Seasons of Change, but Not in Cleveland

This is not an article to hate on Derek Anderson.  This will also be a short article.  I'm looking for a general consensus from the community on what to do.


How many times do we need to shift starting QBs?  How many drafts do we need to waste?  This is why Cleveland has not changed this year.  Listening to Mary Kay Cabot and Tony Grossi, you'd think that Quinn has shot the team in the foot after being named starting QB just earlier this month.

Considering the facts, when ESPN keeps saying the Browns have only 1 TD in the past (fill in the blank) games, that TD came from Brady Quinn's arm.  If you want to say it was in garbage time, do it. A TD is a TD.  But you can also knock his INTs from 3 to 1, maybe even 0.

  • Braylon Edwards runs the wrong route, Minnesota picks it off
  • Browns moving down the field in "garbage time" in Denver, tipped pass gets picked
  • Braylon Edwards might have run the proper right, but watches Baltimore pick it off

Enter Derek Anderson.  And what do you hear?  "The Browns need to see what he has."  "Well he moved the ball down-field."  "He had the Pro Bowl in 2007."

The Browns saw what he's had ever since late 2007 to training camp 2009.  I think if the Browns trade away Quinn or don't give him his chance (and that includes Daboll calling a few pass plays every now and then) it will come back to bite them badly.


But most importantly, what do you guys think?  Let's steer away from the insults, info/insight/opinion/analysis/facts only please.
