Quinn Fails to Throw Touchdown Passes From His Knees


Proving many talent scouts, draft pundits, General Managers, and assorted asshats correct, Brady Quinn saw his first action as an NFL quarterback tonight, and failed to throw any 80-yard passes from his knees. Further vindicating his critics, who question his throwing accuracy, Quinn also did not complete 100% of his passes, completing only 13 of 20 passes (including three spikes to stop the clock) for 155 yards and two touchdowns. And of course, Quinn once again proved that he cannot single-handedly "win the big game" as he failed to bring the Browns all the way back from the 23-7 deficit they faced when he entered the game with only 9:20 remaining in the game - leaving Browns fans bitterly disappointed by a 23-20 home loss to the Detroit Lions.

As of this post OC Domer is still waiting to get JaMarcus Russell's final statistics from his undoubtedly spectacular game as quarterback of the Oakland Raiders.

Hopefully Brady will play better once he is named as the Browns' starting quarterback two weeks from now.

[ADDED 8/19: The Associated Press article I link to in this post says that BQ had three clock-stopping spikes. I have seen other reports (and read at some message boards) that there were actually four spikes. That'll teach me to rely on the mainstream media for my stats.]

[ALSO ADDED 8/19: The NFL Network is saying they are going to air the full Browns v. Lions game tonight at 8:00 pdt (that's 11:00 edt). Great news for the majority of us who couldn't watch the game last night.]

No, no, no...there were NO bitter fans in Cleveland Saturday night. At the end of the game, everyone chanted, "Brady, Brady, Brady..." as we were all leaving. It was truly electrifying watching Brady on the field. He is definitely our future. GO BROWNS!!!! GO BRADY!!!

Michelle -

Thanks for stopping by! So great that you could be at the game. I was totally kidding about the bitter fans, along with everything else. Browns fans had to be pumped, and the Cleveland coaches are going to have a hard time keeping BQ off the field.

I have to say how I was so dissapointed in just two TD's in nine minutes. I thought Quinn would be better then that. It sorts shook my faith in his ability. Ahahahahah
