The Quinn Quiz

With all of the random funny Brady Quinn pictures floating around the Internet (Thanks, Deadspin and Mondesi's House!), we decided to blur the line between fact and fiction and show you a set of photos with Quinn in them. You just need to decide if they are real or fake. Which is real and which is fake? Or more appropriately, which pictures have already been taken in real life and which are sure to be snapped in the next few months? Ladies and gentlemen, starting at quarterback for your 2007 Cleveland Browns, #10, Brady Quinn!

I'm just wondering how these people got a camera in there.

These people may share the same names as your favorite Steelers, but they are most definitely different.

Meet the New Coaching Staff - Randy Fichtner

Leading to the start of training camp in July, we'll be taking some time here at IWIWAR to introduce you to the new Steelers coaching staff, culminating with a look at new head coach Mike Tomlin. Click on the Meet the Staff tag below to see previous articles. Today, we'll take a look at new wide receivers coach Randy Fichtner.

Randy Fichtner - WR Coach
Age: 44
Education: Purdue
Professional Playing Experience: None

What to Like: A Meadville native, Fichtner coached with Mike Tomlin at both Arkansas State and Memphis, where he had been the offensive coordinator for the past six seasons. One of his best seasons came with current Carolina Panther DeAngelo Williams in the backfield in 2004, as the Tigers finished 10th in the nation in scoring.

What Not to Like: Fichtner has no NFL experience. And he has a daughter with the same first name as our new running backs coach (Kirby) - that's never a good sign.

Random Internet Find: While there are serious doubts about this, it is always fun when someone speculates on a message board that Fichtner's new house used to be owned by Mr. Rogers.

Carson Palmer Loves the Black and Gold

Cincinnati quarterback Carson Palmer has put up some great numbers in his first few years in the league, but he's had his struggles against the Steelers, throwing seven interceptions in his six career games against the Steelers (well, that's counting regular season games, and I'm pretty sure he didn't throw any picks in that playoff game two years ago because of a guy named Kimo). So it should not surprise anyone that Carson was playing in a celebrity golf tournament last year and managed to hit a wayward approach shot that nailed an 8-year old kid on the back - a kid who happened to be wearing a Steelers jersey. Somehow Carson's golf shots, as well as his passes, just end up going right to the Steelers jerseys.

“I got up there and I said I was sorry, and I said, 'At least you're a Steelers fan, I don't feel so bad,'” Palmer said.

Neither do we, Carson. Neither do we.
