His biggest play last Sunday was his last big play of the season.
Sure, Brady Quinn, the Notre Dame poster boy, finished out the game, turning his 24-yard bootleg into what would be the game-winning points. But Quinn also hurt his right foot on the play, and the injury has ended his season.
His getting hurt was the last thing Browns coach Eric Mangini wanted.

I'm a former journalism professor at Ohio University, and I still enjoy teaching, although I don't do it anymore in a formal classroom.
