Brian Hoyer is the starting quarterback for the Cleveland Browns in 2014.
I think he's their 19th starting QB since the Browns returned to Cleveland in 1999.

But first: Hoyer the Destroyer !!!
Who is Brian Hoyer?
- 2009 Went undrafted and was immediately signed by the Patriots.
- 2010 Brady's only backup. He saw his first action of the regular season late in a 34–14 loss to the Cleveland Browns, throwing his first career interception. In Week 17, against the Miami Dolphins, he threw a 42-yard touchdown pass to Brandon Tate, the first touchdown throw of Hoyer's NFL career.
- 2011 Hoyer retained his role as Brady's primary backup. His only pass attempt was the Patriots' final attempt of the 2011 regular season. The pass, which head coach Bill Belichick asked offensive coordinator Bill O'Brien to call, was a 22-yard pass to tight end Rob Gronkowski to give Gronkowski the NFL record for receiving yards by a tight end.
- 2012 Cut by Patriots in August. Signed with the Steelers in November. Released in December. Picked up off of waivers by the Cardinals. Hoyer replaced Ryan Lindley in Week 16 against the Chicago Bears, and started against the 49ers in week 17.
- 2013 Released by Cardinals in May. Signed by Browns 4 days later. Announced as starter for week 3 versus MN Vikings. After 2 great games, he suffered a season-ending ACL injury.
- 2014 TBD

The story of the Hoyer the Destroyer tee shirt:
Compare the Browns quarterback progression to the Bears:

Hoyer's comeback against the Titans is the largest ever comeback win on the road in the NFL. Surprising fact #2: a larger comeback road tie of 28 pts was performed by Otto Graham in 1947 BEFORE the NFL. And for those of you who are not either 80 years old or cleveland natives,Otto Graham was a browns hall of famer when the browns were still in the All-American Football Conference (AAFC).
