It has been reported by foxsports.com reporter, John Czarnecki, that current Cleveland Browns head coach Eric Mangini "isn't a fan of Brady Quinn."


So why would Mangini name Quinn as his starter for the 2009 season?

One might say that Czarnecki's statement could be true since Mangini benched Quinn after 10 quarters of play, but then Quinn was reinserted back into the starter position for Week 10 against the Baltimore Ravens due to Derek Anderson's ineptness in five-and-a-half games.

So where does Czarnecki gets this information?

He did not quote the coach as to saying this, and there is nothing to really back it up.

Now that president and quarterback guru Mike Holmgren is in Cleveland, he will get to the bottom of the quarterback position by evaluating Quinn's tapes.

One could say that all the talk online and in the rumor mills about the Browns interest in Eagles' quarterbacks Donovan McNabb or Kevin Kolb may be a clue to Czarnecki's statement having some truth, but until Holmgren gets behind the podium and in front of the cameras to tell the media what direction he plans to go in with the quarterback position, then all this is is another rumor.

Can you even imagine if Mangini did say that has wasn't a fan of Quinn? It would be all over the news channels and all online channels, but they have not.

Just another journalist writing a story on a team he seemingly doesn't know enough about, especially since he keeps referring to running back Jerome Harrison and James Harrison.

Get your facts right and let this journalist and others here on Bleacher Report handle the Browns from here on out, Czarnecki.
