Cleveland Browns Fan Post Craigslist Ad For New Quarterback
"We will take ANYONE" says the Craigslist ad posted Monday by Cleveland Browns fan Seth Pae as a way to vent his frustrations with the team's performance this year.
I was blowing off steam. We've had like 396 quarterbacks since 1999. It's a bit much. We're still looking for 'the one.' I feel like we're the Ted Mosby of football teams; we're still looking for the one.
The Ted Mosby reference is from the TV show "How I Met Your Mother" and the character's constant search for the "right woman."
All this stems from a long standing problem the Browns have had including recently with QB Brandon Weeden - who was a first round pick and didn't live up to expectations for fans. In their lose to Detriot this past Sunday, Weeden threw a shovel pass that was intercepted and sealed the teams fate in that game.
I watched video of it a couple times, and I saw two wide receivers wide open. He decided to shovel pass it to nobody which set - Pae
It was that play that pushed Pae over the top and create the Craigslist ad that also included:
If you're sick of seeing desperation heaves to the sidelines, countless sacks after superb coverage, and underhanded lightly tossed interceptions in the fourth quarter then please come apply!" the ad reads. "If you can throw a ball, come apply! If you can't, come anyway! We can teach you the basics ... throwing the ball to the guy who has the same color shirt as you. Throwing the ball reasonably close to a receiver (who is) WIDE OPEN, throwing the ball more than (three) yards on third and 16.
How does Weeden feel about the criticism of his play? Well for starters he was stopped following social media.
I got very good earmuffs on. I went out and bought the best ones I could. You can't listen to the criticism.
