Bye Bye Brady

After just 3 seasons the Cleveland Browns have moved on from the Brady Quinn era. As a player coming out of college, Quinn was supposed to be the quarterback to bring the Browns back into the playoffs. It didn’t go that way.

Quinn was traded to the Denver Broncos for a seldom used fullback (Peyton Hillis), and 2 draft picks (a 6th rounder in 2011 and conditional one in 2012). For a player who was touted as the franchise quarterback, this is a small package.

In Denver Quinn is not automatically a starter. He will be going up against Kyle Orton as the team’s starter. Orton, who took over the job last year, played pretty well in starting all 16 games for the Broncos. He led Denver to a 6-2 record to start the season, then went 2-6 the rest of the way. This leaves the Broncos and Quinn looking for the same thing: consistency.

In his short time with Cleveland, Brady had to learn several systems due to the rotating door on the coaches’ office. Now he can start anew with head coach Josh McDaniels who knows how to groom a quarterback as he did in New England with Tom Brady and Matt Cassel.

Mike Holmgren is making good on his promise to change things in Cleveland. Since becoming the Browns GM he has moved the two former starting quarterbacks (Quinn, and Derek Anderson) and will be moving forward with his newest additions, former Panther QB Jake Delhomme and Seneca Wallace, whom Holmgren coached in Seattle.

The Browns will head into this season with questions surrounding their two new QB’s as well as a severe lack in offensive weapons. Holmgren did a good job putting a quality team together in Seattle, but he didn’t have to deal with a mess like the Browns. It’s going to be a wait and see game, but things still don’t bode well.

As for Quinn, this will hopefully breathe new life into his career. He will be able to learn in a new, more stable environment and possibly reach that potential everyone thought he had. Either that, or he’ll end up as the latest in a long list of quarterback busts.
