Brady Quinn was a hometown hero brought in to resurrect the Cleveland Browns from the dark cloud of professional football obscurity.
Unfortunately, Brady Quinn had other plans.
Quinn was taken 22nd in the 2007 NFL draft as Cleveland traded up to acquire him.
The Browns only used Quinn once during his first season with the team, and that was enough to get people claiming a quarterback controversy.
It only took three games in 2008 for Quinn to gain support from Browns followers as chants like "Quinn to win" and "We are the Brady bunch" began to be heard from the seats of Cleveland Browns Stadium.
Quinn did not have any consistent playing time until 2009 when he officially took over the starting job.
In 10 games, Quinn posted a record of just 2-7 (only nine starts) and threw 10 touchdowns against nine interceptions.
Browns fans tried as hard as they could to support Quinn, blaming the teams misfortunes on a lack of talent surrounding the young quarterback.
Early in the 2009 offseason it looked as though the Browns finally decided on Quinn as the quarterback of the future when the team released Derek Anderson.
However, that notion was short-lived when Cleveland traded Quinn to the Denver Broncos a short time later.
