Welcome to Bad Quarterback Performance Of The Week, a recurring feature in which we celebrate the worst quarterback play the NFL has to offer.
Bears coach John Fox admits he has no idea what he’ll do when Jay Cutler is healthy, since Brian Hoyer has played well. But he knows he really doesn’t want to hear any second-guessing from the media watching the game from a climate-controlled press box.
The Chicago Bears have the following quarterbacks on their roster: Brian Hoyer, Matt Barkley, and Jay Cutler. Two of those dudes are bad. The other has an injured thumb and the disposition of a disgruntled tabby cat. Not the most enviable position to be in, but let’s see how john Fox plans to figure it out.
Yesterday, Brian Hoyer played one of the very worst games by an NFL quarterback in the playoffs that I’ve ever seen. He threw four picks, lost a fumble, and I counted at least two other throws that could easily have turned into interceptions. By some metrics, it was one of the worst such games of all time; Hoyer had…
The Houston Chronicle reports that Brian Hoyer will not play on Sunday vs. the Jets, with T.J. Yates starting and newly signed Brandon Weeden backing up. Hoyer has yet to pass the tests to get out of the NFL’s concussion protocol, after a scary reaction to what looked at the time like a workaday hit.
The Texans may have the saddest ongoing quarterback controversy in the league, with head coach Bill O’Brien yo-yoing between Ryan Mallett and Brian Hoyer, both of whom are bad. According to a report from the Houston Chronicle, O’Brien tried to put an end to the back-and-forth before last Sunday’s game by cutting…
Brian Hoyer turned in an abysmal 14-31, two interception performance against the Colts on Sunday, and it looks like it will cost the Cleveland Browns quarterback his job. Hoyer has been one of the worst starting quarterbacks in the league all season, yet at 7-6 the Browns still have an outside shot at making the…
According to reports from NFL insider the 7-5 Browns are not going to start Johnny Manziel on Sunday against the Colts, despite the fact that Manziel played well after replacing struggling starter Brian Hoyer during last week's game against the Bills.
After coming on for Brian Hoyer in the fourth quarter, Johnny Manziel led Cleveland to its only touchdown of the game. That—or Hoyer's general effectiveness—appears to have been enough to earn Manziel the job. From everything coach Mike Pettine had to say afterward, it sounds like this season's most-hyped rookie has …
The Browns are .500! The Browns are .500! Brian Hoyer's the man after a huge comeback win against the Titans.
Once trailing 28-3, the Browns closed the game on a 26-0 run, and beat the Titans 29-28. The Browns are .500 and they will beat your ass in second halves.
Colin Kaepernick had an awful game Sunday night throwing three interceptions, fumbling once, and getting sacked four times. Sometimes, broad game stats can mask situational competence, but not here. According to data from Brian Burke of Advanced Football Analytics, Kaerpernick's interception at the beginning of the…
Early this morning, the Browns announced that Brian Hoyer will be their starting quarterback. Considering how uninspiring both he and Johnny Manziel have been this preseason, it was certainly not an easy choice.
We poked some fun at the Cleveland Browns when it was announced that career backup quarterback Brian Hoyer had been named the team's starter, but Hoyer's been balling today. He's followed up his good-but-not great debut with a solid first half against the Bengals.
The Browns did it! They really did it! Brian Hoyer threw a decent pass to Josh Gordon, and even though the coverage of the Vikings' secondary was awful, it's still an official touchdown for Cleveland. Do you believe in miracles?
I don't know you anymore, Browns.
THIS ACTUALLY HAPPENED.
The Cleveland Browns, everyone!
