This week, Marshall Faulk said, "To be Professional Grade, you must keep a single focus on the goal at hand," and then asked the question, "In the midst of adversity, who is that one leader that helps keep your team focused on the field?"
Right now, I think we no doubt have to say that QB Brian Hoyer is the leader who keeps this team focused. Even though the Browns lost to the Steelers in Week 1, could you have seen former Browns quarterbacks like Colt McCoy, Brandon Weeden, or Jason Campbell leading that type of comeback? Comebacks for Browns quarterbacks after the Tim Couch days are rare, and yet Hoyer has pretty much been the definition of clutch when the game is on the line.
Here is a stat that back up Hoyer's late-game focus and leadership:
One last Hoyer stat. He ranks 10th in the league in fourth-quarter passer rating (95.8), just ahead of Drew Brees and Peyton Manning.— Steve Doerschuk (@sdoerschukREP) September 17, 2014
Who else on the Browns do you view as a leader, Browns fans, either on offense, defense, or special teams?
