I dont think Quinn could be any more out of touch. Thomas and Wright have the easiest paths to start as rookies of any players in the NFL, and realizing that, they got their butts into camp. They are smart players, and will be rewarded with immediate playing time. Quinn could have been in the thick of the QB race, but it's too late now.

Perception is often reality, Brady. Unfortunately for you, the perception out there is becoming more negative by the day. Nevermind the fans, we're talking teammates, coaches, and the front office.

I completely agree Josh, although I don't think Quinn would have started the season opener regardless. Crennel just has this thing against playing rookies.....he goes overboard with it often, but that's his style.

Had Quinn gotten his ass into camp on time though, he might have had a chance to start by mid-season.....now, I'd say it'll only be a possibility in the final weeks of the season (if at all).

Brady Quinn can sit the entire season as far as I'm concerned. He can't throw deep balls,he has and has had accuracy problems. The Browns don't need him.

Here's my DUMB question....
If Quinn holds out all season... and re-enters next year's NFL draft (as Czarnecki of FoxSports suggests possible).....
What happens to the 1st round pick that we used to get him?
I'm under the impression that we don't get it back.

All of this is really ticking me off. Quinn has so far just acted like a jerk.... signing autographs for a team he isn't even signed with for $75....
Beginning to think the team made a mistake.=\

Sit, Brady, sit! Play, Charlie, play! Good Dawgs!

Didn't need Brady in the first place. Let his greedy Agent support his greedy butt.

Much more excited about the potential of Thomas and Wright, the possible return of LeCharles Bentley and the growing maturity of K2.

Hate to tell you, but unless Charlie gets MUCH better with his decision making, he is not going to be the long term QB. Take a look at some of K.C. Joyner's stuff from ESPN.com . Frye didn't just throw interceptions.... he threw them at BAD TIMES when those throws were the most critical.

Agree with the greed issue though. Just kinda sad that Quinn has chosen this route.

Mike - I'm thinking that Charlie's decision making will improve exponentially when he is not being flushed from the pocket and forced to run for his life.

Brady should pop down to Canton this week - since he's not otherwise engaged - and check out the HOF enshrinement ceremonies. He could learn a valuable lesson from the REAL professionals who EARNED their places in the top ranks of the NFL from back in the day when the it was "Play me, Coach!" rather than "Pay me, Coach!"

If Brady Pretty Boy Quinn could actually play, he would sign for what a 22nd pick gets, and come in and compete for a job.

But Pretty Boy knows he will be a bust in the NFL. That is why he is holding out. He knows that since he will suck, this is his one chance for a big pay day. Way to go Savage! Good job wasting a first and second round pick for an ungrateful bust!

You know... honestly... I HOPE the improved line brings out the best in Charlie. At this point... I want to see this team swing around.

As for Quinn... he's apparently doing his own series of two-a-days in Arizona with Athletic Performance. At leats he's still working out and busting his butt trying to get ready.

I agree with that sentiment though. ALL of these kids have a LOT to learn. I still seriously believe that rookie pay should be capped. There definitely needs to be SOMETHING DONE about the payscale in the NFL. That would level the playing field and create parity better than anything else this league has done so far. It kills teams when they keep drafting in the top 5 or so and keep having to sign kids to megabuck deals. Especially when so many of them are busts! Seriously... looking just now at the first round draft picks since 1990 across the WHOLE LEAGUE.... 56% panned out to be much of anything (this includes people like William Green, David Carr, Pat Ramsey...).

Rookie payscales are needed. All rookies set to payscale for first 2 years. Base it off of the league average for each position. Picks 1-5 get 140%.... 6-15 get 130%..... 16-25 120%.... 26-35 100%.... 36-45 get 95%..... 46-60 get 90%.... 61-100 get 80%...... or something that makes sense!
A kid fresh outta college and unproven should NOT get in the top 10% of their position from the get go! It doesn't work like that ANYWHERE ELSE. Name for me a job where ANYONE pays the pasty-faced new kid like they are in the top 10% of the company!

The NFL needs to get real before the pay gets more out of control.

Oh yeah, and I hope a bunch of angry Crimson Tide fans beat Nick "The Fraud" Saban senseless after he flees from Alabama after having suckered them in.

This guys a stiff in the making - never won a big game in college, has no arm, and apparently is a bit slow. He was a late first rounder and late first round money he deserves. Too bad the Browns flushed next year's top 5 pick down the drain on this guy.

Hey Browns Fans,Don't let this asshole quinn upset you the least.With the O-line we have put together this year,Frye or Anderson will deliver Big Time.With Jamal Lewis and Harrison running through Holes you can drive a tank through we don't need quinn (At all)infact,Trade him immeditately Savage,get someone who will be glad to be in cleveland,sign his contract worthy of his talent.With the talent the browns have this year,we will be the contenders we were in the 80's

On another QB note, I hope Couch makes the team with the Jag's becomes a top QB and destroys the team who ended his career, because the OL sucked.
Aren't you a Browns fan?(I assume by your name "Kent DAWG" that you are.) Why would you ever want to see Tim Couch defeat us? I can understand if you disagree with a decision made by the organization, but I don't understand crossing the line to the point where you actually root against your team for it.

John Beck and Kevin Kolb? Seriously? Can you say Ken O'brien and Tony Eason? LOL, bring em on!

Truth is, Quinn could be a very good player eventually, I just wish he had some brains when it comes to business. I'm sure Tom Brady didnt strong arm the Pats for his first contract because he thought he should go higher. In fact, I'm willing to bet he signed and got his arse into camp as fast as he could. I think it turned out ok.

GET YOUR NOSE IN THE PLAYBOOK, 10.
