Brady Quinn to Start Monday Night Against the Ravens


So quarterback Brady Quinn is once again the starting quarterback of the Cleveland Browns.  He has taken the place of Derek Anderson, who I'm probably never going to post a different picture of Brady Quinn than this one.has been benched in part because his passer rating of 36.3 is the lowest for an NFL quarterback through eight weeks of a season since 1981.  You can say he has been plagued by dropped passes and fumbles by receivers, but Anderson has looked nothing short of awful in every possible way.  Any Anderson supporter at this point cannot say he was not given a fair chance with this team.

It is now hopefully time to see what Quinn can do with no distractions and more than 2 1/2 games to prove himself.  It won’t come easy, however, because his first game back as a starter will be against the Baltimore Ravens.  Head coach Eric Mangini must hate Quinn or something, because he knows the Browns have no shot in hell of beating – or even competing, really – against the Ravens.  Quinn is set up to fail on Monday night, and the Ravens will throw everything they’ve got at him.  And the best part of all this?  It gets to happen on national television!

I would have to think Quinn is going to perform better in his second go-around as the starting quarterback.  What will be most interesting is how his relationship with the offensive coordinator, Brian Daboll, unfolds.  Turns out, the two went a “long time” without talking after Quinn’s benching and rightfully so – Daboll’s awful playcalling should take much of the blame for the offense’s struggles.

No matter what happens, Quinn deserves to be the starting quarterback and it better stay that way the rest of the season.  That is, if Eric Mangini wants to have any hope of keeping his job into next season.

    Finally, Mangina has done something that makes sense. The only question is… what took so long? DA was nothing but horrible since he was put in. Hell he had a game where he only completed 2 passes. When he replaced Quinn at halftime; Quinn only had to INcomplete passes. Personally I think it was a money issue. As crazy as that sounds, Quinn is due a large bonus if he plays 70% of the snaps. Now being at the halfway point of the season it would appear almost impossible for that to happen. I hope Quinn gets the rest of the season to show what he’s got. Will he prove that he can be the starter of the future or will he prove that he is a bust? Personally I think it will be hard to tell. With the play calling of Daboll I don’t think Peyton Manning could look as good as he is, but at least he is getting a chance. With a couple of average(even below average)teams coming up on the schedule we should get a fair read on Quinn and know which direction to take in to the draft.
