Charlie Frye is out for revenge in Cleveland

Charlie Frye is going to get a chance to exact a little revenge on the Cleveland Browns this Sunday. After being medically cleared to participate in practice, Tom Cable wasted no time in naming Frye the starter. The Ohio native played his college ball at Akron and spent the first three years of his NFL career playing in Cleveland.

In 2007, Frye beat out top pick Brady Quinn and backup Derek Anderson for the starting job only to be benched in the season opener and then traded to the Seattle Seahawks.

In an even more appropriate twist of fate, The Frye Guy will square off against the man who took his job in Cleveland – Derek Anderson. Anderson was named the starter for the Browns after Quinn saw his season come to an end due to a foot injury.

Frye gets the nod over JaMarcus Russell despite the dramatic fashion in which Russell led the Raiders to victory in Denver. Had Russell and Quinn been the starters for this contest, we could have seen a rematch of the 2007 Sugar Bowl.

    I’ve been waiting for this game since the schedule came out! I’ll be in the stands supporting the Silver and Black. I can only hope Frye returns to cold Cleveland and sticks it to his former team.

    It should be a fight to the finish
    hopefully everyone plays clean and
    no cheap shots and the Referee’s
    call a fair game.
