Prized second-year quarterback Brady Quinn did something that Derek Anderson didn’t do enough of this season — he won. Quinn might not have been Phil Simms in Super Bowl XXI, but he did enough to lead Cleveland to a win at Buffalo on Monday night.
Cleveland Plain Dealer columnist Terry Pluto says that the most impressive thing about Quinn was his poise.
- Who knows if Brady Quinn will develop into a Pro Bowl quarterback, but aren’t you impressed by his poise? Don’t you want to see more of him? Aren’t you glad that at least Quinn gives you a reason to watch the last six games of this otherwise discouraging Browns season? MORE
Dennis Manoloff notes that Braylon Edwards also had a big game. Something that has been missing this season.
And don’t forget about the the biggest hero of the night, kicker Phil Dawson, according to Beacon Journal columnist Patrick McManamon.
- He’s the quietest player on the team, and he has been with the Browns longer than any other. He has seen all kinds of defeats, and he has been through all kinds of trials and tribulations along with his team. But Monday night in a game that went back and forth and up and down and all around, Phil Dawson gave the Browns a badly needed win in Ralph Wilson Stadium. MORE
