Browns need to take a QB

Not exactly a sexy topic here in Super Bowl week and only my second of this blog, but what the hell..

There’s a report out there that the Lions will NOT take a QB with the #2 pick of the draft, and that Mike Martz pretty much disclosed that fact this week, which could hurt thier leverage if they’re looking to move down in the draft. If that’s the case, then barring a trade down by Detroit, the Browns will have a chance to draft Brady Quinn (if Jemarcus Russell is not picked by Oakland it’s 100% the Browns draft him).  

I could care less about how Quinn finished his career at Notre Dame on a down note. Peyton Manning didn’t exactly come through in the clutch in college, either, and he’s one of the best of all time and will soon be a Super Bowl champion.

  • The Prince Connection: Rodgers and Nelson July 7, 2014
    If you follow along over at my Twitter account @FG_Dolan (shameless plug), you’ve probably noticed my undying love for Jordy Nelson, and the fact that I’d happily welcome him onto any of my fantasy teams this year. First of all, he’s madly productive as is: he hauled in 85/1314/8 last year and averaged 16.5 FPG in a PPR league. That was good enough to rank h […]
