Moving On: A Look at the Cleveland Browns' Ex-Quarterbacks
Just recently, the Browns signed Jake Delhomme to a two-year deal, and traded for Seneca Wallace.
People thought it was crazy to sign Delhomme, who was coming off his worst season last year with the Panthers.
Funnily enough, the veteran who was supposedly washed up ended up going 6 for 7 for 66 yards, and that was better than the horrendous playing of quarterbacks the past two years for the Browns.
Seneca Wallace also did fine, as he threw touchdowns to tight end Benjamin Watson and wide receiver Brian Robiskie.
Here's a look back at the quarterbacks who have been starting for the past two years.
Anderson is one of those big-armed quarterbacks that all pro scouts and coaches love, but unfortunately, Anderson never quite seemed all that good.
He was after all, a sixth-round pick out of Oregon State. He first had his breakout season or one-hit-wonder season in 2007, throwing for 29 touchdowns, and 19 interceptions.
But then, the following year, he failed miserably, and threw only 9 touchdowns and 8 interceptions.
Then, in 2009, Anderson hit a career low, as he threw 3 touchdowns for 10 interceptions for a very low passing of 40, and a very low completion percentage.
During his tenure in Cleveland, one could describe it as inconsistent, terrible, and nothing short of a trainwreck.
Brady Quinn was formerly drafted by the Browns in the first round, and never really lived up to expectations.
He was good, but not great in his NFL debut against the Broncos (the irony!), and was inconsistent in his last two games in the 2008 season, and went on IR.
He never took the reins during his starts in the 2009 season, and that's why Quinn is out of Cleveland, and is now in Denver.
That's why the Browns benefit greatly for having two veterans in Delhomme and Wallace.
The team can experience growth at the expense of the offense, and the defense can now relax and confide in the fact that the Browns now no longer have a ball-and-chain bringing down the offense, and therefore in turn, keep the defense rested.
