For Cleveland Browns fans, the thought of yet another quarterback failing them is an unbearable notion.

Years of quarterback futility are enough to strike pain into the heart of even the most calloused Browns fan.

Yet, after two disappointing seasons with Colt McCoy at the helm, another highly-touted college prospect is set to do the same in 2012—this time in the form of Brandon Weeden.

The former Oklahoma State Cowboy arrives in Cleveland as a 28-year-old rookie. Weeden played five seasons of minor-league baseball before returning to school to pursue a career as an NFL quarterback.

He produced monster numbers during his final two years in the collegiate ranks. He completed just under 70 percent of his passes, while throwing for over 9,000 yards and 75 touchdowns.

These statistics reveal remarkable accuracy and conference-leading production.

Let’s detail the three reasons why Brandon Weeden will indeed disappoint the Cleveland Browns in 2012.
