Joe Starkey has a radio show Saturday mornings on ESPN Radio and was reading the e-mails he received from his editortial. Everything from calling him "a typical Steeler fan homer" to questioning how he got his job and that Quinn will lead the Stains to the promised land. It was comic gold of some of the crap they were spewing at Starkey, Steeler fans and Hoge.

If the Cleveland Browns really believed Brady Quinn was a franchise quarterback, they would have taken him with the third overall pick of the NFL draft last Saturday.
Think about it. If you have a choice between a franchise left tackle and a franchise quarterback, you take the quarterback every time, even if it costs you a bundle of cash.
The Browns took the tackle, Joe Thomas, then got silly and traded next year's first-round pick to Dallas, so they could peel back and pull Quinn out of commissioner Roger Goodell's private suite with the 22nd pick (couldn't Quinn stand the heat in the green room?). The Browns also plummeted from No. 36 to 53 in the second round as part of that deal and another.
Cleveland's tortured sports history already features "The Drive," "The Fumble," and "The Shot."

You may now add "The Reach."
This move reeked of a frenzied front office, one that obviously believes it must win now. In such a state, it was willing to mortgage the future. Next year's first-rounder might be a top-five pick.
Everybody thought the Miami Dolphins were going to take Quinn at No. 9. Dolphins coach Cam Cameron obviously knew better.
Cameron helped to develop Trent Green, and he tutored Philip Rivers in San Diego the past two seasons, so he knows a promising quarterback when he sees one.
He didn't see one in Quinn. Miami took Ted Ginn Jr., a pick many believe will live in infamy.
I say Ginn becomes more of an impact player than Quinn, even if it's only on special teams.
Plenty of others question Quinn's pedigree.
Analyst Merril Hoge ripped Quinn a day before the draft on ESPN Radio 1250. Watching video of all Quinn's throws at Notre Dame, Hoge said, was akin to watching "a bad ball drill."
Lots of completions, sure, but not many that put the receiver in position to keep going.
"It was like these acrobatic catches, down in the dirt, behind the shoulder," Hoge said. "He's very erratic in the pocket, very jittery."
Hoge went on to say that Stanford's Trent Edwards and Brigham Young's John Beck were better prospects than Quinn. The Dolphins took Beck with the 40th pick. The Buffalo Bills took Edwards, who was injured most of last season at Stanford, at No. 92.
When I contacted Hoge on Thursday, he didn't exactly back down from his stance on Quinn.
"It's not like you can debate it -- he really has accuracy issues," Hoge said. "Cam (Cameron) knows that. That's why they didn't take him. Cleveland made a big mistake."
In comparing Quinn with Beck and Edwards in various categories, Hoge said Quinn would win in only two: "Notre Dame and Charlie Weis."
By that, Hoge meant Quinn was radically overrated because he played for Weis.
Hoge was dead-on. After a bad year and a so-so one to start his career, Quinn's numbers skyrocketed when Weis arrived.
Did Weis tap into the franchise quarterback within Quinn, or was Quinn simply a product of the system? Cleveland won't like the answer to that question.

I'm not a fan of Starkey, particularly his stance on fighting in the NHL, but anyone who gets Clowns fans into a frothing rage gets a gold star in my book! :thumbsup: :sofunny:

Haven't the Stains' faithful said much the same thing in the past about both Tim Couch and Charlie Frye? Well, Stains fans, meet the new Rick Mirer.

as always, there is going to be a descending comment on any issue. personally, the reason you pick thomas instead of quinn at 3 isn't because you don't think brady quinn can't be the franchise quarterback, it's because you need an offensive line... especially a solid left tackle to protect the blind side of your quarterback. i think quinn isn't even going to start this season... i believe frye will have the starting job come game opener against the steelers... and this time, he'll actually have some pass protection and jamal lewis will have some run blocking.

and in the spirit of funny pictures....

Well here is what you hear at Browns camp. First you have Quinn pull up in his ride;

http://www.icess.ucsb.edu/~greg/msm/avatars/mx5-lameduck.gif

Then Quinn throws lame duck passes and shows why he will be lucky to have a passer rating of 50%. Then you look on other story's going around about the browns and you see injuries already piling up. Yep they should of waited till next years draft because there going to pick in the top 3 of the draft again and they could of got a decent QB. But hey were talking about the browns.

Let him get out on the field, I,m sure he'll develop a few from the turf rash.

Thanks. I believe it's the image that Quinn is going to have if he ever gets to see the field this year against the Steelers!!!

Brady Quinn probably won't play much this year, but it will be funny if the fans get antsy when the Browns lose a lot and they start cheering for him. I'm guessing that if the offensive line gets better, the whole team gets better even with the old quarterbacks, and if they don't, then it doesn't matter who plays quarterback.

I wonder about the scabs and zits and stuff. Quinn is a gym rat and works out maybe too much for a QB. Maybe he's on steroids?
