The Cleveland Browns have had quite a dissapointing season. They currently stand 4-8 and have a rotating cast of four quarterbacks. So far, Brandon Weeden has started in five games, Jason Campbell has started in four, and Brian Hoyer has started in three.

Weeden is the latest to face the ire of Browns fans after a 28-32 loss to the pathetic Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday. And even though Weeden suffered a concussion during, one BBQ joint thinks he hasn’t been roughed up enough.

The Briquettes Smokehouse in Ashtabula, Ohio posted a unique Sunday special on their Facebook page: “The Weeden Burger.” It consists a “tender all beef patty, cooked perfectly, and smothered in toppings which we systematically pick off right before your eyes while you watch helplessly; all before dropping the burger on the ground right before it is set down in front of you.”

It is served with a half glass of beer.

Owner Nate Rockwell told Fox Sports that the idea was created from “just general frustration over the level of play by Weeden, his level of inconsistency ever since getting here.” He expanded on the plight of Browns fans, saying, “Year after year we’ve been waiting for that special moment when the team is in first place for more than two games.”

This one might hurt Weeden more than the concussion did.
