Weeden: It’s Satisfying Jerry Jones Will Be ‘Watching (Playoffs) On His Couch’
Former Dallas Cowboys QB, Brandon Weeden is flying high right now. He was scooped up by the injury riddled Houston Texans after being released by the Dallas Cowboys because he couldn’t get it done. Weeden is fresh off 2 games with the Texans, 1 in which he came in when QB T.J. Yates went down with an ACL injury and led the team to their 1st victory against the Colts in Indy EVER. This past Sunday, he led the team to a 34-6 win in Tennessee where he threw for 2 TD’s and ran in 1.
Who is this guy?? Couldn’t get it done with one Texas team, gets it done with the other. On Monday, Weeden went on Oklahoma’s 107.7 The Franchise to discuss his recent performance.
“Will it be extra satisfying because of what Jerry [Jones] said to see the Cowboys completely just turn into a dumpster fire if you’re in the playoffs?”
“I mean yeah, absolutely. That’d be sweet. We get to play extra football and he’ll be watching on his couch.”
To be fair, Jerry Jones threw him under the bus earlier this month when QB Tony Romo went down and the team couldn’t win with him at the helm.
“On the other hand, if you want to look at any aspect of this team you can say well, if we would have been in better shape had you had Matt Cassel in the spring, rather than Weeden, and I’m not trying to knock Weeden, but if we would have had a guy like Cassel in here than we might have made a difference there, so put that one ultimately on my shoulders for sure,” Jones said on 105.3 The Fan earlier in the month.
On @1053thefan, Jerry Jones says that Matt Cassel would have won the games that Brandon Weeden lost.

(Quick note: Cassel went 1-6 as the starter.)
