Cleveland Browns Jerseys

Is it to late for D.A. for to push for the Starting Quarterback position in 2010?

With Quinn being put on IR today, I asked myself is it to late for D.A. to make a case for himself to be the starting Quarterback in Cleveland next season. D.A. had a miserable 09 season before getting pulled for Brady Quinn. D.A. might have worn out his welcome here in Cleveland with his inability to stay consistant on a week to week basis.

With that comes days were D.A. looks like a top five Quarterback in the NFL and makes me wonder what if he gets it one day. Remember that sunny fall day at the Stadium where D.A. looked like a future hall of famer torching the Bengal defense for 51 points. How about that Monday night game where D.A. was able to lead the Browns past the undefeated SuperBowl Champion New York Giants.

D.A. threw for 29 touchdowns in 2007, and only 19 interceptions, he led the Browns to 10 wins and only lost 5 times. I know it is hard to forgive him for that Bengals game, but was it really his fault throwing the football in 30 mph winds. I am not saying D.A. is the answer at Quarteback at all, personally I don’t think that the guy who is going to lead the Browns to the Super Bowl is in Cleveland yet. ( I agree with J.Paul Norton that the Browns need to bring in a quarterback through free agency.)

What if D.A. is good D.A. this weekend and next weekend throwing for 400 yards and a couple TD’s and looks like good D.A. for the final two games. What did Brady Quinn show you that makes you believe that he puts the Browns in a better position to win then D.A.?

    DA has never looked good. Even in 07 his numbers weren’t that good. Only 19 interceptions? That was the 2nd highest total in the entire NFL that year. His inability to hit the short dump offs and short slants was terrible. He barely completes 50% of his passes. His terrible 08 and 09 seasons should tell any coach, that he’s not the one.
    Not saying BQ is the man. Thats for sure. He can’t throw more than 20 yards. He is a sideline to sideline QB. And he also misses alot of open receivers.
    I’ll admit that DA did have a few good games, but to ever think that he won’t revert back to his norm is so far out there. You even stated above that he was pulled because of his inability to stay consistent. He has never been consistent.
    I wouldn’t even keep DA as a backup. I would put him out there and see what you can get for him in trade value. I suggested trading him right after the 07 season. Add Quinn to the pot if it will get us a top notch QB and then bring in a decent backup.
    I saw where someone was saying that Daboll had a great game calling plays. The reason we ran the ball so much is because they can’t trust Quinn throwing the ball. Daboll is Mangini’s friend. He did not have 1 single game experience as Offensive Coordinator prior to this year. I have been ranting the past 3 years about getting Harrison in the game more. In 07 he averaged 6.2 yards per carry and in 08 it was 7.2. How can you keep a running back out of the mix with those stats? Any coach who sits Harrison with those stats should be put up in front of a firing squad. Or spare his life and let him be a towel or water boy.
    Draft a QB who can scramble. Cleveland has never had a good running QB. Just think how much that would open up the running game.

    I heard one of the talking heads this morning saying they should try cribbs at qb….why not. I’d love to see him in the backfield with another back at least part of the time, and why not some snaps right to him? His last pass looked a LOT better than the earlier attempts. He looked at least as good as BQ on that one try. But BQ is getting lots of acclaims for running the no huddle. His passing will improve. HOlmy says that part of their game usually comes around after about 48 games, and that’s with tutorage. He’s had what, 11. Let’s see some more. and a closer look on replay of his injury happening, that would have happened to anyone the way he was striding and just as about to pick up that foot it got slammed on from behind.
