It'll be a miracle if they win one of those games. Maybe Oakland but I don't think so. So after they start 0-5 or 1-4, Quinn can come in and play some better games against Miami and in St. Louis, where at least the defense won't kill him. It'll keep him out of the lion's den, at least for a while.


I'm hoping Frye can hold down the job through week 6. That will give our new OL plenty of time to mesh and Quinn would get a full 2 weeks of practice through the bye week to prepare for his first NFL start in St. Louis.

He faces (IMO of course) 2 top 10 Ds (Pittsburgh and Oakland) and 2 top 5 Ds (Baltimore and New England) So coming in after the Bye Week would be fantastic for him as rest of the schedule is considerably easier.

Also, this may be Romeo Crennel's last year as coach. So he must not think Quinn is ready to save his job yet...

If anyone could start in the NFL from Day 1, it would be Quinn. 4 years starting at Notre Dame, two years under Charlie Weis who is one of the best quarterback coaches in the country. I think he's ready mentally and physically to start.

I dont even understand why the Browns would trade for Quinn if they are going to pulling all of this with him.

If you draft a guy as your QB of the future in rd 1 after trading a future 1st pick; you dont give the other 2 QB's the impression they are still going to play. I just dont see the point, maybe its because I really like Quinn, I dont want to see his career over before it started due to antics.

Not really a surprise. He never had a shot to be the week one starter. Frye starts, Anderson is likely to be cut, and Quinn will probably come in later.

I agree that that's the best reason to keep him on the bench, but saying it will be a miracle if they win one of those games is laughable in my opinion. Oakland is very beatable, and they had wins against Pittsburgh and Baltimore locked up until the final 5 minutes or so. The Ravens needed an interception in the end zone by Chris McCalister and a 50 yard field goal to beat the Browns by one point. All 3 division games are at home. They should get 2 wins out of those 5, possibly 3.[/quote]
