Sound-off: Quinn or Whitehurst?

    We recently had an interesting turn of events involving quarterbacks in the AFC West. Denver traded for Brady Quinn and Charlie Whitehurst was traded from San Diego to Seattle.

    Both players are unaccomplished in the NFL. Quinn was 2-7 as the Browns’ starter last year and Whitehurst has never thrown a pass in a regular-season game.

    Our sound-off question this week is for football fans in general, not fans of a particular team. Would you rather have Quinn or Whitehurst? Whitehurst, despite never playing, was essentially more expensive than Quinn, who was a first-round pick three years ago.

    Seattle and San Diego switched picks in the second round (the Chargers now have No. 40 and Seattle now has No. 60) and Seattle gave up its third-round pick next year. Denver sent little-used running back Peyton Hillis, a sixth-round pick in 2011 and a conditional pick in 2012.

    If you were starting a team and you had to choose between Quinn and Whitehurst, whom would you take? Would you take Quinn, who has struggled but is only 25? Or would you take Whitehurst, who has all the tools but is green and is already 27?

    Quin was with the Browns who have no real good coaching staff to develop him. Furthermore his playing time only damaged him.

    Whitehurst has been with San Diego under one of the best developmental coaches Norv Turner. Here he called in plays learning the system. Furthermore he served in a good team with a good system under Rivers one of the best QBs in the league and Volek one of the best backups.

    Really couldn't ask for a better NFL prep background.
