Despite back-to-back shaky performances by quarterback Brady Quinn and an offense that’s tumbled to last in the NFL, Browns coach Eric Mangini said he plans to stick with Quinn.
“Yes, that’s exactly right,” Mangini said Monday during his post-Denver press conference. “I thought there were times that he made some really good decisions,” said Mangini. “Then there were some plays where I felt like he could’ve done a better job with the read and he knows that.”
Mangini stressed that the offensive woes — including one garbage-time TD in eight quarters — are not all Quinn’s fault.
Keep in mind that if Brady Quinn is pulled from his starting job at any point this year, his tenure would be essentially finished in the city of Cleveland. Another quarterback, surrounded by a garbage offense, relieved of his duties. It would also signal another year of rebuild assuming that Derek Anderson continues to be Derek Anderson circa any year aside from 2007.
We’ve had quite the discussion this morning regarding the offense, Mangini and Quinn. I can’t wait to see what the discussion looks like at this point next week following the trip to Baltimore.
So…How’s Sam Bradford’s shoulder?
