Stupid Weeden. Only a dick would allow the Browns to draft him.
Unless he's a cutie pie with great big doe eyes. Then it's OK.
No way it could be because someone didn't and doesn't think he can play. God, do those people look foolish. Sure is crazy to put any stock in what people said before the draft, and that Greg Cosell blurb wasn't even close to accurate.
Good God... "personal dislike"... Bwah!!!!! Talk about butt-hurt.
No, you're right. The respect afforded Weeden after being drafted was exactly the same as Colt or Quinn. No one said anything negative about them prior to the draft. Drafting them wasn't a "mistake".
True. I forgot about the Colt McCoy Parade the citizens of Cleveland put on when he was drafted in the third round that one year. That was a good time. The beer & steer dinner in honor of the long horn was a great way to end that festive occasion.
And the Quinn pick didn't do anything in particular for me. I wasn't the one at Panini's sharing hugs with fellow Browns fans. But I know some who were. Solid history of picking guys out for success.
