Found September 23, 2013 on The Sports Rocker:
After last week's trade of Trent Richardson to the Colts, many football pundits and fans thought for sure the Browns were all in for a top pick in the 2013 NFL draft. Then they went out and did the must un-Browns thing they could have ever done. They won. They freaking won.And now the Browns coaching staff sounds like their backpedaling on success. Allow me to channel my inner Lewis Black.... "For crying out loud, make up your *&$$# mind!"According to a Yahoo! Sports report, first-year head coach Rob Chudzinski isn't sure if Brian Hoyer will start again or if second-year quarterback Brandon Weeden will get the nod. Although Hoyer threw three picks in the win (win!), Weeden could possibly be the starter when he returns from a sprained thumb injury.Sorry, Browns fans. That was a good feeling wasn't it? A come from behind victory.... first win of the year... following a surprising trade of a player you thought would be around for a few years.... backup quarterback saves the day.But it totally went against the mission. And that mission is to get a top three pick in the 2013 draft. And having a signal caller in the game that might give you better than a sliver of hope just isn't going to cut it. Hence the possibility that Weeden could actually start another game this season. Coach Chudzinski and ownership need some talent, and winning four or five games isn't doing anyone any favors.Congratulations to Brian Hoyer and Josh Gordon. You guys did a great job. Just don't do it again.
