Dallas Cowboys’ quarterback Brandon Weeden is trying to disprove the “bust” label he’s earned since being drafted two seasons ago. As Cleveland’s quarterback, Weeden went 5-15 and threw more interceptions (26) than touchdowns (23).

Juice This: LeBron in the NFL

LeBron the Brown. Think about it. Envision it, Cleveland. Hometown boy, unstoppable. Un-guardable. Un-defensible (no, not indefensible, grammar nerds). Who could guard him? How? He could've saved Brandon Weeden's career, no doubt. Or could he have? We'll examine, courtesy of an extension of a certain commercial. Well, let's face it, he could be playing his last...

Dez Bryant says Brandon Weeden “was doing some great things out in Cleveland.”

Dez Bryant is a great receiver and it’s in his best interest to pump up anyone who has the potential of throwing him a football in the NFL, but this is ridiculous. Maybe he meant on the golf courses of Cleveland? Brandon Weeden joined the Cowboys this off-season and Dez Bryant spoke with the Dallas Morning News about the former Browns QB. “He’s been doing an outstanding job...

Who Should Be the Cowboys Second String Quarterback, Weeden or Orton?

This off-season the Dallas Cowboys went out and got the 30 year old out of Oklahoma State University, Brandon Weeden. They also have Kyle Orton on their roster, who had a had a heart breaking loss against the Eagles in Week 17. I think that Brandon Weeden will be the right way to go at the second string spot, because he is younger and could be in it for the long run, and well, the...

Each of those players was selected with the No. 22 pick. Quinn is out of the league and Weeden is a third-string player for the Dallas Cowboys. The Browns hope–and likely need–Manziel to be better. Expectations are...

The best thing about the new College Football Playoff

Analyzing and Addressing The Cowboys Quarterback Situation

Tom Pennington/Getty Images Let’s get this out of the way now. Jerry Jones is not spending his 1st round pick on a quarterback. As much as we all want it, Johnny Manziel is not going to be a Dallas Cowboy, at least not until his rookie contract is up in a few years. With the recent signing of Brandon Weeden, it is unlikely that Dallas spends any picks at all in this years quarterback...
