QB projection system!

Which admittenly is irrelevant given the general ignorance of the system around the league (Save Philly). Still, the Packers could make your argument with Rogers since he fell into their laps. The Browns gave up a lot to get Quinn, and they obviously value him.

He should shut up and get paid like the 22nd pick.

Easy for me to say, because it's millions of dollars at stake. But you can't deny the logic.

Same situation as Aaron Rogers. Thought to be drafted high and slipped to the 20's. Was Aaron Rogers paid like a number 1 pick (Where he could have gone) I dont think so. So Quinn shut up get your ass in camp and play for the number 22 pick money.

Re: Is Brady Quinn Being Selfish By Holding Out?

Why is it that people think ill of someone for trying to get the maximum they possibly can? Unless you are foolish, I bet every single person in here would be making the same business decision Quinn is making. If the Browns don't want to pay him what he is asking for they should let him sit the fuck out.

I subscribe to Business 101...get paid the most amount of money doing the least amount of work.

See, I knew I made the right choice by picking you as talent evaluator.But still, the Packers have a Hall of Famer in front of Rodgers, that's the difference. So to some extent, we're talking apples and oranges with those situations.

No, no, no...bro I'm with the biz 101 thing - trust me. But where do you draw the line? Let's face it, Quinn is going to get paid, but then he has to line up on Sunday and make the city of Cleveland fall in love with the Browns again. That's not a business decision, that's a heart thing. Where's the line is what I'm asking?

Re: Is Brady Quinn Being Selfish By Holding Out?

Let me first say that I'm a huge ND fan, and I loved Quinn when he was our QB. He was great for us, and I agree that he probably should have been a top ten pick, although it pisses me off that he and his agent are holding to this perception in their negotiations. What a bunch of shit...I'm sure we all perceive ourselves to be in higher pay grades. While perception is reality in some cases in America this is not one. I agree with all those who posted before saying he hasn't proven shit...and until he does he should take 22nd pick money.

I guess I also see a problem in general with the NFL in this respect, so much of the precious cap money is wasted on shitty ass college prospects that take their first big check and turn into non productive, fat, complaining, bitching, fighting, whining, wastes of money. I mean there is a laundry list of Ryan Leaf's and Lendale White's out there that are dead money for teams...

Ok, time for another beer, I will step down off my soapbox and defer to the kind Gentlemen from elsewhere.

WAR ND
WAR REDSKINS
WAR USMC
God Bless America....and I'm out....

If the Browns think Quinn is a "top QB prospect" (they did trade their 2008 first rounder to get him...and they are Cleveland), thats really all the leverage he needs. Doesn't matter what 31 other teams think.
OK fine, he wants to be paid like a starting QB, that's fine. But if Brady Quinn thinks he can dictate the market value for starting QBs in their rookie season who are drafted in the 20s of the first round, he's got another thing coming.

Let's say Brady Quinn thinks he's going to start for a long time. Jason Campbell's starting for a long time for us, he was drafted 25th. He's getting $8 million over 5 years with a signing bonus of less than $1 million.

Aaron Rodgers didn't get much more than that. Explain to me what leg Quinn has to stand on if he's trying to ask for much more than that?

You can think you're a starter and a franchise QB all you want, but the market is what guides your value. The Browns have no reason to rush Quinn into action in his rookie season; it's not like he's going to be their savior this year. The Browns have all the leverage here, and Quinn's grasping at straws.

Re: Is Brady Quinn Being Selfish By Holding Out?

I mean the key questions here are:

- What makes Brady Quinn any different from Aaron Rodgers and Jason Campbell?

- If the NFL (ie, THE MARKET) had a general consensus in place that Quinn was a top 10 pick, then why did he fall all the way to 22?

Answers:

Quinn's situation is no different from the situations of Rodgers and Campbell.

He fell to 22 because teams felt there were 21 other players who would help their team more. And when some of those teams were offered a trade by anyone interested in trading up for Quinn, the Browns didn't offer enough to make it worthwhile to trade down. That tells me that even the Browns had limits on their opinion of Quinn.

Of course they're going to say "We think Brady Quinn will be a great QB in this league." Doesn't mean he should get paid like Leinart or Carson Palmer. After all, the 'Skins thought Jason Campbell would be great, and he got 8 million over 5 years.

Quinn's got nothing.

Because no team from 9-22 needed a quarterback that badly to pick him up.

The line is drawn when there is compromise. If he doesn't want to compromise let his ass sit out and watch TV.

What happens if he doesn't produce? He'll get kicked to the curb. There is no love in the NFL, all people care about is winning. That doesn't mean you shouldn't try to get people excited but your first priority is to get paid. Once that's out of the way then flirty with "love." If "love" wasn't meant to be, you still got paid

Quinn has no legs to stand on but that shouldn't preclude him and his agent from trying. If I was the owner I would tell him to go suck a d*ck! Plain, simple and to the point, though crude.

Quinn's got nothing.
The Cleveland Browns, perennial losers (and likely this next year also) traded a first round pick to move up and get Brady Quinn.

That did not happen in Campbell's case, nor in Rodgers. Thats the difference here.

I don't think hes looking for top ten pay (if he is, Condon is insane). He's just looking to leapfrog a few pay spots because his services are apparently more valuable to Cleveland than Reggie Nelson's are to Jacksonville, or Aaron Ross' are to the Giants.

I don't think many would disagree with that. The Browns leverage is to say that they took him at 22, and he should be paid accordingly, but if they honestly believe they can sell the farm to trade for a guy, and come back and say he doesnt have more value than the people taken ahead of him...then I can't see this deal getting done anytime soon.

Saying that the Browns have all the leverage here is blatently false. If Quinn doesn't sign, he likely goes back into the draft, and gets picked in the 2nd round next year as a flier. He loses a little money over what he would have gotten by giving in. Meanwhile the Browns totally lose a second round pick in 2007 and a first rounder in 2008, and their entire coaching staff and front office gets whacked!

I'd say Quinn's got the leverage, although its clearly in both parties best interest (as always) to compromise.

I'm pretty sure the Redskins traded a first round pick (among other things) to move up and draft Campbell

Quinn is being stupid. I mean come on..........it is what it is! 22nd pick, 22nd money. Plain and simple. The browns wouldn't have this problem if they would have drafted Troy Smith!
