Brandon Weeden mocks Jerry Jones and Dallas Cowboys with playoff comments

Football News

Predominantly serving as Tony Romo's backup during his two seasons with the Dallas Cowboys, Brandon Weeden failed to make the most of his chance as a starter for the team in 2015 - losing three games before being benched for Matt Cassel.

To make matters worse, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones wasn't exactly complimentary when taking Weeden out of the firing line - calling into question the former Sooner's ability and decision-making. 

Shots fired

Now at the playoff-bound Houston Texans, the 32-year-old QB appears to have timed his own comeback for Jones to perfection today. Speaking on Tuesday, Weeden was more than happy to make reference to the contrasting fortunes of his former, and current employers.

Appearing on the 107.7 FM radio show in Oklahoma, Weeden was asked if he took pleasure in how things have turned out in 2015:

"I mean, yeah. Absolutely," he said. "We get to play extra football and he (Jerry Jones) will 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."

Players usually do their best to avoid controversial comments when talking about their former teams, but, in this case, it is clear to see there is no love lost between Weeden and the Cowboys organization.

Better place

And, after leading the Texans to a 34-6 win over the Tennessee Titans in week 16, it looks like the veteran is happy with where he has landed, and the teammates that now surround him:

"I think they were just as shocked as I was with some of the things that maybe Jerry or whoever was saying," Weeden said of the Texans locker room.

"...Everybody here has my back. When it's all said and done, that's really all that matters."

At 4-11 and with nothing to play for, there really isn't much the Dallas Cowboys can say in return.
