Browns QB: Does it matter?

So the Cleveland Browns are turning to Derek Anderson at quarterback (story here ) and sitting down Brady Quinn? I bet Browns fans would like to see Eric Mangini and owner Randy Lerner sit down ... together on a plane out of town.

The Browns are horrible and sitting Quinn down for a guy who threw three interceptions last week makes no sense. It doesn't matter if Otto Graham walked in now in his prime, the Browns would still stink.Why? There are no weapons for the quarterback. Who do they throw to? Who runs it? A slow-to-the-hole Jamal Lewis? Jerome Harrison? Or rookie James Davis. No passing game means no running game either.

It's not just the quarterback. I always say a franchise passer can cure your ills. But not here. We haven't seen either of these passers look like one of those, but even if they were there are still too many issues.

It starts with Mangini. He's too uptight. He plays the mind games that players hate.

At least he made this decision known on Wednesday this time, instead of playing that stupid game he played in Week 1 where he thought he was being smart not letting his decision out for competititve reasons.

Again, does it matter?

Bring back Bernie Kosar or Brian Sipe in their primes. The Browns wouldn't be good with them either. This team isn't good. The offense is awful.

How's that decision to bring in Mangini, Lerner? Just like many thought it would be.

Not good.

Brady Quinn sucks

Hey, Pete Quinn (Prisco), not so supportive of your boy anymore, are you??

He stinks, and you thought he was gona be the next joe montanna. If a sports writer get an one day prison sentence for each wrong statment or suggestions that he makes, You'd probably be in jail for 10 years just for being how great you made Brady Quinn sound before he even had a Pro football regualar season snap.

That INT Quinn threw is horrible, even a 5 year old can make that read and go else where, The CB was just sitting on that route, he didnt even move one step before He jumped the route, and Quinn wasnt even pressured...

I bet those rookies QBs cant feel all that good when Prisco started writting up all the praise about them.

Browns QB: Does it matter?

The browns play a 3-4 defense. They have 2 inside linebackers. Anyway, the point was look at all the good players they passed on.

Browns QB: Does it matter?


there is no point in choosing 2 middle linebackers to use as comparison when refering to the browns because middle linebacker is one of the few positions that the browns arent too bad at, dqwell jackson already has 19 solo tackles and is projected for over a hundred this season, granted the players around him suck and are probably too slow to join in on the tackle

Browns QB: Does it matter?

Was this phoned in to a transcriptionist?  It looks like a telegram, not a news article.
It's a blog post not a column and you're right.  He's right.  There's a reason why their uniform color matches dog droppings.

Browns QB: Does it matter?

The Browns are a completely worthless franchise. They have wasted every playeer draft since they returned in 1999. They could have had both James Laurenitis and Ray Maualuga in the draft this year. Both are good enough to start for their respective teams. There are countless others that are contributing for their teams they also could have drafted. The talent level on the Browns is sad. The right side of the line is pathetic and the defensive back seven is also. they keep trying to be a power running team without the personnel to do so. Braylon Edwards couldn't catch a cold. Randy Lerner needs to find a true football executive, like Tuna, and turn the franchise over to him. It will be a long time, if ever, before this franchise has any success. I am afraid as long as Lerner owns them the Browns will flounder. Very sad for a once proud franchise. I will not watch this crap any longer.

Browns QB: Does it matter?

I think they sould start Josh Cribbs at QB.  Put Harrison and Davis in the backfield with him and run the triple option.  At least they be a more complicated offense than the division 2 crap they have been running.  Hey, and it would give the D a chance to rest if they use some play clock.

i love the browns but you are such a homer it's crazy. we are the second worst franchise in the league over the last 20 years. thank God for the Lions. and mangini isn't helping.

prisco won't be eating those words. he is dead on. and if they do win, it's not like they suddenly become a good team. it will be a case of cincy looking ahead. (how sad is that?)

Browns QB: Does it matter?

There is no talent on the team. When your punter and your kicker are the team MVP's, there is something wrong. Look at the draft...all the players the Browns didn't take that are playing for other teams! We draft 2 receivers in the 2nd round and they rarely see the field? Josh Cribbs is not a #2 receover. if anything, he should be in the slot to go against linebackers. The O-Line is bad, the defense is bad. For a proud franchise this is disgraceful.

Thank goodness hockey starts this weekend. Go Jackets!
