Poor Dog Pound, but funny fans
It's come to this for Cleveland Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden: His job was advertised on Craigslist.
"Have you played pro football?" asks the ad that 22-year-old Seth Pae, a graduate student at DePaul, took credit for posting. "College ball? High school? Pee-wee?
"Have you played Madden before? Do you know some of the rules of football? If yes, keep reading."

Ron Schwane/USA TODAY SportsBrandon Weeden's inconsistent play prompted one frustrated Browns fan to offer up the quarterback's job on Craigslist.
And if no?
"... well also keep reading!" the ad reads. "We will take ANYONE!"
This is what happens with the Browns, a team that has used 19 starting quarterbacks since 1999 and is regularly the butt of jokes locally and nationally.
The city has become famous for radio rants about the team. In 2011, a local comedian named Mike Polk posted a YouTube video in which he stood by FirstEnergy Stadium and voiced his frustrations. He concluded by calling the stadium "a factory of sadness," before adding, "I'll see ya Sunday."
As far as pranks go, it is on par with the guy who put in his will that he wanted six Browns players to be his pallbearers so that the team could "let him down one last time."
That last one MMLMAO
