Since the Cleveland Browns went back to Brandon Weeden as their starting quarterback, they’ve lost two-straight games and are 0-4 on the year in games he has started. That’s not exactly the kind of record you want your QB who you spent a first-round draft pick on last year, and after a preseason of the Browns coaches being reluctant to name Weeden the starter, it now sounds as though the players are also losing confidence in Weeden:

Weeden started the first half against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday by completing two of his first 11 passes while tossing in an interception and posting a 1.7 quarterback rating. His numbers improved once thew game got out of reach, and he is as ineffective a starting QB as there is right now.
