With the news yesterday that the Browns are looking to sign Derek "Horse Balls" Anderson to long-term contract, we look ominously to a future that, sadly ... could be Brady Quinn-less.
Quinn could be sitting behind Anderson for a while now, which is fitting, since "sitting" is pretty much all he did all day during the NFL Draft. And it's looking like Quinn's contract holdout this year could be a historically awful decision.
Had Brady Quinn not held out and, instead, shown up at training camp on time, he (by all accounts) would have at least secured the backup role behind incumbent starter Charlie Frye. Because of the money owed to Quinn, the Browns surely would have let Anderson go and put their new golden boy in the backup role. Then, when they traded Frye after week one, Quinn would have been ideally placed to take over as the starter. Instead, he held out and while his agent haggled over escalator clauses and what amounted to about a $500,000 difference, Brady sat in Arizona and missed valuable time in which he could have been learning the offense.
Fortunately ... the man can dance. Kind of.
