Through the first five games of the 2013 season, the Cleveland Browns defense has displayed one of the biggest turnarounds in the NFL under new defensive coordinator Ray Horton. With exotic looks and key additions in the front seven, the Browns have pressured quarterbacks and forced offenses to really get out of their comfort zone all season long—until Sunday against the Detroit Lions.
The Browns 31-17 loss will forever be remembered for the “Brandon Weeden Flip” as the team was driving with an opportunity to tie the football game with less than six minutes remaining in the fourth quarter. While that was certainly one of the more mind-boggling decisions this writer has ever seen in 28 years of football watching, putting the blame squarely on Weeden for this one is a complete injustice.
Matthew Stafford didn’t throw for 500 yards on Sunday, but his distribution of the ball with elite wide receiver Calvin Johnson essentially playing on one leg was entirely too easy. Stafford connected...

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...
The Browns surprised few today when Rob Chudzinski announced that they were sticking with Brandon Weeden as starter. Sure, Weeden might have thrown one of the worst passes in NFL history yesterday in a loss to the Detroit Lions, but who else were they going to use? Did you also forget that Jason Campbell’s brief appearance for the Browns in the second game of the year also included...
If the Cleveland Browns had any doubts about Brandon Weeden’s leadership abilities, he did his best to put them to rest against the Detroit Lions. The Cleveland Browns went into the locker room with a 17-7 lead over the Lions. For a moment in time people might have thought, Norv Turner and Chudzinski have gotten through to Weeden, they might have thought Weeden finally figured...
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...
The Browns were up 17-7 at halftime, but did not manage to score after that losing 31-17; this certainly didn’t help Brandon Weeden and the Browns’ cause.
Granted Lions linebacker, DeAndre Levy made a fantastic play on the ball, this was one of the more poorly executed plays of the 2013 season.
The post Brandon Weeden’s Terrible Interception (GIF) appeared first on The Farm Club.
Browns coach Rob Chudzinski will not bench quarterback Brandon Weeden following Sunday's loss to Detroit.
Weeden threw an interception in the fourth quarter of the 31-17 loss to the Lions, who outscored the Browns 24-0 in the second half.
But Chudzinski said Weeden played ''well in spurts'' and he has no intention of making a switch to backup Jason Campbell...
Browns QB Brandon Weeden hasn’t been playing high level football. He may have had the ugliest interception of the season when he tried to backhand a pass against Detroit that eventually resulted in a TD. That was one of two interceptions on the day for Weeden. Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that that doesn’t open the door for backup Jason Campbell.

Struggling quarterback Brandon Weeden threw an ugly interception that sealed the Browns' fate against Detroit last week.
It’s a confusing time to be a Browns fan. I guess it’s always a confusing time to be a Browns fan, but this is a conundrum almost unlike any other since 1999. The Cleveland Browns might not be traditional trailblazers, but they do find new and interesting ways to confuse their fans. The Cleveland Browns are in contention right now, but they’re really not. Their record says...
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.
The NFL has fined Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh yet again, this time $31,500 for a hit that he put on Cleveland Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden. Ironically, the Lions were not penalized in last Sunday’s victory over the fine-worthy play.
Being a disruptive character for the first few years of his career, he has brought a much deserved, yet almost unfair watch from...
Ndamukong Suh again finds himself in the NFL's crosshairs. The Lions defensive tackle who has already been fined $100000 this season for an illegal block on Vikings' center John Sullivan could be facing more sanctions after a questionable hit on Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden last Sunday.
The play wasn't flagged on the field but it didn't escape the watchful eye...
NFL Fines supposedly go to charity. These charities could fund themselves for years based on Lions DT Ndamukong Suh’s fines. Suh has been fined again, this time for a hit on Brandon Weeden:
Source close to Ndamukong Suh confirms that Suh has been fined $31,500 by the NFL for a hit on Browns QB Brandon Weeden

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. Rather than a tale of two cities, last Sunday’s Browns game could be described as a tale of two halves culminating in a disappointing loss to the Detroit Lions by a score of 31-17 in front of 70,000-plus at First Energy Stadium. Currently tied for second place in the AFC North, the Cleveland Browns (3-3) missed a chance to tie...
