Cleveland Browns

Still no Quinn

By Marla Ridenour Published: November 1, 2009

Browns starter Derek Anderson completed just 2 of 9 passes for 13 yards with an interception and a fumble in the first half as the Browns fell behind the Chicago Bears 16-0.
His rating was 0.0.

Anderson was already the lowest-rated quarterback in the league. On the final play of the second quarter, Anderson lined up at receiver in the Wildcat formation. After a 10-yard run by Joshua Cribbs, Anderson slinked off the field, obviously disappointed.

Anderson came back out to start the second half and led the Browns on a 30-yard touchdown drive, with the field position set up by a 12-yard punt out of bounds by the Bears' Brad Maynard. Anderson scored on a sneak from the 1, leaving Browns running backs without a rushing touchdown this season.

The stage looked set for the return of Brady Quinn with the window likely passed for him to take 70 percent of the snaps to reach nearly $11 million in escalators. If the Browns have no more overtime games, Quinn could not reach the bonus money now, even if he takes every snap in the remaining games.

But CBS announcers Kevin Harlan and Solomon Wilcots said during the broadcast that they asked Mangini during the production meetings whether they would see Quinn Sunday and he answered with an emphatic no.
