Found September 11, 2012 on Waiting For Next Year:

Rick and Craig are back at it again and no we still don’t have an opener. Sorry, I was too busy bringing a new child into the world. Excuse me. Get off my back, ok?

Anyway, Rick and I talked about the Browns and Buckeyes mostly. As soon as I get TD or Jon on we’ll get some Tribe in the action. Scott will make an appearance soon too, I’m thinking.

  • Joe Haden’s suspension
  • Pat Shurmur and the 2-point conversion decision
  • Brandon Weeden’s tumultuous first week
  • Colt McCoy and Weeden sharing wide-eyed first moments in the new system
  • Buckeyes offensive regression from week 1 to week 2
It went a bit long this time nearing 30 minutes. That’s a bit too long for what we want to do, so we’ll try to tighten it up a bit going forward. The good news is that it at least means we’re having fun talking. Hopefully that translates into some good listening. Then again, Brandon Weeden claims he was having some fun last week against the Eagles, so we’ll just have to see what kind of podcaster rating we get. Hopefully at least as high as Mike Vick.

Weeden insists he's not overwhelmed

Despite throwing four interceptions in Cleveland's loss to Philadelphia, Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden claims he wasn't overwhelmed in his first NFL start.

Browns Weeden Post Game Press Conference “I Threw The Ball Where It Needed To Go All Day” Really?

When Brandon Weeden finished the game for the Cleveland Browns Sunday, he had his chance to hold a post game press conference, at the press conference Weeden said he threw the ball where it needed to be all day out there. Is he kidding us? Weeden went 12 for 35 had 4 interceptions and finished the day with a 5.1 rating. If he thinks he threw the ball where it needed to go all day...

Biggest Meltdowns Of NFL Week 1

  Week 1 is in the books, and with it came the unpredictable, crazy, and unexpected turnover of the NFL which leads to wild speculation. THE REDSKINS ARE GOOD! MARK SANCHEZ FOR MVP! THE 49ERS ARE A DYNASTY…AFTER WEEK1! And so on and so forth. More importantly, however, the NFL gave us our weekly dose of delicious meltdowns. There are some surpirses (no Romo?) and some unsurprises...

Weeden struggles with deep ball

Cleveland Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden was in over his head on Sunday, and the more the stats are analyzed the worse it looks. It was a long afternoon for Weeden. It was apparent during the game that Weeden was struggling with the deep and intermediate passes, overthrowing multiple open receivers. According to Pro Football Focus, Weeden was 0-7 with two interceptions on balls...

(Video) Browns QB Brandon Weeden Got Caught Under the American Flag

Cleveland Browns QB Brandon Weeden got caught under the American Flag. You'd think he'd be old enough to avoid the flag guys. Why not click the Google +1 & the retweet buttons? **Follow us on... Full story at Bob's Blitz ~

Browns confident Weeden will improve after clunker

Browns coach Pat Shurmur dismissed any concern about rookie quarterback Brandon Weeden, who struggled terribly in his NFL debut. Weeden threw four interceptions in Sunday's 17-16 loss to Philadelphia. The first-round pick completed 12 of 35 passes for 118 yards and finished with a 5.1 rating, one of the lowest by a QB in a season opener since the merger in 1970. Shurmur is...

Shurmur dismisses “clamoring for Colt,” insists Weeden will start

  Despite a 5.1 quarter back rating and a game where he turned the ball over six times, head coach Pat Shurmur told reports Brandon Weeden will start week two (Credit: AP Photo) After an abysmal start to the season, one in which he finished the game with a 5.1 quarterback rating, Cleveland Browns fans are already questioning whether or not quarterback Brandon Weeden should be the...

Joe Haden Suspended 4 Games for Violating NFL Drug Policy

As reported by The Cleveland Plain Dealer, cornerback Joe Haden of the Cleveland Browns was suspended today after losing his appeal by the NFl for the next 4 weeks for violating the NFLs’ drug policy. The NFL does not reveal what drug the player tested positive for, but as first reported by August 8th rumor had it that Haden was snagged for Adderall. Common...

Browns' Haden suspended 4 games for substance abuse violation

Cleveland Browns starting cornerback Joe Haden has been suspended for four games for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy, the team and league announced Monday. Haden tested positive in the offseason for the stimulant Adderall, according to The NFL issued a statement, which read: "Joe Haden of the Cleveland Browns has been suspended without pay...

Who’s More FAIL: Brandon Weeden’s Patriotic Debut Or The Bears Tailgate Stripper?

As I perused the sports news this morning, I noticed a few things. For starters, a bunch of running backs had awesome games, which sucks for a guy like me who wants to sell high on Kevin Smith and Alfred Morris. Second, Jon Hamm is still my favorite St. Louis Cardinals fan and he’s packing heat. Third, Rihanna apparently performed at the closing ceremony of the 2012 Paralympics...

Cleveland, You Make Me Laugh

I knew it would come. I just didn’t expect it to happen this fast. Four months ago I was upbraided by a throng of BoneHeads (Cleveland’s version of a cheese head) for questioning the Browns’ receivers and the wisdom of dumping yet another QB. I was colorfully informed that the sum total of all of Cleveland’s problems in 2011 rested solely with Colt McCoy. Replacing him would...

Quinton Spears Tweet Insinuates ‘Politics’ At Play On Browns Roster

Former Browns linebacker Quinton Spears sent a not-so-sublte tweet jab at the organization on Sunday: It doesn’t take a great leap of faith to imply that he’s talking about Pat Shumur’s decision to start Brandon Weeden over Colt McCoy. Weeden had a disastrous debut on Sunday, throwing four interceptions and failing to move the offense much at all. When asked to clarify, Spears...

#32 Cleveland Browns Week 2 NFL Power Rankings

Yikes. 12 of 35 for 118 yards and 4 interceptions. That is one of the worst quarterback performances I’ve ever seen. It’s pretty clear, Weeden, despite his age, is not a nearly finished product. It wasn’t all his fault; his supporting cast sucks. He’ll also probably improve as the season goes on, but this offense is incredibly young and will have many growing pains, to say...

Growing Pains apparent for the Browns

Growing Pains...and I'm sure as hell not referring to the 1980's sitcom with that pop star's father and the homophobe teen heartthrob. Growing pains are going to be abundant with your 2012 Cleveland Browns--if it wasn't clear earlier, it smacked us all in the face on Sunday.  Not many Browns fans would have thought the team would be within a point of the Eagles in...
