Brady Quinn Makes Historic Start

According to the Romeo Crennel, Matt Cassel may not be able to start the game against the Bucs due to a concussion. This leaves former first-round quarterback and first openly gay active NFL player Brady Quinn as the starter for Sunday. What a day for gay rights!
What? Seriously? Even with that hair? Huh, go figure.
“He hasn’t started a game in a while, but he’s played in the league, he understands what it takes to run an offense and run a team,” Crennel said in a conference call with Tampa Bay media. “And I think he’s been preparing his whole time in the league and many times, as he always says, he’s always been one play away. And so if it’s determined that he gets the next play as he did on Sunday… I think he’s going to operate the offense efficiently.”
That’s a whole lot of words to say very little, so that makes me think Romeo is a bit nervous to start Brady against the Bucs. But Brady should take a little comfort in the fact that he probably won’t get rushed from the edges too much. The Bucs have exactly three defensive ends on their roster. Michael Bennett is obviously the best of the three, so he’s likely going to see a lot of extra chipping and some double teams. We may see more of Dekoda Watson than we have so far this season since he has been known to rush from the edge in the past. But it’s a shallow defensive end bench right now. The defensive tackle are really going to have to collapse that pocket and make Brady uncomfortable up the middle. And I would have had a great joke for that last sentence if I hadn’t just learned what I learned.
