Browns quarterback Brady Quinn completed just 6 of 19 passes for 90 yards (48.1 rating) in Thursday's 13-6 victory over visiting Pittsburgh.
Coach Eric Mangini didn't give Quinn a pass for the performance, despite winds gusting from 25-48 mph.
''The wind definitely played a part in it,'' Mangini said. ''You are looking for accuracy. I think there were some throws that we could have been more accurate with. I thought some guys made some pretty nice catches as well.
''I am always looking for mechanics, regardless of the weather. I thought Brady did a nice job with that throughout the course of the night. The wind does play a factor in some of those throws and you have to take that into account, but it factors in for both guys. You can do some different things when you have wind than when you don’t.''
Quinn wasn't thrilled with his effort, even as the Browns snapped a 12-game losing streak against Pittsburgh.
''I wish I would have had a better game for it, but it's funny how those things work out,'' Quinn said. ''It's hard to describe it. I'm happy for our team, our coaches, our fans. It's been a long time coming after all we've been through this year. It tells you what kind of character you have with the guys on this team.''
