Brandon Weeden wore 'good earmuffs' after ugly pick

Brandon Weeden turned 30 on Monday. Happy birthday to the NFL's answer to Scott Bakula.

Of course, we're not so sure Weeden was able to enjoy his special day, not so soon after The Flip.

It's an interception with the rare ability to appear worse with each subsequent viewing. Impressive. The quarterback has tried his best to block out the criticism following the Cleveland Brownsugly loss Sunday to the Detroit Lions.

"I have very good earmuffs on, went out and got about the best ones I could," said Weeden, via The Plain Dealer. "You can't listen to it."

"It's behind me," he added. "Obviously, I didn't lose any sleep over it. It stung at the time. It will probably always sting. If I go back and watch that game again it will bring back memories. It all happened so fast, like I said on Sunday night, you have to move on from it. You have to be positive. You have to be more consistent. It can't happen. Just don't let it happen again. That's the way I feel about it."

If Weeden proves to be a bust in Cleveland -- and there's considerable evidence we're headed in that direction -- it will be The Flip that Browns fans will remember. It's Weeden's Butt-Fumble.
