Sad news today, as we discover the Steelers won't get to tee off on Brady Quinn just yet. That's because the Browns have announced that the eminently mediocre Charlie Frye will be getting the nod in his place.
Romeo Crennel is trying to mess with our heads, as he hasn't even designated Quinn as the back-up for Sunday's game. Which means, should the Steelers concuss Mr. Frye, we'd likely just have to deal a couple Derek Anderson interceptions. Where's the fun in that?
With Quinn's holdout for part of training camp, this was pretty predictable, though unfortunate nonetheless. All is not lost: barring a tragic crotch-grabbing episode, Quinn should be starting by the time Cleveland visits Heinz Field in Week 10. And I think that's the one we'd all really prefer he started.
