Brandon Weeden furious after being demoted by Dallas Cowboys

Brandon Weeden is angry, and he does not care who knows it.

After being replaced as the incumbent starting quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys, Weeden has revealed that he is "pissed" with the decision.

Weeden spoke to the Dallas Star-Telegram after Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett decided to replace him with Matt Cassel for  Dallas' next game, which is in two weeks time, and his response was probably what you would expect.

“How do you think I took it? Obviously I’m pissed,” Weeden said, according to Drew Davison. “But, you know, nature of this business.”

Weeden has completed 72.4 percent of his passes in the three-and-a-bit games he has played in for the Dallas franchise since Tony Romo broke his collarbone earlier in the season. But, somehow, that hasn’t been enough for the former Cleveland Browns QB to keep his job.

The Cowboys have lost every single one of the games that Weeden has started, but the blame for that has to be laid at the feet of the defense, who have given up an average of over 30 points a game during that span.

Cassel will be starting at quarterback for the Cowboys when they return from their bye for a Week Seven date with the Giants.

Garrett said that he hoped to spark the offense by making the move to Cassel, although Cassel’s history makes it hard to think that things will catch fire as long as Dez Bryant remains one the sidelines with his broken metatarsal.
