Brandon Weeden Would Like To Remind You That Jerry Jones Will Be ‘Watching The Playoffs On His Couch’
The Houston Texans are poised for the playoffs, at least for now. If they beat the Jaguars on Sunday they're in -- and there's even a scenario that put them in if they lose. That would be great news to Brandon Weeden, who would love to rub it in a little more on Jerry Jones.
Weeden is 2-0 as a starter for the Texans after being released by the Cowboys in November. At the time, Jones took a parting shot at Weeden when Tony Romo returned from injury:
On @1053thefan, Jerry Jones says that Matt Cassel would have won the games that Brandon Weeden lost.

Classy. Well, now Dallas is 4-11 -- tied with the 49ers for the worst record in football -- and Weeden just could be starting a playoff game (pending Sunday's results and the concussion status of Brian Hoyer). CBSSports:
During an interview with Oklahoma radio station 107.7 The Franchise, Weeden was asked if it felt good to help lead the Texans to the playoffs in light of Jones' jab at him. He responded with a solid retort (via NFL.com's Conor Orr).
"Absolutely. 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 then went on to say nice things about the Texans' locker room.
"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 or whoever was saying. It was kind of one of those things. Like I said, everybody here has my back."
Meanwhile, Jones refused to meet with the press following the Cowboys' 16-6 loss to the Bills on Sunday, the first time this season he's failed to do that. He did talk on Monday, however, saying that he was "proud of Weeden."
Jesus, what a dolt. Once you throw someone under the bus, it's embarrassing and difficult to try and pull them back out.
