Even if it meant he got traded, it would have been good for him to see how a playoff team operates.The reality is, I liked Anderson when he was playing great In fact, I voted for him to make the Pro Bowl. I regretted that vote the next day.Anderson went intoCincinnati and threw four interceptions and cost the Browns a trip to the playoffs. I immediately began disliking him.His poor performance planted a seed of doubt in the organization and the fans. His performance in the Pro Bowl created even more doubt.Since that time, Quinn's career has been held hostage by this organization.Sure he has had minimal opportunity to play, but the coaches looked for any reason to get him out and Anderson back in.Yes, Quinn struggled against the Vikings and Broncos Tom Brady and Tony Romo also struggled against the Broncos The Vikings have been one of the top defenses in the league. Those two teams' are a combined 12-1.For whatever reason, Mangini thinks that Anderson gives them a better chance to win, despite lesser stats against lesser defenses That is fine with me at this point. I don't want Quinn's career taking any more of a hit because he is playing on this team.I realize that Quinn's best value to the Browns is as trade-bait.
However, for the Browns to get a fair trade for him, other teams must see that there is something to trade for. Although I don't want to see Quinn play in this situation, I would like him to play in the last three games.Why the last three games Because they're against the Chiefs, Raiders, and Jaguars.I figure it is the fairest way to see what he can do as a quarterback in this league. Since the Browns stink and those three teams stink, the talent level will be about even. Then we will see what Quinn can do on an even playing field.In those games, which is really a three game audition for another team, the Browns must allow Brady Quinn to be Brady Quinn What I mean is, call rollouts and bootlegs Also, let Quinn call the plays at the line of scrimmage He is at his best in the no-huddle. ) Lieutenant General Robert Baden-Powell of the British Army is recognized as the main protagonist of the Scouting movement for boys. Having been the author of several books on scouting, Lord Baden-Powell is responsible for teaching men and boys to survive and prosper in the wilderness.The use of trail signs to designate direction and warn of dangers is widely attributed to Baden-Powell. In fact, on his tombstone is carved the most used of these signs, a circle with a dot in the middle signifying "I have gone home."He was much too young to be taken, and yet to be taken so tragically, but Jasper Howard has gone home. A football stadium scrawls a roughly-hewn circle, with the field's logo as the dot. From his new perch and from within their souls, Jasper witnessed a stirring display of football by his Connecticut teammates as they kept a faster and more talented West Virginia team on the ropes all afternoon. It took a monumental effort by the Mountaineers to win, but win they did.The game was the kind that left a lump in the throats of football players, now and then, young and old, here and elsewhere. And it was the kind of game that even I, a witness of many West Virginia gridiron skirmishes, would have not minded had the Mounties lost.Although too many adult fans ignored or perhaps forgot the purpose of the day, the students showed nothing but class. The purported burners of sofas and throwers of garbage cans and talkers of trash put aside their agendas and let the spirit of Jasper Howard and his Huskies carry them.I am proud of the WVU students, proud to be an alumnus, and especially proud to be one of the scribes who recorded their moment. Maybe, just maybe, the edge will be taken off by the memories of when the student section broke out into their Jasper Howard chant. I do know that when I catch wind of the next burning couch, I'll remember that when we all needed it, the students delivered..
