I don't get it the QB is a product of the team... I do not see him replacing St. Claire after he allowed what three sacks, he needs to redirect his focus.

First of all it doesn't matter who the QB is because we have no WR's that are a threat to get open besides Edwards who can't catch the ball anyway. Second we know what we have in Anderson. Slow, unable to throw a touch pass, and most important loves to throw picks. Give Quinn the snaps he needs to learn and improve. There is no upside to Anderson there is still an upside to Quinn. If they feel they need to make a change fire the offensive coordinator he is terrible.

We brought Mangini in for this? Whoever is our QB KEEP THEM IN ALL SEASON SO THEY CAN LEARN!!!! This team is so missed up it will take YEARS to make it a contender. The Drafts choises have been worthless at best and we are still the joke of the AFC. Come on Browns and get it together.

Who cares who the QB is. Cincinnati is going to grind the Browns into a fine powder on Sunday. I have lost all faith in the Browns and am sick and tired of always saying "maybe next year". Cleveland fans deserve better than this.

Mangini should not have been hired. He is a horrible coach, at least the Jets recognized it. The players don't seem to want to play for him, after all I wouldn't. After this Sunday we will see that Brady Quinn is not the problem.

I thought Mangini said he would not flip-flop his decisions on our quarterback. Quinn needs many more games to learn the NFL better. How can the rest of the players and fans trust Mangini? After being a die-hard fan for 32 years, I've had it with the Browns. Go Bengals...or anybody else.

We need to stick with either one and go with it. Let them learn and try and figure stuff out. Derek Anderson moved the ball much better than Quinn....Unfortunately it was the other team carrying the ball!

You cannot depend on the quarterback to be the only position you work on...start with that...but he is not the only thing wrong with the team. They all need to work together as a team...and until they do that, it is not going to help. Sad, but true.

Well, I just don't get it. Joe Flacco, Matt Ryan even Matt Stafford all rookies played until they got it, but the Browns draft a quarterback and sit him on the bench, give him limited reps in practice, limited game time, destroy his confidence and then say he can't play. Yet we don't draft a running back who can balance the passing game. Do we draft Tim Tebow next year to sit a couple years or will he run back punts? Just trade Brady to Tampa or someone who needs a quarterback and get a running back please.

don't usually watch football and don't know much about it but aren't you suppose to at least try and tackle the guy who has the ball especially if he is on the other team and running straight at you and you have a clear path to do so. This guy on the Browns side just stuck his arm out like he was waving him on or something like that was going to stop him. I couldn't believe it I had to turn back the tivo to see it again and yeap thats what I saw. If I went to work and worked like the Browns played this past Sunday I would be fired!!. I say fire'em all and start fresh. The quarter back, coach and owner are not the only problems wrong with this team. They all are acting like a bunch of overgrown and well over paid babies!! but we keep watching and hoping...

Anderson has the better chance. Quinn is an arogant demanding punk who can't throw past 20 yards- same guy who demanded big bucks before proving himself- same guy that team after team passed up during the draft- but Cleveland was the smart one here to give up first round pics?!? Should've learned then! Quinn thinks he's owed something. Get over yourself! At least with Anderson (a pro-bowl QB) we have a better shot. Quinn hasn't won a big game- not even in college. He's all hype and the only reason the Browns keep pushing him out there is because of the Cleveland fans drooling over a looser! Keep Anderson out there and build the team around him already!

The Cleveland Browns. A 'team' in constant re-building status.
1- Get a front line. Average players behind a good front line can perform above their ability level. The secondary needs speed. Quit spending money on positions that can't perform without basic positions working well.
2- If I was a college player in the draft, I would sit out the year rather than sign with the Browns.

OMG So i guess throwing three interceptions last week qualifies you as a starter??? what is wrong with this picture?? Give the kid a chance !!! Mangini in my oppinon is no better than Romeo!!!!!! I have been a loyal Browns fan for 30 years I even converted my husband when we got married 26 yrs ago from being a pittsburg fan!! maybe that was a mistake..I am DONE with the Browns!!!!!!!!!! Quinn get out of Cleveland before they ruin you like every other QB we have had!!

Flacco didn't win the job, he was given it by default. Had Troy Smith not gone down, he'd have been riding the pine. With that said there is a new trend happening in the NFL after what Flacco and Ryan did do and what Sanchez is doing right now fopr the Jets. They are going to play these high priced top 10 picks immediately because if the rest of the team is decent, they have a good shot of learing NOW and still creating wins. Oldschool was letting them rot on the sidelines for 2 years and then take another 2 to develop. That's just too much time to waste IMHO. These recent QB's have proven it's an outdated process.

I am not even a Browns fan but I have to agree with you. Hell, DA made the freakin Pro Bowl 2 years ago, why they even drafted Quinn iks beyond me.
