Brady Quinn Makes Historic Start

Don't know how I could have thought otherwise.

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.

It never fails to amaze me how coaches, or people in general, can talk on and on without actually saying anything. When run through a bullshit translator, Romeo Crennel’s quote probably reads, “Matt Cassel hasn’t played well this year. But now that Brady Quinn is in the lineup, we’re really fucked since he hasn’t played much, and when he has played, he hasn’t looked good. Jamaal Charles is going to be getting about 50 carries in this game.”

I have seen this movie before. You know where the backup QB comes in and lights up the opposing team. Sometimes, in the past, that team has been the Bucs. I am hoping that this time we get to light up the backup QB. The Chiefs are eminently beatable and to not win would undercut the progress the Bucs have made this year. Also, as a side note, I still resent all the positive attention KC got for making the playoffs in 2010. They got there playing in the weakest division and playing the weakest schedule but all we heard was how this was a great young team. The Chiefs are overrated and need to be spanked and sent to bed with no supper. Go Bucs.

I didn’t know Brady Quinn was in the movie Magic Mike.

Don’t get me wrong, I am not trying to get rid of Legarrett Blount. But, with the Cardinals losing their starting RB, I wonder what they would give for him? They have the defense. If you add an RB the quality of Blount, then you can really do some damage. I would take a king’s ransom to get him out of Tampa, but maybe the Cards are willing to pay it.

It’s final, the 7th member of The Village People will be starting at QB for KC Sunday. I’d like to see the Bucs fill the box(Something Brady would no nothing about) to stop Charles and force Queen to throw at our DBs.
