QB Battle Rages in Hopeless Cleveland

November 11th, 2009 by Leave a comment Go to comments

There are few teams if any in the NFL betting lines that can rival Cleveland in terms of dysfunction. And that’s quite a statement if consider the likes of the Raiders, Bucs, Lions, etc. But the Browns have plumbed the depths of desperation this year and things will only get worse with news that the starting QB job is once again up for grabs.

The latest word out of Cleveland has Brady Quinn once again becoming the starting QB for this weekend’s NFL betting lines competition and Derek Anderson once again relegated to the back-up role.

It’s hard to argue with the logic here by coach Mangini but then again the team should never have been in this position in the first place, especially not in the ninth week of the NFL lines season. And it will be Mangini’s decision to make since the team no longer has a GM, yet another sign of the turmoil surrounding this team.

In all fairness to Mangini his options are very limited. Both of these QBs are terrible, or at least their stats have been terrible with this team so far in the 2009 NFL betting odds. Mangini’s options are bad and worse and it appears he’ll be going with ‘bad’.

Since taking over the starting role after the first month of the season Anderson has been the worst QB in the NFL betting lines (36.2 passer rating). But Quinn is hardly the answer since before giving up the starting spot he was the worst QB in the NFL with a 62.1 passer rating. Both performed incredibly poorly the only difference is Anderson has a win.

Regardless of who plays QB, the Browns will be lucky to win three games this year.
