is the Browns starting quarterback.

Weeden has now lost 11 of the 16 games he has played in for the Cleveland Browns. The fans are starting to feel that Weeden has poor leadership capabilities. They say Weeden hangs his head and pouts even when he has a good play.

The fans are already tired of seeing Weeden behind center. The fans can see that Weeden has poor decision making process and he continues to make bad throws in the game. He threw 3 interception in the Browns home opener and he fails to put the ball in the right place for his receivers to be successful.

Brandon Weeden is not an NFL caliber quarterback. He was passed by 21 other teams in the 2012 NFL draft. He should have never been taken in the first round of an NFL draft and the Browns new regime knows the former management made a mistake.

Weeden is now driving some of the best fans in the NFL away. We knew it would only be a matter of time before that happened and now we can see it is already starting after only one game in the 2013 season.

If Weeden is the starter, these fans can see the writing on the wall already, and it points to another losing season…..

    Then they are just like you LG. Not real fans.

      We are as real as they get. One fan that said it drives from Cincy to every home game……How far do you travel to see them play?

       
      • keith

        If I drove from Cincy I would be pissed too. But I would also have a sense of realism and know that Weeden was not on his own here. It was a team effort, coaching too, and the conditioning coach needs firing if he thinks that lot were ready for this game. Real fans are angry at the loss, but do not give up on their team after one loss. There were positives here LG. Try looking for them for once.

         
        • LG

          Keith the only positive I see is the defense can now stop the run. They still have no secondary and they don’t have line-backers to drop back into pass coverage. Flacco gonna kill us…

           
          • Keith

            If they persist with Buster Skrine, Flacco will kill us. He does not belong on an NFL team and is an easy target when the opposition needs something. But in the first half against the Dolphins the defense was dominant. If they can do that for 4 quarters they might just get us a win, possibly in Baltimore next week against a team that actually looks worse than us.

             
          • LG

            They can’t do it for 4 quarters if the offense continues with the 3 and outs…..What were we on 3rd downs, 1 for 15….?

             
          • Jeff

            hey Lg how do we know your not being a liar? You say fans are telling you they wont buy a ticket, can you show some proof of that?

             
          • LG

            Are you on facebook at all Jeff?

             
    • jackrabbit21

      Stop with the “real fan” cr&p. Browns don’t deserve fans. I guess you enjoy hanging out with people who treat you like cr&p.

       
      • Keith

        I don’t enjoy hanging out on here with ‘fans’ like you, because that is exactly what you are doing, treating me like crap with comments like that. You could always support somebody else you know….. then again, you probably do already, and they are welcome to you.

         
        • jackrabbit21

          You said ” … treating me like crap with comments like that. ”

          WOW! Touchy? Look above. I was responding to Arthur not you. Should I treat you like crap now because you made a mistake and don’t know how to read threads? Chill out!!!! Be upset with the Browns’ organization for shoving more Weeden crap to Browns’ supporters that has already been shown to us last year. Wash, rinse, repeat.

           
          • Keith

            Waaah. And I promised myself I wouldn’t cwy Jackwabbit. Tch. What a guy.
            I am upset at yesterdays performance, of course, but I am not deserting the team because of it like you are. You hated this team before the game wabbit, all they did yesterday was give you reason to claim justification. The Browns just don’t need ‘fans’ like you. To go as OTT as you have on the strength of one result is pretty sad, but then having read your other posts over the last few weeks, (I never saw you on here before), it was what I expected from you. You don’t seem to want to understand the game and have found yourself a home on the most negative sportspage around. Oh, and calling stuff ‘crap’ on a forum?. Pretty classless Jack. Classless.

             
          • Arthur

            Leave me out of this. If Jack wants to look this silly let him do it. I only said that if a fan is giving up on a team after one loss then he isnt a real fan. He isnt. Its as simple as that. If Jack doesnt agree then thats up to him. The browns dont treat me like crap and I will keep on supporting them because I dont overreact after one game.

             
          • jackrabbit21

            You started it Arthur with the 1st comment. Remember … “Then they are just like you LG. Not real fans.” And now you want to be left out of it. Too funny!

            BTW Keith – I was on here all last year. My name was “Bob” back then. I changed my name because someone else started using “Bob”. Funny, I don’t remember you last year.

            Keith & Arthur – Interesting how you both questioned real fans first and when someone gives it back you guys, you get bent out of shape.

             
    • jackrabbit21

      Another thing about your “real fan” comment. How did you like the Browns leaving for Baltimore in the 90′s? If you are a “real fan” I guess you are a Ravens fan.

      See they did not care about their “real fans”, so why should you care to be a “real fan” ?

       
      • LG

        That looks like what the team is trying to do again….Only this time they play like crap hoping people grow to hate them then leave when JHIII sells the team……

         
        • jackrabbit21

          That’s what I’ve thought all along. Haslam bought the team to sell the team. How does the Los Angeles _____ sound?

          Also, play a bad QB, get Manziel next year, ruin Manziel the following year. Wash, rinse, repeat.

           
        • Keith

          I was a Browns fan long before 95, and will be one long after you are gone. I didn’t enjoy them moving to Baltimore, but that was one man who did that, and he paid for it I think. This was one game. One game. And it has attracted this level of criticism and hate. Do you call that being a fan?. Get real. 15 other teams will have lost this week. I have not seen any other group of ‘fans’ behaving like this on any other page.

           
          • LG

            No it is not one game it is a way of life with this team since 99…..

             
          • jackrabbit21

            Hey, did you see last season. Wash, rinse, repeat. No more excuses left for Weeden.

             
        • Paul in LA

          the team is not going anywhere. Enough with the buy them and move them theories. Next you are going to tell me 9/11 was an inside job. The Browns belong to Cleveland, for better or worse.

           
          • LG

            For now they belong in Cleveland but placing your trust in Haslam is something that can set you up to get blind sided….

             
        • Jeff

          Yes i am on facebook. sorry it took so long to respond i have been working many many long hours

           
  2. Keith

    He has lost 11 games, not 12.

     
    • LG

      Should I bother to edit it or do you think it will be 12 soon enough?

       
      • keith

        It will be 12 soon enough but I just thought that you should have got it right before writing the article.

         
        • LG

          I counted the 11 losses last year and forgot he missed the last game….I will correct it….

           
  3. RICK

    LG, That’s O.K. It just gives the real fans in Cleveland more tickets. It’s pathetic that they lose a game and it’s the end of the world for you. Did you actually think that they were going to go undefeated. I believe there will be 16 teams with a loss after week one so big deal. The Browns are in first place and all you can do is your usual whining. Have fun with your whiney posts this week.

     
    • LG

      Rick, it isn’t just one loss, this has been taking place since 1999. 201 games played 67 wins…… Come on man it is more than one loss…..It is 134 losses….

       
      • Luke49

        If it has become a Browns tradition to lose the home opener, why is it Weeden’s fault? Give it a rest. No QB no matter how good can effectively operate under the conditions he had Sunday. Weeden can’t and Richardson can’t. I sure wouldn’t have risked Trich, or Weeden for that matter with the ineffective play of the offensive line. As the line play goes so goes the game, always has always will. Your criticism of Cousins in another piece was justified, however its not like he is No. 1 on the depth chart at that position, he just happens to be a scout team guy that had to step up when the ‘two’ guys ahead of him went down. Would the rookie have done better? I suspect we will get to fine out, but again he is not the guy , we will see if he has the answer. The receivers did and overall lousy job, the number of dropped passes was incredible, two interceptions that bounced off the hands of the receivers . Unreal. Sure Weeden wasn’t very sharp, but he seemed to be every bit as sharp or a little sharper than the rest of the team.

         
        • keith

          Can’t argue with any of that Luke. But I am sure LG will find something else to moan about. 6 negative articles already today, and still counting..

           
    • Old goat

      face it rick, weedhead is not NFL caliber QB. It is going to be another losing season if weedhead is at the helm. He should be given a one way ticket to Rickety rick land.

       
      • RICK

        Old goat, I don’t believe that I mentioned Weedens name. You must be confused. I mentioned that we were still in first and that there is alot of whining. I don’t think that I mentioned that he was a NFL claiber QB. Are you that obsessed with Weeden that you have to put words out there that wasn’t said. I think the job can get done by any of the QB’s that we have.

         
    • jackrabbit21

      Another one with the “real fan” BS.

      Again ….. Stop with the “real fan” cr&p. Browns don’t deserve fans. I guess you enjoy hanging out with people who treat you like cr&p.

      Would you by bad beer if it was cr&ppy? How about a bad steak? I guess you would buy cra&ppy steaks because you are loyal to the company who sells cr&ppy steaks.

       
      • jackrabbit21

        That’s, would you BUY bad beer?

        BTW – this team is a business. If they want to make money, they have to sell seats. Let’s see, basic stuff here. Have a good team = sell lots of tickets = make lots of money.

         
        • Keith

          Lets see…. being a ‘fan’ means sticking with your team, taking the losses with the wins, and not abandoning them on the strength of one defeat. Basic stuff that a ‘real fan’ would know. Carry on….

           
          • jackrabbit21

            You mean a “sucker” fan?

             
          • Keith

            Whatever you say. You would know.

             
          • jackrabbit21

            BTW – one defeat? How about the last 14 years of defeat?

             
  4. johnnyV

    I hope they dont buy another ticket. Actually its the fools in the club sections that are POS fans. Their attendance is about 50%, they leave early and they don’t cheer (I know give us something to cheer about).

    Yes, Weeden looked like crapola. Obviously its not all on him. We can only hope that Buster Skrine gets hurt or is released. And the list goes on.

    If this group can’t get Weeden’s act together during the next 5 games then I’ll be convinced that he’ll never work out.

    Meanwhile, the Browns are giving guys like LG an opportunity for crazy comments to get us to read the same old “stuff”.

    Of course Weeden was passed by 21 teams. not every one of them needed a QB. I mean WTF?

     
  5. RICK

    LG, It’s one loss. I see your still dwelling on the past as usual.

     
    • LG

      THE PAST HAS BECOME THE NORM FOR THE BROWNS….

       
      • Old goat

        LG as usual you are right on. the winning tradition of the Browns has been replaced by the losing tradition of the Clowns.

        I have been a fan since 58, and I can only see that as long as the browns allow Weedhead to start or even play, they are more interested in defending their waste of a draft choice on weedhead rather to put a winning team on the field. The OB is more than just a single position on the field, he is the on the field general.

         
        • LG

          Sorry to say it looks that way…..

           
        • Keith

          And a General is only as good as his troops. Weeden was let down by many of his troops yesterday. It will be a different story when the coaching staff actually play the right ‘troops’, and turn up ready for battle.

           
          • jackrabbit21

            Weeden likes to blame everyone else too.

             
  6. RICK

    LG, It looks like you have written them off after ONE game. Thats O.K. because that’s the nature of your business. Once again, They are still in first place after a bad game and so be it. There’s work to do and I believe they are up to the challenge.

     
    • LG

      Rick, they need to switch QB, they need to do it fast or this will be another write off season…..

       
      • Keith

        LG. Is there anything, anything at all, that would result in any praise from you for Weeden?. I just want to find the benchmark. If he threw for 300 yards, with 3 TD’s, no INT’s, and the Browns won, would you write an over the top pro-Weeden piece?. Or would you look at one of the passes that went astray and tell us how every other QB in the NFL would have had 4 TD’s in the game?. Just asking……..

         
        • LG

          Yes I would give him Credit if he has a good game Keith. You must not have been around this site last season cuz after his 5.1 rating in his first game I praised him for improving……Lets face it Keith, Weeden is not and I repeat is not an NFL caliber QB.

           
          • Keith

            Got it LG, and I will remind you of that in time. I thought his 5.1 showing last year was the worst performance i Have ever seen by a Browns QB. Ever. But he got better, and there is more to come. I know may people, (I almost called them fans then… stupid!), have given up on him after his one game this season, but I do think he showed us something yesterday, and it was not that he isn’t good enough. It was that he might actually be growing into the role, and praise from you will follow LG, if only you will open up your little heart and let him in when he deserves it. I will be back to ask for that when the time is right.

             
          • LG

            Keith, I have always prided myself as a fair man. I will praise when praise is warranted…..

             
          • Keith

            LG. With all respect, and I mean this with all sincerity, your ‘pride’ is badly misplaced. If you went to your mirror and asked ‘Mirror, Mirror on the wall, who is the unfairest of them all?’…. it wouldn’t even answer you LG, it would just laugh out loud!.

             
          • LG

            You got to be kidding me Keith. Are you sure you are watching the same team they call the Browns.

             
  7. marty

    LG; You heard it many times before. Management will never admit a mistake.I’ve answered back to many of your articles. Weedon does not have the tools to be a NFL QB.He has no heart for the game. No ability to make things happen. Yes the Browns stunk as a whole, yet the QB has to be a leader to get the team on track.Weedon is a Sissy, the Strawman without a brain.LG, I would say for yopu to mention something positive about the Browns to change their luck. It would be a very short article!

     
    • LG

      Marty I agree with you 100%

       
      • Keith

        And I disagree. Where does that leave us?. What a dilemma.

         
        • LG

          LOL what a Diliemma, not nearly as bad as the one the team we want to win has……LOL thanks for the laugh Keith

           
          • Keith

            Thanks LG. I’m here all season. I hear the tuna’s good.

            LOL

             
  8. stiv marley

    That sound you hear is all the bashing going on in Cleveland! Weeden Sucks! The O-Line sucks!D-Backs Suck! Coach Sucks! The Browns Suck! Did I miss anyone? Another well written article by a sportswriter who “SUCKS” !

     
    • Keith

      I do agree with this though….

       
  9. jackrabbit21

    So slamming the messenger is the right thing to do? Browns sucked yesterday, Weeden sucked yesterday and last year. That is the truth.

     
  10. JohnnyV

    Some folks are trigger happy. Fire the coach, bench the QB..BLA BLA BLA. We’re all frustrated but one game doesn’t make a season.

    Does anyone really think the Browns were headed to the playoffs this year? They’re not the only ones that looked like crap this weekend. Our whole division sucked!

     
    • LG

      Problem is JohnnyV is the Browns will continue to look like crap with Weeden in the pocket…..The other teams will improve and as far as the division goes, the Bengals lost but they scored a lot of points in the game………

       
      • RICK

        Alot of whining for being in first place. Who cares who sucked and who didn’t suck. It’s just one of the losses that we were expected to have. (WASN’t GOING 16&0)whine,whine,whine. Get over a loss and move on.

         
        • LG

          First place are you kdding me Rick, how long do you see every team losing?

    When they do win games I wonder what kind of articles are going to be written, about some soap opera he watched on Monday…..
