As you may have heard, Johnny Football played in the fourth quarter of the game against Kevin’s beloved Bills. He did fairly well in his debut. Given that Hoyer was perfectly healthy and yet was pulled anyway, it seemed a no-brainer that Hoyer’s career with Cleveland was at an end.
A quick scan of Hoyer’s performances to date is not an encouraging one, especially in the past few weeks. If we use ESPN’s QBR, Hoyer is 27th and below average. His success is more correlated to an improved running game — until Alex Mack broke his leg — than his own talent.
I would say this — if Hoyer loses to the Colts (and I think he will), I bet he’s done. At least I hope so, at this point.
