Brandon Weeden Says He's Happy Cowboys Didn't Make Playoffs

Brandon Weeden is currently channeling his inner Kirk Cousins, as he’s the one asking Jerry Jones and the Dallas Cowboys, "How you like that?"

Two months ago, Weeden was filling in for an injured Tony Romo and trying to lead the Dallas Cowboys to the playoffs.

Weeden started three games for Dallas, going 0-3 with just one touchdown pass and two interceptions. He lost the starting job to Matt Cassel and was cut when Romo returned from his collarbone injury in mid-November. 

The Texans claimed Weeden off waivers, and he’s carrying the offense to the playoffs in some sense. On Monday, Weeden says he took great satisfaction in the Cowboys not qualifying for the playoffs.

“I mean, yeah. Absolutely,” Weeden said, via Shalise Manza Young of Shutdown Corner. “We get to play extra football, and he’ll be watching on his couch. That’s what it’s all about. We’re playing for something, and this is a fun time of the year.”

Weeden wasn’t done, focusing on the support of the Texans locker room as well.

“Obviously a lot of guys here got my back. Nate Washington said some really nice things after last week’s win, which I really appreciated. Everybody here has got my back. They understand how the league works. I think they were just as shocked as I was with some of the things that maybe Jerry [Jones] or whoever was saying. It was kind of one of those things. Like I said, everybody here has my back. When it’s all said and done, that’s really all that matters.”
