05:34 PM ET 09.25 | Cleveland Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden is making big improvements from a previously injured throwing thumb, but that won't stop the team from rolling out Brian Hoyer as their starter when they take on the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 4. Weeden will resume throwing this week. However, Hoyer, who led the team to their first win of the year last week against the Minnesota Vikings, gets the call with a vote of confidence from head coach Rob Chudzinski.

It should be Hoyer's job to lose as long as he can keep producing like he did last week.

I wish the kid all the best. I'd love to see Cleveland do well, except for their owner.

He had a nice advantage over Weeden - Josh Gordon.

Agreed. The kid played well enough for the Browns to give him a proper chance to keep the position.

While that is true that Gordon is a valuable weapon....Any who has watched the first three games Cleveland played would see that Weedon has NOT made the kind of throws Hoyer did last week. Hoyer made several throws that had GREAT placement.

Now Hoyer looked like he was going to fall apart in the second half and pretty much did, then got it all together for the final game winning drive in which he looked great again. Weedon NEVER looked as good as Hoyer did in the first half and last drive.

So I agree, that the starting job is NOW Hoyer's to keep or lose. If he can keep it together and not make those second half mistakes he made, he will be the starter. Weedon's biggest challenges are holding the ball to long (which Hoyer was fantastic at most the game getting rid of quickly), no touch on the ball when needed and missing wide open receivers. I WAS hoping Weedon would be the guy, NOW I am hoping Hoyer has the abilities that he showcased possible.
