  • YES !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He is the better qb
  • yes you gave up to soon on mcCoy to soon, if he had the line protection, he could have done a lot better, but the lin didn't give any time to throw the ball @ he was sacked to ma ny times, give the line the blame nt McCoy, if he had the line that weeden has he would be a lot better then Wedden is, Weedenneeds to go.
  • I say that everytime the Browns play.
  • Brandon Wheeden is NOT going to develop. I wish I were wrong, but he has shown bad tendencies all year, and he goes down at the sight of a DL closing in on him.
  • Weeden has been awarded a better line and a running back and better receivers. If McCoy had the same benefits, we'd be much further ahead. Why do they give up so soon on their young quarterbacks when they have no weapons around them. We are doomed to mediocrity.
  • yes get McCoy another chance he is alot better then Wedden, Weeden will naver make it in the NFL, I don't know what is wrong with the couch that he won't give McCoy a chance.
