The Cleveland Plain-Dealer’s Henry Gomez reports vice-presidential aspirant / Andrew Sciliano lookalike Paul Ryan (above)  visited Browns practice in Berea, OH today and mistook Cleveland backup Colt McCoy for starter Brandon Weeden.

While addressing players, Ryan praised Weeden, whom he recalled watching play for Oklahoma State, according to a pool report.

The only problem: The Wisconsin congressman was pointing to McCoy.

Ryan pleaded for mercy when he realized his mistake.

“You always had your helmet on,” he said of the redheaded Weeden.

It’s an equally embarrassing moment for Ryan and McCoy, but on the bright side, no one has mistaken the former Longhorn for a pile of clean pots & pans that required no cleaning.
