Key stretch for Brady Quinn
By James Walker
It will be important for Cleveland Browns quarterback Brady Quinn to finish strong in order to keep the starting job after this season.
A new boss is coming to Cleveland in Mike Holmgren, who agreed to become team's president Monday. Holmgren will be watching his players closely over the next two games against the Oakland Raiders and Jacksonville Jaguars. But the player Holmgren may watch the closest is Quinn, who is in his third season.
Quinn sat for a majority of his first two years in the NFL and got the chance to become a full-time starter in 2009. He was benched after three games but started the past six. He's thrown for 1,339 yards, eight touchdowns and seven interceptions. Quinn's quarterback rating this season is 67.2.
The Browns have lacked stability at quarterback since returning to the NFL in 1999. One of Holmgren's biggest challenges is to find a long-term solution at the position.
