Cleveland Browns fans probably did not feel confident heading into Sunday’s game with Brandon Weeden as their starting quarterback, though they were facing the Jacksonville Jaguars. Despite the lowly opponent, Weeden and company found a way to lose the game.
To the Jags’ credit, they have now won three out of four games and have clearly improved since the start of the season. However, they benefitted from three turnovers from Weeden, who was intercepted twice and lost a fumble. After Weeden threw his second pick, it appeared even the Browns’ official Twitter account had seen enough.

Ouch. Typically a team’s Twitter account focuses on calling positive attention to the team. It’s one thing to say that Weeden threw an interception, but the “and again” was clearly thrown in there to make him look bad.
Weeden has now thrown nine touchdowns and nine interceptions in the eight games in which he has played a significant amount of snaps. The Browns are 1-6 in those games. He clearly is not the quarterback of the future.
