Brady Quinn Wants Out from the Mistake by the Lake

Brady QuinnIn 2007 the Cleveland Browns traded back into the 1st round of the draft in order to acquire Notre Dame’s Brady Quinn; he was heralded as the QB of the future. The following season Derek Anderson came out of nowhere to have a Pro Bowl season and Quinn was relegated to the bench. Last year Anderson fell apart and so Quinn entered this season as the starter.

After a grand total of 10 quarters this year Quinn was benched again in favor of Anderson. It was just the third game of the season, after going 6 for 8 for 34 yards, and one interception, just like that, he was benched. Anderson came on and threw 3 interceptions and the Browns were crushed to the tune of 34-3. The next week head coach Eric Mangini announced that Derek Anderson would be the starter. How could he not, he was so EFFICIENT!  This past week Anderson went 2 for 17(!) with just 23 yards and his team managed a grand total of 6 points. Awful. He remains the starter.

It is obvious Anderson CAN’T play and while we don’t know about Quinn, there is a CHANCE he can. Clearly though Quinn doesn’t think he’ll ever get that chance. According to a Cleveland newspaper, Brady has put his house up for sale and is about to formally ask the team to trade him.

That’s some good work there Mangini, you’ve been head coach for not even a season and already the entire franchise is in disarray and everyone hates you. That’s awfully impressive.

Eric Mangini Hates Pig Tying

So this is random, from the New York Times:

Jets Coach Eric Mangini is one of the most cloak-and-dagger wielders of the National Football League’s injury list. The phenomenon peaks with one of the league’s most common injury areas — hamstrings — which have been pulled, strained or otherwise aggrieved 1,154 times among the league’s 32 teams since 2006.

Amazingly, the Jets have apparently had only one hamstring injury in Mangini’s three seasons. It belonged to the former receiver Tim Dwight, whose malady was listed less specifically as “thigh” almost every week of the 2006 season except for Week 4, when it snuck in as “hamstring” before scampering back.
