+1

DA over shot his reciever badly a few times, and when Eric "Eazy-E" Wright got an interception in scoring range, DA could only lead the Browns to a field goal.

Quinn was only give like one series, and has looked pretty average. Not good, but not bad.

If it all doesn't work out, I hope the Browns draft this guy:

LeFevour COULD be the next great MAC QB. He's definitely got the size (I've seen him liosted at 6'3" everywhere, but weight varies from 29-238 depending on the website). That's prototypical NFL QB size, though. His worst game last year was against Georgia, but he STILL manages a QBR of 114.

He's probably going to be a good one but don't hold your breath on the Browns taking another high round QB.

Their "QB battle" looks more and more like a cripple fight.

If this is REAL, then Quinn must really suck, because DA never was, isn't, and never will be a starting NFL QB.

Of course it's REAL - that's what he said.

Cleveland Browns QB competition still very close, Eric Mangini says


BEREA, Ohio -- It will be another week without knowing the Browns' starting quarterback for the next preseason game on Saturday.

Pressed to assess the quarterback competition, coach Eric Mangini maintained that the process is playing out and he will not make a decision until he is able to make the right decision.

Mangini would not say who will start at quarterback against Tennessee in the game typically considered the dress rehearsal for the season opener. It would be Brady Quinn's turn to start based on Mangini's rotation.

The coach insists he is confident a winner will present itself before the opener on Sept. 13, even though he said the competition "is very close."

----------------------------------------




My point is, the fact that Quinn hasn't been able to put any distance between himself and Anderson shows how weak his claim to the job really is.

Depends really, I've seen him as a late first rounder, or as low as a third rounder.

I can see, that if the Browns do have a truly horrific season, Mangini trading down and maybe adding him to the roster, and getting a few bonus draft picks.

QB is pretty low on our needs list right now. We need to find some pass rushers, a running back, right tackle/guard and a safety. But if he slips to a 2nd-3rd round he'd be worth drafting.

I've really liked what I've seen out of him though, he's a hardworker (auctually trains with CMU's wrestling program from what I've heard), and the aforementioned stats and size really make me think he could be a good QB in the Pros.

Either Quinn is just average and Mangini isn't impressed with him...or he emulates Bellichick way to much and is going to play this close to the vest until an hour before the season opener.

Ha!

The Browns' QB's have combined for 0 touchdown passes, 4 INT's and a sack taken every 12 pass attempts this preseason.

No wonder Mangini can't decide on a starter.
