Crennel indicates Quinn will get 'a few more reps' in practice
"We will definitely try to get the other guy [Quinn] ready and ready to go," Crennel said. "We'll see how it progresses from there. [It means] probably a few more reps in practice right now."The change in tone provides a window into the shortened leash with Anderson. Coming into the season, Crennel, the rest of the Browns' coaching staff and general manager Phil Savage said they were behind Anderson as the starting quarterback. But after an 0-3 start and a horrendous 43.5 passer rating this year, the team is starting to waver from that claim, despite Quinn being an unproven commodity.
"If we decide to go with him, we just have to put it on the fact from what we've seen in practice and what we feel he's able to do," Crennel said of Quinn. "There's no hard evidence that he will have more success."
