Cleveland coach Romeo Crennel had a conference call with Seattle reporters this morning, during which he was asked about Charlie Frye:

“I didn’t decide he wasn’t right for the team. I decided in those 20 minutes that we weren’t playing well enough and I felt like the team needed a change so I changed quarterbacks and went to (Derek) Anderson. Then after that some trade possibilities arrives and came up and we decided to make the trade so we did and then we’ve moved on.

“Charlie is a great competitor. Charlie wants to win. He works very hard at his craft, it just didn’t work out for him here. I know that he will do everything he can to be the best player he can there in Seattle.”

    Thanks for the tidbits, Frank. Did the Seattle reporters get to interview any of the players, and if so, who?

  2. Frank Hughes says:

    Later today we get Derek Anderson, but not until 1:45, which is 15 minutes after the Seahawks start practice.

    How about Romeo Crennel on Brian Russell? I look forward to reading some articles or hearing interviews this week with the players with ties to their former teams:

    Frye, Russell, Joe Jurevicious, Kevin Bentley. Of course none of them will say anything bad about their former teams, but on hearing anything they have to say.

    I dunno. Frye is already 26 and is 3rd on the depth chart at QB. He will need injuries, Hasellbeck’s decline, or to get better than Seneca to move up.

    Frye seems like an anonymous 3rd QB for this team who will already be pushing 30 when it becomes time for a new starter around here. When that time comes it will probably be better to draft a young QB with more upside.

    The other possibility is that this defense continues to improve. If the D is good enough to contend post-hasselbeck than in might be better to just plug in someone with experience like Frye than draft and essentially rebuild the offense.

    The success Anderson is having is defenitely making Frye look a little suspect. Of course, Anderson’s season will be over Sunday once Rocky Bernard gives him a nice crunching. So yeah, I am excited to see Brady Quinn this weekend =)

    News Flash,

    Charlie Frye doesnt fit in with seattle either.

  6. damn, navy, you make judements fast. how the heck can anyone make a determination on Frye that fast? The guy hasn’t even played a preseason game for the Hawks, and allready you know he doe’snt fit? We gave Hamdan a couple years, why not Frye? Look at Hasselbeck–I used to scream for Dilfer, but it worked out–Hass took like 5 years to be worth a damn, and now he is pretty good. Give the guy a chance, failing in Cleveland is not a knock on anyone–Dilfer failed there, and it was mostly due to a pathetic O-Line and a Retard for an offensive coordinator. Same thing could be true for Frye. Maybe if Frye had been kept around this season, he might be playing just like Andersen..hard to say. But give the guy a chance…it would be nice to see Wallace switch to reciever, and who knows, by next year they might do it if Frye learns the offense quickly.
