CHIPZ SAYZ… QUINN-TASTIC?
November 6, 2008 by CHIPZ
CHIPZ sayz, “Quinn-tastic? or Quinn-untastic?” Brady Quinn of the Cleveland Browns was drafted after the 2006 Season from Notre Dame and was sat during the entire 2007 Season and half of the 2008 season. Did Head Coach Romeo Crennel make a bad decision in starting Quarterback Derek Anderson in the 2007 and 2008 Season? In my opinion, it was a very smart move. The future team of the Cleveland Browns was intended to have Brady Quinn as their leader… As their starting quarterback. So why now?
I am a strong believer that starting a rookie quarterback is a very bad move. Quarterback Vince Young of the Tennessee Titans was believed to be the one that would lead his team to the Super Bowl; however, he miserably failed. Many people believe that a scrambling quarterback isn’t suitable in the NFL because everyones too fast and it just simply doesn’t work. Don’t blame it on that. Vince Young was just too young and didn’t know how to utilize his weapons to the highest potential. It’s like giving a 16 year old kid a Ferrari. You just don’t do that! Which is the reason why Quarterback Kerry Collins is having so much success. He has the experience and knows how to use his team.
Quarterback Derek Anderson is a good backup quarterback but is not starting material. Benching Brady Quinn for a season and a half will just mature him and allow him to learn and completely understand the team’s offensive playbook. Head Coach Romeo Crennel probably intended to sit Brady Quinn for the entire 2008 season only to start him in the 2009 season; however, due to the fact that in the NFL, it’s all about instant gratification; therefore, Head Coach Romeo Crennel knew that his job was on the line and had to make a move. Is it too early to start Brady Quinn or are we quite possibly looking at another great quarterback? Only tonight’s game will tell.
If you are a Fantasy Football Owner, I wouldn’t recommend starting Brady Quinn. He has only played one game in the 2007 season where he went 3 for 8 throwing for 45 yards which isn’t solid but it’s not enough to determine if he’ll do well for you as a Fantasy Football Owner. He’s going to have a tough road for him for the rest of the entire season because of their strong opponents they will be playing against for the remaining season. This is where the boys stand out amongst men! AND that’s how the fortune cookie crumbles!
