The quarterback nightmare is back, as we will once again have to deal with the debate over who should be the starting quarterback of the Browns. Brady Quinn was benched in favor of Derek Anderson on Sunday, and Anderson responded by throwing three interceptions. Now Eric Mangini is somehow faced with the dilemma of who to start against the Bengals, although it seems like a fairly easy decision.
Sure, Anderson can stretch the field, but it would help to see him actually get the ball to his own receivers. Quinn just seems afraid to make any mistakes and is stuck throwing mind-numbingly short passes.
I sound like a broken record, but I feel like I need to say it again: you know what you have in Derek Anderson. Quinn, for all his recent struggles, is still an unproven quarterback and should be given ample time to get better. Benching him will do him no good and, let’s face it, no one expected the Browns to be a playoff team this year anyway. Everyone knew going into the season that it would be a rebuilding year like every other and it would be in the team’s best interest to at least give Quinn a chance. Apparently two and a half games was enough though…
Who gives the Browns the best chance to beat the Bengals? Anderson or Quinn?
