Quinn the Odds On Favorite to be the Opening Day Starter

Like it or not, the PD reports today that Brady Quinn is on tap to be the Browns starting QB come opening day vs the Vikings:

The Browns have had six different opening-game quarterbacks in 10 years. Brady Quinn is the odds-on favorite to make it seven in 11 years. Quinn made his first NFL start in Game 9 last season. He broke an index finger in Game 10 and worsened it by playing in Game 11. The injury gave Derek Anderson an opportunity to reclaim his starting job, but he sprained his left knee in Game 12 and was done for the rest of the year.

    I’m glad to hear this. Give him this year and then make an honest comparison. If he lights it up we can still trade DA in the season; if for some reason he does not, we can decide to do what with who based on seeing them both over a period of games to see the learning curve, and go from there.

    Is this news? The PD could have printed this exact same story months ago…

    I don’t think that there’s any way to truly have a comparison that works. We’ve seen that DA can be great over the first 3/4 of a season with an All-Pro TE and 2 very good WRs (1 was an All-Pro WR). Let’s not forget about the o-line that wasn’t offensive for 1 year… The guy at QB has to make accurate reads and throws (prior to landing on his rear), and the WRs HAVE to catch de ball. If any one of those things goes bad… you have another bad season.

    This is as it should be. We burned a 1 to get this guy. So, why should he sit? DA hasn’t exactly lit up the field of late; quite the opposite. Let’s see what he can do. It’s not like this team is going anywhere anytime soon.
