When Brady Quinn was drafted, a lot of people talked about the hope that he’d be the guy who went head to head with ben Roethlisberger and excercized the demons that face the Cleveland Browns in their ‘rivalry’. The Browns have lost 18 of their last 19 to Pittsburgh dating back to 2000. They’ve beaten the Steelers only three times since their return as a franchise, with Tim Couch being at the helm all three times (last in 2003).
The Steelers have found a guy with a mastery over the Cleveland Browns organization. Ben Roethlisberger has been dominant. In his six-year NFL career Ben Roethlisberger has never lost to the Browns. He’s 10-0 lifetime with a 97.1 rating against the men in the orange helmets, including several heroic and gut wrenching fourth quarter come from behind victories.
As the focus shifts in this post back to Quinn, consider how Cleveland-like it is that the kid has been in the league three years, and this is his first start against the hated division rivals. It just hasn’t worked out like you draw it up; and that leaves the organization and upper management to blame. There is no way that this kid’s first crack at the Steelers should come when we’re 1-11 in his third season with an inexperienced crew around him.
But who knows. The Michigan Wolverines had shifted the balance of power in their rivalry with the Ohio State Buckeyes until Jim Tressel arrived on campus. You never know what Quinn could do for the Browns against the Steelers. Some guys build a career out of beating certain teams. Tim Couch played pretty well against Pittsburgh. While I think it’s highly unlikely that Quinn open up his career against the Steelers with a win tomorrow night, there’s always that chance. That’s why they play the game.
Right now, the Steelers are 0-0 when the Browns start Brady Quinn at Quarterback. That record will sit undefined until tomorrow night, and then we’ll all learn something. While it’s probable that the Browns slide against the Steelers continues, we don’t know a thing until the final gun sounds.
We know what is at stake for both parties, and we’ll dig into that sometime before kickoff tomorrow night. But clearly Brady Quinn is trying to define himself as a leader for this young Browns team at a time when nothing else is defined for this organization. That’s why this is the most important game for the Browns all year. For Quinn, this is his Super Bowl. This is a big game. A win at home against the Steelers when they’re reeling in his first start against them; that’s how fans will remember Brady Quinn.
That’s why you hope that for one moment his star shine brightest right now. You never know what legacy this could be the beginning of.
