There's a very good chance Romeo Crennel will be looking for work come Dec. 29. You can argue that he should've been canned already, but with the season in the tank, and for the sake of continuity and whatnot, he's got four more weeks to enjoy all the trappings of being an NFL head coach (free team buffet every Friday! Woo hoo!).
And much like our current lame-duck president, Crennel is making grand pronouncements that, in the long run, probably don't mean a whole lot. And yet, he continues to talk. The latest is certainly good news for Brady Quinn, who could use a pick-me-up right about now.
Regardless of what Derek Anderson does in the final five games filling in for the injured Brady Quinn, Browns coach Romeo Crennel said Quinn will be the starter going into next year's training camp. ...
''I tell you. You guys are something, you really are,'' Crennel said. ''D.A. was the starter, you guys hated him. Quinn goes in and now you're telling me if D.A. lights it up, you want him to be the starter. I have decided that Quinn is going to be the starter. I'm sorry if you don't like that.''
Um, who in the media hated Anderson? He's 13-13 as a starter, and after an impressive 2007 (up till the last month, anyway), he's progressively gotten worse. It has nothing to do with liking him and everything to do with his on-field performance.
