 BEREA, Ohio (AP) -Browns coach Romeo Crennel made the switch to quarterback Brady Quinn to help the team, not to placate frustrated Cleveland fans.
Crennel said Derek Anderson wasn't benched because of the backlash. The coach made the move Monday, one day after Anderson threw a costly interception in Cleveland's 37-27 loss to Baltimore.
Crennel cited Cleveland's poor offensive production, the club's 3-5 record and Anderson's inconsistency as his reasons for starting Quinn on Thursday night against Denver.
The Pro Bowl quarterback completed only two of his final 10 passes, and left the field with the crowd chanting ``Bra-dy! Bra-dy!''
Quinn will have just one full day of practice before his first NFL start. Anderson expressed disappointment at his demotion but pledged to help Quinn, the former Notre Dame star who has thrown just eight passes as a pro.
