Browns' Brandon Weeden deletes Twitter, doesn't need advice from 7-year-old kid


Despite the displeasure from Cleveland Browns fans, Brandon Weeden is back to being the starting quarterback, though this time out of default due to injury.

Unfortunately for Weeden and the fan base, the results are the same which has lead to the faithful voicing their frustration on local talk radio and social media, social media that Weeden apparently no longer has any desire for.

The Browns quarterback recently deleted his Twitter account due to public backlash, suggesting that he doesn’t need the advice of a 7-year-old:

“I don’t have it any more,” he said. “She got rid of it, too.
“Get rid of the temptation. It’s on your phone. There’s temptation and … it’s useless.”
At one point, Weeden alluded to a sample criticism that does him no good:

“I’m mature enough to not listen to what a 7-year-old kid has to tell me how to play quarterback.”

While that probably wasn’t the best thing he could have said, I understand Weeden’s frustrations. The last thing you need to hear are thousands of anonymous people on the internet barking at you because of your poor play.

    That 7yr old kid probably is a better quarterback than you.
    I bet he wouldn’t try to shovel the ball down field like you did.
    I have “Never” seen any quarterback do that in my 50 years of playing and watching football.
    Get used to criticism, Weeden. Till you show that you were not a flop pick, you will be hearing more of it.
