Browns | Quarterback battle remains open
 
Browns | Quarterback battle remains open

Mon, 10 Aug 2009 08:31:19 -0700

George M. Thomas, of the Akron Beacon Journal, reports Cleveland Browns QBs Brady Quinn and Derek Anderson were both inconsistent during a scrimmage Sunday, Aug. 9. The quarterback battle is expected to last well into the preseason. "I thought both guys had their moments on the plus side and the side that we still need to work on," head coach Eric Mangini said. "They moved the team at different times with different levels of effectiveness." Quinn completed 11-of-19 passes for 121 yards, including a 51-yard touchdown pass and an interception. Anderson completed 12-of-21 passes for 107 yards and an interception, and he scored a touchdown on a 6-yard scramble.

Flip a coin Mankok....flip a coin.

The fact they just won't name Quinn the starter proves to me this team is destined to be mired in mediocrity for the foreseeable future. DA's QBR has been dropping like a rock since December of '07...

Didn't the Browns pass on Big Ben in the 2004 draft to take KW2?

I thought so.

Didn't want him them, don't want him now.

If he would have been drafted by the Browns that year he would have been out of the league by now or a backup for the Oakland Raiders.

Ben landed in a good situation with the Steelers, he already had a team that had been built up with a ground game, good recievers, decent o-line, and a great World Beater type defense.

The same could not have been said of the 2004 Browns who really had 0 Pro Bowlers on their roster on either side of the ball.

I'd take him on my fantasy team, but that's about it..but lets face some facts, he would not help the Browns win games at this time.

His contract is HUUUUGE, so you have that going against him, and their is still massive holes in the defense and on the right side of the o-line.

Browns have bigger problems right now then who's starting at QB.

Negative ghostrider - that has always been the Brown's biggest problem.

Never forget - Charlie Frye beat out DA....and all y'all were kissing his butt too, as the next messiah.

Disagree whole-heartidly.

You can win with a mediocre Qb, just ask the 2000 Baltimore Ravens and 2002 Bucs.

heck for as bad as the Steelers choked in the AFC title games under Cowher, they were at least able to reach them

The Browns can't even do that right now. They need to build up their defense, get some pass rushers, get a solid ground game going and finish building up the Rightside of the o-line, then we can talk QB.

The Browns had a decent line for a couple years, and decent skill players. Ben would have torn it up on the Browns, and they'd have been able to craft a winning team around him.

This is a loser mentality that permeates the fan base stemming from an inferior product on the field...it's like a poison for the mind...

We tried building from the skill positions...it failed. You (revs) just can't get past the fact that we're trying to build the team the right way now. You can't get past how bad we've been lately.

We're building the team with the lines...then working our way out. Big Ben would have been a mistake to draft...just like KW2 was. We don't need skill players when there's no line to speak of (and when he was drafted, we had no line to speak of.) Drafting Joe T was a step in the right direction. Drafting Alex Mack should be a pretty good step in the right direction. If we can fix deficiencies on our O-line and fix the issues with our Front-7 on D...we'll be a much improved team.
