One thing is definitely for sure, and that is there is an angel (No, I don’t think it’s Romeo Crennel, at least this time around) out there that is looking out for Derek Anderson. Back from the dead a.k.a. the bench is Derek Anderson.
With the Browns missing another playoffs and Brady Quinn out for the season, we are once again saying "there's always next year". But if you really think about it, that next year starts now or at least next week.
Derek Anderson's game for the remaining of the season will have lasting affects that will carry out next season or years to come. If Derek Anderson lights it up again just like last season, then what?
It probably means that we have two quarterbacks again next season. And I always hear people say "if you have two quarterbacks, then you don't have one" or something like that. And people will probably be happy with that, but remember that's what we were feeling at the beginning of the season when we had pro bowl quarterback and a first-round draft pick quarterback waiting on the wings just in case the pro bowler goes down, and look at where we're at.
Another outcome if DA plays well is that Brady Quinn gets traded which could fetch the Browns at least a second-round draft pick. Another outcome if DA plays well is that he gets traded and could fetch the Browns at least a second-round draft pick.
I just hope that either one of them gets traded because I just really don't believe in having two competing quarterbacks. And, they're both young enough to have time and really become a solid quarterback so long as the team around them is solid and as fans learn to have patience or two.
Now what if DA plays like the DA of this season, you know 50% completion, play bad two straight weeks then play great enough the third week to salvage his job and do it all over again, that probably means that he's gone.
If he's gone, he is either let go which means that we will get nothing out of him, not a pick. But then, the Browns could keep him, you know just in case Brady Quinn is just as big as a bust.
I just hope that if DA plays well, he'd play like the next coming of Joe Montana. And, if DA plays terrible, I hope he'd play like the next coming of Ryan Leaf. I just don't want him to play mediocre where we would be guessing who the real Derek Anderson is.
Now if Derek Anderson could just make his angel come and play with him on the field on Sundays or have his angel look out for Brady Quinn.
