Vikes are going to be blitzing like crazy. Browns o-line have given up the most sacks thus far.

Actually the Vikings plays cover 2 so they rarely blitz if ever. They plan on getting pressure with the front 4.
Yahoo 12 team PPR with IDP:

QB- Tony Romo
WR- Calvin Johnson
WR- Dwayne Bowe
WR- Brandon Lloyd
RB- LeSean Mccoy
TE- Jermichael Finley

No, campbell is being demoted to QB No. 3. Hoyer is likely starting for the Browns this weekend.

This is a good move for the Browns. Weeden hadn't progressed at all. They have most of the offensive pieces in place, they just need competent QB play.

This is why I do not see the Vikes being such a great start. Thomas can handle Allen one on one and the rest of the Vikes defense leaves little to be desired. Would not be surprised one bit if T-Rich finally goes off.

They aren't benching Weeden. His thumb is sprained.
And what would make you think Hoyer is more competent than Weeden?

A Cleveland beat writer, right after the Richardson trade was announced, said the same thing on the NFL Network. They are basically moving on from all the previous regime's personnel. Hoyer, it appears, is the starter for the rest of the season.

FWIW, there is precedent for this type of situation in Cleveland. Then "franchise QB" Charlie Frye (who?) was their starter in 2007 Week 1. He stunk the place up against the Steelers and a relatively unknown Oregon State Beaver named Derek Anderson took over in the second half. Week 2, Anderson started and threw for 328 yards and 5 TDs against Cincinnati Week 2, retained the starting job and won many virtual pigskin players championships with a very solid season (3800/29/19).

Not saying Hoyer is lightning in a bottle, but if you're desperate for a backup, you could do worse, especially with Josh Gordon coming back and the running game obviously being non-existent now.

A little off topic, but why have a depth chart if you don't stick to it when it matters?

Don't you lose a little credibility with the players if you tell a guy he's the backup, only to skip over him when the time comes? They thought Campbell was good enough to backup Weeden, but not to start?

Only the Browns.
