Weeden is practicing, but he apparently won’t be playing


Last week, as Brian Hoyer prepared for his second start as the quarterback of the Cleveland Browns, former starter Brandon Weeden didn’t practice.

This week, as Hoyer prepares for his third start, Weeden has returned to practice, fully participating on both Monday and Tuesday.

Weeden believes his time on the field with the Browns isn’t over, and plenty can happen over the next 12 games.  For now, though, Weeden is the first quarterback of the 2013 season who apparently has lost his job after getting injured.

Injuries suck,” Weeden recently said.

Though that sentiment can be express with words far more flowery, the point is the same.  Every player is a potential Wally Pipp.  If the next man up mans up and plays even better than the guy who is injured, the next man up likely will stay there.

    Brady won his job because of injury. Alex Smith lost his job to injury.

    Yes Weeden injuries suck and you lost your job to Hoyer.

    “Brandone” needs to realize what everybody else already knows. He’s finished in Cleveland.

    Keep the garbage on the sidelines

    The Browns probably would have won both games with a healthy Weeden, as Hoyer was good, not spectacular. If Hoyer stumbles, Weeden will get his spot back.

    Weeden is done with the Browns and I absolutely hate to say Lombardi was right. And that is from a lifelong Browns fan.

    Sucks for Weeden. It’s hard NOT to root for this undrafted lifelong-Browns fan Hoyer kid.

    THIS week, anyway. Give him a couple weeks & the dawg pound may very well be screaming for Weeden.

    The backup QB is still the most popular guy in town… (except Denver, Green Bay, New England, Seattle, etc.)

    Weeds was a goner the day Banner n Lombodamy took over

    I predict Weeden will be starting again by Week 9.

    Wouldn’t Sanchez be the first QB to lose his job after being injured?

  14. edelmanfanclub says: Oct 2, 2013 1:20 AM

    Why would he play? He was a stupid pick by the old regime, and I’m almost positive Hoyer is younger than him. It doesn’t help Hoyer has led them to two wins after everyone declared this a lost season. I’m also going to say a career 71.1 Passer Rating and 57% comp percentage won’t earn you a job even if you lost it to injury

    The season is still young. Put him back in, to remind us why we have had fun the last two weeks!

    Another draft pick that manatee framed Holmgren efffed up for the Browns.

    How’s 2-2 for the Brown’s minus the first round pics of TRich and Weeden look now, you fat slob!

    BW, not hot, not not, just meh.

  18. greatestgamensports says: Oct 2, 2013 3:54 AM

    Weeden is done, Hoyer is clearly the better QB!

    Can’t argue about what Brian has brought to the table when it comes to talent and results now Brandon. The tapes don’t lie, he sees the field much better and makes quicker decisions.

    Leave it to the Browns to replace their starter with a third stringer and expect excellence. 5-11 here we come….. again

  21. snakeskinsoul says: Oct 2, 2013 8:34 AM

    If we keep winning Hoyer won’t be taking up the clipboard anytime soon…sorry Weeds you were given a “birth” certificate not a “fair” certificate.

  22. reignjc says: Oct 2, 2013 1:32 PM

    Hoyer is garbage, he won a couple games and he is the saviour! LOL.. good ol’ Cleveland.
