When it comes to the Cleveland Browns offense this year it has been non-existent all season long.When Head Coach Eric Mangini earlier this season pulledfrom the starting lineup in favor of it was to ignite the offense. So far it has done the opposite and the Browns are lingering at the bottom of ALL major categories on the offensive side of the ball. Quinn's numbers were not good(46/77 passes for 409 yards with 1 TD and 3 Int for a QB rating of 62.1) but as bad as that looks Anderson's numbers are even worse(66/154 passes for 681 yards with 2TD's and 9 Int's for a QB rating of 36.2) throw in the fact that Anderson has BOTH of the Browns rushing TD's this season and it paints a clear picture that changes in philosophy need to be instituted at the highest levels of the offense.
With the bye week upon us it would be the best time for these changes to happen, but with offensive coordinator Brian Daboll being Mangini's friend first and assistant coach second this will not happen. Instead they will have Quinn play in the same stagnant offensive system and after a few weeks of him struggling maybe they will start Josh Cribbs and when that don't work maybe someone will whisper in Bernie Kosar's ear about coming out of retirement, but none of this will help this anemic scoring machine. Team owner Randy Learner needs to find a GM that can make the tough call with out worrying if it will affect their relationship with Mangini. Either that or Mangini needs to grow a set of eye's and recognize that his biggest downfall so far into his Browns tenure is his close personal friend Daboll.
