The Cleveland Browns may want to give their former starting quarterback Brandon Weeden a concussion test. He is now delusional. In a recent Plain Dealer interview, Weeeden said; it’s ‘still my football team’ and expects to start again. He also went on to say, I think I played better this year and my confidence is still high.”
Really, where did he play well? He is one of the lowest rated NFL quarterbacks according to ESPN’s TQR system. Weeden may want to reconsider his statements. He has been passed up in just about every category by Hoyer and Weeden failed to win a game this season.
The Cleveland Browns are clearly a better football team without Weeden behind center. You measure how well you play in the NFL by wins, Weeden is win-less in 2013 and he has only one touchdown to show for the 2 games he started. Weeden has completely failed to take control of his situation and he deserves to sit on the bench.
The Browns were first and goal in Baltimore and nothing Brandon Weeden did was able to get the team into the end zone. Weeden has one of the worse records in the NFL when it comes to getting a touchdown while he is in the red-zone.
He also went on to say he is still involved in the Cleveland Offense. If that is the case why hasn’t he been looking at pictures and been in the huddles on the sidelines in the 2 games he missed?
Weeden said he’s talked to both Chudzinski and offensive coordinator Norv Turner, but declined to share what they told him. They are doing Weeden a disservice if they led him to believe he is an NFL caliber QB.
Weeden fails to give Hoyer any credit for the Browns improvement offensively.He attributed the offensive improvement to experience in the new scheme and Josh Gordon’s return from his two-game suspension, what Weeden fails to realize is that Hoyer is the guy standing behind the same offensive line that he did and Hoyer is able to move this team and score touchdowns.
Hoyer is also seeing his receivers dropping passes that should have been caught and even the great Josh Gordon dropped a couple in the Bengals game.
Brandon Weeden doesn’t have the intellect to understand NFL football, if he did than he would take a look at the numbers and know he has been completely out played by a better quarterback. He would also understand, it was a mistake naming him the Browns starting quarterback going into the NFL season.
Even the die-hard Weeden fans can see the Browns are a better team without Brandon Weeden playing quarterback. Success in the NFL is measured by wins, not some guy standing by his locker telling the media how good he thinks he played this season.
The sooner Weeden realizes that, the better off the team will be.
