Former Browns QB and now ESPN anaylst Trent Dilfer is having a field day with the Browns decision to take the starting job away from Derek Anderson. Appearing on talk shows as well as on ESPN after the move was made to make the switch to Brady Quinn, Dilfer gave the following quotes about the move.
“Public opinion has made this decision for the Browns,” said Dilfer. “I have spoken to coaches who have said, ‘This is not Derek Anderson’s fault.’ In fact, at times he’s played better than his statistics have showed. This is a function of the defense not getting off the football field; Braylon Edwards, a superstar receiver who’s supposed to make all the plays to make you better, having 14 drops at least. It’s about their playmakers, Kellen Winslow, not being there, not being dependable. It’s about people not being at their best and Derek Anderson burdening the responsibility for this.
“This is an organization that I played for for a year and I saw very closely that the organization itself is highly dysfuctional and cannot make decisions that are good for the long-term growth of the organization.”
Dilfer lost his starting job to Charlie Frye, who then flamed out last season after one game and got traded to the Seahawks.
