"...My agent has been doing this year after year, having a first-round quarterback and getting them in, and you try to remove yourself from the situation and try and let him get it done.''- Quinn

This is my favorite part. He still thinks that he went in the first round. Can't wait to see this kid get smacked around a bit. Maybe the chip will fall off of his shoulder.

What round did he get drafted in, if it wasn't the first?

My bad. Good catch. It's too early. I read and comprehended as "first pick." I haven't had coffee yet.

My apologies...though I still think he's a bit too big for his britches.

You guys are harsh. The guy has done nothing wrong. Can we place any blame at all on Phil Savage and the Browns? Why did it take this long?

What a big baby. They should sit him on the bench all season. Better yet, if anyone in the Browns front office had any guts, they'd fire the guy. Make an example of this loser.

You guys are crazy that say to get rid of Quinn. I wished the Falcons had picked him especially in the light of all the Vick mess. Rookies hold out all the time to get the money right, and I don't really have a problem with them doing that when it's their first contract. You want to get that right. Now pull an LJ in KC, and you should be on the snide!

Fire Crennel and hire Weis! Watch Cleveland roll then.

How contrite and humble can one really be with a guarantee of $7.75 million and the potential to make as much as $30 million.

I guess my confusion is what exactly was he holding out for???? Isn't this pretty much what the Browns were offering all along???

Quinn Sounds cocky to me, that could be good and bad.I think one of the biggest thing he needs to learn is to keep his mouth shut, maybe that first big hit might do it.

Dear Lord,

Please resurrect Paul Brown.

Thank you.

You guys are harsh. The bottom line is the Browns need a better quarterback than they have had. Fry, Anderson and Dorsey are not the answer, it's been proven no matter how bad they say the line is or was. Brady is the best choice and he needs to start now if the Browns will ever be in contention in the coming years. Go Browns

Let's see here..... a football some blockers some runners and some catchers. If the blockers do their job then all things work for the offense in a KISS theory. Yet it's never that simple in the complex world of "hype". The excitement comes on game day no matter who's playing. If the Browns are winning. Ray Charles at QB would look good if every one else did a good job.

I agree with you wholeheartedly. I LIKE QUINN. I think he will be much better than people expected. I think Anderson is probably the best of the rest. Frye has had starting opportunities and though I like him as a person, he makes poor decisions at critical times. He'll probably improve with time, but I don't think he'll ever be a premiere player. For me, I like these guys and would like to see them eventually be starters somewhere at least. None of them are character issues and are "team" guys. Better than the Michael Vick's of the world.

Quinn has to improve his mechanics though. Seriously.
Set him up with Tom Brady's personal QB coach or set him up with someone who can work with him one-on-one on his technique. Brady HAS the strength. It isn't like he's got to bulk up or add muscle. His "lack of zip" on his throws comes from mechanics.

As for the team as a whole.... Crennel needs to step up. He needs to realize he is not a coordinator anymore and needs to develop a vision for this team and start holding players accountable TO THE TEAM. Take what Chud and Grantham are pushing philosophically and take it up a notch.

The team just doesn't seem to have developed an identity. They need to take PRIDE in something and do it well. On defense.... I see it starting in the LB's and DB's. These guys are damn good ballhawks and I see a LOT of potential. On offense... that's tougher. Hopefully Chud can develop something there.

As for the foolish and irrational Marty lovers!!!!
He can get you to the dance but never win the prize. What a eloquent orator he is.
