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.

It’s a great way to scratch your fantasy itch early, and to shake off some rust and […]

  • The LeSean McCoy Trade, RB Declines, and Chip Kelly March 4, 2015
    If you’re a 24/7/365 football nut, chances are you’ve already digested just about all you can about yesterday’s blockbuster LeSean McCoy/Kiko Alonso trade between the Eagles and Bills. I’ve gone on record on Twitter saying I don’t like the deal for Buffalo – McCoy is an eight-figure back coming off a down year, still a […]
