PLAYERS: Colt McCoy
TEAMS: Cleveland Browns
Cleveland-browns
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 [...]

  • 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.

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.

3 Million And One Reasons The Cleveland Browns Need To Cut Seneca Wallace

Cleveland Browns backup quarterback Seneca Wallace continues to promote his Colt McCoy hate campaign publicly. Wallace took to the airways to once again say he won’t be Colt McCoy’s mentor. The Cleveland Fans should be happy about that fact. McCoy at least won some games last season that is more than we can say about Seneca Wallace. When the Browns picked Weeden in the draft...

Browns Fan Claims He Was Ejected for Standing in Dawg Pound

After the Cleveland Browns scored a touchdown in their preseason game this past Friday, a Browns fan named Jim Becker claims that he was reprimanded for standing in celebration and subsequently removed from the stadium, ultimately subjected to the league’s new conduct policy. Becker’s first-person account states that, with the Browns trailing the Philadelphia Eagles 24-3,...

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...

Browns Q.B. Brandon Weeden Must Be More Ready Than Eli Manning, Manning’s Playing Tonight

Browns coach Pat Shurmur has been reiterating for the past couple days, just how ready his 28-year-old rookie Q.B. Brandon Weeden is. I find it a bit unusual that Weeden himself has stated he needs more time to get comfortable with the speed of the game in the NFL. The other thing I find a bit unusual is the fact a guy like Eli Manning is playing for the New York Giants tonight in...

Browns Q.B. Colt McCoy Gets Start Against Bears Weeden Won’t Play

Browns quarterback Cot McCoy will start Thursday night when the Browns take on the Chicago Bears, Brandon Weeden will not play. Just recently Pat Shurmur said he has a lot of confidence in McCoy, you just have to wonder if the Cleveland Browns have wondered if they named Brandon Weeden the Browns starting quarterback prematurely. McCoy has had better than Weeden throughout the preseason...

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...

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...

Browns Joe Thomas & Pat Shurmur See strength Up front For Weeden’s Sake Lets Hope They Start Showing The Rest Of Us

Both Joe Thomas and head coach Pat Shurmur are insisting the Cleveland Browns offensive line is going to be good this season. They both see this as being the teams strength coming into the season. I wonder what they are seeing that the rest of us missed last Friday night? The Eagles were able to walk through the holes in the O-line to get to Brandon Weeden, forcing him to fumble...

CBS Cleveland’s Dustin Fox Says Browns Will Go 6-10, Won’t Address Bernie Kosar Daughter Doing Porn & More!

Dustin Fox is kinda a big deal in Ohio. He went from an all-Ohio high schooler, to playing a key roll on the national championship team at Ohio State, to a few years in the NFL and now a football talking head for five hours on 92.3 FM in Cleveland. Of course we wanted to talk to Fox about the Browns and maybe even sneak in a question about Bernie Kosar’s daughter doing porn. ...

Bengals Add Former Brown Jeff Faine

The Cleveland Browns’ former first round draft pick Jeff Faine will be coming back to Cleveland… when the Bengals come here. Faine was traded to the New Orleans Saints when the Browns signed LeCharles Bentley. While Bentley never played a down for the Browns, it is hard to argue with signing a player of that caliber. Still, it always seemed strange that the Browns would try and...

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...
