Brady Quinn honored the Washington football team this week.
The setting was Thursday’s Dan Patrick Show when Patrick asked Quinn, “Which team should stay with quarterback Miami, Indy, Philly, Niners, Washington?”
Quinn asked, “For next year?”
Patrick: “Yeah, like you’re stuck in the position. “
Quinn: “Honestly, I feel like everyone except Washington. “
Washington is the one that interests me as where I think you are coming back before the season. I still wonder, what was the plan? Ryan Fitzpatrick was going to be the guy and it was going to be like this? Maybe they’re fighting for the NFC East, maybe not. Considering his age and what is his ceiling if this is the decision you make? So, I never got that whole plan to start with, so this is the only team I can assure you that they will be looking for a quarterback in the offseason.
Ok, two or three things immediately spring to mind.
With Fitzpatrick not even making it to the first half, is it easy later to jump on this decision made by the WFT staff led by Ron Rivera?
Wouldn’t your stated opinion be much more respected if there was a recording of Brady Quinn actually proclaiming this last spring when Washington signed Fitzpatrick?
He also doesn’t overlook any NFL team that simply signs players in a vacuum. There is a salary cap involved. So Washington signed Fitzpatrick for good value at $ 10 million for just one season.
Third, Quinn also overlooks the historical background that Washington (like other teams) wanted to trade for Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford. However, the Rams threw in the extra first-round pick to win the contest, securing the services of Stafford.
Finally, Quinn is taking risks and is sure to let listeners know that Washington will definitely be looking for a quarterback in the offseason?
Wow, do you think?
I certainly don’t wish Brady Quinn any harm; may he have a successful and successful career and a wonderful family. But isn’t hindsight always 20-20? And even more, when you completely ignore the context?
Just a reminder, if you listen a little closer, how often will you find well-paid analysts stating the obvious as if they’ve discovered this truth?
