The last good quarterback Cleveland had was Bernie Kosar. That was 26 years ago. Since then we've drafted:

Eric Zeier, 3rd rd. 1994 - Tim Couch, #1 overall 1999 - Spergon Wynn, 6th rd. 2000 - Luke McCown, 4th rd. 2004 - Charlie Frye, 3rd rd. 2005 and Brady Quinn 1st rd. 2007.

It's 2009 and we are once again looking for our franchise QB. Cleveland has had a poor history of developing quarterbacks ever since Belichick ran Bernie out of town. I have little faith in the Browns ability to draft and develop one out of next years draft. Make that no faith. I just don't like the odds.

My solution is let someone else do all the work, then trade for him. I know, teams are unwilling to deal their franchise QB, so maybe a trade is out of the question. Maybe we could get a Curt Warner in free agency like the Arizona Cardinals did. Or even a Kerry Collins. Wasn't Jake Delohmme and Tony Romo undrafted? I guess we could have traded for Jay Cutler.

How about Kevin Kolb? That's it. The Eagles have Donavon McNabb and Micheal Vick. I bet we could steal Kolb for a 3rd rd. pick. Then we could trade Quinn and Anderson for a wr with hands and a cornerback to cover Hines Ward. That's it. I just figured out the solution to our QB problem.
