    Call me crazy but I don't necessarily think this is a bad thing for the Browns. The last thing the Browns wanted was Hoyer to play over his head this season and the Browns brass to think he was deserving of a contract (remember Derick Anderson?) This will give the current regime a chance to really see what Weeden can do and not give false hope that a journeyman backup is the next star.

    Don't we already know what Weedon can do (not much good)? And Hoyer would have had 14 games to show his stuff. Not exactly a small sample size if you were worried about people getting too excited about him. If he could have managed to perform well for 14 games, it would have been hard to say he wasn't deserving of the starting QB role.

    Of course, there was little doubt... The curse of Art Modell.

    But the Weed Man did play pretty good, likely a fluke...

    I agree. It's bad for Hoyer obviously, but maybe not overall for the Brown's as far as future decision-making when it comes to the draft.

    And don't ever mention the name Browns and that "other QB's name" ever again in the same sentence.

    That was one terrible contract (decision), and I said so when they made it.

    This will give the current regime a chance to really see what Weeden can do and not give false hope that a journeyman backup is the next star.
    Maybe losing his job will be a wake-up call for Weeden (I don't know). He didn't have Josh Gordon the first two games of the season, and that has made a difference.

    Weeden, as well as the rest of this team, is definitely going to get tested over the next few weeks facing Detroit, Green Bay, and Kansas City.

    Personally, I think they've already made the decision that Weeden ain't the guy. Even if he performs well, their overall win-lose record is what they are going to look at.

    And I still say 6-10.

    Browns and Colts both 3-0 since the trade. Good game by Richardson today.

    Does anybody remember when the Cleveland Browns’ front office appeared incompetent for trading running back Trent Richardson to the Indianapolis Colts?

    For those who need a refresher, the Browns dealt Richardson on Sept. 18 in exchange for a first-round pick. Many NFL observers believed Cleveland had given up on its season. Some thought Cleveland dealt away its best player to solidify a high draft pick in 2014. Meanwhile, Indianapolis supposedly acquired the final player needed to catapult its team to the Super Bowl.

    Cleveland, we apologize.

    Richardson has been an absolute bust since he arrived in Indianapolis, and as a result of his futility, he no longer will start for the Colts.

    It looks like the Browns managed to mitigate a blown draft pick from a couple years ago. Kudos to them

    Re: Browns trade Trent Richardson

    I wonder what Richardson would do behind a decent line. The Browns line isn't anything to write home about, and by many accounts, the Colts line is atrocious.
    Sabermetrics is this: A batter's goal is to extend the inning. Extend enough innings and you're going to score runs. Extend more innings than your opponent and you're going to score more runs than him.

    Forget the rain. It's never an official game until the Reds piss away a run between third base and home plate. - Bluegrass Redleg

    Donald Brown isn't having too much trouble running behind that line. Richardson hits the hole very slowly and doesn't look decisive. I wonder if it would help him to lose a little weight to get a little bit more quickness. He would still be insanely strong, but 220 instead of 230 might make a big speed difference

    Donald Brown runs in different formations and when he started he had 8 carries for 8 yards until the 4th quarter. Not going to apologize for Trent but I doubt any back can be successful with the Colts interior line.
    I was in the ORG once, best 6 months of my life.
