Anderson rips Browns fans

After being released by the Cleveland Browns on Tuesday, quarterback Derek Anderson didn’t attempt to thank the fans like Jake Delhomme and LaDainian Tomlinson did upon their release.

Rather, Anderson decided that Cleveland fans belonged underneath the bus that he was taking on his way out of town.

“The fans are ruthless and don’t deserve a winner,” Anderson wrote in an email to the News-Herald when asked for a reaction. “I will never forget getting cheered when I was injured.”

Anderson came out of nowhere in 2007 to led the Browns to a 10-6 mark while being voted to the Pro Bowl in the process. He threw for 3,787 yards and 29 touchdowns, both career records.

But the 26-year-old quarterback from Oregon State appeared to be just a flash in the pan as he started only 16 games from 2008-2009, throwing 12 touchdown passes to 18 interceptions—numbers that would eventually get Anderson benched.

After the impressive 2007 run, Anderson went just 6-12 as a starter over the last two seasons.

“I know at times I wasn’t great. I hope and pray I’m playing when my team comes to town and (we) roll them.”

You have to wonder what the Dawg Pound thinks of this.
