Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson‘s 11-game suspension comes to an end on Monday and that meant Sunday’s game against the Buccaneers was the last one that Jacoby Brissett is sure to start this season.

Brissett went out with a bang. He hit wide receiver Amari Cooper for a 45-yard gain that set up running back Nick Chubb‘s game-winning touchdown run in overtime.

After the game, Brissett said that he was “grateful for this opportunity” to be the starting quarterback and that he’ll continue to come to work with the same attitude he brought to the starting job.

“I still have a job to do. I’m still on the team. I’ve still got to be the same person everyday, no matter what. I’m excited for him to come back and looking forward to next week,” Brissett said, via 92.3 The Fan.

The Browns went 4-7 with Brissett as their starter and the quarterback was 234-of-368 for 2,608 yards, 12 touchdowns, and six interceptions in those outings.

  1. Brissett = Class act.

    He deserves better than what the Browns are about to do to him. I’d stick with him over that predator!

  2. Browns haven’t lost games due to quarterback play. The offense has mostly been adequate enough. The defense is where we have struggled. Jacoby has proven capable and should keep the starting job. But I guess the 230 million dollar man isn’t going to be sitting on the bench. What’s the point? So we can finish the season with 6 wins? Smh.

  3. Thanks for the hard work Jacoby, but we are bringing in the predator to replace you. It’s what the fans are calling for, I’m sure you understand.

  4. Always loved this kid! He’s a true pro and really a pretty good QB. Hopefully, he can sign with a new team next year that respects what he brings ti the game.

  5. He’s been solid, played the best ball of his career with the Browns. If only the Browns had a better defense.

  6. they kept showing the stat how long it was between Browns TDs the last couple games .. almost 3 qtrs 40 some min .. JB did a nice job .but he still a back up ..

  7. He’s the one who deserves the opportunity, not some despicable sexual predator who isn’t even repentant.

    The Browns and NFL are going to break something the minute Watson steps on the field, and it’s something they will never be able to mend.

    I don’t think they realize the magnitude of this.

  8. Grateful to him and thanks for the job he did. But I have a fantasy league to win and everyone thought I was crazy for drafting Watson as my 2nd QB. They will now see and play the price. No judgement zone on my team. Just win Baby!

    Good post. Goodell is complicit, which is a whole other problem. He sanctioned the trade itself and then came in with a super light punishment on the back end.

    Any other league and Watson is banned for life.

  10. Solid. Sure. A starter, no. Thanks for what you did. But let’s bring in Watson and start a new era. Go Browns.

  11. Jacoby, just don’t accept any massage advice from Watson.
    I know things can get chummy in the QB room, but keep your distance from Watson.

  12. Brissett showed he is better than any QB the Colts have had since him. Not that it’s a high bar.

    On top of that, he looked much better than the disgraced Watson did in preseason.

    I don’t think it’s at all guaranteed the Browns get better the rest of the year.

  13. Brisket is classy. “Browns is Browns” should commence once females start picketing against Watson, and people swirl brown wash-cloths w/ his number on them.

  14. Nice job by Brissett. From all accounts he’s a likeable guy. Another one of the many QBs drafted by the Patriots who have started an NFL game this year, joining Brady, Garoppolo, Mac Jones, Bailey Zappe, and Brian Hoyer. That’s six QBs. Now if they could only draft WRs.

  15. Jacoby Brissett is a class act. It’s a pleasure to see a good man like him play well. It’s too bad for Brissett that he’s never had the chance to be on an overall good team. Compare Ryan Fitzpatrick and Jacoby Brissett to Ryan Tanehill. Nothing against Tanehill, but there’s a lot of luck involved in Tanehill getting situated on stable teams with more talent and better coaches. If Brissett and Fitzpatrick had been on teams with good offensive players around them, good defenses, and good coaches, they both would have probably made several playoff appearances in their careers. They aren’t anywhere near Drew Brees or Tom Brady at their best, but Brissett and Fitzpatrick would get a lot more respect and recognition for their ability, hard work, class, and respect from teammates if they’d been on better teams throughout their careers.

  16. Browns fans are disgusting. I can’t wait for the Steelers to dominate them and their sexual predator quarterback!!!

  17. If the Browns had even mediocre D and ST, they would be solidly in the playoff hunt. Brissett has had a nice year.
    Hopefully, the Browns can keep him as back-up, or he goes somewhere he has a chance to start.

    I can’t be the only person who sees the thick irony here.

  19. It’s not the fan’s fault the owner has no moral compass, but I do wonder how there’s a single female fan in the stands…

  20. Gee Spockncc1701 – thanks for listing the 6 QBs who were somehow associated w/ that Pats at one point in the last 20 yrs. I guess it makes you feel better since they’re gonna end up in the AFC East basement for yrs to come?

  21. Jacoby isn’t the reason Cleveland is 4-7. He did more than his part to be at least 6-5, if not better right now. The defense has just been bad, the special teams have been worse, and Stefanski for some reason forgets he has Nick Chubb for long stretches every week

  22. Brissett is a high quality human being and definitely a guy you want as your backup but unless you are surrounding him with pro bowlers and future hall of famers like he has in Cleveland, don’t expect the same result on another team.

    You would think people would have learned by now with how well Baker is doing without the Browns offense that it’s that team carrying the QB’s, not the other way around. If average to mediocre QB’s like Baker were putting up top 10-15 numbers behind that team even a rusty Watson should be top 5.
