The media needs to talk about something else other than quarterback battles in training camp. Especially the Browns, since it probably wont matter who the QB is, they arent contenders anyways.

In the original post, nothing was mentioned about the Ratliff guy...
A certain Browns fan I know sez he might be more promising than DA or Quinn...
Any thoughts from the Browns' gallery, since there isn't much being said about him on this thread?
Brady Quinn doesn't seem like he's proven much to anybody thus far, given that he hasn't had many oportunities, he just strikes me as a sympathy pick. DA? Who knows. At least he had that one decent year.

In other news, Brady Quinn is having trouble beating out the worst QB in the league from last year.

Carry on.

I was recently thinking about the great rivalry with the Browns. Losing to them was just so tough. We'd duke it out for the right to play in the AFC championship game, or the conference crown. Good times.

It's just not the same now. It's like playin my old high school team who went in the locker room and found the old jerseys and helmets left behind, decided to try them on, looked at each other at started yellin "LET'S WHOOP SOME STEELERS ASS"





note: those of you reading this please pray that my l'il good natured jab at our rival won't bring bad karma down on our heads. thank you.

I think that most Steelers fans would enjoy seeing the rivalry again. If nothing else, it would strengthen the conference if the Browns could rise up out of the muck.

@beSteelmyheart: The rumor I hear is that whomever loses between DA/BQ could find themselves traded with Ratliff being the packup. While Mangini likes Ratliff's moxie, I don't know that he is ready yet to be an NFL starter. If he is, then great, start him. I just want to see my team make some improvements so that we can actually have a real rivalry with the Steelers...and not just a pitiful hatred of a team that has owned us for far too long.

Quinn does not practice well, and never has...there is no way to gauge him until at leats preseason. He needs to get 1st team reps in a game situation before he can properly be evaluated.

It's funny though that he's neck and neck with DA given that he is such a shitty practice QB.

That is because DA is just a plain shitty QB.

The Browns should go with Quinn. Hell, Mangini should choose a starter after the second preseason game at the latest. In the third game is when the starters play the most in the preseason and if he doesn't know who he wants starting by then, the Browns have no chance of a decent (8-8ish) season.

I just don't understand what's going on there. You CANNOT draft a QB in the first rd (especially one you gave up the WORLD for) and not start him in his THIRD year in the league.

The Browns are just retarded...

I agree, the Browns need to step up and own their QB decision.

Chargers did it, they dumped Breese for Rivers...is Breese still a good QB, yep. Packers did it, Dumped Favre for Rogers.

You have to Make a Choice, start the guy and live or die by it for a few years. At least get the ball rolling and allow one of the guys to have the chance to be the starter for an entire season. Geesh.

We've done this through the Kordell Years, its Not Successful. Pick One "The Man" and Go with it, allow that Guy to Succeed or Fail for at least a year or 2 then move on if you have to and accept the failure. The back and forth start this guy this week, now start this guy nonsense is Not Productive at all.

Hell the Patriots did it back in the day. Bledsoe got hurt, Brady came in and did a great job, they dumped Bledsoe (who is still the all time leader passer in Patriots History)
