Brandon Weeden just isn’t cutting it in Cleveland in the minds of some fans. The Browns seemed to have some semblance of a shot this season, but one fan has grown impatient with the team’s quarterback, so that fan has taken to the best place to find whatever random thing you are looking for — Craigslist — in search of a new signal caller. Weeden has a 71.4 passer rating and has thrown for 1,005 yards and four touchdowns this season, and is coming off of an exceptionally dismal weekend against the Detroit Lions. According to that Browns fan, someone who has maybe seen a football once or twice in their life could do a better job than Weeden has. “Have you played pro football? College ball? Highschool? Pee-wee?  Have you played Madden before?” The ad begins. “Do you sort of kind of know some of the rules of football? If yes keep reading. If no…well also keep reading! We will take ANYONE. This could turn into a regular gig for the right person.” The Browns are 3-3 this season, and led 17-7on Sunday at halftime against the Lions. That was until Weeden collapsed in the second, throwing an inexplicable underhand shovel pass that was intercepted by Detroit linebacker DeAndre Levy. The rest of the Craisglist ad, posted on Monday, reads: “The Cleveland Browns as you may have noticed are having problems scoring points on offense consistently. We are deciding that we actually want to win this year and that we have a real shot at it too. 3 wins in 6 games!? We were expecting maybe 1/3 of those wins for the whole year, but SOMEHOW we have a shot still. Here’s the thing…our defense is sick nasty, but we’ve got problems under center…well one problem. Brandon Weeden. If you’re sick of seeing desperation heaves to the sidelines, countless sacks after superb coverage, and underhanded lightly tossed interceptions in the 4th quarter then please come apply! If you can throw a ball, come apply! If you can’t, come anyway! We can teach you the basics … Throwing the ball to the guy who has the same color shirt as you. Throwing the ball reasonably close to a receiver that’s WIDE OPEN, throwing the ball more than three yards on third and 16. Think you got what it takes? Come on down! You’re the next contestant on Cleveland Quarterbacks! Please no redheads, people named Brett, or any U. Of Florida alum.” Sounds like a an alright gig for the right person.
