Despite the loss, I was impressed with Quinn's performance Thursday night. He was accurate, mobile, poised, and looked like he was in charge of the team. I know it's only one start but I'm hopeful that the Browns have finally found the quarterback we've been looking for since 1999.
Peter King has his thoughts about Quinn in this article from SI.com. He was impressed with his execution of the "safe" game plan that the Browns had for him. For a more detailed analysis, Football Outsiders breaks down every pass that Quinn threw in the game. The writer analyzes his reads and throws and came away impressed, while admitting it was against a poor defense. Overall he gave Quinn a grade of B+.
What are your thoughts of Quinn's first start and what do you expect for the rest of the year? I think we had better not see DA again unless there's an injury. Brady showed us that he can be the leader of this team and he deserves the chance to play.
