Cowboys owner Jerry Jones cut quarterback Brandon Weeden this season, and then dumped on his performance as soon as he was out the door, claiming his Cowboys would have won more games if they’d had Matt Cassel as their backup.
But it appears Weeden gets the last laugh as he helped guide the Houston Texans on Sunday with a win against Indianapolis to all but lock up the lowly AFC South.
Weeden joined 107.7 in Oklahoma City to talk about the support he’s getting in Houston, and to take a little shot at his former boss:
“Obviously a lot of guys here got my back,” Weeden said. “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. But everybody here has my back. When it’s all said and done, that’s really all that matters.”
“I mean yeah, absolutely. That’d be sweet,” he said on the opportunity to stick it to Jones.
“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,” Weeden said.
