Trent Dilfer Hammers the Browns for Decision to Bench Derek Anderson

ESPN manages to pack their website full of every video known to man, yet they somehow let Trent Dilfer’s verbal assassination of the Cleveland Browns fall through the cracks on Monday. Speaking from the NFL Live set, the one-time Browns QB lashed out on the organization for their decision to bench Derek Anderson and start Brady Quinn at quarterback. Here’s what he offered on one of the late SportsCenters:

I understand the stats and I understand the perception that this might be Derek Anderson’s fault, but it is wrong. This on so many levels shows the dysfunction of the Cleveland Browns. The first thing is you don’t change quarterbacks when you’re a bad football team, you change quarterbacks when you’re a good football team and your quarterback is holding you back. And more importantly, this is an organization that has proven that the public opinion sways their decision-making — and you can’t do that as a National Football League organization. You can’t let the public’s opinion sway you one way or another, especially big decisions like this. I understand that Brady Quinn’s an Ohio kid, I understand that they want to fill the seats, but what’s best for the organization is to stick with Derek Anderson — the guy that went to the Pro Bowl for you last year, one of the leaders in the locker room, and just makes you a better football team in the long run.

Florio at PFT saw an early version of this verbal assault on the 6pm ET SportsCenter in which Dilfer also went off and added even more examples of why it’s a bad decision. I agree with Dilfer’s analysis that Braylon Edwards has let Anderson and the Browns down with his drops, and it hasn’t helped that Kellen Winslow hasn’t made it onto the field too much this year. At the same time, I thought it was a bad decision to give Anderson a contract extension in the first place. I felt all along that Anderson played well at the beginning of the season last year before teams had film on him and that he only padded his stats against the league’s worst defenses. As the season went on, Anderson’s yardage totals and completion percentages dropped tremendously, and his interceptions went up. Translation: he became Derek Anderson again. While I think Brady Quinn will be a good quarterback and I think the Browns should have made the change weeks ago, I’m all for any analyst calling an organization “dysfunctional.”

Brady Quinn Is Not Gay, But Homosexual Websites Sure Do Love Him

Though the man has made it pretty clear that he’s not gay (not that there’s anything wrong with that), Browns quarterback Brady Quinn continually seems to find himself in the middle of conflicts with the homosexual crowd. From the alleged homosexual bashing outside a restaurant, to being named “queer of the year,” Quinn’s had a tough time since his entry to the NFL. It also doesn’t help when you’ve been caught in suggestively homosexual poses (on multiple occasions), not to mention grooving to the Village People at a wedding. But the latest homosexual issue for Brady Quinn is sure to draw plenty of embarrassment across the NFL.

Apparently a topless photo of Quinn (pictured above) has been used lately to promote a gay dating website. TMZ says Quinn’s lawyers have already sent a cease and desist letter to the site telling them to remove all images of Quinn immediately. I wouldn’t be surprised if Brady’s people sued at this point. While Quinn says he’s not gay and we know who his girlfriend is, the photo evidence sure has been mounting lately. Check it all out after the jump.

Closed Captioning+Brady Quinn=Queer

My man Jorge Sedano, host of The Third Shift on Fox Sports Radio, posted this hilarious video on his show blog. It is outstanding. I’ll just let the video do the talking because there is nothing I could possibly add to make this better. Make sure to keep your eye on the left corner and read the closed caption. You may have to watch twice.

Talk about subliminal messages huh?

Brady Quinn Blown Off for a Kiss by Lindy Slinger (Video)

Brady Quinn may have slid to 22nd overall in the NFL draft, but that may not have been his biggest embarrassment of the weekend. Actually, being blown off for a kiss by girlfriend Lindy Slinger may have been worse.

The woman in question is Quinn’s girlfriend, and Miami of Ohio soccer player, Lindy Slinger. She and Brady have been dating for quite some time.

“I’ve been in a long-term relationship now for a good amount of time,” he told Fox Sports Radio. “I really don’t look anywhere else. She’s definitely a girl who I look to be with in the future, here sometime in the next couple years. She’s a great girl — I’ve been fortunate to find her at such a young age.”

Congratulations to the young couple as they appear to have found love at such an early age, but we’d like to see more support from a girlfriend during a difficult time for her loved one.

UPDATE: Brady Quinn is now dating Alicia Sacramone. Maybe the blown off kiss had something to do with it.

Browns in the Brady Quinn Business?

I guess the question kind of answers itself when your options are Charlie Frye and Derek Anderson, but for whatever it’s worth, Browns head coach Romeo Crennel seemed especially impressed with Brady Quinn following the quarterback’s workout at Notre Dame’s pro day.  Crennel told the NFL Network:

The fact that he can make all the throw both right and left.  He’s a polished quarterback, he’s smart.  When you watch him on tape you see that he knows where to go with the ball and will at times throw it away when he has to.  So we think that he’s a good young prospect.

I know all you Ohio natives will be saddened to hear your boy Charlie Frye probably won’t have the starting gig next year, but sounds to me like the Browns and Crennel are pretty high on Brady. 

And you know what?  With the signing of Eric Steinbach, a healthy Braylon Edwards (and possibly Kellen Winslow Jr.) I actually think Quinn could fit in there nicely.  Yes, what I’m saying is that the Browns might be a decent place for him to go and succeed.  But then again, they are cursed, so maybe it’s a bad idea.
