And then over there you got JB making Nena references and e0y hating Star Trek for no apparent reason.
The only thing that hasn't happened is the only thing I was sure would happen...FUDU talking up Stratego.
All in the Brian Hoyer thread that SD made which, 2 years later, mirrors almost exactly the same thread he made about Colt McCoy. Before he turned on him a week and a half later.
This place, man.
Quite frankly it's not even fare to compare HOyer to WEeden this year. Weeden has had zero opportunities this year to play with the only skilled skill position player the Browns have in Josh Gordon (although I think Cameron has also made it to that point). I'm not convinced that isn't the only difference between Hoyer and Weeden this year. Hoyer got to play with Gordon and Weeden didn't.
Huge playin with Drahnk Dude.
But in isolation, the ball comes out from Hoyer and he makes a read and decision quickly. That's the single one big thing.
Having mobility and pocket awareness, and hitting a WR in a position to get YAC is also a difference, but the ball leaving the QB's hand on time in tempo is The One Big Thing.
Don't matter if his WR is Josh Grobin or Josh Gordon.
