Weeden not losing sleep over “boneheaded” interception

Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden ended his team’s hopes of a fourth-quarter comeback with an ugly interception that Weeden himself described as “boneheaded.” But Weeden says he’s ready to move on.

Weeden told the Cleveland Plain Dealer that far from dwelling on the interception against the Lions, in which he backhanded the ball into the arms of Detroit’s DeAndre Levy, he is moving on and focusing on Sunday’s game against the Packers.

“It’s behind me. I didn’t lose any sleep over it. It stung at the time,” Weeden said.

For Browns fans, the news that Weeden didn’t lose any sleep over his interception won’t necessarily be welcome. Some fans would like to hear that Weeden is flogging himself for that throw. But as long as Weeden remains the Browns’ starter, the team is better off if he can keep looking ahead, and put that interception as far behind him as possible.

    He didn’t lose any sleep during the play either.

    DBs on the Browns remaining schedule are the ones losing sleep, but in the way that little kids can’t sleep when Christmas is close.

  3. wrongsizeglass says: Oct 16, 2013 8:55 PM

    He should be worried about losing his job.

  4. raiderapologist says: Oct 16, 2013 8:56 PM

    Weeden isn’t losing any sleep because Hoyer is done and he’s seen Campbell in practice.

  5. coltzfan166 says: Oct 16, 2013 8:59 PM

    Browns fans probably feel differently.

    I think next time I do something stupid at work, I will tell my boss I’m not losing any sleep over it.

  7. thethunderofgunns says: Oct 16, 2013 9:01 PM

    Cleveland won’t lose any sleep either when they rid the bum.

  8. johnnyjagfan says: Oct 16, 2013 9:01 PM

    Lose sleep? He loses games. C’mon, Cleveland!

  9. donmcg2012 says: Oct 16, 2013 9:04 PM

    Love your arrogant no caring attitude Weeden. Try keeping that attitude when you’re out of a job next year.

  10. supermadelf says: Oct 16, 2013 9:04 PM

    So, he’s just gonna treat that memory like 98% of the playbook? Didn’t lose much sleep bothering to remember that either.

  11. earpaniac says: Oct 16, 2013 9:29 PM

    A guy his age can’t afford to miss any sleep.

  12. dkeyser says: Oct 16, 2013 9:39 PM

    He’s not losing sleep because of the INT. He’s losing sleep because hes getting up there in years and has to get up every 3 hours at night to pee.

  13. clownsfan says: Oct 16, 2013 9:39 PM

    In my 30+ years of being a Browns fan I cannot recall disliking any player as much as I dislike Brandon Weeden. I absolutely cannot wait until he’s off the roster.

  14. thetruthcampaign says: Oct 16, 2013 9:39 PM

    I was loving it.

  15. jerrysglassescleaner says: Oct 16, 2013 9:50 PM

    Weeden isn’t losing anymore sleep because Hoyer is out for the season and there is no real threat for the starting QB gig. Campbell sucks! Just wait till next year son when The Browns take Johnny Manziel.

  16. coltzfan166 says: Oct 16, 2013 10:02 PM

    Browns fans lost sleep over it.

  17. vikingapologist says: Oct 16, 2013 10:17 PM

    He is actually not a bad QB , this league has changed so much, a lot of these guys need some time to sit behind a starter & learn. For every Andrew luck there is 20 Alex smiths and rich Gannon’s. But there is no patience any longer! Unfortunate really

  18. vegasgreek says: Oct 16, 2013 10:25 PM

    GO PACK GO !

  19. mlenenski says: Oct 16, 2013 10:31 PM

    And Tebow isn’t interested in being his backup.

    But If Tebow just had a little devil in him, he’d probably be back in the league by now. He should go hang out with Farve for a couple weeks.

    That would probably do the trick.

  20. mitchydizzle says: Oct 16, 2013 10:37 PM

    He must get better, but try to remember he hasn’t even played 16 games yet in his NFL career, inexperienced QBs are gonna make mistakes.

    He can throw the ball well at times, so there is something there to work with in my opinion – Weeden has more hope than Gabbert at the very least.

    As a Raiders fan – don’t ask for Campbell or you just might get it…

  21. ravensfan8780 says: Oct 16, 2013 10:42 PM

    It was a still better pass than anything Brady Quinn throw in Cleveland

  22. gochargersgo says: Oct 16, 2013 10:46 PM

    Browns fans arent worried about losing sleep either. Soon as the game comes on its nap time.

  23. titusyoungslegalcounsel says: Oct 16, 2013 10:51 PM

    Browns are toast. Good

  24. stevincinci says: Oct 16, 2013 11:03 PM

    4th place, if they’re lucky, in the AFC North. (I know you beat the Bengals a couple weeks ago. Sorry to get your playoff hopes in an uproar. You knew better.)

  25. dumbpollack says: Oct 16, 2013 11:08 PM

    Weeden is in WAY over his head, (thanks “Big Show”). The only reason he is playing is because we don’t have anyone else. Blessing in disguise though, let’s lose a bunch this year and find a QB.

  26. footballchic777 says: Oct 16, 2013 11:29 PM

    That’s because he is yet to understand he isn’t as good as he thinks he is. I have never once seen him interviewed where he felt anything less than confident and good about his play. He can throw 5 picks and say he felt he played well, and didn’t feel he made any mistakes. Oh well, he won’t be there next year so Browns fans only have to suffer with him for 10 more games.

  27. staffordsyear says: Oct 17, 2013 12:03 AM

    I was rooting for the “old” guy when he got drafted..he better start proving his worth otherwise its Not For Long.

  28. staffordsyear says: Oct 17, 2013 12:04 AM

    But yea I’m happy he tossed that ball,hehe.

  29. peopletrains says: Oct 17, 2013 12:18 AM

    It’s easy to have a short memory when you don’t have a brain to begin with.

  30. lks311 says: Oct 17, 2013 1:11 AM

    I’m going to blame this all on Ndamukong Suh.

  31. warnertobruceallday says: Oct 17, 2013 1:26 AM

    What a joke the Browns Franchise is I wish i could say i remember what it feels like but i cant when the Rams have been the epidemy of greatness in the NFL since they joined the league. Sam Bradford is the best qb in the nfl. Zac Stacy is clearly showing he will be a top 5 running back. Our defense is arguably the best the league has seen in years and everything is run by the legend himself, Jeff Fisher


  32. doctorrustbelt says: Oct 17, 2013 1:30 AM

    #1 wr Josh Gordon = 9th in NFL in dropped passes

    #2 wr Davone Bess = 13th in NFL in dropped passes

    The Cleveland Browns have the 30th ranked offensive line in the NFL

    – The Browns O-Line have allowed the most qb hits in the NFL (32nd ranked – tie w/ Buffalo)

    – The Browns O-Line has given up the 2nd most sacks in the NFL (31st ranked – tie w/ Miami)

    – The Browns O-Line have only have 1 rushing td (32nd ranked in NFL)

  33. bengalskuta82 says: Oct 17, 2013 1:40 AM

    I just watched that highlight. What was he thinking? I can see rookie doing that but not from a 30 or 31 yr old NFL QB.

  34. hjworton46 says: Oct 17, 2013 3:07 AM

    Drafting a 29 year old rookie was aways a huge risk. The QB situation will continue to be unresolved in Cleveland.

  35. kwgator says: Oct 17, 2013 4:20 AM

    Sign Tebow already!

  36. 4512dawg4512 says: Oct 17, 2013 7:06 AM

    What would Browns fans do if they didn’t have Weeden to blame every loss on? Last weeks loss is on Ray Horton, allowing 24 points in the second half to the Lions, thats just ridiculous

  37. clownsfan says: Oct 17, 2013 8:10 AM

    In my 30+ years of being a Browns fan I cannot recall disliking any player as much as I dislike Brandon Weeden.

  38. ccjcsr says: Oct 17, 2013 8:16 AM

    Chris Wienke 2.0 isn’t worried he has some sort of guaranteed money coming his way regardless

  39. thetooloftools says: Oct 17, 2013 9:39 AM

    The problem with Weeden is he doesn’t seem to get upset about anything. He acts like he doesn’t care. He doesn’t own anything.

  40. puckthefatriots says: Oct 17, 2013 10:18 AM

    I remember a lot of angry Browns fans in April 2012 whenever anything bad was said about Weeden. Anybody still mad?

  41. ytownjoe says: Oct 17, 2013 10:53 AM

    Enough already. Just let the man go home.

  42. doctorrustbelt says: Oct 17, 2013 4:02 PM

    I remember when Cleveland fans were crying about Tim Couch while giving the offensive line and the terrible receivers a pass.

  43. ajlynema says: Oct 18, 2013 10:20 AM

    This just in, the NFL has fined Suh for looking at Weeden wrong during that play. They say that it should’ve been flagged and that would be a 30 yard penalty based on history and Suh should always be flagged anyways. They decided instead of replaying the game from that point, they will instead just figure that the Browns would’ve completed the comeback and won the game. They also decided to fine Suh an additional $50,000 for the mean look and an additional $75,000 just because they think he should be fined.
