Found September 19, 2013 on
The Browns shook up the NFL (and lost, what, 75 percent of its remaining fan base?) when it shipped second-year running back Trent Richardson to Indianapolis for a first rounder in 2014 on Wednesday. But what time will likely forget is the way the day began in Cleveland.
Sure, you can find analysis on the fantasy impact of Richardson playing behind Andrew Luck . But got anybody telling you how many points you can score with Brian Hoyer in your lineup this week? Yeah, us neither.
The Browns announced early Wednesday that second-year QB Brandon Weeden will miss Sunday's game at Minnesota with a sprained thumb, and that Hoyer will start in his place. Hoyer is actually the team's third-string QB, but the team is vaulting him over backup Jason Campbell.
This would bring the number of Browns starting QBs to a whopping 19 since the franchise re-entered the NFL in 1999. Tim Couch was the first; Kelly Holcomb is the only one to start a playoff game for the new, unimproved Browns.
But nothing captures both the volume of different QBs and the frustration of a fan base like this photo Instagrammed by a Cleveland ad agency.

Some of the fans of the Cleveland Browns are actually laughing about the team’s chances of coming home with a win from Minnesota. These same fans are probably suffering short-term memory loss. They think because the Cleveland Browns traded Trent Richardson and are starting Brian Hoyer, the team doesn’t stand a chance. They completely forgot how dominant the Browns defense played...
I am sorry, ever since Trent Richardson was traded a day ago, people have already labeled the Browns as a lock to get the first overall pick. Well I disagree, I think the Browns can still win. Listen, the day before the Browns traded T-Rich, they named Brian Hoyer the starting quarterback for week 3 […]
Brian Hoyer was the first domino to fall.
This morning around 10 AM, the Cleveland Browns announced that Brian Hoyer, their third-string quarterback who was inactive for the team’s game last weekend, would start in Minnesota on Sunday in place of Brandon Weeden.
Weeden, of course, injured his thumb towards the tail end of the Browns week two loss in Baltimore. In just under two...
After suffering a thumb injury in Sunday’s loss to the Baltimore Ravens, many expected starting quarterback Brandon Weeden to miss a week or two. What they did not expect is that head coach Rob Chudzinski would name third-string quarterback Brian Hoyer the starter over free agent acquisition Jason Campbell for Sunday’s road contest against the Minnesota Vikings.
The Cleveland Browns have sucked for a long time. This much we know. Since they came to the league, they’re often mentioned with the Lions, Jets, and Jaguars as being the punching bag of the league. It’s easy to crack…Read more →
Browns third-string quarterback Brian Hoyer will start Sunday against Minnesota in place of Brandon Weeden, who sprained his right thumb last week. Cleveland surprisingly decided to go with Hoyer over more experienced backup Jason Campbell.

It has happened again. Through all the offseason optimism, the Cleveland Browns sit at 0-2 in the NFL standings, with no help in sight. The struggles of the Browns have come partially due to injuries, but overall, they have failed to get it done in the second half. Not being able to finish games has been a consistent theme for this franchise over the past few years, perhaps the only...
Congratulations to you brave Cleveland Browns fans because you have a new starting quarterback! Let’s welcome third-string QB Brian Hoyer as the next tackling dummy. Former starter Brandon Weeden sprained his right thumb during Sunday’s loss to Baltimore, opening up the vacancy for Hoyer. The 27-year-old made one start for the Cardinals last season after spending the three previous...

Brian Hoyer, starting NFL Cleveland Browns quarterback. Trent Richardson, Indianapolis Colts running back. Say what you like about tanking a season to try and draft a franchise QB. At least it’s an ethos. This team wasn’t going anywhere with Brandon Weeden, anyway.
And even apart from Mike Lombardi’s impeccable track record, no one has a clearer direction than Joe Banner, nor...
Several Browns players expressed shock at the team's decision to trade star running back Trent Richardson.
Cleveland dealt Richardson to Indianapolis on Wednesday for a first-round draft pick next year, a move that came on the same day third-string quarterback Brian Hoyer was named this week's starter and wide receiver Greg Little lost his starting job. Linebacker D'...
The Browns’ decision to start backup quarterback Brian Hoyer over injured starter Brandon Weeden makes perfect sense to anyone that’s observed the Browns over the past couple of seasons. So far in 2013, Weeden has been pretty poor, throwing for three interceptions and only one touchdown.
In a young man’s sport, it’s strange that the Browns’ second year quarterback is...
