Brandon Weeden is a terrible quarterback.  If you don’t think so, I’d hate to break it to you, but you don’t know much about football.

After being drafted by the Cleveland Browns in the first round of the 2012 NFL Draft, Weeden went on to play just five season with three different teams (Browns, Cowboys and Texans), before being cut by Houston before the 2017 season.  In 34 career appearances (25 starts), the 33-year-old has complied 31 touchdowns, 30 interceptions, a completion percentage of 57.9%, and a 76.0 quarterback rating.

Those are bad numbers.  Like, Brock Osweiler bad.  By comparison, Osweiler has 26 touchdowns, 22 interceptions, a 59.9 completion percentage, and a 77.4 quarterback rating in 36 career games (21 starts).

So yeah, Weeden sucks.  But with Marcus Mariota questionable for Sunday’s game against the Miami Dolphins (hamstring), the Tennessee Titans are still expected to sign Weeden to back up Matt Cassel in case Mariota can’t go.

Were there better options available for the Titans?  Many people seem to think so, and the name that’s been coming up the most is Colin Kaepernick.

Sure, Weeden could end up getting cut by the weekend if Mariota is deemed healthy enough to play.  And maybe the Titans didn’t want to bother signing Kaepernick if they knew they’d probably be getting rid of him in a few days (or a week, max). But all of that didn’t stop the internet from going off on Tennessee’s decision to choose Weeden over Kaep.

Here’s how they reacted:
