Since the Cleveland Browns went back to Brandon Weeden as their starting quarterback, they’ve lost two-straight games and are 0-4 on the year in games he has started. That’s not exactly the kind of record you want your QB who you spent a first-round draft pick on last year, and after a preseason of the Browns coaches being reluctant to name Weeden the starter, it now sounds as though the players are also losing confidence in Weeden:
#Browns TE Jordan Cameron said team has confidence in Weeden but would trust organization if it decided to change QBs. Trusts Campbell too.

Weeden started the first half against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday by completing two of his first 11 passes while tossing in an interception and posting a 1.7 quarterback rating. His numbers improved once thew game got out of reach, and he is as ineffective a starting QB as there is right now.
At some point in his career, Brandon Weeden will throw to a player who is inactive.

Weeden finished the game having completed only 17/42 pass attempts (40.5 percent) for 149 yards with one touchdown and one interception as the Browns lost, 31-13.
