A Frankenstein of Browns Quarterbacks

Quarterback list Browns jersey

Writers have spilt gallons of ink writing about the Cleveland Browns and their abundance of quarterbacks since 1999. Statistically if you are reading this then you probably started a game under center for the Browns in the past 16 years. Despite an exhaustive and thorough vetting process the club has failed to identify a franchise

Derek Anderson could start against the Browns

Derek-Anderson-Pro-Bowl

I never root for injuries in the NFL, but they are one thing in the game you can certainly bet on. You don’t tend to bet on them occurring via car crashes though, and that’s what happened to Cam Newton this week. It was an ugly crash and the result was a couple of fractures

Mike Pettine thankfully brushes off Manziel laughter talk

Was Manziel laughing at this bill?

I was hoping I wouldn’t have to discuss this because it isn’t even remotely worthy of being a “storyline” from the Browns’ 29-28 victory over the Tennessee Titans. But now that Mike Pettine commented on it and did so in such a dismissive way, it has taken what was laughable (get it?) and made it

Colt McCoy signs with the Washington Redskins

Colt McCoy wasn’t out of work long. The former Browns quarterback has never been able to find tons of success in the NFL, but the backup QB game isn’t so bad. Brandon Weeden, Jason Campbell, Derek Anderson, Colt McCoy? All of them have been able to find rosters at least for this year’s training camp.

Is Derek Anderson joining the Browns to teach or start?

“Are you kidding me?” my wife said to me as we were driving to my parents’ house on Saturday afternoon when I informed her of the Derek Anderson back to Cleveland rumors. My wife (as many of you already know) isn’t a Browns fan. Sometimes I run Browns things by her just to take the

Derek Anderson claims he is heading back to Browns per report

What most of Cleveland had hoped was a cruel speculation-based rumor appears to be true: Derek Anderson says that he will be returning to Cleveland to rejoin the man who got him to the Pro Bowl in 2007, Rob Chudzinski. Per Jeff Schudel of the News-Herald, Anderson was a back-up to Carolina’s Cam Newton and

Brady Quinn replaces “booed,” injured QB in KC

Derek Anderson was once booed in a game against the Colts. Brady Quinn was already hurt in a previous game so D.A. was replaced by Ken Dorsey, but the QB battle with Brady Quinn had an awful lot to do with the reaction to Derek Anderson. Now, the former Notre Dame QB (with the boyish

Colt McCoy Through the Lens of Brady Quinn

(Eric Mull USPRESSWIRE)

Browns fans are understandably terrified of a QB controversy. The days of Derek Anderson and Brady Quinn (not to mention Charlie Frye) will do that to you. I’ve already been on record that I think it is a possibility that Colt McCoy might beat out Brandon Weeden, at least initially, because of his experience in

Isn’t It Nice Not To Be Talking About a QB “Controversy”?

Couch or Holcomb. Anderson or Quinn. Frye or Dilfer. Delhomme or McCoy. Such was the life of the Browns fan during pre-seasons past. Who would step  up and be the quarterback? Which of the crappy options would be “best”? Who was keeping the seat warm for whom? I’m not here to say Colt McCoy is

Derek Anderson Still Doesn’t Think It’s Funny on Twitter

Derek Anderson’s rant is forever captured in the Internet consciousness.  If you forgot what Derek Anderson’s meltdown was all about, well here it is… again… Apparently, DA is ready to move on and doesn’t think anything is as funny as what he was laughing about on the sidelines on Monday Night Football.  And of course,

Well, if there was ever a question in Browns minds, there isn’t anymore.  As of yesterday, Colt McCoy has been named the starter for the Browns in the first opportunity since all quarterbacks regained their health.

Not the Best Afternoon for Derek Anderson and Brady Quinn

While the Cleveland Browns won their first game of the season via the shoulders (and triceps) of one Peyton Hillis and the arm of Seneca Wallace, things were not quite as good for two guys that would have been factoring into this equation one year ago. Former Browns quarterbacks Derek Anderson and Brady Quinn had

This week as the 0-2 Browns head to Baltimore, I thought it might be time for some good karma.  Granted, karma has little to do with the Browns’ 0-2 start as we have pretty easily been able to figure out exactly where the Browns have gone wrong with their self-inflicted wounds in second halves.  It

Browns Can Use Both Quarterbacks Without Controversy

The relationship between the Browns and their quarterbacks is so well-documented that I can hear people groan even before I think about typing the name Brady Quinn.  Be that as it may, I can’t help but wonder why, exactly, we didn’t see Seneca Wallace play quarterback yesterday for the Browns yesterday.  I am not even

Cardinals cut Leinart, clear way for Derek Anderson to start

Coming off a season with the Browns where he threw for three touchdowns, was picked off ten times, and tallied a year-end passer rating of 42.1, why shouldn’t Derek Anderson be the week one starter for the Cards?  He has a cannon for an arm you know.  But more than any physical things Derek Anderson brings
