Found October 14, 2013 on NFL Injury Report:
Cleveland Browns quarterback, Brandon Weeden, did not play particularly well in the Browns’ Sunday afternoon loss to the Detroit Lions.  In fact, after witnessing one of the ugliest interceptions tossed by any QB in the past half decade, Browns head coach, Rob Chudzinski, is still sticking with his much-maligned QB, reports Josh Alper of NBCSports. The horrendous interception in question occurred during a critical possession for the Browns in the fourth quarter.  The Browns were down by seven at this point and Weeden under duress inexplicably tried a backhanded flip near running back Chris Ogbonnaya. Lions’ linebacker, DeAndre Levy, intercepted the wobbly pigskin.  The Lions subsequently drove in for the score in a 31-17 victory. It was a poor decision and it looked almost sad to see Weeden vomit all over himself.  However, coach Chud is sticking with Weeden, saying Monday, Weeden “played well in spurts.” Jason Campbell is next in line to come in if Weeden continues to lay onions.  The Browns must not be sold on Campbell as they chose Brian Hoyer over Campbell a few weeks ago when Weeden went down with an injured finger. However, the unpredictability of the NFL has landed Weeden back under center as Hoyer is now done for the season with a knee injury.  The bottom line is that Weeden needs to play better and needs to stop making bad decisions and embarrassing plays if the Browns want to compete. Coach Chud has Weeden’s back, for now.  Considering the alternative, he has no choice.     You can follow me on twitter @TheSoftParade69 Talk football talk cigars talk anything, I know a little about a lot.

Video: Cleveland Browns fan burns Brandon Weeden jersey

Nobody in Browns town likes it when the Browns lose, but one fan apparently hated it so much that he filmed the burning of his Brandon Weeden jersey. As I stated on Twitter last week, I haven’t bought a Browns jersey since my Kellen Winslow one was rendered useless. I bet this Browns fan wishes he could say the same. Or maybe pyromania is more exciting than not wasting money on...

Brandon Weeden’s Terrible Interception (GIF)

No QB change coming for the Browns

Browns QB Brandon Weeden hasn’t been playing high level football.

Browns OL Joe Thomas: ‘Brandon Weeden can Lead Us to Playoffs’

  It appeared that the Browns had given up on the 2013 season after an 0-2 start and trading RB Trent Richardson to the Colts.  Then Brian Hoyer came along and led the Browns to consecutive wins before he was injured in a Thursday night game vs. the Bills.  Brandon Weeden, who was the starter, came in the game and led the Browns to victory and first place in the AFC North.
