Brady Quinn Learned Teammate Qualities from Charlie Weis

It appears Brady Quinn learned all about throwing teammates under the bus from his old mentor, and fellow stand-up guy, Chuck Weis.

According to this story from ESPN, Quinn gave the hand signals Derek Anderson would be using in a scrimmage to the defense so it would be harder for Anderson to succeed. You know, the same Derek Anderson Quinn is competing with for the starting Browns QB job.

Derek Anderson said the radio receiver in his helmet wasn't working Sunday, so he had to work with hand signals. Anderson said Brady Quinn, who was quarterbacking the White team, schooled White defenders on those hand signals, which made it harder for Anderson to work a drive filled with short passes.

Great guy.

(Thanks to reader Joey for the tip.)

I thought there was a code you didn't break- teammates, offensive allegiance...guys in the same position.

Quinn's a tool. But, I just watched the '03 game on DVD- dude got hit a lot that game, he was a tough SOB. But, I still really enjoyed watching him getting stuck by Phillips over and over.

i thought there was a code too - that if you're in the nfl, you agree not to be a crybaby.

also: i don't trust crybabies. do you?

anderson has an excuse for everything. i don't care why he sucked on this past sunday or on any sunday - i just know that he sucks. trade him, let quinn start, and let's move on.

Because Quinn has shown so much? Because Quinn has won so many big games? (name them- college or pro)

Quinn's 66.6 rating is rock solid, no doubt and his 50% completion percentage is great too...I guess you've convinced me- The only quarterback that the Browns should have on their roster is Quinn.

Just wait until the drama happens in a few years when Jimmy Montana does something even worse to get the third string job for the Montreal Alouettes.

In Quinn's junior and senior years, which is typically when a QB can be winning games for you, his record was 19-6 (I'll discount the first two years b/c TW was involved, ask Jake Locker how that turns out). The games lost were vs MSU, vs USC, vs OSU, vs Michigan, @SC, and vs LSU. No bad losses among those. Those were all really good to great teams who all had more talent and depth than the 05 and 06 teams.

Check out the games where ND needed a clutch drive from Quinn in those two years.

MSU 05 - led them from down 21 in second half to OT

USC 05 - Quinn played brilliantly that game. Check out the 8 play 87 yard drive with 5 minutes to go. There is a video online of all the plays. Flawless execution by Quinn, not one incompletion.

Stanford 05 - game winning drive with 2 minutes to go. Zero incompletions again as he marched the team down the field.

Georgia Tech 06, Michigan State 06, UCLA 06, etc. He answered the bell every single time a clutch drive was needed.

Quinn may or may not turn out to be a solid NFL qb, he may or may not be a massive tool, may or may not be coming out of the closet soon....but you can't say he wasn't a great college QB. He was clutch when he needed to be, rarely threw INT's, solid completion percentage.

Obviously, its hypothetical but if ND had any kind of defense in 2005, Quinn and ND could and should have been playing in the National Title Game.

and in theory, communism works.

The MSU 05 - Notre Dame still lost as it was in South Bend

MSU 06 - The game was more a result of the Spartans choking the game away than anything else. MSU had a huge lead int hat game and had no reasonilbe reason for losing other than a massive choke job, so it is not anything Quinn did.

USC '05 - the justification of the Weis era in South Bend. Notre Dame almost (but still didn't) beat USC.

Standford 05 - seriously? You think Stanford is a good win?

I do not doubt Quinn was a warrior that had to perform behind an awful offensive line, but let's hold off a minute on naming him a "great" college QB. "Great" college quarterbacks lead their teams to good bowl games without the system being stacked in their favor.

You douche bags aren't really buying this story are you? Don't trust chicken little (Clayton) on this - the Cleveland papers have already talked to Mangini and the players - the comments by Anderson were a big joke.

And give credit where credit is due with Quinn - he was a big time college QB. That program went to absolute $hit after he left. He carried those ND teams on his back to 2 BCS bowls (seems like a group of Boiler fans could probably relate - Drew Brees anyone?)

And don't go citing Quinn's 66.6 rating and 50% completion percentage - he's played 12 quarters of NFL football - 6 of which with a broken bone in his throwing hand. But he's not a pu$$y, so he toughed it out.

I agree that Quinn was a FANTASTIC college quarterback, but using that as an argument to be an NFL starter is ridiculous.

Quinn is the man. He was in South Bend (I was at all of his home games and the games at Purdue, including the asskicking in '05 w/ Samardjiza making sick grabs and his Notre Dame debut loss in '03) and he will eventually be a badass in the NFL. Put a guarntee on it.

I'm also glad that somebody pointed out that Anderson was JOKING when he made those remarks, but you can't really tell what his tone was when he said those comments if you were reading them and not actually interviewing him(a very big problem in bloggers acting like they are reporters).
I grew up in South Bend, and come from a very pro-purdue family (it's tough, especially when arrogant IU pricks are always belittling you...a$$holes). I go to Purdue right now and it really pi$$es me off to see my own kind constantly talking isht about ND when they have no proverbial reason with their rhyme.
