Cleveland Browns head coach Pat Shurmur has announced that rookie Brandon Weeden will sit on Thursday, giving the nod for the final preseason game to Colt McCoy.

The Browns announced weeks ago that Weeden was the starter, and typically starting quarterbacks sit out the final preseason game. But Weeden isn’t your typical starter. He’s struggled the past two preseason games and many fans were hoping to see Weeden get a few more reps under his belt before the season opener.

Did the Browns give up on Colt McCoy too soon?

Cleveland Browns head coach Pat Shurmur made a bold decision early in the preseason when he named rookie quarterback Brandon Weeden the starter before taking a single snap in an NFL game.  After three preseason starts, Weeden has looked like a rookie; inexperienced and unable to move the offense consistently while last year’s starter, Colt [...]

Shurmur: Brandon Weeden is “Very Ready”

I think [Brandon Weeden] is very prepared. I think he’s had an outstanding camp. I thought he had an outstanding offseason. Really he’s kind of improved every day. For a guy that’s going through this for the first time as a pro, I think he’s very ready. – Cleveland Browns head coach Pat Shurmur, Tuesday, after announcing that Weeden would not be suiting up for the team’s...

Weeden sitting is the safe play, I guess

Pat Shurmur announced today that Brandon Weeden was going to sit out the fourth pre-season game this week. It has created debate all over sports talk radio and twitter as people try to figure out what their stance is on the topic. On the one hand, Brandon Weeden and the starting offense might want to have something in their memories that’s a bit more positive than what they did...

Cancel the Season: Brandon Weeden to sit out Browns’ last practice game

On one hand, no one will ever go broke questioning the legitimacy and competence of the Holmgren/Shurmur regime. It’s easy enough to see pretty much any decision they make as resulting primarily from some combination of arrogance and fear, including the one to sit Brandon Weeden in tonight’s final preseason tuneup. Of course they don’t want anyone to get hurt tonight, but worse...

Browns News: Trent Richardson Still Not At Practice; Weeden to Sit Out Game

The twitter brigade in Berea kept us informed today that rookie RB Trent Richardson was not on the practice field again, and that QB Brandon Weeden isn’t expected to play at all on Thursday. Still no Trent Richardson for #Browns. Expected him on field by this point this week. I’m sure we’ll get the usual “he’s making progress.” — Tom Withers (@twithersAP) August 28...

What We’re Watching: Bears at Browns

No Brandon Weeden and potentially no fans inside of the stadium despite being forced to pay regular season prices, but that won’t stop us from analyzing the game from the comfort of our own homes. The home stretch before the start of the regular season, the Browns will be forced to use tonight’s contest to widdle their roster from 75 to 53 by the close of business tomorrow. You...

Why Brandon Weeden will be the best rookie quarterback in 2012

I have evaluated all the quarterback situations around the league and I have made my final conclusion.  That is that, Brandon Weeden will perform better than any rookie quarterback in the NFL Draft.  I know everyone is wondering about Robert Griffin III or Andrew Luck, but I think Weeden can be the best. Weeden is far more mature then all of these quarterbacks, he understands the...

Cleveland Brown’s Pat Shurmur: A tale of two coaches

Pat Shurmur walked into quite the situation when being hand-picked by team president Mike Holmgren to coach the Cleveland Browns prior to the 2011 season. Since their return to the NFL in 1999, the Browns have been through six head coaches in that 13 year time period with very little success. Every single move Shurmur made would be critiqued to an almost unnecessary degree by media...

WFNY Podcast – 2012-08-30 – The Return

The WFNY Podcast makes a triumphant return. The opening is absolutely ridiculous now, as you’ll hear. The highlight clips have LeBron and Braylon Edwards! This is the last time you’ll hear it, but we thought it would be funny to play it one last time. As for the rest, we’re Browns heavy. Topics include: Rick hates Colt McCoy talk 4th pre-season game pointlessness Discontinuing...

What to Expect from the Browns Offense

After 3 preseason games the Cleveland Browns sit at 2-1, and what does that mean? Absolutely nothing! Preseason games are where teams practice situational scenarios that they’ve worked on in practice. This allows them to implement exactly what they practiced for weeks in actual game action. So what should you expect from a preseason game? You want to see your team have continued...

Major League Baseball is the Absolute Worst

Look who was at Cedar Point last week. The back of the shirt says, “ALL 27 OF THEM” accompanied by a picture of 27 World Series Rings and yes I’m taking your picture because parading around Cedar Point in this shirt is like showing up in foreclosure court just to watch, wearing a shirt with pictures of your 27 mansions on it with LET MY HOUSES DO THE TALKING written on the...
