In two weeks Brian Hoyer has gotten his Cleveland Browns 2 wins. Yes, we said his Cleveland Browns. This local Cleveland kid has found a home to play quarterback in the NFL. In 5 years of floating around from team to team, there is little doubt the Cleveland Browns need to stick with him as the team’s starter.
Hoyer led his Cleveland Browns to their second victory in a row, over their divisional rival Cincinnati Bengals. He did so by being perfect in the 1st quarter of play, Hoyer went 8-8 and couldn’t miss. He lead the Browns to two touchdown, he now has 400% more passing touchdowns in 2 games than Brandon Weeden had in 2 games.
Hoyer completed 25 of the 38 passes he threw, had 2 touchdowns and was sacked 3 times. He didn’t throw one interception today. He played a great game and was able to out play the highly ranked Bengals quarterback. Hoyer finished the game with a 103.9 quarterback rating. He played like a seasoned veteran and he should remain the starting quarterback in Cleveland, through the end of the 2013 season.
Hoyer knows how to get the job done, and that is something the Browns fans haven’t seen from the teams former first round pick Weeden.
Cleveland is now tied for first place in the AFC North and they face the Buffalo Bills Thursday night. Hoyer knows he has a short week to prepare and he is immediately turning his focus to the next game.
He has little time for celebration and has to get his team ready to play on Thursday night. Hoyer threw for 269 yards today and now has 590 yards on the season. Hoyer has thrown the ball for 74 more yards than the big armed Weeden has thrown for in his 2 starts this season.
Hoyer has clearly out performed Weeden on the field and he has 2 wins to show for it. The Cleveland Browns look like a totally different football team with Brian Hoyer on the field.
That is why they should say, In Hoyer we trust because Brandon Weeden was a bust.
