    Well, it’s only halftime, but Brady Quinn is thus far off to a good start as the Browns’ QB. Sure … Denver’s D is weak, but a great first half for the “rookie”.

    I’ve said all along that a bunch of teams needing a QB passed on BQ in the ’07 draft and will end up regretting it … are your hearing me Vikings and Dolphins?

    Charley Weis always felt that Brady would be an excellent NFL QB. While as I noted previously Charlie still has a ways to go learning how to be a college coach, he is second to none in knowing what it takes to be a good pro quarterback. If Charlie thought Quinn has what it takes, then I believe Quinn has what it takes. I expect the Browns are going to reap the benefits of drafting Quinn for many years to come. Maybe it will be like the days of yore, when the Giants and Browns were the class of the league.

    Thanks to the NFL Network and Time Warner, we here on Edgemere Drive did NOT see last night’s game.

    Iverson-Billups trade anyone? I can’t stand it. Everyone and his mother is talking about the positives of this deal but I don’t agree. Iverson is a terrible fit for the Pistons. His style will not mesh with their team first concept. Plus, I think he’ll be a terrible combo with Rasheed and Hamilton. Billups is a cerebral guard who knew how to find these guys. Iverson is a scorer – plain and simple to me. He’s an alpha male who needs roles fulfilled around him by beta males. The Pistons are a unique brand with neither kind. Iverson will be dethroned or Detroit will combust. A list of teams I think Iverson would mesh well with because it is filled with betas:

    1. Milwaukee – hands down. If you put A.I. on this team they dominate. Call me crazy; bash me; I don’t care. I’ve already convinced myself of this.

    2. Toronto – Chris Bosh learned about accepting a role this summer. They don’t have fantastic guard play. Jermaine O’Neal would have to realize that he is not a main option type of player.

    3. Charlotte – with the Tar Heel version of Sean May, not the buffet version. Might have to get rid of Jason Richardson. This would also minimize Raymond Felton’s role, who is maturing into a great little PG.

    4. Minnesota…maybe. A little too much young talent on this team. I don’t know if they’d want to minimize any of these guys’ roles for a 33 year old A.I. Minus Kevin Love (an alpha), this might work. I say that because someone as smart, fundamental, and with the type of range as Love would just be a waste with Iverson. Jefferson and Iverson could be a nice combo. In fact, they could play with just those two and dare other teams to stop them.
