Brandon Weeden still believes he can be starter; Now he can prove it

It looked as though the starting quarterback job in Cleveland was Brandon Weeden’s lose when the season opened, but like so many QBs before him, an injury allowed the guy behind him on the depth chart to get a chance to play.

Entering last night’s game against the Buffalo Bills, it look as though there was no question Weeden was the No. 2 QB in Cleveland from here on out.

Then the script was flipped once again, and Brian Hoyer was knocked out of the game and potentially the year.

Ironically, Weeden said this week he was proceeding as though he’ll be starting again this season:

“I’d be lying if I said this was the ideal situation,” said Weeden.”I want to be out there. You never draw it up that you’re going to get hurt Week 2 and stuff like this happens. But it’s life. You can’t feel sorry for yourself.

“I’m treating it like this is still my football team, I’m still involved in the offense. I’m not discouraged.”
