If you saw our Top 5/Bottom 5 Quarterback Rankings from Tuesday, you'll know that we're not high on Brandon Weeden. Most Browns fans feel the same. And one enterprising fan even went so far as to create a Craigslist ad seeking potential candidates to play quarterback in Cleveland.

The job-entry requirements are extraordinarily low.

Hello, and thanks for reading.
Have you played pro football? College ball? Highschool? Pee-wee?
Have you played Madden before?

Tough, right? Seriously though they will take "ANYONE" who can help them build on their surprising season.

Do you sort of kind of know some of the rules of football? If yes keep reading. If no...well also keep reading! We will take ANYONE. This could turn into a regular gig for the right person.

The Cleveland Browns as you may have noticed are having problems scoring points on offense consistently. We are deciding that we actually want to win this year and that we have a real shot at it too. 3 wins in 6 games!? We were expecting maybe 1/3 of those wins for the whole year, but SOMEHOW we have a shot still.

It's hard to blame Browns fans. They appeared to find an unlikely savior in Brian Hoyer and before he could really take off he was grounded by a season-ending injury. Enter Weeden, again. And it's hard not to be a little irate at the guy who pulled off arguably the worst interception in NFL history on Sunday.

This didn't go unnoticed by our job poster.

Here's the thing...our defense is sick nasty, but we've got problems under center...well one problem. Brandon Weeden. If you're sick of seeing desperation heaves to the sidelines, countless sacks after superb coverage, and underhanded lightly tossed interceptions in the 4th quarter then please come apply! 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 that's WIDE OPEN, throwing the ball more than 3 yards on 3rd and 16. Think you got what it takes? Come on down! You're the next contestant on Cleveland Quarterbacks!

Just don't be, um, redheaded. Or named Brett. (Or Rex I guess.)

Please no redheads, people named Brett, or any U. Of Florida alum.

That's pretty picky for a team desperate enough to look on the Internet for a quarterback.
