Cowboys’ Brandon Weeden: ‘I feel like I have something to prove’

The Cleveland Browns cut quarterback Brandon Weeden and he was scooped up by the Dallas Cowboys. Weeden said he had a chip on his shoulder and is ready to prove himself after a lackluster start to his career with the Browns.

“Absolutley,” Weeden said, via the Dallas Morning News. “I’m one of the most competitive guys you’ll meet. I don’t like not playing well. I don’t like losing. I hate it. I’ve never really been in a situation in any sport where I lost games and had the struggles that I had the last two years, so absolutely I have a chip on my shoulder.

“I feel like I have something to prove. That’s kind of the way that I go about it, starting now, even in the off-season, leading up to camp. I need to come out and kind of revive myself and get back to slinging the football around and playing with that confidence that I did back in college.”

    Lol brandon weeden sucks as a quarterback, and that’s all he will prove in Dallas. His quotes make me feel embarrassed for him haha


    I feel Weeden never had a chance in Cleveland because he never had a line to speak of. And he has a chance to learn from a good QB an that means a lot. I think given time he could prove that he can be a good QB in Dallas.

      Joe Thomas has been to 7 Pro Bowls, Alex Mack to 2, and John Greco is a guard that would easily start for us right now.
