The news out of Cleveland that Brady Quinn has been placed on injured reserve with a foot injury is cause for Elias Sports Bureau to fire up the computers.
Has there ever been an NFL game this late in the season where both starting quarterbacks had a passer rating under 50?
Anderson’s season has been so abysmal even JaMarcus Russell can turn up his nose at his numbers. Anderson has completed 42.9 percent of his passes (56-for-154) with two touchdowns and nine interceptions for a quarterback rating of 36.2.
Anderson had a game against Buffalo this year where he was 2-for-17 against Buffalo _ a game the Browns won 6-3. That was his only win in six starts.
Charlie Frye, should be pass neurological exams for a concussion and start, posted a 38.4 in his start against Denver. Admittedly, it was just one start.
But if Russell can’t play, and assuming Bruce Gradkowski can’t go, then Russell, with his 47.8 completion percentage, 49.6 passer rating and three touchdown passes and nine interceptions, would duel Anderson with with the possibility of a freezing wind coming off the lake.
